Hi All! I got in on a swap at http://minialbumscraps.ning.com/ for an All Occasions Mini Album made from Kathy King’s Tutorial. It’s an excellent tutorial and the book was a ton of fun to make. You can purchase a copy of the tutorial at http://paperphenomenon.com/.
On the front cover I used some rick rack in a couple of colors to make a nice border and used a Tim Holtz buckle and ribbon closure with eyelets set 1/2″ apart to allow the album and closure to expand just like a belt as pictures are added.
I used the Oh Darling Collection from Crate Paper to make the mini. Inside the front cover, I used some of the vellum ephemera to make a photo spot. The vellum frame is open at the top to allow a picture to slide in.
The undercut pages are a really fun part of this album. It adds some extra interest and dimension. I cut some really cute coin envelopes from the 12 x 12 coordinating vellum sheets. I also added a couple of Maggie Holmes bobby pin style clips to the undercut pages.
Inside the back cover, I created a waterfall to add even more space for photos. This pattern really allows a lot of space for photos as it is, but with the addition of the waterfall, you can add loads. I used some ribbon, a chipboard button and a couple of magnets to create the closure.
I gotten so I love to add both a bottle cap charm and a hand made resin macaron charm to my mini albums and junk journals. It just adds a little extra goodie, which can make the difference between a good album and a great one.
Here’s a video to see the mini album in more detail:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like the mini album and find some inspiration to make some of your own.
