Mini Album 2

Here's my second mini - the first picture is the front cover and is unfinished. I need to use my printer for the title but it won't work ...

The pages are pockets made from envelopes (DL size) and each one holds a tag for photos and/or journaling.

The frame above has a bit of scrap paper in it ready to act as a template for the photo I will add.

The above page is a slider pocket and when the green tab at the top is pulled this is what happens ...

... both sections emerge at the same time!

I have been doing less mixed media stuff lately and rediscovered 'scrapping' - in particular mini albums. I really need to use up some of the piles of patterned papers I have stashed! The internet is full of inspired scrappers and I have been looking at these people in particular, and

So I have been making mini albums and learning as I go from the many tutorials these ladies have put out on Utube. The pages are unbound at present and there are no photographs or journaling added - if I get that far I will re-post them finished!

I have made 3 albums so far ...

The first one is about 5" x 7"

Flowers made from Paperartsy dies, Nestibilities and punches. 

Spaces for journaling and photos shown above.

 This little wallet page opens out as shown below with a tag and a little booklet.

and this is the back of the wallet with more space for a photo or journaling.

An acrylic page front and back.

More photo mats above and below is a pocket page made out of envelopes ...

Another pocket page above made from an envelope and the tags from each one below.

I still have to do inside the back cover!

Row Houses

I have had a lovely day making these for a swap - they're very addictive and give good results relatively quickly.
