6 by 11 mini album? Is it still a mini? Check out this new Mini!

I saw this a few weeks ago and had to make one. I love the huge spaces for pictures. The large pocket page measures 6 X 11! The binding is all one sheet of Cardstock that is accordion folded and cut in certain places and the pockets are attached to each mountain fold. Very simple to make actually!
Paper is from Die Cuts with a View


Pocket page with tag pulled out. 

Hope you enjoy looking. I'm gonna have fun putting embelishments and pictures in this one for sure.

The elephant is also a Close to my Heart stamp that I've cut out and used colored pencils and gamasol to color.

My Birthday and Anniversary Book

This has not been bound or embelished yet.  I use the bind it all to bind it and each month has a pocket so you can put cards in in.  The front cover has an envelope to hold stamps there is also printed address sheets for the back of the book.

Each page is made by 1 12x12 sheet of cardstock. Super easy to make. Score at 6 inches then turn and score at 4 inches.  Each side is one month. Just fold so the crease is on the side with out the binding.

Super Easy Birthday/Anniversary book

I haven't added embelishments yet but all I did was make tags, ink them, apply paper and dates.

Bless You Tissue Box

This is a tissue box cover designed by Betty's Bee Ustream. I loved the box and I love Sponge Bob so I had to make one for my desk at work. Every side has a pull down flap with another flap that has a pocket inside. I don't have every flap and pocket covered with pictures so I have plenty of room to add more. I just love this tissue box cover and plan to make one for each of my co-workers for Christmas. I better get busy! I have to make 10 more! 

Book list mini album

I made this for a friend who loves to read. I just need to print out the book lists and attach to the tags inside the pockets. She will have room to add books that she has read as well as jot down books she wishes to read also. Plus she can attach several photos  any place she wishes.
I adapted this book from PaperPhenomen ustream class.  Click on the link on the right to join the pita babes and follow her on ustream. You won't be sorry!

The paper line is Lucky by Close to My Heart, as well as all the embelishments.
