Here's what I made for her.
I used 6x9 page protectors from Making Memories. The cover is a sandwich of chipboard, felt and fabric, sewn around the outer edge. I sewed a paper pocket into the front and back covers before assembling the layers. Then bound it with standard office binding rings and decorated them with ribbons.
I used Basic Grey paper Blush Collection and chipboard stickers from the Bittersweet collection. The chipboard stickers had adhesive on the back already, but it just wasn't sticky enough so I had to glue many of them anyway. I also used other miscellaneous bits and pieces from my stash.
I just used a simple design of solid on left page and pattern on right page with a little embellishment on both pages. I think 4x6 photos, horiz or vertical should fit nicely on these pages.
Here's a few pages
