I took a class a couple of weeks ago at my local scrapbook store on how to make a fabulous mini album. We used Enchanted Garden paper from Kaiser Kraft - so beautiful!
I am keeping the one I made in the class so I made another one to give to a work friend who lost her mother last year. We are going to memorialize her mom using this book and her family photos. Her mom loved fairies and collected every kind you can image, so this paper collection is perfect!
Our teacher, Faith, taught us the binding technique and all kinds of cool page treatments. All of the pages have a top or side insert where more pictures and journaling can be done.
|This is the inside of the front cover and the first page.
We are going to add a picture of mom to the left side and one of her special says.
|A photo mat on the left and a special fold-out on the right.
|Part 1 of fold-out.
|Part 2 of fold-out and fold-up page treatment.
|This page has a journaling book.
|A frame for a photo. I Tangled Cat-Fern around the outside of the frame.
|This is an example of one of the top tag inserts with a magnet
to hold it down on the photo mat on the page.
|I made it a triangle because I didn't want the whole page to be covered.
|This page has two journaling books. She could add photos instead if she wished.
|This page has an example of a side tag insert with a flip-over tab.
|The inside of the flip-over.
|Such pretty fairy paper!
|Opens to a waterfall for photos.
|Another journaling book.
|I hope she puts a picture of her and her mom here.

Phew, that was a lot of photos. Besides the Enchanted Garden paper, we used a very nice green from Bazzill and black from Recollections I added embellishments from Wild Orchid, and Prima, and used punches and dies from Martha Stewart and Spellbinders.
I hope you enjoyed my mini album. I had a lot of fun making it and learning all kinds of new techniques.
