Mini Album

I have so many 6" x  6" books of patterned paper it's ridiculous.  I thought it was about time I actually cracked a pack open and put it to good use... this little album was the result.  I added some beautiful flowers and a butterfly as well as a sentiment tag using a stamp and punch from Stamping Up.  The lace and organza ribbon is from my stash - another area I really need to crack open more often!

So pretty, Becky. Your papers and the design is lovely. I too need to use more of my stash and most of us would agree with that, but seems I still like to shop, must be a sickness,lol. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creation.

Is there a tutorial available for this album? Looking at it, I think I have it figured out, but I'd like to know for sure. I would also love to see how you've decorated the inside. I love your work Beccy, I'm certainly glad I happened upon your site!

Hi Cheryl,
I'm sorry, there's no tutorial for this little album. The pages are actually little pockets that I made by folding long pieces of cardstock and sealing all but the top edge. I bound ten pocket pages together to form the book, then made tags to slide inside each page.
I can't remember exactly how the pages were decorated now - the book sold last year - but I think I used the same collection of patterned papers and similar embellishments to what you see on the front.
Good luck with your album, I'd love to see the finished product!
Cheers,
Beccy
