Seaside theme midi album


A while back I bought an album kit from Hydrangea hippo HERE and I just recently made it for my brother Niall and his fiancee Marie-it was a super kit packed full of goodies & perfect for the couple :)

 This is the cover everything was in the kit bar the embroidered fish and the alphas I used....
 The GORGEOUS embroidered fish is from Little Snippets etsy shop HERE and the alphas are by Amy Tangerine...
 All the other goodies came in the MEGA kit I didn't follow the instructions fully as I like to add my own style but the instructions with the kit are excellent...
 All these lovely fibres and charms were in the kit-I just added the Tim Holtz swivel clasp and the film strip piece...
 This is the inside of the cover...
 All from the kit-papers, stickers and die cuts are Authentique!
 The kit has the best trims as does the etsy shop!!
 It is a gatefold album so now it looks like this...

 I LOVE all of the buttons....
 I liked the tag "pages" too they add a lovely element to the book...
 The tags open like so...

 These hydrangea punches were also in the kit!
 This cardstock page was embossed so when you spray on your colours the pattern still shines through-the lil shells are too cute!!

 I really like this mini tag too...

 The file folder page is another FAB addition...
Here is what I added inside the folder...
 And finally...the back page
 How cool is the silver doily!
And this is the back cover when the book is all closed up!!

Thanks for visiting,
