Mini Album swap

This is the mini I made for my scrappy friend Shaton on Scraps of Color.  It’s a 6 x 9 album made from chipboard and corrugated fiberboard.  Shaton’s favorite color is blue. The Green Tea paper pack by DCWV caught my eyes and I went crazy.  I was hoping it wasn’t too busy.  It’s a Peek A Boo cover. Transparency was placed between the two pages to protect the picture if she chooses to put in the circle.  I used Prima flowers, Sizzix die cut leaves, butterfly from a RAK, Jolee bird cage and the QuicKutz scallop circle.

Left Page: Embellished a Dress form
Right Page: Martha Stewart edge punch & Quickutz scallop circle die cut, bling

Close up of the embellished dress form and altered stick pin I made

It’s 3 parts after I opened the left page.  The left page opens to an accordion album. The middle is a gateway page.  I used my Creative Memories square and heart punch and EK Success edge punch on the flaps.  They open for journaling or photos

Check out the accordion views. A paperclip tied to a ribbon is attached to assure it's closure.  Melody Ross sticker and Martha Stewart edge punch used.

When you open the gate way I used Spellbinder cuts for photos.  Journaling added at the bottom. The middle may look like a 4x4 paper tied with a bow, but it’s actually an …….

Explosion box! Well sort of.  Tags slide easily into the flaps.  They have journaling so she can add photos if she likes and actually store something in the middle.

Once you open that the left is a translucent envelope with lace and a MS edge punch and Melody Ross sticker.  In the middle is another gateway. A cuttlebug fanciful tag is used to connect them.  I made pocket pages and stored circle cuts and a mini envelope.  See close up view

And the last page, which is the corrugated fiberboard that binds it all can have photos placed in them.

Thanks for looking!
