G45 Mini/Maxi Hand Made Album

Hello my dears,  This is something a little different for me that I wanted to share with you. A few months ago I discovered Mini Albums via the lovely Rina Meyers when we were both on the same design team and I've been hooked ever since!!!  Thank you Rina. 

 I won't go into the fine details of every page I created otherwise we'll be here forever, but I would like to give you some info of some of the items used.

The album is 8" x 8" and has 16 pages in total where you could add pictures and journaling.  I've incorporated lots of pretty pockets, punches, dies and photo mounts ready to use.

This is the front cover decorated with pretty flowers from WOC/Prima and butterflies cut from the paper pack, I've used lots of glamour dust and snowtex on them

The front/spine and back of the book I made from a 12 x 12 pizza box and when constructed I covered in Bazzill white card stock, all the pages inside are basic 350gm white card stock from Paper Mill direct and the Beautiful/stunning/gorgeous Designer Papers used are Botanical  Tea from G45.  All the flaps that open are closed using magnets hidden beneath the paper.

Here is a selection of the Blue/ Grey and Brown pages

These are some of the Pink/Floral Pages

these are some extra pages that I couldn't find room for in the pictures above.

A view from above, I took this before I decorated the front cover.

 Here is the album open to show you the spine and back cover.

I do hope you've enjoyed looking at my album, I'm about to start another one as this one has sold to a very lovely lady who fell in love with it when I took it to a craft class.

Have a fabulous Bank Holiday weekend if you are here in the UK and if you're in another part of the world have a great weekend.
