What's new this month at Alpha Stamps? Vintage albums with a beachy vibe! Here's a little souvenir album I created with all the fun new products. Hopefully it brings to mind someone's long ago summer fun memories. This book has so many pages that I'm just going to post a couple of my favorites here. 

The cover. Can you believe it's made from a collage sheet image, just glued to shirt cardboard? I think it looks like real leather! All the inside pages are made with 7Gypsies scrapbook paper, cut to size and sewn together in a single signature.


A great old photo of two couples on vacation, and some vintage tickets. I found a whole set of these photos of Maddie, Al, Irene and Gus on a roadtrip in 1933. I love them! They look like they had the best time.


The paperclips are decorated with little washi tape flags. So easy to do and so cute! I love using tiny glassine coin envelopes. Hole reinforcements make a great grabby spot for some baker's twine so you can pull the tags out.


Another photo of the vacationers, plus some collage sheet images and vintage stamps.


That's a little taste of it.


If you want to see all the pages or get a link to all the supplies I used, you can find them on my blog. Thanks for taking a look.  Smiley

So pretty and puts me in the mood for the beach. All the touches to each page must have taken a long time for editing. Have to say all the bits hanging out are a nice touch for interest. Smiley

This is wonderful. I wish I could flip through it! In addition to looking great, I bet it feels and even sounds neat with all of the different textures and ribbons and bobbles.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I wants it.  Cheesy

The couples pictures are wonderful and how you used the glassine envelopes and reinforcements is brilliant.
