Hello Boardbook Mini Album

Happy Saturday!
I shared this so-fun-to-make mini album over at
DOODLEBUG DESIGNS
a couple of weeks ago and wanted to share here too!
I also have it up for SALE in my Etsy Shop :)

Using just a few pieces of leftover patterned paper and sheets of heavy card stock,
this mini album is so quick and easy to put together!  The assemblage is similar to a
 child's board book and is also very accommodating  for layered embellishments!


To begin I cut five sheets of 110lb. white card stock to measure:
9.75" X 6.25"
9.5" X 6.25"
9.25" X 6.25"
9" X 6.25"
8.75" X 6.25"
Next, I placed each of the sheets onto a scoring board. Each sheet was scored at 4.25"
and then turned 180" and scored again at 4.25".  After folding all of the sheets along
 the score lines, I started building the pages beginning with the longest sheet first.
I added an extreme double-sided tape between all of the sheet's score lines and
 began assembling the pages.  



For all of the pages I used a 4" X 6" mat of patterned paper  and adhered to the center of the page. 
 As shown above, I cut a small strip of 1.25" X 6" paper and attached.

Below is a peek at all of the inner-pages that are photo-ready!  










I decided to leave a few of the pages blank so that larger photos could be added.  
The top of the album was finished off with a trio of Jelly Clips and now
 it's all ready for gift giving!

Have a wonderful weekend!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

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.
