Mini Album

I pulled out Page Set 2 from my August Counterfeit Kit to make the Pink Paisley Artisan Album with the Deja View -fresh print Mango papers.

I covered each pages with one sheet from the Fresh Print Mango papers and used a yellow and an orange cardstock so that I only used one sheet of each paper.  The album has 6 chipboard pages so I needed two cardstock pieces. 

One page one I made a vellum pocket. It is a piece of vellum that has a leaf and vine pattern on it which went well with the paper pattern. The "Enjoy Life" is one of the punch outs mounted on foam tape.

After making the pocket tucked in a few tags I made out of the white cardstock which are decorated with some of the paper scraps from the chipboard pages, labels and punch outs from the paper stack.

The back of page one has a white mat that have been inked with olive green

Page two has a 4x4 photo mat back with yellow cardstock and inked in the Terra Cotta.

The back of page two has the orange cardstock with a piece of foam that was die cut using the Stampin' Up Lattice Die. This piece was in my stash.

Page three has a light blue/grey cardstock  with a flower punch out.

The back of page three is a piece of white cardstock layered with a piece scrap from covering the pages. I just trimmed it down to fit the page.

For the front of page I left it alone. I thought about covering it with a doily and photo mat but I liked the pattern paper so I left it.

The back of page four has a photo mat and punch out brackets on it. I forgot to ink the pieces until after it was glued down.

Page five has another 4x4 photo mat this time backed with the orange cardstock. It is inked with Terra Cotta.

For the back of page five I cut my photo mat into three strips of varying widths and used a mini brad to attach the photo holder (I have no idea of what they are called) and a mini zot to hold the mini brad in place.

Page six is another page I left blank.

The back of page six has border at the bottom with a white photo mat inked in Terra Cotta.

Thanks for stopping by.
