Fold Apart Mini Album

Shock! Horror! I made a mini album, lol! Yes, it's been a while since I've done one of these. And I have Natalie May to thank for the inspiration (she was kind enough to share this mini-album design with me the last time I visited). Everything used to create this album came from the Noel Mignon "Charm School" kit. I've used Pebbles Inc papers, Elle's Studio tags, WRMK embellishments and tags, Hambly rub-ons, and a couple of stick pins (it's been way too long since I've played with these kits). 

Here's the front view of the mini-album. It's 4" x 6". Just wait till you see this unfolded!
(I'll definitely be creating more of these albums. I think they might make a good Christmas gift).

When you remove the paper wrap that holds it all together, you can read the full title - Things That I Love About You. Due to the folding design of this album, the embellishments must be kept flat, and not bulky. Depth and dimension has been added through layers, doodling, and paper embellishments. 

Here's what you see when you open the first page. Yes, large photos - not tiny, teenie, weenie, mini photos. I really enjoyed working with larger photos for a change, and still having room left over to add journalling.

And here is the view when you fold the front cover over. I haven't yet added any journalling to this album for two reasons. 1. I have a splitting head-ache. 2. What I want to say to my daughters is personal and I don't want to share it, in this case. Usually, it doesn't worry me, but this is going to be a little different, and a little more personal. So you will just have to imagine what it looks like with journalling. 

This is what you get when the album is fully opened. 
More photos, and heaps of room for journalling. In total, there are 5 large photos, and four smaller photos in the kraft envelope. 

Here's a close-up of one of the journalling pages. 

I've added several smaller photos to the kraft envelope. 

And more journalling options - or if you are over journalling, you could add words, pictures, 
embellishments, or symbols. 
Thank-you for dropping by today. I hope you have enjoyed this album. I had a lot of fun making it, and sharing it with you. If you are inspired to create your own album, I'd love to see it - just add a link below, linking me to your blog.
