Come Fly With Me, Pull Out Page Mini Album

 I made this album, finishing it today.  I came up with a method of creating a pullout page that hides within the main page of the book, and doesn't come out completely.  I was inspired by an album I saw at the craft store by Echo Park that had sliding pages.  I used the Basic Grey papers, "What's Up".  What a cute cute line of papers!!!  It kind of reminds me of whimsical steampunk.  Or, maybe that's just me.
 Some of the embellishments are by Recollections.  I made the cover out of chipboard.
 I love the embellishments with this line of paper...the felt clouds are the bomb!
 I have made 5 of the pages.  There are 5 pull out pages, and 12 pockets.  I have 18 tags in all as well.  The entire set of pages are made of envelopes and the greeting cards that come with them.
 Here is the inside front cover, and the first page.  I attached the pages to each other and to the cover with another envelope, creating the pockets.
 Here are an example of the tags in the pockets...made of the greeting cards.  I used stickers and die cuts to make several smaller tags for the book.
 And here is the pull out page...front...
 This is a little pic heavy, but here are the rest of the pages of the mini album.
 Oh, I love these little toothpick pennants that are a part of the paper line...I used them in every tag, tying them into the ribbons on the tags.
 Cute colors!

Here is a view of the pullouts all pulled out.  These are different than using the usual pullouts for albums.  These won't come out.  There is a way I came up with to make them stop.  I am going to post a tutorial for how I constructed the pages very soon.  If you make an album with this construction, please let me know...I would LOVE TO SEE IT!

Stay Crafty, My Friends!

You come up with such interesting ideas, look forward to you instructions on how the pull-outs are made, then I'll add it to my "to do" list (sigh). Helen (Sydney)
