Hey everyone! I made this chipboard album in the vintage style. For the cover I used some vintage style paper and added this wooden "traditions" element. I painted it brown. I took this brown piece of paper, and put gold paint all around the edges for a mat. I added some ribbon/flowers/lace and brads to finish up the front. Throughout the rest of the album, I have added stickers, flowers, brads, gens, metal elements, buttons and flowers. I sewed some of the mats to the pages for interest. To bind this album, all I did was take my we r memory punch and make holes for the top and then bind it together using a binder clip. It is a very easy way to get an album together!
