One Sheet Mini Album #3

Howdy Crafters -  Here is my 3rd - one 12x12 sheet of cardstock mini album with pockets!  For this mini album, I pulled things out of my scrap box - you know the extra die cuts, and such that get tossed into a box and forgotten  - LOL - anyway, I am really trying to use up the left-overs and I feel these mini albums work great for that. I also added some embellishments from my embellishment box ... and some of these items I have had for a long time - the mini album is great to start using some of your embellishments.

I used a super cool digital -  J.B Dickey Root Beer - Newton, Kansas which nicely fits things that begin with N Simon Says Monday Challenge.

This mini album has a tag or card in each pocket in which the recipient can record their thoughts, memories, etc. It is a Hodge-podge of items - no set theme -   a "Fly by the Seat of My Pants Mini Album." 

For this album I glued the backs together to create a binding - it is optional to glue the backs - so basically you can create your mini album however you wish - it is art and I say - Go For It! I have listed all of the items I have used and given credit where due - however, some of these items have been sitting around for a long time so I am not sure where I collected them.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you create your own mini album - it really is easy to do and I like the mini album with the pockets  - have a blessed day. ~ Gail ~
