Mini Album March Workshop

Tomorrow's class we will be making albums to show case those special moments in life. 

We will be creating 4 albums using every day items.  The first one is a pair of dominoes as the covers of the mini album.  The theme I used for this cute little album was dance.  I used alcohol inks for the background on the covers and applied cut outs of vintage dancers.  Inside is accordion fold designer paper that I put dance quotes both front and back with more vintage dancers and stamped images throughout. 

The next mini album I used playing cards.  For the outside covers I used dies cuts or punches to create a design.  I created 3 different inside pages for these albums.  I stabled pages together and used clear tape to bind the cover to the pages.  I punched holes and used ribbon to bind the pages and covers together and the last design was accordion fold album.

The square around album was fun to create it's all in the folding.  I used 8" square designer paper to create these albums.  Each section has a pocket to put your tags with photos or whatever you like. 

The last album is using an old album!  Behind each photo is a pull out page to journal on.  My album is of my two puppies Nitro and Blue.  Loved creating this one and it was pretty quick ones I decided on the photos

Below are photos of all the projects.

In two weeks I will be teaching a workshop using buttons.  We will be making jewelry, magnets and more.  I'll post photos once I get everything made.
