DIY Mini Album - Tag Pocket page and Pre Punched bird

The DIY Mini Album is from page set four of the August Counterfeit Kit.
I have a total of 60 pages that I punched holes in with the Bind-It-All. The largest "O" wire that I have are 1 3/4". I definitely need to make this mini into a couple of different ones. I pick a piece of paper that inspires me and I work on that page, I am not embellishing the pages in the order that I have it in on the "O" wires - it just works for me.  I am going to show just a few of the pages with a technique I did or thought was interesting.
I have a sheet protector that I put the borders that I have punched, die cut, used the Silhouette or Cricut on and didn't use on a project or cut off.  I put my scraps of cardstock into a one gallon zip lock plastic bag and the pattern paper into another zip lock plastic bag.  I pulled these out when I started making a couple of the album pages. I am also including the Vellum Friendship Quote stack.

This page measures 7 1/4"x 5 1/8", is a pocket, used a border piece from my bag above and has a rub on it.

I used foam tape behind it so there is a little bit of room incase someone wants to tuck something in it.
The Tag was already die cut I just added a label, some graph paper for journaling and a piece of jut for the top.

This is another little page in the album. I just cut out the tag added one the pre punched birds a flower with a button and called it good. I did no a little bit of inking around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Did i miss what will be featured in the book? Anyway, i agree with Lesley that the thought of a 60 page mini is quite something but I also love the mixed sizes and all the elements you are adding. Looks like it's going to be great!
