Typeset Mini Album

Here is another mini album which I made using a True Fit File Folio as the base. I scored
it at 6 inches in each direction then opened it out so that it was 24x12 then folded up the bottom half - 
thus making a 24x6 piece which I think concertina folded to make this.
I used the Typeset Workshop on the Go to decorate it and added some of
the Silver Glitz Gel glue for even more sparkle :O)
I am going to give the main pieces - you can decorate it however you like :O)

Veranda Mini Album for Monica

I wanted to make Mini Albums for my dear friends Monica  & Kristine -
so this is what I came up with - the bases for the covers were 4x8 chipboard and the 
back cover was 8x8 chipboard.
I took the gorgeous CTMH Veranda Paper, lots of embellishments
and this is what I came up with :O)
The word LIFE on the front cover was made from itty bitty scrabble style pieces - so I used
the CTMH Tiny Typewriter set and stamped on them :O)
I dry embossed the cocoa cardstock in a criss-cross patters to give it extra texture.
The left hand center page had 2 tags for photos or journalling.
I LOVED this page - the square Juniper colored piece lifted out to reveal the doors 
underneath it. the pocket on the far left was made from clear transparency sheets and
I used brown stazon ink on it and then tucked the oval tag behind it.
Here you can see both tags pulled out on the far left and right.
The 2 center pages were heat embossed using clear powder and then 
sponged ink over the top to reveal the pattern.
 Again I used more of the plain tiles and stamped on them. More tags in the pocket too :O)
You can see on the right hand side that I used a clear card as another half page
and added embellishments and inked the edges.
This was the final page which I added a large pocket for yet more tags - the 
gold square frame started off as a cream frame which I heat embossed
in gold embossing powder. I popped it up on 3D foam tape and then used it to slide
another tag behind it :O)
Here it is with all of the tags pulled out - Hope you like it as much as I did.
Monica and Kristine loved them too :O)
