Here is the 2nd part of my Zig Zag Accordion Album project and you can see my first blog post HERE
Page 9 & 10
The fold out element will house 3 photos which will be 3" x 3" photos. I decorated the outside of this photo areas with elements from the 6" Fussy Cut Papers.
Page 11 & 13
For these two pages I actually thought it would be great to leave them as pages just to focus on photographs. There is also space to add journaling too. As the backing papers are so beautiful, I didn't feel as if the pages needed anymore decoration.
Page 13 & 14
Page 14 has a belly band and I thought it would be different to make the mini photo book be a feature placing it around the band, tying in place with a ribbon bow.
Photo mounts, tags & mini books
The house shaped booklet was made using a topper from 12" paper collection. I used the shape as a template to create the booklet.
I have created a walkthrough video showing the album off. It shows how it opens and also how you can work in the album on a flat surface. You can also see lots of the additional accessory elements I have added too: photo mounts, mini books, tags etc.

Ciao Bella Paper Sparrow Hill Collection
To create my album I used two 12"x12" backing papers from Sparrow Hill Pattern Pad. Just using these 2 papers, I covered all the backgrounds.
Next using toppers and tags from the A4 Creative pad, I made photo mounts, mini books, decoration for belly bands or closures.
All my additional decoration has been made using the 6" x 6" Fussy Cut Papers.
At the moment as this is a new collection, there are limited places to buy the collection HOWEVER I do know that there is a shop on Amazon called Susie B Supplies who supply a huge range of Ciao Bella Paper Collections.
I hope you enjoyed the walkthrough of the album on YouTube and both of my blog posts showing all the pages. It was a very easy collection to create with as there is just so much imagery to work with.
Thank you ever so much for visiting and I really do appreciate your support in my creative journey.
