Here is the Asian Garden Gate - Serenity Version so far. Still has some pages to go and some details to complete but this gives you an idea of what it will look like. I will post more photo's when it is finished.
The album slips down inside the Gate frame.
The Mini album cover opens like a Shoji screen.
The Kimono has small tags in the sleeves (which fold in when the book is closed) and inside the neckline. Each page has 4 matte size tags.
I will also post photo's of the Flower Garden Version when I have it ready. The pattern (which should be ready and available to everyone by Saturday) will have both versions.

My Angel Policy
I allow the sale of up to 10 completed albums of a design when you are the direct seller in a personal situation such as a craft fair or to friends and acquaintances. I ask that you do not sell to a third party for sale (i.e. a shop, boutique, or similar) or via the internet (on sites such as Etsy and Ebay) as it would put you in direct competition with me.

Be My Guest Pattern corrections
Bottom of Pg 9: Mattes should be cut 4" x 6 3/4" instead of the 4 1/4" x 6 3/4" on the pattern.
Top of Page 10: Mattes should be attached 1/2" to 3/4" down from top edge instead of the 1 1/4" noted on the pattern. (This allows for page length differences due to edge punch differences). Also, The mattes should be attached 3 3/4" from binding fold edge (the 2" on the pattern was a typo).
Shabby Pockets Pattern Corrections
Top of Pg 3: 8 1/2" x 11" Page Base should be scored and folded at 4 1/8" instead of 4 1/4"
