I Am: Sharing My Story

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  
Today I'm sharing over at 
SIMPLE STORIES
with an easy-to-make gifting mini album using the "I Am" Collection

To begin I started with three of the components from the Interactive Elements: the larger
 4X6 flip element, the matchbook element and the tri-fold element:

 I adhered the two smaller elements to the inside pages of the 4X6 element with 
a high-tack adhesive. 

The front was decorated with chibpoard stickers and a ribbon bow. 

When the album is first opened, the original pages from the 4X6 element is given.
  I added a strand of washi tape, a chipboard butterfly, etc.
  The opposite page was left blank.

When the page is turned, you will find the tri-fold element has been added
 to the right-hand page.

Here is a close-up of the front of the tri-fold.


To the inside of the tri-fold, a 3X4 journal card was attached.  The other pages
 were left plain so that small photos or journaling can be added.

As you go further into the 4X6 flip element, the pages get larger.  The left-hand side
 of the page was lightly embellished and the right-hand side is where the
 matchbook-style element was added. 



Just the front of the matchbook element was embellished; the inside pages were left as-is.


I wanted the back of the album to be a bit more sturdy, so a piece of medium-weight 
chipboard was cut slightly smaller than the 4X6 size.  After adhering the chipboard
 to the back page, a covering was made by adding one of the 4X6 journal cards.

Now I have the perfect little girlie-girl gift on hand...with a teenaged daughter, 
we're always needing a last-minute gift for a friend :)

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.
