Album Front Cover and Title Page

As mentioned in yesterday's post, this is a vacation album that I created for my sister-in-law and her family. She had been visiting with us in the spring of 2007, and had so much excitement for a vacation planned with her family during that upcoming summer. She described the location, activities that they planned to do, and beachhouse in Oregon well enough for me to put this album together for her. Since it was made in 2007, before I became a demonstrator for Stampin Up, most of the products used here were not Stampin Up. I am posting these pages for design inspiration with the layouts, and I hope you enjoy my posts over the course of 5 days. Please note that I took the photos of the pages while they were in the sleeves, so you may see a bit of glare or color distortion from time to time on the occasional page. Since this gift was given long ago, I can't retake the pics for you, but I think they turned out well enough for viewing on the blog. So... here we go...... :) .......

Front Cover

Close up of the stamped area on the front cover. The album title was printed via computer, then over-stamped using a SU floral background stamp (retired) with Creamy Caramel ink. I love SU background stamps!

I stamped this sentiment (non-SU) on the inside of the front cover. Kind of sets the stage for the pages ahead, don't you think?


This is the title page just inside the front cover. Pictures of the Heathergate beachhouse were found on the internet, and it had a beautiful arched gate complete with a white picket fence out front. It was so picturesque, and I thought it would be a great way to begin their vacation memories. The letters were cut out using my wishblade (an electronic cutter hooked up to my computer). There are white square brads inserted on the title block. Well, I hope this wets your appetite for more - I hope you come back tomorrow for a look at the next 4 pages of her vacation album! Ta ta for now...
