If you haven't got one of these babies yet -- OMG!! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??
They're made by K&Co, and come with LOTS of accessories.
and here it is finished. (I think)
I've used some G45 Le Circque paper, Tim's tissue tape, and Rusty Pickle/Kaiser alpha stickers. I inked the embossed cover and sanded the edges of the paper. I also made the label using dies and a black pen. (the pen that comes with the album is a nice writer at one end, and a glue stick at the other)
Inside, I've done a couple of pages...
On this page, I used a cut-up ATC pocket page, to hold photos and other bits. It lifts up to reveal yet more pictures underneath.
The tape is another SMASH product, which I LOVE. Also I've attached 'flags' to the plane tickets (SMASH) and there are stickynotes as well (also SMASH accessories).
Here's another page I have done -- not sure if it's finished yet....
To make the tree, I glued paper strips down onto some white card, then laid the tree diecut (Tims) onto it, and free-hand drew the leaves shape around the trunk. Then it was just a matter of cutting and gluing them together.
The birds' nest is made by wrapping string round two fingers, then gluing it to a disc of card, and finishing with some stickybacked pearls. I jabbed a blue heart pin through it, too, but you'll have to squint to see it.
