Treasures Mini Album

Howdy Crafters - I have a mini album today.  I like creating mini-albums even though they take time to put together.
For my base cover and pages I am using the Sizzix Mini Album & Page die - which is a great time saver in getting the mini album started. This posting has photos of the cover and inside pages, along with the supplies used for embellishing - there are a total of 12 pages [well 6 - 2 sides to each page] - lots of pockets with pull out tags to write 'treasures' throughout this album -  I could not find my rings for this album but I found some gold safety pins and look at my second photo to see how these safety pins work to display the mini album - I like this very much!! I just might be investing in Safety Pins for future Mini Albums!
Thanks for stopping by! ~ Gail ~
