A Sweet Life Mini Album

Here is my first project using my June Counterfeit Kit!  I made this mini album based off of a video that I saw here on You Tube.  She based it off of Elsa from Just a Few Designs.  Elsa has a video here you can check out.  I made Elsa's version in a Halloween theme right after she made it.  It is the coolest fold, she called it the "One Page Binding Mini Album"...



 Her mini is very cool and each page is made from one 12x12 paper that is cut and folded in such a way to create a cool base that you add things on to for more interaction.
 The following pictures show how many things one "page" has.
 Flap and pockets and tags, OH MY!
 This is the first page turned...and the next page...
And this shows the flaps opened again.  I am going to use each page for each year of my Grandson's Halloween pictures...I can put his first 6 years in here!

Now, for klipngirl's version that I made using my counterfeit kit...

 I used my Tim Holtz die to make the letters and edged them with a glitter pen.  How do you like the mirrored butterflies?
 OK...each page is adhered to a piece of black chipboard.  The base pages are made from black cardstock.  I used my papers from the kit to create all of the cool pockets and folds.  There are tags everywhere.
 This part flips up...
 Then the next part of the page flips up.  More pockets created.  More  tags for pictures and journaling.
 And it flips up again...
 I love this paper!
 So then you turn the page, and I put a picture mat on it, then for the next page, and another bunch of pockets and folds!
I made three pages. total.   I bound with simple binding rings.

So, What do you think?
Stay Crafty!!
