21st Album for Chelsey

I'm on a roll with these 21st guest albums! I made one for my niece last year for her 21st, not with the intention of making more for private orders. Lo and behold, this is the third order in the last 6 weeks!  Nevertheless, I've enjoyed making them, but I've now used up all my Tim Holtz Ideology keys! This order is from Western Australia and the specifications were black/white and red 1920's vintage. So I'm thinking tassells, feathers, pearls, Great Gatsby, silver and gems. After a couple of consultation with paper design selections, I decided on the Kaisercraft Timeless Vintage Black and White for the inside pages and After Five for the cover. The accents are from the Porcelain Rose collection (I love the flowers and birds in this collection). I had a bit of problem with two different sized papers 6x6 and 6.5x6.5 which I solved with matting with the 6.5x6.5 on the front. The inside pages are all 6.5x6.5. There is room inside the covers for photos to be added (I added extra papers for mats and embellishments to adhere over the photos). Hope Chelsey likes it, her party is at the end of this month! I've ordered more vintage keys and they've just arrived... so I'm ready for the next order!

I'm submitting this project into Simon Says Stamp and Show A Little Stamping and Die Cut Diva's July Summer Flowers challenge. Just a reminder that I have just started a FB fanpage, please click link on sidebar and 'Like'. I'll be sharing my works in progress, finished projects, links to giveaways and tutorials there. Thanks for dropping by!
