I love making mini albums but have only made a few. When I was cleaning through some of my stuff a few weeks ago I found these pieces of 4x4 chipboard I had cut to make some albums but never got around to doing them so I set the chipboard aside so I could do them when I got stuff back in order. And...offf cccoouurrsseee I didn't make just one, I made 4 *okie is seriously thinking of seeking therapy for this making of multiples sickness she has*.
The patterned paper is from K & Co. by Marcella 6x6 paper pad. I used a large pearl brad for the center of the purple flower and then added some other little hot fix blings. The stamped sentiment is from Stampin Up Define Your Life stamp set.
Where the photos go I cut some white cardstock so the person who has the album can cut the pictures easily to put in place. I used some ribbon on the corners to dress it up a bit.
I decided to do a pocket with a tag on the page on the right. I used a Stampin Up stamp from the Vintage Vogue set on the pocket, added a white border using a Stampin Up border punch. I also added rivets on the corners, they are actually little metal hot fix studs.
The sentiments on the right page are from the same Define Your Life stamp set as the sentiment at the front of the album. I tried to decorate the page up a little so it wasn't too plain.
The Sentiment and butterfly on the right hand page are both Stampin Up products. The glitter brads as the flower centers are some I did sometime ago using my heat emboss gun, clear embossing powder and then quickly dipping in glitter.
By the time I got to the last page I was running out of ideas and tired of working on these suckers so I just added a border from a Stampin Up border punch, a touch of ribbon and a few brads.
I will be selling 3 of these albums if anyone is interested. The price is $25 and includes first class shipping. I accept Paypal if you are interested in purchasing one.

Love these, they are cute and so pretty, too.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, Okie. Be careful, girl, albums are an addiction. I've actually been reduced to buying a birthday card!ReplyDelete
Love the way you put this together and the notes for the picture size - great idea. Always fun to stop by and see what you've gotten up to. hugs, eileen
Okie this is just so cute! I love mini-albums but have not made but a few and gets me in the mood to make another.ReplyDelete
My friend makes them all the time and what she ends up doing is tying tulle on the spirals. It looks so great stuffed with color. She just buys the tulle that is found at JoAnns or Hobby Lobby in those little 6" tubes, cuts of about 6" and ties them until it's almost filled.
Really cute, and love the colors!ReplyDelete
This is stunning - all the different elements you have used to make this up. Love it. TFSReplyDelete
