Close up of my "True Love", I cut it out in paper that was very close in color with my cover because I wanted it seen but wanted it to look subdued. I added glossy accents on top.
This page is the inside of the cover and first page. As you can see in the "v", there is a tag. I added some crinkle ribbon that I dyed. I plan to go back and add eyelets to my tags as I didn't have any, so looks like a crafty run is in order. lol
Here you can see my first page (and all pages) flip out giving me to more larger mats for pictures, journaling or mementos.
Here is the back side of page one, flipped out and the start of the second page, which will flip out just like the first one. Each "v" pocket has a tag in them. The smaller pockets are 4 1/2" wide x 4 3/4" tall and the larger pocket holds a tag that is 4 1/2" wide x 5 1/2" tall. So plenty of room for pictures and journaling spots.
Here the flip out is closed and this is the back of page 1 and the front of page 2. The rest of the mini looks like this but with just different patterns of paper. Dear husband is taking me to a Bed and Breakfast for our anniversary so I plan on getting many pictures to add to this mini as well as pictures from the last 20 years. I think it will be a great keepsake! So how do you like my little mini??? Want to know how to make one like this??? Well wonder no more, click here to go to Ginger's tutorial on how to make these pages. Then you can bind your album anyway you chose. I wanted to bind mine with the "stack the deck" by Laura from Following the Paper Trail but I didn't have 6 pages, only 5 and you need an even number to do it that way. I was going to pick up more kraft paper but wouldn't you know the last pack was open and spilling out every where at Hobby Lobby. So I just used my Cinch to bind my mini.
Well I think that is about it! I hope you stuck it out with me and will go over to BBTB2 to see what awesome inspiration my design team sisters have for you as well.
