Happy Saturday friends!!
I wanted to share a cute little mini I made for my friend Gina using the Recollections "The Neopolitan Collection" paper collection and some business envelopes that had been laying around doing nothing. Each of the envies were cut down to size and covered with that yummy paper!! I cut the ends off to create pockets for extra tags for photos, or journaling, and in an effort to save some time, did not photograph each tag.
Here is the front cover made with DCWV Chipboard Stacks Brights chipboard. I used tons of ribbon from my stash and covered an old, hideous chipboard tag with some of the paper collection and softened it with some pink Studio G chalk ink. The flowers are a mix of Prima and Recollections.

On this page, I created a side pocket to hold tags or photos:
On the page below, there is a spot for a photo which you tuck under the happy mason jar "Polaroid" that is partially adhered to the page:
My favorite page - a spot for a photo wherever and however you'd like:
This page below features a matted photo spot:
The next page features an interactive page. The square is tied together with a bow, that when opened, has two photo mats:
Getting close to the end, another page for a photo:
And here is the last page of the mini: another pocket to hold photos or tags. For now, it holds some "Polaroids" that came in the paper pad that were fussy cut and tucked in sweetly. You can journal on the back of those, too!
I just adore making these mini albums!!! They are so, so much fun and come together rather quickly. I truly hope that you'll give one a try!!
Hope you have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
