Tropical Travelogue Manila Folder Album

Ok, it seems I can't get enough of the Tropical Travelogue collection by Graphic 45. This is my third project using this absolutely gorgeous paper. I used two manila folders and black cardstock for the basic pages. My covers are chipboard and the binding is done with canvas from Canvas Corp. I will have a tutorial on this uploaded hopefully Tuesday afternoon. I used a few pieces from the 8 x 8 paper pad that were left over from my previous projects, but for the most part, I used the 12 x 12 paper pad.

 I used the large cut out stamps from the collection to decorate the back of the front cover.
 Here is the first manila folder. I did have to paint it black in the areas that were showing.
 I used some Tim Holtz clips in the album with twine tied through the hole at the top.
 The folder opens up.
 I cut out some of the fish and pop them up on foam tape. 
 I created two bands to hold these tags.
 A small pocket holds this very small booklet.
 This page holds six wallet size tags with mattes.
 My second manila folder.
 The folder opens up.
 I placed several cut out tags from the collection and held them on with another clip.
 I used several cut out leaves to decorate with through out the album.
