OK--on to the mini album that I made...
I made this mini with 6 bank envelopes and used my Bind-It-All to bind it together. Ann said she wanted to use this album for pictures of her daughter and wanted the colors to be earth tones. I found the perfect paper line (and on sale, too!) to use for this project. I picked up a paper stack from K&Co called Edamame. I bought the Designer Mat Stack which had 18 double sided papers that were 6.75"x4.75." I used 17 of the 18 sheets, plus one sheet of paper from the 12x12 pad. (I loved the paper so much that I had to go out and get some for myself!) I also bought a package of journaling spots, handmade flowers stickers, a set of butterfly stickers, and a package of the 12" border strips.
This album has LOTS of tags, with tons of room for journaling and/or photos. I inked all the edges of the paper and the envelopes with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I created 2 mini albums within this mini album. Each one allows room for 7 pictures. One is a waterfall album which will hold photos about 2.5" square and the other is a fold out accordion type album that will hold wallet sized photos. I also made a stick pin for the front and a dangling charm that is attached to the binding with a lobster claw clasp. The ribbon came from my stash. I purchased the crochet lace trim and the other trim on the front came in a box from my mother-in-law. I have used that trim on several projects. I did use my Vintage Photo Distress Ink to darken the trim since it was very white and the white just didn't go with the album.
I had a lot of fun making this mini album and I hope Ann likes it!
