Beach Album



Awhile back I took a class at Scrappn' & Savvy from Terri Burnette.  This is the album class where we made this suitcase that opens into an album.  I think I posted the suitcase but not the insides.  I have been working on getting it completed for many months now.  Seems I just couldn't get back into finishing it once I came home from the clas

I have taken this project to many day crops and retreats but just couldn't get it finished.  Well, yesterday we had our Scraptabulous Day Crop and it was the number #1 priority on my to do list for the day.  I finally finished the project.  It did take several hours to complete but it is done!

The suitcase is made from two 5 x 7 art canvases which we painted with distress inks to make look old and worn.  We build a shelf on the inside to hold some beach memorabilia, shells, sea glass and what nots. 

The paper line we used is Authentique called "The Open Sea."   The mini album uses all the embellishments that came with the paper line plus a few sheets of matching card stock.  This little album holds a lot of pictures.  I also embellished the front of the suitcase with some of the post cards from the collection.

A trip to beach is in order to fill in the pages.  Hope you enjoy this cute album.....
