For this post, I created an 8x8 Mini Album using the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments and Blue Fern Studio paper along with black cardstock. I wanted to create something special for my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day.
For the cover, I used the signature sheet and stitched around the edges. I don’t know how to sew so this was my first time trying. I added glossy accents to the hearts and butterflies. I added flowers and flat back pearls. On the binding, I added black lace and pearl lace.
I created some charms for the spine. A bird cage, birds nest and some other charms . I added a felt butterfly to the top.
On the inside cover, I used a die cut and a little book with a velcro closure. There is a chipboard piece as the swing tab that opens up to two photo mats
On the first page is a pocket with some tags and a chipboard piece with some roses and some lace. The flap opens to two photo mats
The second page has a flap that opens to a photo mat and then lifts up to another photo map. I have embellished it with a pocket and tag, a chipboard piece and some ribbon. I used a Tim Holtz on the edge die.
The third page I used a Spellbinders on the edge die and a chipboard swing tab along with some chipboard embellishments and a charm
Inside the fourth page. I used glossy accents on the egg and made a little tag. There is a photo mat on the side.
The fifth page I used the Spellbinders on the edge die to create the flap. I used the chipboard piece from G45 and a brad to create the closure. It opens up to photo mats
On the sixth page, I used a Spellbinders die to create the flap and mounted a chipboard piece on top. There is a 4x6 photo mat that is secured by a buckle and a chipboard button and a pewter brad
Page 7, I used a postage stamp as a pull tab that opens to two photo mats. I mounted chipboard piece along with a resin flower.
Page 8, I created a flap and underneath is a pocket that holds a photo mat and some tags. I added Prima flowers, a metal stem and a postage stamp to the cover.
Page 9 has the flaps that open to the center. There are chipboard pieces acting as closures.
The back cover I created a pocket for a photo mat and a tag. There are tags tucked behind the chipboard embellishment a long with a resin rose and some lace.
And that is the whole mini album. Thanks for stopping by!
