An Accomplished Mini Album

Happy Tuesday, friends!  I'm up on the 
today with a quick Graduation gift idea using the new 
Accomplished Collection and the matching Card Making Stack.

You will find that the cards from the stack are of the same high quality as any Authentique paper.  
When doubled together into a card, you have a very sturdy page for a mini album!  

Select six different sheets of the pre-scored cards;  fold each in half along the score line.

Using a high-tack adhesive, apply a strip along each side of the card as shown above. 
 You will have a pocket with the opening at the top.

I die-cut a couple of prints from the 6X6 Paper Bundle and layered them onto the cover page. 
 The reverse side of the Accomplished Components Die-Cuts have a pretty plaid design, so
 I used it as the backdrop for the sentiment sticker.  A few buttons from Petaloo were added
 at the top with glue dots.

For the inner pages, I cut a mat to measure 3.25" X 4.5".

I found some neutral buttons and used those throughout the album.  
Because the base pages were all ready assembled, I used adhesive and foam dots
 to attach all of the embellishments.  If you plan on using brads or hand-stitching, that 
could be done before adhering the sides of the card together or to the mat itself before attaching.

Cork is also a nice neutral to use!  These arrow stickers were a must to go along 
with the sticker sentiment on this page.

I love all of the wordings found on the "Scribe" paper...there's encouragement at 
every turn with this collection.

I ended the album with the "flip the tassel" sticker...I think it's a great place to
 add that final photo of the graduation ceremony :)  

And who doesn't love tags?!?  I cut these from a single sheet of the "Circulate"
 12X12 paper into 4" X 5" tags.  I didn't want a lot of bulk by adding bows to the
 top of each, so I staggered them in the pockets so that every-other-page had a bow. 
 I added journal card cut-outs to the other three there's extra room
 for journaling and photos!

The tags slide easily down into the openings of the cards.  
Finally, I bound my pages together with two rings.  Just keep in mind how much room 
you will need for your tags before punching the holes. 
 Now it's all ready for that special graduate!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
