Last month Lynne teased us with photographs of her stunning Wedded Together Album and Roll Top Box. She also gave us the list of items needed to create the project, how beautiful are the Stamperia You and Me papers, just perfect for a Wedding Album.
So over to Lynne for the full tutorial...
9 inches x 9 inches album
9 inches x 3 inches spine
4 pocket pages cut 8 @ 8 3/4 inches x 8 1/4 inches score 1/2 inch (see previous Albums here on the blog for how to assemble pocket pages)
Extended spine - cut 1 @ 8 1/4 inches x 3 1/2 inches, cut 1 @ 8 1/4 inches x 2 1/2 inches, score 1/2, 1" on each long side . Spine to be 3/4 inch in from hinges.
To cover inside spine and part front/back covers 1 @ 8 1/4 inches x 8 inches. To cover inside/outside front & back covers 4 @ 8 3/4 inches x 8 3/4 inches, to cover outside spine 1 @ 8 3/4 inches x 2 3/4 inches. I used a hole punch for spine and 3mm ribbon for dangles & 6mm ribbon for loop (spells marriage)
To align the spine I used spine alignment tools (pic) to get correct 3/4inch in from edges of greyboard. (I'm greedy as I have 2 sets, it makes it easier to ensure same distance each side)

Memory box (10x10x4)
Light grey paint, top of box to match front cover of album.
Apologies to anyone who wants to make this set, I did write down how much of the gorgeous You and Me Stamperia papers I used, but then I put it in a safe place until I needed it and it is in such a safe place I can't find it!
Next month I'll be using the same You and Me papers from Stamperia to create a Photo Wallet Album which will fit neatly into the Roll Top Box.
Well wasn't that worth the wait. Next month we'll be seeing more of that gorgeous paper collection from Stamperia along with lots more inspiration from Lynne.
