Ultimate Brag Book:: On The Road

Hi Loves!!

Chris left today with his friend Jorge to set out for Florida, by way of Colorado, Kansas, & Kentucky (the Bourbon Trail was a must see for them!). In two weeks, after they fly home (they are leaving his car at our new home), Chris & I will be making the journey ourselves. Chris, Charlie (our furry-baby = golden retriever) & I will be driving the southern route.

I recently watched a pre-recorded class put out by Kathy at Paper Phenomenon that made the Ultimate Brag Book. Wowza!! It's such a great mini!! It's 5x7 in size, but fits up to 48 full 4x6 photos AND still room for journaling, embellishments, and anything else you could stuff in there.

.front & side view.
Look at all those tabs! And they won't get bent because the covers are wider than the pages :D

 .arial view.
This is a great photo to show off the binding!

Some beads, a camera, & an antique frame with the word "Florida" in ueber small print...

 .front cover. 

 .page 1.
A great photo to show off the pockets & the interactiveness of the book. It flips & opens in all different directions. The great thing is.... one "page" (which offers THREE POCKETS) is made from ONE sheet of 12x12 paper!! 

 .stuffed to the max.
And I haven't even added the photos yet!! 

.the stuffing.
I pulled out all the 4 sided photo mattings, tags, journaling spots, tabbed photo tags & distressed diecuts. All this fits into that little 5x7 album. Just need to add photos!! 

Below is a video where I talk about the supplies used and a few tips on how to make it. 

And here is a link to the video if you'd like to make one for yourself :D

I encourage you to visit & join Paper Phenomenon. There are some AMAZINGLY TALENTED WOMEN on there! And while you're there, stop by my page to say hello and be a friend.
