Photo Book - by Toni Herron

Hello crafters, Toni here bringing you another project for Memory Maze.
I spent over 4 hours on this photo book, but no matter what I was doing it just wasn't flowing for me.
Although I'm pretty happy with the finished project now though, remembering not every project can be as awesome as the last or next! 
There are a lot of photos included in todays post, so please grab a cuppa then sit down and relax!

Photo Book


I started off with some white cardstock measuring 6&1/2 " x 12".
I used a recent Magnolia Lane 6x6 paper pad for the pattern paper and some Memory Maze goodies.
The large chipboard piece has been coloured with Pinecone ink then some Glossy Accents and sprinkles of Distress Glitter on top. The delicate butterfly has been coloured with a Purple H2O. It really shines off the page and adds to the flower cluster.

Here is the middle of the photo book / album when you open it. To the left are some tags on the front of a pull out 12" piece. - More on that in a moment -

To the right is this stunning Memory Maze Doily that has been coloured with the Pinecone ink then coated with some Blue Kindy Glitz and a few bling Pearl dots plus the beautiful MM Bling in the middle. Love Love!  This flap piece actually opens up to the right.

This entire side has plenty of room for some 6x4 photos. The Corrugated card is just for display at the moment.
It can be opened to the right for photos or journaling underneath and then pulled open towards the right to reveal more layers.
Plus room for more photos when another left flap piece opens out to the left.
It uncovers some tags for either small photos or journaling.
Now onto the left side.
That gorgeous Memory Maze piece has been coloured simply by using the Pinecone Ink again and some purple Kindy Glitz..
There are three tags up the top for small / medium photos or journaling and again another tag on the bottom. The diecut of the lady, has not been attached.

As you can see it opens out too. Just plain and simple though, no extra embellishments or papers. The back side of this is the same. There is room for two 6x4 photos on either side.

Lastly, I really wanted to show you a brand new stencil out by Memory Maze. I am totally LOVING IT! However, this is how hard my creative process was - no matter what I did, I just couldn't get it to something that suited the book / album. I was sooooo far off it was silly! I eventually cut pieces off. TWICE something went in the bin cause I just couldn't get my colours right with this stencil.
** Absolutely NOT the stencils fault! Completely MINE! :( 
I really do love this design and am hoping that once my crafting mojo is back, I will be able to create something amazing with it!! :)
