Olde Curiosity Shoppe Chipboard Mini Album

Super fun mini album!! I used Graphic 45's new "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" paper collection along with the sticker sheet and chipboard tags #1 and #2. The pages are made with light weight chipboard while the cover is made with medium weight chipboard. The album measures 81/2" x 6".  I used the cinch on the binding.

The front cover has a Tim Holtz charm hanging from the binding.
A view from the top.
 I used a sticky backed cork board paper for this insert.
 Butterflies and bling.
 A black Ranger tag with one of the paper tag cutouts.
 More bling.
 I used three toilet paper rolls and staggered them on the page. Each one holds a wallet size photo matte.
Inside look at the flip pages.
I made a flip photo matte that holds four  4 x 6 photos and  journaling spots.
 The journaling spot above each matte.
 A small booklet tied with jute.
 A college of pockets with tags.
 Last page and inside back cover.

Congratulations for this beautiful mini-album (de toute beauté), I look forward to one of your albums, I have several that I love but I'm in a bad period in my mother's care paliatif, it's difficult and it requires a lot of energy.

  4. Hi Susie, I have been following along on the tutorial for the ABC primer album. I need to ask you about the measurements on the first 2 pcs for the box. I am supposed to have an 8x8 piece of card stock after scoring at 1in on 3 side and scoring at 1/2 on one side only of the 10x91/2 piece of card stock? I did not see a place to email you privately, sorry to leave it on your blog in public!:)
    So, I keep ending up with a box that is 7.5x7.75 or so. Help! I am not good at troubleshooting these kinds of things.
    Thanks so much!

  5. You probably get tired of the same "WOW" from me, but honestly that is the only thing I think when I see your amazing albums!!!
