BRAG BOOK-MINI ALBUM




     This Brag Book Mini Album measures 4 1/2" by 5 1/2".  It's the perfect sized album if you like to use digital kits and print your own pages.  The largest paper is 9 1/2".  
      I chose 'My Little Chickadee' digital kit from Snickerdoodle Designs because of the dots and stripes backgrounds.  Also, the word art was perfect for my 'Baby Book Theme'.  You can find that kit HERE.
      I chose 'Good Friends' digital kit because I loved all the pastel backgrounds.  You can find that kit HERE.  


      I used the Mini Album Tutorial by Marla on You Tube to construct the basic album.  You can find that site HERE.  


      I printed one side of the papers on 'Whisper White' paper from Stampin' Up.


      Then printed the other side of the papers with the dots and stripes from 'My Little Chickadee' kit.


      I trimmed off the white border from all the papers.  Then followed Marla's instructions on cutting the front cover, inside cover, pages and the photo-mats.


      I used 'Tea Dye' distressed ink by Ranger for burnishing all the edges.


      I gave the edges of the middle tags a tattered look before burnishing the edges.


      Here's a close up of how that looked.  


      Here's a close up of the front cover.  The butterflies were made with a Stampin' Up punch.  For the flowers I used Sizzix thinlits die 'Tiny Tattered Flowers' by Tim Holtz.


      These are the finished two front pages as you open the album.


      I used the word art from 'My Little Chickadee' kit.  I changed the look by adding color and using 'effects' in Photo Shop Elements.


      This is a pic of two of the finished pages inside the album.


      Two more of the finished pages on the inside of album.




                                                             Thanks for stopping by...
