Basic Grey Altered Album with Maja Design Papers

Hi Everyone

Today, I wanted to share a little mini album I did using the Basic Grey Chipboard Album and Maja Design papers along with Prima Chipboard and flowers and inking.

I altered some of the pages creating pockets and flaps.  I have double inked with a complimentary color then with Frayed burlap.  I used several punches and embellishments to finish the look.

I used faux suede paper for the binding with some Prima chipboard and flowers. I added lace trim along with some bling ribbon.

On the inside cover I created to pockets to hold tags and photo mats.

I created flaps with magnets and used the chipboard pieces as pockets to hold tags

I have inked the edges with a ink color that complimented the paper then I inked the edges with Frayed Burlap.

I used some of the tags and flowers as embellishment's

  On the final pages, I added two pocket flaps on the left side and on the back inside cover I created two pockets and a pull down flap.

I am not really a Kraft color fan.  Reminds me of my days when I was a kid and I had to pack my lunch in those lunch sacks. LOL  

I am happy with the way it turned out.  Now on to another project.  :D

Thanks for stopping by!

Pocket Page Mini Album


Hello Everyone

Today I wanted to show you a quick little mini album that I created from a tutorial I purchased from Paper Hoarder Disorder called the Flip It Album. It is very easy to create, I created this one is a half a day.  These would be great gifts.


I created one using Prima Engravers line with some 12x12 paper and the 6x6 paper pad.

I changed my a little from the template.  I added a hairband closure and saw from So much Scrap and added come lace ribbon, prima flowers and some faux suede paper to the spine.

2014-05-04 11.35.47On the spine I used a Tim Holtz swivel clasp and some charms.  I added an ivory flower on top to cover the top of the swivel clasp.

I kept the pages really simple because I am giving this as a gift and wanted to keep the embellishments at a minimum.  The album is 7x7 with the inside pages at 6x6.

Each of the pages has a flip pocket and a center packet that can hold several pictures. Below are the remaining pages from the album
