Flap Book, Part 2

Hello and welcome! I was due to post this yesterday but the day simply got away from me, sorry. I'm posting pictures of the photo/journal mats I made for my flap book project above. You can click here to see my tri-fold pages using Bo Bunny's pretty Country Garden paper collection. I was playing along with the CR84FN64 Color Challenge  and I did not include these because some of the papers incorporate orange and pink which were not part of the challenge colors. Most of the photo/journal mats fit into pockets, underneath the left and right side, and were easy to create by adhering double sided tape to three sides of my designer paper. I love doing this because its almost like a treasure hunt when you start going through the book and discovering all the hidden stuff inside. ;) Okay, lots of photos so let's get started.

First flap page, the banner is a cut out by MME & I
used pages from SMASH pads as a way to record
& personalize this flap book.

Third flap page with a die cut tag  by Verve and I created
a side pocket using paper from the collection.

Afternoon Muse.

More pretty paper from the collection and a MFT File
Tab die.

Cut out from the paper collection which
will make a great place to journal.

Photo mat that coordinates with the cut out on the third
tri-fold page of my flap book. Note: the file tabs were
added to make it easier to pull the photo/journal mats out
from underneath the pages. 

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it inspires you to create your own book to record those special times & memories. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

My goodness, Lisa, this is a real labour of love - every single mat and page and tag is beautifully thought out, and they all blend and tone together so brilliantly, in terms of colours and images. It's going to be so treasured! Beautiful work...
