Mini Album-Picture Heavy!

Hello friends, it's a busy time of year, so I will make this as brief as possible. I made this non traditional mini album for my friend whose daughter got married Nov. of 2022. They had a non traditional wedding, thus why I went with a non traditional album. So lots of flip outs, flip ups, waterfalls, pockets, etc...All the pages flip up or out and this mini album holds around 50 photos. I used a digital collection from Echo Park called Hello Autumn. The physical paper comes with a sticker sheet, so does the digital collection, only they aren't stickers of course. So I pulled images over and put a white offset around some of them and cut them out on my Cricut. This time I used a premade photo album and just added extra pages to it. 

The Cover

                                       Inside of the cover and first page that pulls for a triple panel on each side.  I put two horizontal waterfalls that holds 3 x 4 photos. So 14 photos for the inside cover. 

This page pulls out in a triple as you see in the photo below this one. It was just a double pull out and I added an additional panel. I put a pocket in the center panel with a little booklet that will hold 3 3x4 photos. So 9 photos for this part. 

      This flip up I added, the book didn't have one, so I added it. I wanted extra room for photos.

   This is a little half page I added to magnetic down the waterfall on the back inside cover. 

And that is my mini album, I hope you enjoyed it as it was a labor of love! My friend loved it and I was a happy camper that she did. I had lots of fun making it. 

As always, thank you for taking time from your busy schedule, especially this busy time of year, to visit me and seeing what I'm up to. I sure appreciate it and enjoy your comments!

I'm in awe! Brenda, this is so wonderful and I know the couple have to love it too - and will bring them good memories for years to come. I have no idea how you did all this because my mind is just too simple for things like that but I love, love, LOVE IT! WOW!

I don't know how I missed this post, but I'm glad I found it now! What a wonderful little book you've made! I used to make albums and enjoyed making them so much! I just love all the folio flaps and beautiful papers you chose along with so many wonderful elements! My goodness, this must have taken quite some time to create, but take a bow! It's absolutely fabulous!
