Oh Happy Day!

A good friend of mine got married last week.  So I spent the weekend making her a little wedding album/memory book using the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chronicle Worn Cover.  It's the new larger format and it worked beautifully along with the new clear page pockets!  I used paper from the new Crate Paper lines, Oh Darling and Studio Board, and a few sheets of Heidi Swapp Color Magic Resist paper for the pages.

Along with that I included anything and everything in my stash that related to love and happiness!   Inside there are photo pages, corner pockets, tabs, and tags.  I also added pockets inside the front and back covers for memorabilia.

This is probably the quickest that I've ever put anything together.  I'm normally a slow worker!  I bought the supplies on Saturday and finished the album around 10pm on Sunday.  I was really pleased with the result and so was the recipient!  I can't wait to use the worn cover to make another album!  Please forgive the quality of these photos...they were hastily taken the next morning in the office, under glaring flourescent lights, before I gave it to her.

The cover and all of the pages were distressed with Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  So many different products were used that I'll just list them here at the end.  If anyone has a specific question about a stamp or die just leave it in a comment and I'll let you know where the product came from.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
