Treasured Memories

If you'd like to watch the video showing each page
and all the twists, turns and flips in this mini I've
included the link above.

This mini was made for my future Granddaughter-in-Law
who is graduating next week

I used a Prima Vintage Treasures adornment
for the front and back

The front and back were run through my
Cuttlebug for the embossing, also for the black spine.

Following are shots of each of the fold outs.
The insides to this mini are 5 12x12 sheets of paper.
Depending on the folds and cuts determines how many flips or
pockets each section has.

Please check out Anne's videos on YouTube which show step-by-step how
to create this mini.  Without her wonderful tutorials I never
would have ended up with these results 

The majority of  papers are from
Bo Bunny's Gabrielle Collection

The spine was created by adding Tvek paper 
to the cardstock for stability;
Running  them through my Cuttlebug to emboss
and then adding several coats of 
Golden Matte medium

Graphic 45 Box and Album

So many new  babies!!!  What fun to create something for a new one for a change and what could be more perfect than the Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection, oh do I love these papers!!  I also used the Graphic 45 Staples 5x5 Box and included mini.  So great to decorate and fast to make.

 All edges were inked with either Stampin Up Bordering Blue
or Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy
Other than the bling on the front of the little album I used mostly paper
for this box and mini.  Something I rarely do, but because of limited
space once the mini is in the box I didn't want to bulk it up even more
with flowers and bling.  Once the photos are included that will 
diminish the space even more.
I popped this little guy, which I fussy cut from the paper, up by 
adhering him to several layers of cardboard (about cereal box
weight) and then cutting him out and inking the edges.
I adhered him to the inside of the box with hot glue.
I cut the little sleeping darling out again and
popped it up on the outside of the mini
to give it some depth.
This little climbing darling was cut out, inked and 
popped up to form the stopper for the mats behind
I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in 
Rockin' On Sunshine
on the front cover of the mini and around all the border edges.
I know it's hard to see in the photos but if you check out
my YouTube video (at the bottom) you'll see the sparkle
this product gives the pages.
