Inspiration Monday #3

Hi my friends, and welcome to this weeks Inspiration Monday. :)

Like so many of you I love to travel, and I hope I'll be able to travel some places in 2010.
The album I'll share with you today Is a little accordion-album with places I will go and places I dream of in 2010. The album is made from scratch, very simple and fun. You can also use a pre-made accordion album. :)

Here is what my album looks like. It is aprx 6" X 5,5" (inch)

Just let's get started :)

What you'll need:
*2 sheets of 12"X12" craft cardstock
*Scraps of your favorite patterned paper, stickers, chipboard etc. I used all "boyfriend" by Cosmo Cricket, and some aof the COOL new chip Letters :) :)
*6 Photos
*double sided tape
* piece of ribbon and a button

Cut your cardstock in 6"X6" (inch). I used 6 pages for my album.
Score and fold 5 of your pages at 1/2 inch. For the last page you'll cut away this 1/2 inch. No need for the fold, because you have no more pages to add ;)
Use you double sided tape and glue all the pages together, until it looks like an accordion. :)
Add your pictures to the pages.

Now you are ready to add all the pieces of patterned paper, embellishments and titles.

When your Album is finished on the "inside", you cut 6 pieces of patterned paper to cover the back and covers of your album.
Add all the patterned paper to the back of your album.
My cover is pretty simple: just some patterned paper, chipboard, journaling-spot, ribbon and a button to embellish.
here is the back of my album. :)
And all the pages:

Hope you had a great time joining the inspiration-journey with me today.
And please, If you make an album inspired by this tutorial, leave me a note, I'll LOVE to see it :) :)

Have a great week!

I love how you put the pictures in first, then embellished them. Sometimes I spend too much time on the background and never finish things up! Very inspiring :)
