Hey, Simple Stories friends! Marsha here, and I'm excited to share a flipbook album I created using the new Simple Vintage Weathered Garden collection! I always love the Simple Vintage lines, but this one has quickly become a favorite for me! The beautiful patterns, colors, florals, and butterflies found in this collection are beautiful- just perfect for so many types of projects.
I loved the design of the coordinating 6x8 flipbook album, so I chose to use it for my project. I began by cutting out three nested hearts using a variety of patterned papers from the collection. Next, I machine stitched down the middle of the hearts and popped up the edges to add dimension. I added foam stickers and a decorative brad to complete the cover. The printed cover design was so beautiful that I didn't need to add much to it!
For the inside cover, I used a chipboard frame and layered patterned papers behind it. I added foam stickers and bits and pieces die cuts to embellish the page.
For the pages of the album, I used patterned paper base pages and pocket pages. I also enjoy including interactive elements in my mini albums, so I created a flip up by adding washi tape to the top of a trimmed patterned paper.
The flip up reveals additional spots for photos or journaling created using cut apart journal cards, cardstock stickers, and bits and pieces die cuts.
I incorporated another chipboard frame on the next page and added a title with foam stickers. I also used more of the butterfly cardstock stickers to embellish the layout. Did I mention that I love the butterflies in this collection?
I always enjoy using cut apart journal cards in my albums and included several of them on the following pages. I trimmed one into a tag shape and added lace ribbon to the top. The other cards were embellished with chipboard and foam stickers, enamel dots, and decorative brads. A banner from the 12 x 12 banner stickers was perfect for adding to trimmed patterned papers to create my own pocket card.
I used more journal cards on the next page and also created another tag. I used foam stickers, cardstock stickers, and washi tape to simply embellish the page.
For the final layout in the flipbook, I created a vellum pocket to hold ephemera, journaling, and extra photos. I added a chipboard cluster and a foam sticker to the vellum pocket to complete the page.
I loved creating this flipbook album using the gorgeous Simple Vintage Weathered Garden collection. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will see you again soon with more inspiration!
