*Hairpin* Mini Album

Hello everyone!
Today I have another mini album to show you.  I have named this my *hairpin* album.  That's because the pages are held in with hairpins.  
I used Graphic45 *Typography* papers.  I just had an 8x8 pad, so I needed to use some of my Recollections *Memories Documented* as well.
The album measures approximately 4.5 x 6.25 inches.  There are 4 separate sections, each held in place with 2 hairpins. With belly bands, pockets, flip outs & photo mats, there's lots of room for pictures.
This is not my idea, it is another of Anne Rostad's awesome creations.  There's a video tutorial here, if you would like to make one.
There's a lot of pictures to see, so get comfy and I would love to know what you think if you care to leave a comment.

I made the rose from ivory card stock.  Annes album is fastened with a ribbon, but I chose to make a different magnetic closure for mine.



Here you can see the hairpins.

All the narrow flaps in the album are held in place with magnets.


Here is one section opened up fully, the two centre pieces are flip ups.

The end of section one (left) and beginning of section 2

On the left is a small accordion fold insert (below)

Here you can see the hairpins, I managed to find longer ones at Walmart, and they are just perfect.

This is the *Memories Documented* paper

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my latest creation.
Have a lovely day & come back soon.

I believe that is perfectly beautiful, but please forgive my stupidity for asking: What do you do with these when they are finished? Is it for inserting photos?

Babs said...

Hi Lotta joy, yes, its for photos. They can be stuck down to the photo mats, and inserted in the pockets. This particular album has room for lots of 4 x 6 photo's.
Thanks for looking at my blog & leaving a comment.
Have a lovely day,
Babs
