Girly Girl Mini Album-GC design team

About a week ago I received this awesome Basic Grey paper set Marjolaine from Floren over at Generations Crafting and at first I wasn't sure what to make with them, cause the colors were so not me...LOL
But, I have really gotten into making all these mini albums and I thought to try a different envelope mini and I got the inspiration from a lovely lady on YouTube known as Marion from APieceOfCraftDotCom.. clicking her name will take you to the tutorial video on YouTube..
This was really a quick and easy little mini, the front cover measures 4 1/4" by 4 1/4".. It only took me two days to get it started and finished.. It was so much fun!!

Here are some pictures of the inside of the mini in order:

I used a piece of transparency on the bottom of the left page, inked it and then added a flower and bling.
The right side has a pull out tage and a small tag for journaling.

On the left I added a flip open photo mat and the right side is a transparency sheet, that I cut down to match the other pages.. added some stamped images on it and then a photo mat and flower.
 this is the same page as above, but just the picture mat is flipped open.

flip the page and we have the other side to the transparency, with another photo mat and some ribbon and buttons attached.. The other side has a small photo tag in the pocket.
On the left is just a photo mat, but then on the right we have a tabbed chipboard piece that I have cut down to size, added a pocket and tag.. with some rub-on words and phrases..
Photo mats and tags.
rub on words and some more tags.
  Here i used some run-on "friends" phrases and some of the elements from BG stack

On the left we have a three fold photo mat that I added ribbon to, to help keep it closed and added some rub-on words.. other side is a photo mat and pull out tag.
and finally the last page: another photo mat on the left and then a pull out tag and pocket on the right..

Whew! thats a lot of pages...LOL
I added a one transparency page in there and then I had made a flea market find while vising Florida las summer.. someone was selling a BG Tin re-fill for only $.99, which had some tabbed cardstock in there.. well, I took one and cut it down to size.. fit in perfect..
I had so much fun making this little mini and I can't wait to fill it with photos of my daughter..
and now for supplies Used:

Green and light blue business size envelopes
chipboard (covers)
binder rings
cardstock:  blues and greens
Prima flowers
Prima bling
buttons and brads

  1. Nanne... these is another FABULOUS creation, love it all! Love all the pockets and details in each page. Happy Tuesday!

  2. Another fabulous mini! These colors do look very brownish here .. I thought the collection was blues and yellow and greens. Guess I'll have to wait for mine to arrive and see it IRL. Regardless, it's perfect .. don't know how you come up with all these ideas!
