Project Life Mini Album Tag Style

So I did a search on what to do with project life cards and this little mini album from Janie Pate using some Heidi Swapp Project Life cards caught my eye. It's so darn cute that I decided I needed tomake one. I've using my Summer Festival Kit from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, and I;m going to use the Project Life Cinnamon Edition cards to make one.

I've use a piece of the We R Memory Keepers Acetate in black for the front and back cover. At this time I have not decorated the front cover as I'm not sure what I want to put on it.

I just cut the acetate into two 4x6 pieces and punched the holes. When I make an album that I'm punching holes in I always make a template so that I can get the holes in the same place.

I've used both the 3x4 and 4x6 card in this album. I've left the 3x4 cards plain so there is room for journaling.

I've cut down a couple of the 3x4 cards and added as decorative elements. For this page I cut out the Love this and turned it into a flag, stamped a scalloped circle and die cut a heart. The photo mat is just stapled on.

Page  two of the 4x6. I did a little bit die cutting, DIY Washi and a smaller photo mat so that the "today" shows.

Page 3 of the 4x6 cards I added a couple of hand cut banners, a punched circle and foam birdie.

Page 4 of the 3x4 cards

Page 4 of the 4x6 has another cut out saying from the 3x4 cards, part of the card hanging out the side and a punched piece.

Page 5 3x4 journaling card

Page 5 4x6 card has a bird on it already so I just added some Washi, a punched circle and banner.

Page 6 3x4 journaling card

Page 6 4x6 has layered photo mat with a mini banner at the top. For the bottom I added a punched shape and a die cut foam heart.

Page 7 3x4 journaling card
Page 7 4x6 card has the die cut details from another 3x4 card cut out and a couple of  mini banners at the top.

For the photo mats I used  2x1/4" x 3 1/4", 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and 3"x4"

Thanks for stopping by.

Such a wonderful idea to use of those cards in this way. Nicely done, you make me want to give it a try.

I have no purpose for this one yet. It will probably be a gift to someone. I really liked the idea and think it turned out great.
