Butterflies a Flutter - Doll House Mini

I have been working on the mini-album that came with the Paper Phenomenon Doll House tutorial off and on since the beginning of summer.  I really love the graphic 45 Botanical Tea collection of papers and they are perfect for this project.

The album cover has a number of cut out elements from the paper collection.  I added Glossy Accents to the butterflies and hummingbird.  The closure came with the Paper Phenomenon kit and is spectacular!  I covered it with Gesso and a little Stickles for sparkle.  All of the paper and chipboard for this project came from the kit.

The pages are made with a special pocket embedded in the design of the top and bottom of the base page.  All other elements are added to the base page as pockets or flaps.  We all used the very lovely Martha Stewart edge and corner punch to add lacy beauty.

The basic page design includes a decorated flap on top of the base page.  The flap has a pocket on the top and the inside.  All 6 pages follow this same format.

Open the top flap

Flip the whole page over to reveal more flaps and pockets.
Open "Bird" flap

Back side of flap is perfect for adding 4x6 photos.
And here is a picture of the top loading and pocket loading tags where you can put more pictures and journaling.

All the remaining pages follow the same format and I decorated similar to Kathy Orta so I am only including pictures of the front and back of the next 5 pages.

There is lots of space for tags in this album!

Some parts of these pages I left undecorated just because I like the color of the paper!

This is such a lovely set of Graphic 45 papers!  I can't wait to finish my next project which is from the "My Design Mini" tutorial.

Happy Scrapping!
