Back to School - the album

If I have to choose one,
my favorite album so far is this
Back to School album.
I designed the back pack shape of it
and very thrilled to embellish
with many details on the process

With the new binding technique I found
at one children story book,
(I sometimes think that I am the one who
have more interest on those books
comparing to my children)
I gladly report that the album
will have enough spare space to contain
all your bulky embellishment, photos,
pop up, journaling, and everything else
that you can think of.

Even a black board!
small one only please.

And for me,
an interesting album should have
a 'woower' factor on each page.

Like these.

The pattern papers I chose for 
covering the chipboards are all very pretty
and love love love them,
so I thought they will be so wasted
if I put big photos or embellishment
straight on them.
Instead, I make a flip like these,
so you still can see the background papers.
And the photos later to be add on
also not too big that will cover them up

And who will not love 
a pop up album inside the album?

Many pockets to store all journaling cards
that contain details of your kids' class info,
teacher's name or class projects.
and I even think to copy their report books 
every year, and shrink those books,
so they will fit into these pockets.

Whatdaya think?

Hanging embellishment made from
the sticker sheets + chipboard
 that will make the back pack seems real.
(The untidy back pack, I mean.
I love the untidy back pack.)

I will add more for sure.
You know how I love something hanging 
or popping out from my album that make people 
want to touch to feel them
with their hands.

It's such a treasured feeling.

with an album as cute as this one,
who will not want to be back to school
every year gladly?

Last but not least,
I add a mica box
to store the finished album.

So it will be safe from dust, dirt, germs,
ice cream, crayons, chocolates, play dough,
dirty little hands, and more.
So everyone will enjoy it longer.

Love love love.

See you soon at school...
I mean,
at my next class!

Love you all!
