Mini Album ~ Memories

Hello hello hello….

Wow!! I have not been on my blog for ages….

I have been so busy with live and living that I have had no time to scrapbook…To get back into being Creative,I decided to make mini albums and interactive books to use my papers and stuff. I am enjoying this…

This is a very chunky little book…..

I have watched many many youtube videos and tutorials on how to construct a book like this and in the beginning it was quit the challenge….. I used what I had on hand. I was going to use what was in my stash and was not going to buy anything new…. I used chipboard and cardboard…   The Cover

Making the hinges (I believe it’s called Hidden hinges)

I used a lot of double sided tape…

Ready to put the pages in…

Happy with it so far…

Ready to decorate my pages…

Page 1 :

On the left is a pocket with a photo booklet and some tags. I used Prima and Petaloo flowers.The page on the right folds open and have place for photos and tags. I used a magnet to keep it closed.

Booklet on first page. I used Tim Holtz ‘Birdcage’ diecut and it holds the tags and photos in place.

Page 2 ~ on the left is a ‘bellieband’ with a magnet behind it to keep the photo mat from falling out….again some flowers from Prima and Petaloo.

Page 2 ~ on the right,I made a photo folder that opens up for placing photos.I used a magnet on the ‘flap’ to keep it closed.

Page 2 ~ all open….

Page 3 ~ On the left is a corner pocket with a little photo booklet…

Page 3 ~ On the right I made a frame that can flip open to reveal another frame….the photo can be slipped in on top..

Page 3 ~ all open…

Page 4 flips open….

page 4 on the right flips open…

page 4…

Detail an page 4 (L) ~ the birdcage is only stuck down on on side to slip the tags and photos in on the side….

Page 5 ~  (L) – 3 stag pocket with tags and places to put photos..

Page 5 (R) with a pull out photo mat…

Page 6 ~ Two ‘waterfall’ albums that together it will hold 20 photos. It is kept closed with two ‘bands’ made with my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies,each have a magnet to keep everything in place…

Page 7 ~ (L) – with a pocket to hold tags and photos….

Page 7 ~ (R) – with a little photo booklet that flips open…

Page 7 ~ all open…

Cuttlebug and Spellbinders diecuts to make all the closures for the album….

All the pages are double and have a pocket that opens to make place for removable photo mats….

The end….

I really had a lot of fun making this book…It’s not so mini in the end!!! You could fit a hundred or more photos into this little chunky book!!!

Thank You for looking…

Till next time

XOXO
