Today I have created a mini album to share using the "Treasure" collection! 
I will show you step by step how to make this mini album.

First cut three pieces cupboard of 8 1/5 x 8 1/2 inch And two pieces
 8 1/2 x 11/5 inch

 Cut three pieces of the patterned paper to 10 x 10 inch and glue them on the three biggest pieces of chipboard

 Cut two pieces of 10 x 4 inch and glue them between the biggest pieces chipboard.

 Cut two pieces of 8 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch and use wet glue! Use your bone folder for the movable pieces

 Cut three pieces of 8 1/4 x 81/4 inch and glue them in the middle of the biggest parts of the mini album

 I used four little 4x4 canvas pieces and glued them in the middle part with strong glue. I like to use tacky glue for this part. 

Cut a piece of 6 x 12 inch and make score lines on the 4 and 8 inch parts.
After this, your mini album is ready to decorate!

I love to work with flowers from Petaloo, they are a great match with our treasure collection.
Don't be afraid to use the different colors between 

 Here on the left I used the piece that I cut last.I added a little fold out mini inside of the mini album. How neat is that? 

 I used the little fancy trims from Petaloo to close this mini on the inside.

I added photos of my daughter and her niece, my grandchild!
I love the aunt quotes that I found on the internet!

 I hope I have inspired you to create your own Spring mini album!
