Mini Pocket Album

Hi there,
I finally finished my first mini pocket album. I follow Ginger Ropp's blog and she does some beautiful mini album tutorials - like those beautiful waterfall folio albums I've been posting!

This is the front cover using the Graphic 45 paper line Twas the Night Before Christmas. Love, love, love this paper! I took about 23 crappy pictures but I promise I won't bore you with all of them since I am not a photographer!

This is the one of the pocket pages using the tags, chipboard and cut aparts that come with the set.

The top flap opens and it too can be use as a photo page. Some of these papers are just too busy but gorgeous to add any more embellishments. Less is more ...


This is a better picture showing an actual pocket! I used black cardstock for the construction of the album and coordinating colored cardstock for photo mounts.

This is another tag from the collection. I just added some red stickles for some sparkle!

Another page using coordinating chipboard accents, tags and cut aparts.

 In addition to pocket pages, there is also a tag page. Slide out the tags from their pockets and use as more photo mounts.

This is the last page. Ginger shows how to make these closures.

And this is the page when it is opened. 3 more places to add pictures! I didn't show all the pages but the album has a total of 6 pocket pages. Not only is the tutorial about how to make the pocket pages but also how to make the binding that holds all 6 pages.

I really enjoyed making this album. Now I just have to figure out who the lucky recipient will be to receive this pocket album!

I want to make another, but I need to buckle down and make my Christmas cards and get them mailed!

That is all from me for today. Enjoy your Sunday and the rest of your week!
