We have a new challenge for you over at the Totally Paper Crafts Challenge Blog, and the theme is "Inspired by a Song".
I prepared another mini album, and was inspired by a very simple and unpretentious song by Melody Gardot - "Sweet Memory". About Melody herself you may read here.
So, here's the album:
The papers I used are from 2 paper pads (both of them 6X6):
1. Botanical by Prima.
2. Alla Prima by Prima.
All the measurements for the album covers and pages were taken from an absolutely amazing series of tutorials by Ginger AKA MySistersScrapper.
Here are close-up shots of the cover:
On the inside pages I used lots of magnets, so all the flaps stay in place, until you decide to open them.
On the very first page there's a waterfall add-on:
Each of the pages is a pocket, and has a photo mat inside:
On this page I've a added a double slider with additional tag inside of the frame:
The next page also has a frame with an acetate window:
On the following pages there's a kind of mirror layout:
Both of the pages have frames for pictures:
After opening the magnetic flaps:
Once again a mirror layout, with additional frames:
On the last page I've added this cute element with a string opening (Ginger explains how to do that too);
On the inside of the back cover I've glued a pocket, filled it with 4 journaling tags and 2 small envelopes. The pocket is embellished with punched hearts string and stamped letters:
The back is simple:
This one actually took me longer than usual, each of the pages were not finished on the same day :)
Hope you like this mini as well as I do :)
I would like to try my luck in these challenges:
1. 'M' is for @ Alphabet Challenge (my album is a Mini one and it has a Mini Doily die cut on the front cover)
2. Challenge 94 More than one Fold @ Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge
Thanks for visiting! Have a lovely day!
