*Garden Tea Party* Mini

My latest *crafty* project is this mini album made with the DCWV *Garden Tea Party* paper collection. There are lots of tags and *tea* related sayings included in this collection, so there's tons of room for pictures.

I tried a new binding technique on this one, (new to me anyhow) called *stacked hinge binding*

I found an excellent, detailed tutorial for this album on Youtube, courtesy of *Papercrafter 45*.  There you'll find instructions for this 6.5" x 6.75" album from start to finish, including the stacked hinge.

Now for some pictures, there's lots to see...

 Front cover

Here's some of the pages...

The inside front cover

Some of the right hand pages have flip outs, as you can see in the next pictures

This page has a corner pocket

Some left hand pages have side pockets

 Some pages have pockets across the bottom

Some of the left hand pages flip out to the left as seen below


Inside back cover

The back

I didn't include all the pages here.  I'm very pleased with how this album turned out & will definitely make another one.
 My next project is another mini album using my Cricut *Elegant Edges* cartridge.  The cartridge has a *books* feature, with many designs to choose from.

Thanks for visiting my blog today & come back soon!
