Mini Album

I used #10 envelopes folded in half to make the pages. I inked the edges of the envelopes, cut the tops off and glued paper on the front, inside, and back. I used black card stock for the background of each photo mat and changed the accent color of the photo mats. The stars are cut from George and are placed like tabs on each photo mat.

The inside cover has a wooden birdie, the leaves are from Home Accents and the photo mat is from Accent Essentials.

For the front of page 1 the photo mat is from the Winter Wonderland cartridge.

On the inside of page 1 I used a half a circle and photo mat cut from Accent Essentials. I also covered another little wooden birdie.

On the back of page one is a piece cut from Fabulous Finds. I stapled the ribbon onto each side of it the piece and added a few of the candy bonbon circles to the top and bottom.

On the front of page two I used a star mesh I made using Design Studio and George. I add a few blue rhinestones to the corner of the journaling mat. On the bottom of the corner I rounded the corners.
The inside of page 2 has ribbon glued to the top and bottom of the pages. I've added buttons on top of the ribbon. The hearts are from George and I used pop dots behind them.. I've also a heart to each of the journals.

The back of page 2 has another star mesh cut file using the George Cartridge. I added a few rhinestone to the top of the white mat.

Page 3 has a cute little wooden birdie with a few accents. The branch on the left is from Home Accents and the branch on the right is from Accent Essentials.
The inside has a few more hears on pop up dots and another frame from Accent Essentials.

The back page has a variety of hearts on it along with a stamped journaling tag.

Here is page 4. The photo mat is from Accent Essentials and has a few of the candy bonbon stars at the top of it.

The inside has another wooden birdie that I've covered in paper, sanded and inked the sides. I've use a small gray pearl accent for the eye.

The leaf border was another cut file I made from Walk in My Garden cartridge. I just glued the border on top of the scallop mat.
Here is the last set of pages for this album. I have a piece of acetate behind the photo frame on this page. The photo frame was cut from Accent Essentials.

I've glued the ribbon to the top and bottom. The scalloped mats were are made with Design Studio. I welded circles and squares together to create the mat, and are inserted under the ribbon. Each scallop has a little blue candy bonbon star on it.
These mats were cut from Accent Essentials. I've used an eyelet to hold them together and scored the top one so it will fold up easily.
