Project Life Mini Album

I know so many of us have lots of Project Life, Albums Made Easy, & just those great pieces of patterned paper that are filled with the 3x4 and 4x6 images for us to cut out (super inexpensive way to build up your card collection), etc.... every company is jumping on the pocket scrapbooking band wagon.   But you can only use so many of them right?  many times there are 3-10 of each style in a boxed set so lots of left overs that are super cute but you may not want to use them again in your pocket album.  

So what to do......

I was inspired by Susan owner of EMI Scrapbooking to take a boxed set of the Becky Higgins Project Life Azure Core Kit cards & the matching patterned paper to make a mini album sample & kits for sale at her store.  Each kit included 1 of each of the 3x4 cards & 1 of each patterned paper (when I kit I use every little bit of paper)

I started out just going thru the "decks" of cards to see what inspired me & went together to make an interesting title.  Adding the stamped "us together" words by Ali Edwards completed my title and balanced the page.

This is what I came up with....
I tried to make it generic enough for nearly any kind of pictures you may be taking right now

Here's some of the 33 pages in this album
Cutting up office supply file folders is a great way to add lots of room for photos or journaling.

It's filled with lots of flaps, folders, tabs & pockets 
Another stamped image on the super cute but plain heart card.

Stamping on some of the cards added interest 

I even cut down some of the Project Life cards for title embellishment 

Gluing a piece of paper gives a nice spot to tuck a "book" of cards made by stapling several together 

Fussy cutting of the butterflies brought them over to the other side of the 
2 page spread.  The photo mat is hidden under the paper just lift the flap

All papers are 95% pre cut & stacked for ease of assembly. 
Pre-stamped images, decorative borders punched & flaps scored.
Purchaser will have to do the fussy cutting example butterflies shown above.  
Includes binder rings

I'd love to hear what you think...
