The Princess Diary - Part 2

About two weeks ago I published a post about a mini album I was doing for a friend who recently gave birth to her fourth daughter. I had shown the cover of the album that was aptly titled 'The Princess Diary'. Today I will be sharing the inside pages of the album that I have finally completed. I have followed a fairy tale theme for this project in my ultimate favourite colour combination of black, white and pink!

The picture above is first page of the album. I used a pink envelope as the page base. Then I used a fabulous black and white paper from the DCWV Formal Affair stack as the next layer. Using the spellbinders renaissance heart die I created that fantastic intricate border all around the page on which I added some randomly placed pearls. A silver heat embossed candle stand laser cut and some pretty pink daisies finished off this page.

The following page pretty much mirrors the first with a continuation of the story. I have added s chipboard frame that I once again embossed silver for my friend to add her photograph and a few flowers on the corner for a girly touch.

For the following 2 pages I decided to use the Sew Ribbon lacing tool to create a pretty design on the bottom of the page. The ribbon trims are from the We R Memory Keepers range at Itsy Bitsy, love that shiny bling version! Really makes this colour scheme pop. And how about that gorgeous paper from the DCWV Formal Affair Stack! Isn't it mesmerising!

Next I once again used some chipboard border embellishments which I heat embossed silver to add a pretty flourish for the page. The La Creme chipboard embellishments were a great addition not to mention the lines of pearls that really seem to add glam to the page!

I used a burst of the Itsy Bitsy Tie Dye Gypsy flowers for the next page, I couldn't resist packing the space with them, they were so pretty and vibrant, perfect for my colour scheme. And how pretty is that little dress embellishment! Gotta love the stuff Itsy Bitsy comes up with!

On the next 2 pages, I made space for photos of the four little girls. They are all very close in age - 5, 3, 1.5 and just born so their pictures would look so sweet on these spaces. The Couture Creations scallop rectangle die came in handy for this page as well as the forever handy alphabet tags and the gorgeous Camden Cottage flowers. 

Finally for the last 2 pages of the album, I kept the pages simple with a space for a single memorable photograph. The paper background was so pretty so I didn't have to do much to jazz up the page. As a title, I used some We R Memory Keepers Tags that were not only text appropriate but coincidentally complied with my colour scheme as well! How cool is that!

Finally if you missed the post with the cover of the album, I've added a picture here for you. For more views and closeups, here's the link to the earlier post. The binder rings from Itsy Bitsy kept all the pages together which I punched using my trusted 'Cinch' binding tool.
