Hello Everyone.  Today I have been given the honor of being Pimped out by Dezzy Does It.  

In my excitement, I decided that I wanted to use this opportunity to try something new.   I've been watching all of these wonderful videos on making mini albums and keep thinking "How hard can this be?" 

I really need to give credit to Angle Wings 14100 off of YouTube.  She created an awesome video with great instructions. You can access them here - Tutorial Video  

I made my share of mistakes, so give me a little leeway on the creation of my first mini.  I started with some Bazzill Kraft card stock and created my cover and all the pages. Then inked around the edges .
I used the He Said She Said Paper packet from Teresa Collins.  There was an additional elements package that contained mini file folders and I tried to make them fit in too. 

So here's the front cover of the album.  The diagonal card is in a pock and can be changed out.  The flower is hooked onto a magnet for the closure.   It's pretty plain but with some time to think about it, I'll probably keep adding to it. 
 So when you open the front cover.  There's a pocket on the first page with one of the file folder elements added as a tag.  The flap on the right side is also part of a file folder.

 Here's the flap opened up. 

 Here's the second pages of the album.  I left the big square to hold a nice size photo.  The tags on the right side are removable and can be used to mount pictures on the back or do some journalling.

Flip up the page on the right and here's another great spot for a large picture.  There's another large photo and Journalling spot on the tag that comes out of the pocket. The bottom section is a third page with a magnetic closure.

Here's how the page opens up.
 Once you fold the page down I used another file folder to create an added spot.  Then I used three celo bags that are 3" x 6" to create a section of clear picture or tag pockets. 

 Then there's another large spot for a picture  
I hope you enjoyed my first mini album.  It's was an interesting project and I've definitely learned that I need to take a little more time and make sure I have all  my folds right before I start gluing things down.

Until next time,
Happy Crafting
