Timeless Mini Album

Happy Weekend Everyone!
It is a rainy Saturday here and I am taking advantage of it in the craft studio today. I would much rather be outside doing some gardening and cleaning up in the yard.
So today I have finally finished my " Timeless Mini Album" . I have had the base of it done for almost two weeks, but was having a hard time picturing how I wanted the front cover to be finished. Today it came to me and here is what I did to finish it off.
Album measures 4 1/2" x 6" .
Each page has a tag in the top of the page. There is 6 pages, 3 have side pockets and 3 are plain.

I made the roses from my cameo and the leaves. I added off white lace to a couple of the pages and to the cover with flat back pearls. I had some butterfly metal embellishments in my stash and added them too.
I really love how this mini album turned out.
I used the stack the deck binding for the pages.
On the inside front and back covers I added a pocket with a couple different size tags to use as photo mats.
This album can hold approximately 48 photos.

I will be making a video shortly on this mini album.
I kept it simple and elegant I did not want to go over on the embellishments.
Thank you for stopping by and seeing my Mini album project today. Stop back often for new projects and tutorials.

Micro Mini Album with Alter Matchbox

Hello Everyone! Happy Tuesday
I have been busy organizing the craft studio and trying to get things ready for a couple of Craft Fairs that I am doing this month and next month.
I have also been trying to set up video taping times to make a few tutorials and more.
I have been working on a Altered Matchbox and wanted to make a little album to go inside of it for a shelf in my room.

Here is the box that I altered... I love how it turned out. The paper is from Recollections at Michael's and it was on clearance and I just love the vintage of this paper.
I cut the butterfly for the Tim Holtz Mover and Shapers die cut and thought it would go perfect with this paper. I added some recollection flat back pearls to the butterfly and curls the wings a little and some tulle behind it to lift it up.

The Micro Mini Album measures 3.5" x 2.25" there is six pages inside to add photos too. I added a brad to the front to wrap the string closure around to keep the album closed.
This album fits perfect inside the drawer of the altered box.

I did make a tutorial video on this Micro Mini Album. You can find it at

Front and Back (chipboard) 3.5 x 2.25
