Our Love Story Mini Album

~ photo heavy post ~

I made another flip flop mini album.  I used crafting supplies that I had on hand.  (It's a New Year's Resolution, to use what I have.)  This pattern paper collection is from Prima, Romance Novel.  {smile}  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  There are a lot of photos for this album, so I am posting the photos over a few days.   I added text to each photo, so my write up will be short.  Grab a cup of coffee, or tea, and settle in for a journey down this creative road.

Here is a photo of the cover and spine.  We'll work left to right.  So, starting with the spine, I added burlap banner from Maya Road.  I added a metal 'W' coin (wonderful), a multi-loop kraft seam binding bow with a pink button.  The cover was fun to decorate.  I added a Recollection door knob plate.  I added a clear plastic door knob.  I added a collection of paper blossoms.  I sponged linen ink on the blossom petals and glitter.  I cut the leaves with a die, using a textured green card stock.  I added a double strand of pearls between the leaves and blossoms.  I fussy cut the letters out 'OUR' and 'STORY'.  I stamped 'Love' in basic black classic ink.  I die cut a swallow from silver glitter paper and adhered it with foam tape.  There is a trio of iridescent sequins, too.

The inside cover has some hand-stamping.  I did add a date tag to the bottom of the inside cover.  Page one has a few folds that provide layers to this interactive page.

Three journalling cards have been removed from the photo corner.  Use this photo corner to hold a wallet size photo and/or the journalling cards.

Opening the flap, exposes a whole page with a journal block (photo corner) at the upper right corner.  The inside of the flap, holds another wallet-size photo matt (with an 'unforgettable' label), tucked behind the ' perfect day' label.

Tags in the glassine envelope allow you to document '10 things you never want to forget'.

The pages were made with Basic Black card stock by Paper Trey Ink.  The lining of the album is made with Blushing Bride card stock by Stampin' Up!   All edges were sponged with Old Paper distress ink by Ranger. Thank you for stopping by.  I'll post page two and three soon.  I hope you have been inspired to create your now mini album.  This album will be added to my Etsy Shop later this week.
