As I’ve shared previously, one my passions at present is creating Mini books. This one I made with a friend using this purchased tutorial by Catherine Chapdelaine as a template and the gorgeous Graphic 45 ‘Time to Celebrate’ collection:

time to celebrate front cover

Each of the pages has flaps and/or pockets to open and large photo mats inside

Some closures have magnets

Others are small tags attached with a brad to allow them to twist:

There is a large slide out photo mat inside each page opening

The front cover has a dimensional image created by paper piecing and fussy cutting many flowers added using 3D tape

The original album was created using the Guilded Lily collection but I have another album in the works with that collection so decided to use the tutorial and adapt it to the Time To Celebrate papers. this is easy enough to do if you work out a double page of papers at a time to keep the colour balance of your designs. I’ve also kept this album fairy basic in it’s decoration to allow loads of room for photographs
