For today's post I have another cascading mini album. This one is a Halloween themed album made with the fabulously spooky yet charming 'Twilight' collection.
I've done these sort of projects before & have also provided a tutorial on how I make these sort of albums. I'll provide the link to my tutorial at the end of this post.
My plan is to make both a Halloween & Christmas themed cascading mini album in order to show how this sort of album can be applied to any occasion. All you need is a die that fits the intended design. So here's my Halloween album, stay tuned for the Christmas one!
The album measures approximately 9 3/4" x 5 1/2" inches & has four 1/2" inch spines. The base of the album is made from 110 lb black card stock.
To get my Halloween border, I've used the Graveyard border Die by Tim Holtz. Other than the different border die I've used--the rest of the album was put together following the same steps as seen in my video tutorial.
The inside of the album consists of several pockets, swing pockets, belly bands, tags & I was even able to include one waterfall this time. This provides for several places to store photos, journaling and any other memorabilia.
To decorate the album, I've used several elements from the collection, including card stock stickers & 3" x 4" inch cut aparts that I've matted on black card stock.
The album consists of several tags & booklets. The largest tag measures 7 1/2" x 5" inches and the smallest tags measure 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" inches.
There are two 'swing' pockets in this album. One on either side of the tallest page in the album. These pockets measure 5 1/4" x 3" inches.
On one side of the tallest center page, there's one waterfall. These can hold up to nine photos measuring up to 3" x 4" inches.
I hope this album inspires some of you to try your own cascading mini album. It's a versatile technique that can be applied for any theme.
Below are two videos. One is a walkthrough of the mini album and the second is for my cascading mini album tutorial.
