3" x 3" Pocket Mini Album

Last night I made a few 3" x 3" mini albums and I thought I would showcase one of them in my post today :)

The first mini album I ever made was for my hubby on Valentine's Day (click here for the original post). I found a great video tutorial via google or pinterest (can't remember which one) and it was super easy to follow! These mini albums are so fun to make and it only takes one sheet of designer paper!

Here's one of my favourites from last night:

I used the new Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP (silly name, beautiful paper!), the coordinating stamp set, 'Rain or Shine', and the Melon Mambo organza ribbon. The inside of the album has pockets with tags in them. Here are a few more pictures of different angles:

I just love how bright and cheery this designer paper is! I think these mini albums would make perfect little brag books!
The Friday Mashup challenge this week is "Singing in the Rain".
  1. Create a project using an "Umbrella Image"
  2. Create a "Double Z Fold Card".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Double Z Fold Card with an Umbrella Image".
I am entering this challenge for a second time this week. While I usually 'mash it up' when I play along with Friday MashUp, this week I decided to opt out and create a project using an umbrella image.

Thanks for looking!
