A New Style Boxed Album

Hi Everybody,
Thanks for dropping by.  

I have a new boxed album to show you today.  It is the latest design of Cristi at *Paper Hoarder Disorder* The template and instructions can be purchased at her Etsy store.  It has 12 pages and each page is a pocket which holds a photo mat.  (The instructions also include a 14 page and 16 page album)

I used the  DCWV *Collage Art* paper stack.  
(picture heavy post coming up :)

Open box, the pages are on each side of this one.

*Memories Documented*

Hello friends!

I have another Boxed mini album to show you today.  It is from a pattern that I purchased from Cristi at *Paperhoarder Disorder*

There's lots of pictures to see.....

This is the paper stack that I used, *Memories Documented* by Recollections.  It has lots of cut aparts of various sizes, which are great to use for inserts and tags.

A closer look at the top.
I prefer not to add too many embellishments to the front of my albums.  Some of the papers are so gorgeous that it's a shame to cover them up.   
I made the roses with card stock.  Video tutorial here

The box opens to reveal the pages, each page is a pocket which has an insert, so there's lots of room for pictures.

The *remember* tag is just glued partway so that a tag can slide in under it.

A side pocket on this page

this one has a flip up

This page has a side pocket at the left which holds a 2 pocket corner insert

Another pocket page

Flip up page

The last page on the left has a belly band and picture mat.

Here are some of the page inserts

 Well, time to start another one! lol

Next I'm going to be making another boxed mini, but with a difference this time.  I'll be back to show you when it's done.

Bye for now & have a lovely day!

Up & Down Waterfall Insert

This is my second post today.
This is an insert with it's own pocket that I made from a file folder.  I'm going to put it into a mini album.
Here's the Youtube tutorial  from one of my favourite crafters *Papercrafter45* 

The papers are from The Paper Studio *Poetic Postage* collection.

The top & bottom have pockets with inserts.

That's all for today, thanks for looking!
