Graduation Mini Album for Leah

Hi there!  I'm here to share a mini album I made for my niece Leah who graduated high school this year.  I thought the Teresa Collins Memorabilia collection is perfect for this album.  I used the pattern papers as well as the file folders, chipboard, and embellishments that are part of the collection.

The cover is clear acrylic.  All the pages in the album are of different sizes. 

The first page has a photo mat and a place to add a title or journaling.

Behind the first page is a photo mat made into a pocket with some shipping tags tucked inside.

The next page is interactive.  I made a video which I'll post below so you can see how it looks.
The mini booklet is held together by a brad and a Tim Holtz metal tag.  The "memories" is made with a die by Papertrey Ink.

Here is a  photo mat on the outside of one of the file folders in the collection with a Tim Holtz metal word band.

A pocket made with an Accucut die to store pictures or other keepsakes.

One of the bigger file folders in the collection.  Added the cut out banner and twine.  Perfect for a large group picture or many small pictures.

Another interactive page.  The cutout is attached to the photo mat with washi tape which allows it to open from the side.  The washi tape is from the Summer Stories collection.  Love the cameras on it.

Created a pocket and added more photo mats for her to use.  Prima flowers, bling, and a Tim Holtz filmstrip finish off this page.

Created some mini file folders using a Papertrey Ink die and inserted them in a pocket.  The back page is made of black chipboard.

On the back cover I attached an eyelet and ribbon from which hangs a metal flower embellishment which I put together.

Here is the video if you're interested in seeing more of the album:

Thanks for stopping by!
