Creating this album was truly a labor of love. I designed the jar template and cut it from thick cardstock. The jar was covered with a strawberry print paper and then I designed the lid. The lid was an experience. It was cut out to form, scored with a knife, shaded and then inked twice. The authentic look is amazing. Each page was then created and built on the previous one. I used metal Ball jar inserts (under the flower), antique lace, a special made tag that says "Memories of Home", a flower and ribbon - Home Sweet Home.
If you have any questions, just let me know and I will be glad to help.
Thanks for looking and leave me comments.
