The incredible Wood Albums are perfect for creating your own album however you wish! I LOVE the grain in wood and normally choose to leave it showing by staining or whitewashing it. This time, I wanted to make it POP with color.
I painted the This is Us wood quote with chalk paint, it just makes a statement against the background paper.
I covered the album covers with pattern paper, sanded the edges, then lightly distressed with ink. I then cut eight different pattern papers to 6 x 8" for the album pages.
I bound the album using twine from my stash. When tying off the binding, make sure to leave a little room to allow the album pages to move freely.
I then used cardstock and scrap pattern papers to cut out some accent files from my Cameo Silhouette to add into the album pages.
I am pretty certain I'll be giving this as a gift to someone who would like to add their photos too.
Some of the pages I left blank, which I have not shown in the post.
I made sure that the inside cover pages matched with the same pattern paper, as well as the outside covers.
