Mini Album Fun

Happy May my crafty friends. Today I am going to show you a little mini album tha I put together. This is based on a design by Kathy Orta and measures approximately eight by ten when opened. I used Kraft card stock and Tim Holtz Wallflower Paper Collection. I freaking love this collection of papers! Anyway, enjoy the pictures. I am entering this into the following challenges, if any seem your fancy, click on the links to hop on over and join in the crafty fun...
A Vintage Journey: Fond Memories
This little mini album works perfectly for a Vintage Journey: Fond Memories. It is intended as an add on for the Treasure Trunk I am making my sister, you can read more about that in my last blog post. What fonder memories can one have than having their first child? This will look amazing in a few months, once it is filled with pictures of my new niece.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Pick 5
The mini also works for the tricky, yet fun, pick 5 things to make your project challenge, by the SSS Monday Challenge Blog. I used 1) Kraft card stock 2) Scor Tape 3) Vintage Photo Distress Ink 4) Tim Holtz Metal Embellishments 5) Tim Holtz Wallflower Paper Stash and that's all folks.

And one of the back, I left this simple, but I love how the Tim Holtz Die Cut Hinges look!
Here is the inside with all the goodies in it...

And with everything taken out...

Here is a pic of all the different little photo and journaling mats and pull outs... I doubled up on the room by making cards rather than tags (I expect LOTS of baby pictures).

And one final picture with everything back in its place.
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the little mini I put together. Stay Crafty my friends.

  5. This project is fabulous! I am a sucker for mini albums as it is and you've created quite a stunning piece. I was so amazed at how much it held with every picture that you shared! It just kept getting more and more incredible! I adore all the bits and pieces you were able to arrange so artistically. The cards themselves are a work of art just by themselves, but this album as a whole is remarkable! I felt truly inspired and I'm so glad that you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! I think I'm going to go back and drool over your pictures some more now... :)
