Ooh La La - Mini Album

Hello paper friends, Jo here again.
I have to say I am loving the new Ooh La La paper range.  It is perfect for old pics.  I had some all photos of my mum when she was a little girl tucked away in an envelope and this paper range was calling for me to make a mini album.

This post is a little photo heavy but I hope you enjoy.
On the cover I have used one of the ephemera die cuts from the pack and also the Nested Labels Set.
I also found that some of the mixed primrose flowers from the Seasons Greetings collection went perfect with the collection.
On the spine of my book I used the pretty lace and velvet ribbon from the ribbon and lace pack.

So before I added my photos to my pages I made little paper clusters and added some ephemera and also a heart doily.  I kept the embellishments very simple with just a couple of flowers.

I have tucked the other die cut from from the Intrinsic & Ornamental Set behind this photo on the left hand side
On the right had side I created a pocket.  As I was going through the photos I found a few of them had my dear nans hand writing on the back so I didn't want to stick them down.  Those are precious memories!  So a pocket was the perfect place to house them.

The right hand side of this page has a little flip page.  Underneath is another little cluster of papers and a photo.  The flap underneath is blank for journaling.

This page on the right also has a flap that opens to the left

Here is a pic with the flap open.  Underneath those two tags is another pocket to house them in.  I have left the back of my tags blank for journaling.

This photos is a favourite.  It is a photo of my nan and pop and my mum.  They all had their Sunday best on as the queen was in Perth in 1954 and they went to stand on the side of the road to wave at her!.  Those little tags are from the ephemera pack and I have left them there so that my mum can journal on them her memories of that day.

I have made a belly band on the left of  his page to hold another couple of photos.
The page on the left I have kept very simple.  I love this little embellishment!  I used some cardboard and cut two of one of the Intrinsic & Ornamental Set.  I then covered them with gold embossing powder.  I did the process twice and it has come up looking like a real metal embellishment!
Another simple page for the last one in the book.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Until next time
