Thanks all for the kind words
Super Job! and an extra thumbs up for the Gambia elephants , my favourites.
How do you display your pages? - never mind saw you putting them in Polypropylene pockets, assume these have hole punch on side for folder?
Thanks. Yes the elephants are probably my favourite too which is why I started with them. There are so many nice stamps from GVI it's hard to pick a favourite sometimes.
Yep PP pockets that are glass clear and yep they have holes punched. Then they are going in one of the standard padded Hagner type stock books. I'm debating whether to go double sided.
Very professional looking pages, I'm impressed.
I am currently looking into making my own at the moment and still deciding what software to use to design the layout. I'll have a look at AlbumEasy.
One quick question - what paper do you use?
Thanks Peter. I'm liking AlbumEasy, it's a little like coding a web page in a way. I was also looking at Scribus, but for me AlbumEasy was a quicker start and it does what I want.
The paper I am using is some Epson Archival Paper :http://www.amazon.co.uk/Epson-Archival-Matte-Paper-Sheets/dp/B000092QYW
According to the Epson rep it is acid and lignin free... Other brands are available of course, but this was a good price for me.
I liked you hijacking my thread.. I got some new opinions that way:)
I tried AlbumEasy but I couldn't wrap my mind around the need to code and the absence of a GUI.
I think that your pages look very professional and I would have added a little bit more color but that is an entirely personal choice.
Good luck with your pages!
I thought you wouldn't mind, but I also thought I wouldn't run the risk
I will still visit your thread to pick up ideas
AlbumEasy like I said is ok, it just takes a bit of time. I am with you on colour, I was thinking of making the border a dark blue or something, but I don't think you can do it with AE...so that's another reason why you are personally better off doing it your way. I don't mind the monotone but I may experiment a bit before I go too far to change.
Very nice and some good quality stamps too, no Bulgarian wallpaper flowers.
Thanks. Yes this is a good clean set. As said above one of my faves
I like! I have been making my own in LaTeX (Wikipedia it). Will be posting them up when they are done!
Had a quick look and it seems interesting, I will dig deeper later. I Would definitely like to see what you come up with
