A different take on the Pull Out Page Mini Album

Hi Everyone!!!

I hope you all are doing well!  I want to say thank you to all of you who pounced on over and saw the wonderful creations my Den Siblings did. We really appreciate it!!!   I have had a few requests to do a tutorial on my latest file folder album I did for The Pride's Surprise Swap.   I am going to get the tutorial done as soon as I can.  

I have a couple of other things brewing on my work table.  For now, I thought I would show you this little variation on my Pull Out Page Mini Album that I came up with.
 A couple of days ago I posted this book, and how I made the pages.  After I did that I had another idea for how to construct the pages, and so I am posting that idea today. I used some leftover papers I had from a tag project I made for the Just a Few Friends Swap, and some other goodies and made a mini packed with tags and space for photos.
 I made the first piece just as I showed in the tutorial here.
 I then cut the second envelope on the left side, just like before, but I made the card to come out of the top of the envelope.  I cut the slit for the card on the top, after measuring it like before.
 I put the card into the left side, then slipped it up through the top...
 ...like this.
 I made a binding piece, just one because I was only planning on doing one page for this mini.  You can bind them however you wish.
 Then I stacked the envelope pages with the side pull out on top, and the top pull out on the bottom, then I added the binding piece between the envelopes before I adhered them all the way together.
 I took another envelope and sealed it, then opened the top and bottom.  Then scored it and folded it down the middle.  This folded over the bottom of the assembled pages...making a pocket on each side.  And, of course, I didn't get a picture of that...Sorry.  In the next pages you will be able to see it.
 So then I made a card stock cover, and went to town with tags and stickers and patterned papers.  I used Carta Bella's Beautiful Moments. I also used Recollections flowers and bling, and the butterflies are by Momenta.
 This is a mini with only the covers and ONE page assembly.
 I used some papers and made a pocket on the front inside cover and the back inside cover.  In this picture on the right, you can see the pocket created with the folded envelope I didn't get the picture of!
 Here are the tags.  I used a card (from the envelope set) to make a big tag, then some of the papers and the cut out journaling cards from the paper set.  The big red tag is card stock, cut at 4 1/2 x 6 1/2" and left plain for placing a photo.
 Here are the pull outs on the front of this page...
 ...and the back of the page.  Here is also the other side of that envelope pocket I created with that folded envelope.  Also, here is the back page.  I made this pocket with a journaling tag from the set.
 These are the tags I made for this side of the mini.
 The card "tags" are cut at 4 1/2 x 6 1/2" and the border strips are adhered so that you can slip the pictures underneath them.
 I left the cards whole, so I could put 4 pictures on each one.
And the back of the card tags.

I hope you enjoyed this alternative to my Pull Out Mini Album!  Again, please let me know if you have any questions!!!

As always, Stay Crafty, My Friends!
