Purple paper bag mini album

***This is a picture heavy post***

Hello! Can you believe it's almost the end of January? Where did this month go?! O.o I hope you had a nice first month of 2013 and that the rest will be even better.

Today I want to show you a mini album which I made for one lady who is celebrating her birthday in the beginning of February. I wasn't sure if she would like an album with a whole lot of embellishments and pockets, so I kept it pretty simple. I hope she will like it! I used paper bags to make this mini. Most of the papers are from Disney paper pad (see video - on the bottom of the page - to see which one), but some are from Provo craft as well.

Here are the pictures of the mini ...

The cover

On the cover I wrote the lady's name and her age using K&Co stickers, which I decorated with glitter glue. I also added some butterflies that were made with my craft punch and some ribbon.

First and second page

As you can see, I used some lace and different punches/dies to decorate the pages. I used MS butterfly punch, a tiny butterfly punch, small flower punch and TH fence die. It's a bit hard to see on this picture, but there's also a small birdie on the left side of the fence. This is a stamp and I just cut the birdie out and placed it on the fence.

Third and forth page

I think this is my favourite page in the album. I just love all those flowers and butterflies. I like the embossing too - I used my Faded text background stamp and white embossing powder for this.

Fifth and sixth page

I made some small flowers from a purple tissue paper and used them to decorate this page.

Seventh and eighth page

I did some more embossing here ...

Ninth and tenth page

Here I used some SB Parisian accents dies as decorations.

And here are the tags that you can pull out of the pockets ...

And finally, here's the video I made about this album ...
