This is the cover of the adorable 5x5".25" mini album. I used the 6"x6" Craft Perfect Paper collection: The Blue Hues. This collection includes a total of 24 papers in 4 colors: Imperial Blue, Cobalt Velour, Blue Obsidian, and Turkish Turquoise. It is a mirror card collection full of shine and gorgeous color payoff. The Cover of my book includes the Imperial Blue color (Sail Die Cut, Sentiment Strip), along with Turkish Turquoise (Small banners on sentiments). The Turquoise Lake glitter paper was also included in the kit.
Here is the open book. It contains 4 pages with pockets. These are attached with Marigold Yellow twine. On the knotted twine is one element from this kit: A luggage tag, cut out of the gorgeous Turkish Turquoise mirror card. I used the same color mirror card on the pocket to the right. This is also inlaid with the small pieces from the opposing page. All pages also have matching inserts, which are topped with different sized tabs. They are an adorable touch to this small book!
Here is another look at this mini album. The page colors alternate using both Teal Blue and Ocean Blue card, each containing a picture frame. The base, and white matting layers are made with 300gsm cardstock, and the remaining layers are made with Cream, and Ginger Pie card from the kit. I used sentiments and images from the kit, which I stamped and heat-embossed onto the cream card with coordinating colors. The small tag with sailboats is also topped with the included stone drop in Lady Liberty. Its sandy texture is perfect for this tiny ocean-like scene.
I also had some fun with the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse from this kit. I used it in two ways: on vellum, as seen on the easel card, and on the acetate carrier sheet containing the dies in this kit, as seen on the sailboat card. This is yet another way to expand your options in card-making.
