Not square at Crafty ribbons

Happy Thursday my crafty friends. :) I hope your week has been going well so far. I've actually managed to do some blog hopping this week. Shocking, I know. lol Very little though, but better than nothing, right? ;)

A new challenge just started at the Crafty ribbons blog today and this time we'd like to see your cards/projects that are NOT square or rectangle. Any other shape goes. And don't forget to use some ribbon too. 

I've had this chipboard mini album in my stash for a while, just waiting to be decorated. I thought it would be perfect for this theme, so I grabbed my papers, ribbons (all of the ribbons used in this album are available at the Crafty ribbons store) and other embellishments and went to work. Here's the finished result.

This is the cover of the mini album. I used lots of different die cuts, some pearls, some gems and Handmade by me ribbon to decorate it.

Here are the first and sedond page of the album. I used some more pearls, die cuts and 2 different ribbons (Tulip messages and Hooked with love).

Pages 3 and 4. Here I used some 3D flower stickers, die cuts, gems and Tulip messages and Live, laugh, love ribbons.

Page 4 again - just to show you that it has a pucket that holds a small tag.

Pages 5 and 6. Here I used some flower shaped gems, butterfly punch, die cuts, 3D flower sticker and Handmade by me and Dream, wish, believe ribbons.

Pages 7 and 8. Again, different die cuts, punched flowers and butterfly, gems and pearls along with Love sewing - zips ribbon

And this is the back of the mini album.

I got those papers at the same time as album - they were pre-cut in the same shape as the album, so this was a real time saver. I inked the edges of the papers with black ink pad.

So, this is it. This was my take on the current challenge. I can't wait to see what you'll make! :)

Have a great day!
Hugs! xx

I'd like to enter my album to the following hallenges:

As you like it: Favourite non card project (Besides cards I love making mini albums, because I think they are a wonderful way to store all those special photos. I also like that I can decorate them any way I want, so that they match (in theme) the photos I am putting inside).
