Ephemera's Vintage Garden - Paris In My Heart - Project #2

Hello, my friends!

First of all, I just want to thank each and every one of you for the lovely response to my Scripture tag. 
I really appreciate your encouraging words!
I'm looking forward to making more tags to share with you! :o)

Today I'm back with my second project using the "Paris In My Heart" Printable Journal Kit from Ephemera's Vintage Garden!

This time I created a mini album that measures 5 1/2" X 8 1/2".
I kept it simple...with the plan to fill it with photos of my jaunt to Paris.
The front and back cover are chipboard layered with cardstock and the printables. 
The inside pages are cardstock base with a printable page on each side. 
These papers are so pretty that no further embellishment is needed. 
I bound it with rings, added some ribbon and lace, 
and Tim Holtz swivel clasp with a couple of lovely vintage charms.
I must say that this book really feels good to hold.

The kit includes a decorative mini file folder. 
I adhered half of it here for a pocket on the inside of the front cover.
I also added the beautiful clock image.
Then I filled the pocket with kit tags and ephemera.
Isn't the page on the right side beautiful?

The cardstock pages, as well as the printables, have all been inked and distressed.

In between the next two pages I added an envelope.
I made it using my WRMK Envelope Punch Board and the matching cardstock.
It's another great place for cards and tags.

So pretty!
It will be hard to cover up the images with photos!

Here I added the pretty petal card.
On the other side it will open up for my journaling.

More pretty pages!

The pocket on the inside of the back cover is the other half of the mini file folder.
It's filled with more cards and tags.
I added the "Paris In My Heart" from the title of the kit.

The back cover matches the front.

Isn't it a beautiful kit?
Below is a photo of all the journaling cards in this album.
I'll have lots of room to write down stories and locations for all my photos.
Six large tags are included. 
I stamped the back of each with a notebook stamp.
I turned one over so you can see it.

Head on over to Ephemera's Vintage Garden and look at all the fantastic printable kits available!
Consider picking up this wonderful Paris In My Heart Kit for your own use!
Those of you who are not able to print them yourselves can find them in the Etsy Shop HERE.

I am trying to think of another word I can use for this other than 'wow!' That's all I had in my head as I was scrolling through all the gorgeous pages and drooling over the pretty details - LOVE the charm on the front!
No, I'm going to have to go with 'wow!'

Big hugs, Kat x
