My Family - Vintage Mini Album | Scrapbook with Box

Hello guys
Welcome back to my blog...and today I have a new Mini album/ Scrapbook for you all. This one is custom made using vintage papers from Eno Greetings Retro Series paper pack PS003. These paper are very very vintage and super fun to work with...They have some cool oldie typewriters, gramophones, pocketwatch and other vintage images included in the pack. I have used some metal charms, diecuts and stickers which are part of this collection...super fun project. This is the 16th mini album I have made on commission since September 2017 using these papers...however this is the last one in this series as the papers have been discontinued.....its a little sad.

To begin with, this album measures 8.5" by 6.5" and has a 3 3/4" thick spine. There are 8"by 6" 5 interactive pages and have many pockets, flips, photo mats and journaling tags. This album can hold 60 plus 5" by 7" size pictures and of course smaller ones too.

The front of this album is decorated with beautiful papers which come with gold accents and black accents which is awesome in real. A beige lace runs on the front and back cover which is sourced from local stores. I have a shaker window in the front with MY FAMILY sentiment and filled with super fun sequins in all shades of gold, silver, clear and back along with some gold sparkle dots. To add the finishing details, I added a pocket watch charm with a chain in the front and a Gold heat embossed chipboard sentiment Sweet Memories on the spine.
The box made to house this album is 10 3/4" by 83/4" by 5 1/4" and is made from scratch using 1400gsm chipboard. I have used black cardstock to cover this album as well the box. I have kept the box pretty simple and also used pattern paper to decorate it.

I have a video for the same where I show you the album in detail...I encourage you to watch it.
