EDITED ON 25 JULY 2011: Ok I have had multiple requests literally everywhere for a tutorial of this album. Well... I don't think a "tutorial" is necessary, since each and everyone of you have your own style on how to doll up an album. BUT... I've made a template for the base of this album and it is available for DOWNLOAD HERE. Just input your email and a link for the PDF download will be sent to your mailbox. Hope that helps! Also, a shout out to Merdrey for the inspiration on the carousel roof! :)
Please note however, that the template is for personal use only. Strictly not for sale and please do not re-upload it anywhere else for others to download it. If anyone wants it, please direct them to my blog to download it. Thank you and have fun! :)
Ok I'm done with the 2-part mini album swap that I hosted and here's what I came up with for my swap partner! It's a carousel-style shadowbox album!
And why do I call it a carousel album? well here's why! it opens up into a "carousel", complete with "roof" and multi-layer "shadow box" like pages! See see! Each page has 3 layers, one inch apart, and photos can be placed at of the layers to create a multi-dimensional look.
As you can see, each page has LOADS of embellishments... which is the whole point of why I designed the album as such. Well, I told the ladies to send enough embellishment to cover one 6x6 page (2 sides), but I think each sent enough to make HALF AN ALBUM! So I had to design something that allows me to expend as much embellishments as I can, yet still allow space for photos and journalling...
Well.. I love photos... And I suck at making videos honestly... But I think a video "tour" can better give a feel of the album so here's one!
A couple more photos... Hope ya like it!
