Butterfly Mini Album

I made this mini album for Pea.
We did a "pay it forward" and went a bit overboard, teehee.
Here is a video on the mini I made for her :)

I thought I would add some photos as well.
I enclosed the mini in a wrap around cover.
Most of the flowers are hand made, by my little hands :)
I embossed the paper. I also crackled the wings.
I mostly used Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime papers.
 I forgot to put a photo of the front page.
But to late now, I have one at the end of the photos.
The tags are removable with journal spots.
I fussy or detail cut around the flowers on the paper.
 Here is my take on an art page, teehee.
I used 3 different dies for the butterfly lady:)  I like her so much I think her sister is going to make an appearance in my HeArt Journal.
There is a large tag behind the photo matt.
 I put an envelope flip book on this page.
I put magnets on the sides so it will stay closed.
 Another large tag to journal on.
Here is how I used the Window Envelope with tag that I hosted a swap for.
 Here are the last 2 pages.
The bird cage flips up for some more journal or for a photo.
 Here is the album open all the way from the inside.
I think Pea really liked it. I am so glad that she did.
Here is a video of Pea opening it. Here . Actually she had to make 4 video's, teehee.
Onto my Day:
I cleaned my scrap/craft room. Yahoo. Well I still have some more to do. I have yet to find a place to put my new papers I purchased from my trip. Ya think I have to much paper, teehee.
I was in a frenzy looking for the registration for my jeep. As I was leaving to purchase a new one, I found it in a tiny cubby by the steering wheel. Whew, that made my day.

Hope you had a creative Wednesday.

  6. I LOVE IT, Tracy!!! LOVE the cover design!!! I don't think the book was too simple at all, it was done perfectly for the papers you used. We always feel our work isn't up to par when we're doing it for someone special & PEA must really be someone special!! inventive was that double magnetic ribbon closure?!! You're going to start a new trend with that ya know? ;^)
