I think the reason it is called the convertible album is because you can choose to make it into the purse shape or leave off the closure and handle and just make the wonderful album. The project also uses a chipboard speciality album with the pieces inserted throughout with a special hinge that Kathy's shows us how to make.
Enough talk..... here is my decorating take on the Convertible Mini......
I decorated some like Kathy and some like me.
|Close up of the front|
|Here is the back|
|Inside first cover and first page|
Here is where you can see the stacked pockets I added to the design of the mini. It just gives more space for tags and that means we can add more pictures.
On this page I cut out the round slides "thingy" and attached it to the pocket so that it made another pocket.
|I made a fancy tag for this page that opens up and has pockets.|
|More stacked pockets here. You can also see the added page |
with Kathy's special new hinge
|I love adding elements to pockets that make more pockets.|
This is a really big album because there are 6 pages on both sides of the handle clasp. This is the start of the second section.
|More stacked pockets and lots of tags.|
|Finally the last page!|
