Don't worry Pauline that is fine. Hope you are feeling better soon. There are so many nasty things around. I had 13 in a class today and two had gone by lunchtime not feeling well!! Hope it wasn't my class? Laughing No I'm sure it wasn't!!

Mini Album with pockets.

When you go away on holiday do you, like me, collect all sorts of ephemera?
Brochures, tickets and all sorts of odds and ends that bring back memories of your time away. Then this is the perfect little mini album to take along with you as it has plenty of places to tuck all those pieces into as well as place to write in too.








I started out by making a bunch of 6 x 6 envelopes out of neutral cardstock using the We Are Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
(If you are interested; I have a "how to" post here....


I then started to bind the envelopes using decorative tape to create the pages. Lay two envelopes together and join with tape.


Fold the right side envelope over to the left and add more tape to secure. Repeat to build up your pages.
For my album I have a set of 3 pages and a set of 7.


Put together the outer covers from the Shoal Cover Kit; cover one side of and envelope with glue and glue in place.


Fold the "flap" of the envelope over to the front of the cover.


Paint the covers with fluid acrylics and stamp the Oriental image with archival ink.


Paint the fish front piece white. Then add a layer of crackle glaze. Use Antiquing Cream to add colour and seal with Matte Finish Acrylic Sealer. Glue to the book.


Cut and create a signature and sew it onto the spine of the book in the gap between the two envelope sections. Glue the pages to the envelopes.


To finish, sew some molded sea shells onto the loose threads.

Materials
Neutral card stock

Cut 10 panels of 7" x 5" thick black card stock
6 will be for the pages and 4 for the covers
Cut 4 panels of card 5" long and cut them at
3" - 2" - 1 3/4" - 1 1/2"
Score the 5x3 at 1" on each side with the 5" length vertical
Score the others at 1/2" Stick the strips inside each other - except the largest 5x3


Cut your papers to fit how you want them on your pages


Cover two of the 5x7 panels with your chosen paper
trim the other two panels
stick the front and back covers to the 5x3  spine and stick the trimmed panels over to cover the edges



Now stick the layered section onto the spine


Add the pages using either red adhesive tape or a strong tacky glue


Cover the pages with your chosen papers and embellish how you want


Embellish the cover - I've used an envelope punch board to make a bow and lots of metal bits

Products Used
Kaisercraft Mister Fox Collection
Kaisercraft Wooden Bird
Black Card Stock
Red Adhesive Tape or Tacky Glue
WeRMemory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
