Another mini for my sweet Eva

Hello friends!

Inspiration is such a great thing! And it's really amazing that with all the Internet possibilities we have, we can share what we create with others and inspire them to create too.

After seeing a mini album from this post, I just liked its construction and simple layouts, and the fact the photos were black and white color. I'm really not good (well I suck :)) in layouts for mini albums, so if I want to make a page with a normal look I have to lift a layout from a sketch or from an actual page I see in front of me.

I want to thank to the author of the green mini album from the post linked above, as she inspired me and only because of her I have this cute mini album I want to share with you today.

No explanations are given in the original post about the measurements or instructions on creating this pretty book, so I made it the way I thought it should work.

The cover is closed not only with the ribbon, but also with two magnets, for better strength. The album measures 3 3/4" x 5.5":


Here's what you see once you open the book:


The inside cover is a simple plastic sheet:




 There are 6 pages in the album and here's how they look like:









The last page (on the inside back cover):


The pictures will not really show how cute this album is and how nice it is to flip through its pages and to hold it in your hand :)


I hope this will inspire you to create a mini too, of the same or of a different style.


Thanks for watching!
Have a nice week.


Hugs,
Alexandra
