Chunky Mini Album for Pam

I just got back from my favorite place, Michael's! There's apparently a gas leak somewhere because there were about a dozen fire trucks and police cars barricading part of the road, and I smelled gas. Anyway, I raided their dollar bins for goodies for me and my friends' monthly kit club. Check us out at http://simplyglamorouskitclub.blogspot.com! We are full for February but the list of members can change each term :)

I want to share another mini album with you. This one is for my friend Pam. I haven't done a video yet, but be assured there will be one! I used cardboard as the base for all the pages. It made the album VERY chunky!

I used cardboard for this album. For the cover I ripped off the top layer and revealed the corrugated texture underneath. Then I heat embossed the raised areas and inked the depressed areas. I added glossy accents to all of it to keep it from being so rough. Additionally I added a black corner with glossy accents, four sticky tiles, a "Blessings" sentiment, a Prima flower, and a strand of mini pearls.



The left page: I cut a piece of transparency paper and glued it down on three edges. I covered the glued areas with black paper and added one of my paper flowers. I covered it in glossy accents to make it a bit different. Then I inserted two tags I bought on Etsy.
The right page: I used my Cricut to cut out a top note shape. I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the argyle embossing folder and inked the edges. I accented the raised areas with a black marker. Then I embossed three fleur de lis on the right. I distressed three flowers and added green pearl and gemstone brads.



The left page: I created a pocket with a sheet of tattoo-inspired paper and heat embossed a flourish on the top left. I lined the pocket with black lace and inserted two adorable tags I bought on Etsy.
The right page: The pocket holds one tag and has room for another tag behind it. I used a cross charm on the pocket.



The left page: I again used my Cricut to cut out a top note shape from vintage newspaper that I bought from my pal Miriam. I created the flower on my Cricut with Sure Cuts A Lot. It acts as a holder for the tag that I coated in Glimmer Mist.
The right page: This is an envelope mini :)



The back of the envelope mini and a waterfall card page.



The left page: This is an acrylic frame I painted black and sprayed with Iridescent Gold glimmer mist. I made another paper flower for the corner.
The right page: Simple photo mat with a ribbon flower.


The left page: Pam said she's been into circles lately, so I incorporated them here. The circles fan out.
The right page: Another simple photo mat. The brads hold the hinge in place and will be covered up by a photo.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't hesitate to comment :)
