January Mini Album

I added a few more papers to my January Renew Counterfeit Kit and used some more of the scraps from the prior layouts to make this mini album.

I ordered the wrong size of album and got this 5.5 x 8.5 one but it is perfect for this little mini.

I've been trying to use these mini envelops in my Counterfeit kit for a couple of months now and just couldn't get them on a layout.  They are perfect in this mini album.  I cut around the sentiment, used foam tape to pop it up and tuck the envelope and photo cards behind.

I covered the chipboard tag, added a couple of stamp sentiments, a heart sticker and rhinestone.  I punched out the flags, scored the top, folded it over and stapled the yarn in the seam. 

I just added the journaling spot at the bottom of the page.
I put the sticker onto white cardstock then cut around it and used foam dots being it and the pennants.  They are close to the edge of the page so a photo can be tucked behind.

I cut out the "cherished moment" and added pop up dots behind it.  The heart banner at the top was already put together I just attached it at the top corners.

I added acetate to the this page and put the rub on the acetate so that the photo or journaling will show through.  

 A few prima flowers and rhinestones to the bottom corner.

The journaling card is holding everything in on this page with foam dots behind. I added a few flowers, buttons, chipboard pieces and labels to finish off the page.

"Sweet" is another sentiment I fussy cut, pop dotted and added the flower tucked in behind it.  The polka dot band is holding everything in place on this page.  The label and trim are glued to the background paper.  I used the Baroque die to add some interesting shapes.

I used vellum for the pocket and the large sticker to start my layering. The blue flowers were painted with the Tumbled Glass distress stain. I tucked in a couple of hearts, stick pins, and a label. I used my last envelope on this page.

All of the embellishments I've just carried over from previous Counterfeit Kits and it's so nice to see them used here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Great job on the mini album! I never considered stapling yarn or twine with pennants. It looks terrific!
