I heart my Mini Album :o)


I had SO much fun with the kit this month. I love it! No surprise really that it sold out in about three days!

This is the mini that I have made:

And now for the inside... lots of details and photos coming up :)

Pages One & Two

For the inside cover, I tried to make a sky effect by first painting the chipboard with white acrylic paint, and then splodging over the Distress Ink. I then just added a photo mat, some flowers and Liquid Pearls (you all know how much I love them).

The right hand page is a simple page, with a punched border holding in a selection of photo mats and tags.

Pages Three and Four

On the left hand side, I used my Nesties to make a circular photo mat, which I them simply embellished with a hand made flower, and a tag tucked behind the photo mat.

The right hand side is another pocket page.

Pages Five, Six and Seven

I loved the paper on the left hand page so much that I didn't want to cover it much, so I simply painted the chipboard flourish from the kit with white acrylic paint, added some Distress Stickles, and made a flower with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, and the flourish holds the tags in place.

I also made an acetate page, where I just used my Crop a Dile Big Bite to set some flowers with eyelets, and then inked the edges with Black Stazon.

On the right hand page, I added some of the Magic Mesh from the May Kit, then used one of the ATC sized designs from this month's kit as a photo mat, which also hides more tags and tickets behind. I decorated this flourish with white acrylic paint and Petal Pink Liquid Pearls.

Pages Eight and Nine

Two simple pages - swivel out photo mats on the left hand side, and simply flowers and Liquid Pearls to make a framed page on the right hand side.

Pages Ten and Eleven

On the left hand side, I simply made a top note with design paper, tied around some of the lace from the kit and added a trinket pin (thanks Club Member Sandie for the idea on using the trinket pin!). I made the top note into a pocket to hold another photo mat, and added one of the Snippets at the top for a title.

On the right hand side, I used up my scraps to decorate one of the envelopes from the kit, which holds tags both inside and behind.

Back Cover

Finally, I simply added a locket that I die cut from artists mount board on the back.

I hope you guys like it and that I haven't bored you all with such a long post!!
