8x8 Rooster Provincial Album

Embrace the rooster! Here's my latest creation using a combination of Recollections "Rooster Provincial" and Paper Studio's "Countryside Villa". I went with a French Provincial/countryside look with this one and I can't rave enough about how awesome these papers are! The Paper Studio papers have a nice texture to them and the Recollections papers have many coated sheets and vibrancy. The two play nicely off each other with exciting possibilities.

This album is 8x8 with 14 pages including front and back covers. There's tons of room in there for photos and journaling with an additional 17 pull-out tags. I've designed a few new features for this one including a small booklet, quad-fold feature and double accordion. I've handmade most of the embellishments in this album as these papers had a tag sheet and a rooster page for fussy-cutting individual roosters and that's about it. I've made several fabric flowers and incorporated lots of die-cuts, stamping, embossing and beading to the pages. It's a nice thick and HEAVY album! Lots of fun creating this one!

This album will be listed on eBay tonight 10/23 ending on 10/30.


I'm looking for ideas/suggestions for some paper lines to use in the near future. If there's something you need a little inspiration to use or would like to see, please feel free to leave me a comment. I'll be starting a new one today featuring Graphic45 "Birdsong".

Hope you're having a great week!
