accordian book

I love kits.  What is not to love?  So much of the manual work is done for you, everything is color coordinated and all you have to do is put it together and add your special touch to it to make it your own.  Such is the case with this accordion album kit from The Angel Company – which is from the Natalee  collection .  I kid you not – this was so easy to put together.  It took maybe 10 minutes.  The pieces were pre cut and prescored, so all you have to do is decide how you want each inside page to look.

On the front I used a digital image from TAC Digi Design House, called Cottage Rose.  It’s an absolutely gorgeous image (I’ll be using it often!) and colored it with prisma pencils.  I chose the purple because the patterned paper has shades of purple throughout it.  To “make it my own” I added a purple silk ribbon from May Arts and square rhinestones from Basic Grey.   I’ll add a title on the front later in the small circle tag.

One of the things I like about this kit is that the pages are scored to allow you to actually add things to the inside pockets while retaining the shape of the book.

And – the kit includes a pre cut band to fit around the album so that everything stays in place. 

Here is a look at one of the inside pages.  Each page has a different pocket.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
