My 'cherished' mini album..

This my second try on a  mini album...and I just love the way this has turned out. Wanted to incorporate pastel colours...shabby chic look ...pockets ... laces ..pearls and so much more!!!
For this mini I made from top and slit sideways to give two  side  pockets on either of the pages..(U can see how they are below)... If anyone wants to know how i made this or any other element in this album lemme know. I'll be happy to help...:)

The mini album has been titled 'cherished'...  I have made a banner out of handmade paper and distressed it with vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks ... and did layering with a distressed doily ..from kukies basket..


 The binding.. with beads and organza ribbon which are a local buy

The back cover... hope u can see the layering of the 2 laces ...that's  because I used 2 covers...with laces on the slightly larger than the other...and layered them

and now the pages..All of 'em on the pages are DCWV fresh floral paper stack from imaginations

There are top loading pockets with photo mats in each envelope pocket page...which I have distressed back and forth using spun sugar distress ink...decorated using die cut flowers and flat back pearls and did layering with peach colored papers which are edge punched with fiskars sunburst punch...  

This is the photo mat on the side pocket..

and I have hand made the small cute journaling tags :)... How do you like 'em??

The page corners I made using real thick parchment papers...

And I just love these lace flowers...they turned out sooo yummy...

A close up of the cute tags..:D

And these fabric flowers with that flower center are sooo shabby chic and beautiful and full !!  ..was so happy when I made 'em..

  couldn't avoid a close up..:P

awww... here is my first try at some quilling..cute flowers..but i love the leaves:)

and now the last page... recently bought the butterfly silhouette punch from A1 craft supply.. dis some layering on thwe butterflies 

this is the pocket tag holder i made and attached it to the last page..the back can hold 4 tags or photo mats...i have used only 3 of 'em..I have used some marriage invite to make these tags..
