Envelope Mini for A Friend

A lady from work retired today after 23 years at Triple Crown. So I made her a mini album last night. Here is the mini I made.  It only took a few hours and it's super fun. The tutorial is on Kathy Orta's You Tube page and I've made several of these albums in the past.They are very easy. The paper is Tres Chic from DCWV.

I added a pocket to the inside cover to put tags and the gift card my husband and I got her. 

 I used the a Martha Stewart around the page punch for the border of the tag in the library pocket pages. 

Thanks for looking. Don't forget to subscribe to enter to win my mini.

Bag-a-lope mini album

This weekend Friends and I went to a fundrasing crop for Kates Kart, Inc. While there  I managed to make 4 minis but only 1 has the embellishments . Here is that album. I only had my phone with me so these are not good pictures. I donated the album so I do not have any other way to take more pictures of it. Guess I learned my lesson!

This tutorial was from Paper Phenomenon on Ustream.

Lemon Flower gate fold paper bag mini album

I'm so excited to share this album with you. I was searching for a new album to make and couldn't find one that floated my boat so I created my own little album. I used 6 recollections paper bags and black card stock. The pp I used was Lemon flower from DCWV. 

There are 3 bags on each side to create the Gate fold album. I released the gussets on the bag as I learned from Kathy Orta and added flaps to the bags. I used the opening of the bag to put a tag in. I don't know if there are any albums out there exactly like this one.

So here is the cover. 
I used recollections bling to jazz it up a little the paper already has glitter on it so I didn't want to add to much. I am now thinking of adding some bigger flowers . Not sure yet.... 

This is the album with both left and right covers opened. 

This is a close up of the Right side page assembly

The tag pulled out.

. The following picutres are all the right side first bag (page) with attached flaps in various positions (open, closed)
This is with the right side page opened.

The flap is open down on this side of the page. The right side of the page's flap will open up as you will see in the next picture. 

Here you can see the paper bag bottom is glued to create a pocket. 

the Yellow side is the back of the first bag. It also flips down for more pictures/journaling. The left side is the first page of the 2nd bag. 

As you can see you get a lot of places for photos and journaling.

Envelope Mini Album

This was made using a pack of  Recollections brand card/envelope set. 5 by 6.5 size. I got the tutorial from Kathy Orta off her YouTube page.  I used an old Stamping Up! paper pack I had left over from when I sold it. Gosh that pack must have been 8 years old.  Good thing I am not a paper hoarder! (Anyone who knows me knows I am.:) I got the journaling tags by googleing printable journaling tags.
