Hi! Today I have a different type of project. I am sharing how I made an album by using the full 8×8 paper pad from my latest collection Oh La La. I am not an expert on album making but it sure is a fun project and the result is adorable. And trust me, if I can make an album so can you! Just watch the video for the complete construction.

I kept the cover simple so that I can easily store it on my bookself. No bulky elements or too dimentional flowers… just a little label holder that adds elegance.
The spiral album is 6×8 and I also added cascading flaps that can hold photos as well as journaling for each photo.
There are many book binding techniques, but I always love fast projects so I went with spiral binding for this one.
You will find pages from patterned paper, from vellu or even from acetate. There are flaps, tabs, pockets and photo mats.
all embellishments used as well as every patterned paper you see in this album was from just one 8×8 paper pad. Check the video to see my left overs and how I store them for future use when I stick the photos on my album.
I made sure that the cover is quite big to allow for the album to grow when I add the photos and more embellishments.
