Album with corrugated card covers

Hi you all! 
This week I managed to finish the little album which I started some time back. I couldn't find the back cover anywhere, even after tidying up (or perhaps because of it!) so I made a new one. The pages inside have been made from card-stock in white, cream and vanilla. I bound it together with string and ribbon. I lined the inside covers with some printed card-stock, that I recently got from Christine. (Thanks again!)

The paper is white, I don't know why it looks pale blue here!

Have a great weekend you all, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!

  1. What an extra special made book this is. I like the way you have used corrugated card with gold, the bookmarks and the back page, but of course I like all of it.

  15. How unusual and pretty your book covers are. Whatever the front and the lost one were like these must be better. What a desirable little book, so lovely I would be afraid to draw in it if it were mine!

  18. I loved the front, now I equally love the back cover. I am not sure that CI stock those images any longer which is a pity as they are fabulous (although very saucy!).
    Enjoyed my visit - I've been spending less and less time on-line but so good to catch-up.
    Wishes
