My desk is quite empty right now, I've just finished a project and I'm in tidying mode - doesn't happen often lol!!

Warning - photo heavy post!!

This photo folio is what I've been working on 

It's A4 size, and has tons of room for photos - at least 70 but can hold more - lots of pockets 

And lots of flip out pages 

There are some big side pockets for memorabilia

And the centre pages can hold 24 photos on double sided photo mats

I had a ball making it! See my previous post for the basic construction pics, the whole thing was inspired by Hetties travel journal, but it took on a life of its own!

And I used tons of snippets, but created tons more. Doh!! 

So I'm off to check out other desks, I didn't make it round many last week sorry peeps. I'm also going to see who's playing in the Snippets Playground. If you want to join in, click on the links in the side bar. 

Thanks for stopping by

  2. Wow that fab Deb. I thought it must be a Laura Denison.. There is so much room to add photo's & will be a treasured procession I'm sure once filled.

  8. HI Debs, that is amazing! Love the colours, layout- everything. Hope you are well, I'm getting over the chest infection now! Have a great week, Hugs. Shaz #38 xxx

  9. Wow, wow, WOW! It is absolutely gorgeous! I had to pop over from the Snippets Playground to take a look because it was such a coincidence that two consecutive entrants there were called Willis. (And to add to the coincidence, I have that same set of papers in my stash)

  12. Your book is, as we say up here, pure dead brilliant! A great use of snippets too but isn't that just the way of it, it's created more. I have a giveaway on offer so do check out the sticky post at the top of my blog. Have a great week, Elizabeth x #53

  13. That album is tremendous, Debs! It was a huge labour of love. What a wonderful family keepsake. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 16

  14. What a great album, thanks for showing us so many views of it.
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 41

  15. Saw your book on Pixie's Playground and visited your blog to get a better look. I love making albums and Laura Dennison is my favorite. Love the papers that you used.

  16. What a gorgeous album, Debs. I'd love to have a play with that! So many interactive bits. It will be great filled with photos and memorabilia.

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  19. Thanks for your return visit, Debs, and I'm glad you like what I've been up to despite the empty desk!!

  20. What a neat photo book, Deb! And isn't it a good feeling to finish a project and get that desk all cleaned up!

  21. My readers list has arrived back on my dash board so I'm making hay whilst the suns shines(think not as its pe---g down with rain ) before it disappears again. Think I'm going to have to move over to google chrome if I can learn how to download it. Blogger defo doesn't like windows.
    Anyways your photo book is fab. A real labour of love . Those hidden pockets and pull out tabs look very inviting but I put it all back in place honest! hugs Mrs A.


I love reading your comments, so fire away!
