A few weeks ago, I took a class at my LSS The Cutting Garden, we made a lovely album. I decided to make one at home for this project, because it used lots of punches :) The patterned paper is all from a 6x6 pad from Prima Paper Pad called Nature Garden. The yummy pink ribbon is from The Cutting Garden. The flowers are from a die from MFT. The bird is a SU punch, I also used a SU edge punch on the tan colored strip at the side of each page. I used my Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink. I also used some Pink liquid pearls.
I cut the mats and tags on my Cricut. I used an EK Success corner punch to make the pink little corner pieces on the mt on the left page. Again the tan pieces on the edge of both pages is stamped with a SU edge punch and the pocket on the left hand page uses a different SU edge punch. The cardstock is all from Michael's.
Don't you love my sentiments? They are all from a gorgeous Fiskars stamp set called Good Times. I bought it specifically to make mini albums. The corner punch this time is a SU punch, and I used the DU bird again. All the ribbon that I used on the tags is from Michael's.
More SU bird punches, the EK success corner punch and edge punch is SU. I have used this punch on the edge of each page of this album, but it shows up so well in the pink paper. On the last page is actually a little book. I just cut a piece of cardstock at 8 1/2 x 5. I folded them in half and then pierced two holes in the middle along the "spine" and fed some twine through the 2 holes to make it into a little book. Lots of extra space to put some pictures at the end of the album. Every stamp I used in this album is from the Fiskar's Good Time set - it is the PERFECT mini album stamp set.
