The Cover...

Before I talk about my "Here, There and Everywhere" album I just wanted to answer a question that I got from "pinky" - you wondered about the punches and where I got them from. I ordered them on-line from the US (unfortunately the place I bought them from has sold out completely)...but I would guess you can probably buy them somewhere in the UK too. Good luck :)

And "liberty cottage" - thanks for your comment. I'm very pleased that my albums have inspired you to be "brave", to step away from your "12x12 comfort zone" and order a chipboard album. I'm sure you will have lots of fun with it :) My best tip: don't be afraid - just play :) Remove pages if you feel like it, add others (different sizes, different materials) - the more you play, the more fun and interactive your finished project will be :)

Now, my "Here, There and Everywhere" album... Here's the finished cover:

As I said earlier I decided to go with the red/pink album (rather than the green/blue which would have been a more obvious choice for me)...but I couldn't resist adding just that touch of green to it :)

The cover for these Narratives/Karen Russell albums come with an aperture covered with a transparency on front cover (as you can see in the picture above). So I decided to make use out of this and to create my "front cover image" on the first page inside the album.

(sorry this photo is not 100% straight)

The main image is part of the class materials that Shimelle provided. But I also wanted to add something more to it to actually fill up the space that shows through the window on the front cover and my Ali Edwards stamps came in perfect for this :)

Now I'm off to start printing some photos for my "there" section...

Thanks for remembering my question. Love your album. Just got myself some large jumprings and hope to have a go at one of these.

Very nice looking album! That class sounded really interesting, but I still haven't finished my Journal Your Christmas album for this year so I decided not to take it this time

thanks for the message! :) The cover looks great! I like this class idea, might try it eventually! I almost started my new odd-shaped book, but scooted back to my 12x12. I need more time to get used to it yet, but I do love it lots!!

Keep up the good work :)

Here, There and Everywhere is turning out very cute. I LOVE the bits of green you threw in there. I am a green person myself, so I can appreciate your choosing pink.
