Don't you just love the theme this week - "Mini Albums or Journal Covers" - it is a personal favourite of mine - I love Mini Albums
and cannot resist adding lots of Dies and embellishments to them - I
have tried to exercise some self control with this Album - but...well,
you will see.
This is a perfect project to use those little bits you have gathering on
your desk - if you are anything like me that is! My inspiration started
with a divine box a friend had saved for me, it used to have a Candle
in it - I could see the potential and am so pleased to be using it as
part of a Mini Album, this Album is special to me - as you see the
Tutorial you will see why.

The box did not need to be covered, apart from the drawer front, I have cut a Labels Twenty- Nine Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® using the Size 4 Die, A hole has been punched in the middle to allow the ribbon to be pulled through. This is attached to the front using Scor-Pal® 1/4" tape.
Start by cutting a 30 x30cm piece of Kraft Card into
three widths of 10cm each, scor each one at 10cm. Join each one by
taping the last square of one to the first square of the next length -
do this with all three lengths. Fold in Mountain and Valley folds.
Cut 14 squares of patterned paper using the Classic Rectangles LG Nestabilities. Using a maximum of four different papers - double sided paper makes co-coordinating easy. Using Scorpal Double sided tape, adhere the paper to each of the pages on one side of the card.
Cut and emboss Labels Eighteen Dies and Labels Twenty- Nine Nestabilities®, using the Die as Stencil, sponge using IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink - Desert Sand. Embellish the pages using photographs and embellishments.
Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty- Nine and Postage Stamps Nestabilities® have been used on these pages. After being cut and embossed, the Die has been used as a Stencil, then sponged using IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink - Desert Sand.. The pages have been embellished using recycled lace, Want2Scrap© bling, Mulberry Roses and a sentiment sticker.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have been inspired by my Mini Album - you may not have all of the Dies I have used, but do not limited by that - any of the Spellbinders Dies will work beautifully - you are only limited by your imagination!
Please feel free to ask any questions you may have and I will answer them to the best of my ability. Have a wonderful day!
