I have been a little caught up with work lately and haven't been able to blog as much as I would have liked. I apologize for the same and hope to post more often. So here is a new project I did which is a 6"x 8"Mini Album with a box and 9 specific tags which are placed in the box. The album holds around 40 pics and 12 tags in 5 interactive pages. This album holds few 5"x 7"pics and 4"by 4"pics while most of the pics are 6" by 4"in size. This album was made to celebrate 50th Birthday of a very special lady and was gifted to her by her daughter. Since it has many pictures on the pages, I have chosen to hide them.
I am putting up this project for Monthly challenge at
1 Papericious - Birthday Wishes
2 Allsorts of blog challenge and their theme is Ladies and Girls.
3 The Ribbon Girl - Anything Goes
4 Polkadoodles Crafting challenge#10 -Anything goes.

The spine is 4 3/4"and the covers are 6"by 8". The pages are 5"by 7"in size and have lots of pockets and flipouts. The box is 9"by 6" by 6"in size and has a partition to hold all the extra tags.I have used Papericious Pretty Basics pattern paper for this project along with few solid colored cardstock from Itsybitsy. To build the album I have used white 230gsm Iris Paper and for the box I have used White handmade paper from Itsybitsy. The inside of the box and the album cover is covered with Pink hand made paper again from Itsybitsy.
I have made all the flowers used inside this album using sizzix bigshot and flower dies. I have made around 120 to 150 flowers for the album from the same paper used to make the album and cover. The only exception to this is the flowers on the album cover which are bought from Itsybitsy. The youthful word is chipboard diecut which are covered with the patterm paper and fussy cut. The no 50 is Mdf diecut bought from a local store. All the perals used on ethe cover as well as flower centers are from Itsybitsy. The florishes are cut using MFT die and my Bigshot machine. All in all I have cut around 120 to 150 florishes for this album.
All the photomats are given color on the edge using Memento dye inks. The spine has laces which are bought from a local fabric store. All the ribbons used are from Itsybitsy and the charms are from A1 craft. There are a few envelopes tucked inside this album to make space for letters. These envelopes are made from handmade tissue paper.
Please grab a cup of coffee and sit patiently as there are more pics to come and these pics are of the 5 interactive pages and the inside covers. I have you all like it.
