Mini Album Blog Hop!


Hi everyone!
Happy Wednesday!

Are you ready to hop and get some mini album inspiration??
If you came here from Boots and Bling Time, then you are in the right spot. 
If you just happened to stumble across the hop on my blog today and would like to start at the beginning, then just hop on over and see Mary at Cardz TV.

Before I show you my mini album, I would like to say Thank You to 
for sponsoring this hop with 3 files to one lucky winner!
You can find out more info on how to be in the running for that prize at Mary's blog

Ok, onto my mini album:
*Warning: Very Photo Heavy*

I decided to make an envelope mini based on the tutorial from Kathy Orta that can be found HERE
I made my mini album using notecards and note card envelopes so mine is a little smaller than the one seen in Kathy's video but I just adjusted the measurements to fit my needs.

Here is my mini:
(you can click on the photos to enlarge)
I decided to make my mini into a little album that will be used to hold little mementos and photos of me and my hubby through the years. For the cover, I added some lace and some feather trim to the edge of the album. The flower was made by me using some ribbon and pearls with a few pearl sprays peeking out from behind the flower. I used some glossy accents on the Eiffel tower and on the little crown to give it a little more dimension. All of my patterned papers are from the Blush 6x6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye. My Kraft and Cream card stocks are from Recollections and my Pink card stock is Pink Pirouette from SU!

Inside cover and page 1:
On the inside front cover, I made a mini waterfall to hold some small photos.
You can find the tutorial on how to make a waterfall feature for your mini albums on 
My Sister's Scrapper You Tube Video HERE.
My mini album is not embellished a lot right now. I plan on embellishing more as pictures are added to the album.

A darling mini Stacey and you can pack a lot of photos in this little book! A beautiful flower you made for the front cover! I agree I think it's easier to add more embellishments as you add the photos. I like that you added a tie, these mini's can get pretty big!
