The album covers were made from two sheets of Kraft Outlet Precut Chipboard Full Sheet pieces that I glued together and then covered with Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock. More paper layers and tons of the embellishments that go with the paper collection were then added. I printed the title tag on my computer and then gave it a single layer of UTEE(Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) which gave it the wet look.
Catalog Lunch Bag Kraft envelope. This envie measures 6"' x 9" so yes this is a pretty good sized mini (10" x 6 1/2"). There are four of each of these envelopes in the album and three of the other two kinds. To hold the pocket closed I punched three circles from some more of the chipboard that I used to make the cover plus a circle of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock. All these were glued together and covered with a coating of Triple Thick. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the middle and added an eyelet. The "buttons" were glued to the front of the envie with a piece of hemp twine attached to the back of the top one. The twine just wraps around the bottom and top buttons to keep the envelope closed. Inside each of these pockets is a huge photo mat. All the papers and envelopes were inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink and machine stitched.
Lunch Bag Kraft #10 Standard Envelope. The photos on these pages will be fairly small so I didn't want to take up any space with journaling. To create room I made a pocket in half of the top layer of designer paper. I just cut a small slit and used a circle punch to create a little tag pocket. The tags I used are the Large Kraft Shipping Tags with a little bit of Twill Tape added for easy pull out. There are photo mats on both sides of the envelope and two long photo mat tags for each envelope that slip into the end of the envelope that has been trimmed and also punched with a circle punch for easy pull out.
The last type of "page" I added to the album is created with Lunch Bag Kraft CD Sleeve envelopes. There are only a few embellishments on the inside of the album. I have tons left to use but want to coordinate them with the actual photos so I'm holding off on finishing the album. This page also has a photo mat tag in the pocket and I have added a Small Kraft Shipping Tag with Twill behind the embellishment on the front.
I'll share the completed album after the trip! By the way, if any of you have visited Yellowstone or the Redwoods in Northern California I'd appreciate any tips you might have.
