"Renew" Mini Album

Hello, Angie Blom here with a Mini Album Tutorial
and the finished Mini Album using the Authentique Collection


To start this mini album you will need to cut some of your papers to the sizes below.
and then just follow the written instructions on each photo.







Here is my finished Album.

For my cover I used one of the Petite folders and then made some  rolled flowers to add with some Petaloo flowers.. the quote is from the throw away part of the paper .. I always keep a few of those to use on mini's, layouts or cards.. it is a great bonus you get with each paper collections.
Here is the inside of the folder.. where I will put 2 wallet size photo's
Using the collections puzzle pieces and some of the titles and phrases.

When adding my journaling I like it to be hidden so with some more of the petite folders
I cut them in 1/3's  and added some word stickers or sticker accents to them .. the photo mats I only
put adhesive on 3 sides to leave the top open for my journaling folders to go into..  This is a great way to add journaling and it doesn't take up any room in your mini.


 Adding another Journaling spot and having a decorative paper clip hold it all together on your page.


You will notice on the Left side of page 4 the bottom strip of the pocket is a border of the puzzle piece elements.. when you take your puzzle pieces out of the paper diecut.. you will notice all the lovely left overs from the sides.. this is what it is.. I love using as much of the sides that you may throw away.. it becomes another fun element to your album or pages.


Here I added another folder for journaling or extra photo's .

Also more pocket photo mats. Some of the round diecuts are great
and they look like pieces of flair. I love that!


I also used some of the larger sentiment stickers.. !!

Hope you give this fun mini album a try.. was alot of fun to make
and embellish with these papers.. Authentique comes with so many wonderfully
decorative elements you really don't have to use anything else.. I love that!!
 Thanks so much for coming by.
hugs
Angie
