Colorless Mini Album Swap-My Scrap Room

 Hello Everyone!!!  Here is a project I want to share for the swap I did over at "My Scrap Room".  It was called a "Colorless" Mini Album.  We were to make an album 4 x 6 with six pieces of chipboard using only white, cream, tan, and beige along with tea dye distress ink and black ink for stamping.   My album is 4 x 6 x 4-yeah it is really thick and I made it twice trying to reduce the size of it-but no it came out thick too the second time.  Oh well, I have another mini for me.  I will show that one to you soon too.   The first photo is of the album cover.
 Here is the first and second page.  On the left is a page with a couple of tags and all metal embellishments are from Recollection.  On the right is one of my hand crocheted flowers with a bird die cut from CottageCutz.  I used the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch Around the page for the photo mats.
 Page 3 & 4 is tag pockets using lace and a crochet flower.  The leaves are a CottageCutz die and so is that beautiful Birdcage on the tag on the right. 
 Page 5 and 6 are elements that open to hold photos.  The flowers are Prima and some that I won at the Crop at CKC in Jacksonville.  The wreath is a CottageCutz die.  The stamps are Cloud 9 and something I got a JoAnn's on clearance a while back.
 Page 7 & 8  include a little CottageCutz envelope that opens to include a little mini inside.  The photo mat on the right is spellbinders dies with "Want2Scrap bling.  There are a couple of Marvey Punch glittered hearts behind the crochet flower.
For page 9 & 10 I have another page that opens to place a couple photos inside.  The tags on the right are again the pretty CottageCutz Birdcage.  The doilies throughout are Cheery Lynn.  This was a blast to make.  I really enjoyed it and hope to do it again-just think how cool this would be for Halloween.  Thanks for visiting today.  Below is a video in case you want to see more of the album.  Please excuse the lens cap in the lower left hand corner.  I video recorded this at work so I could send the album off to my swappie and didn't notice the boo boo until it was too late.  Thanks for watching.  Happy Crafting.
