A Mini Album

Hi there everyone, it is a beautiful day here today and I am on holidays, the house is clean and the ironing is up to date so now it's all about me.

I made a mini album the other day, not for anything/anyone special but because I loved the design. One of my favourite bloggers Christina (OK you are all my favourite) designed this album and I love all of the quirky little hidden things in it to hide messages or photos. Although I didn't have access to some of the craft supplies Christina has I made do and even invented some things on my cricut/gypsy.
So here it is. All the paper is Basic Grey-Indian Summer (my all time favourite range). I must pause here and say that the gorgeous flower on the front was made with the cricut and instructions from Tereesa.
The next pages- a little tag in a pocket.
Love this page, i had to make these little files on the gypsy, you could put photos in there or notes -whatever.

I hand drew and cut the flower on the left and i love, love love the envelope on the next page, it all unfolds so you could hide something in the middle. Behind this there are 3 little tags,

and the last pages, another envelope with a tag in it or money if you are lucky. Both of the envelopes were cut with the cricut.

So there you go, I am not going to gift this one I thought I might keep it and use it for inspiration when i make other mini albums.
All thetas left for me to do today is to plan our holiday in June. We cant decide between Bali or Penang-its a hard life.
Have a great day all
