Beginnings Baby-themed Mini Album
Authentique Beginnings Collection has lovely colors of green, yellow, pink, and blue.
Authentique Beginnings Collection Bundle 6x6 Paper Pad. I added some flowers and stars for decoration.
To see every page of the mini, view the video below:
Place the chipboard onto the paper with the teddy bear print facing the table. Make sure to leave 1/8" between the cover pieces and the spine. Angle the corners. Add double-sided adhesive to all the edges.
Micro Basics Sunflower Yellow Check paper. Each separate hinge is 1/2" tall with 1/4" gutters.
Cut paper to 3 7/8" x 8 3/4". Score at 1", 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/4", 2 3/4", 3 1/4", 3 1/2", 4", 4 1/2", 4 3/4", 5 1/4", 5 3/4", 6", 6 1/2", 7", 7 1/4", 7 3/4", and 8 1/4". I created two sets, for a total of 12 hinges.
Spectrum Series heavy weight textured cardstock Robin's Egg One to 3" x 8 7/8" and attach to the spine area. Trim two pieces of decorative paper to 4 3/4" x 8 7/8" and attach to the inside covers.
Place the hinges on the bottom inside cover, approximately 1/4" from the left edge. I overlapped the second set of hinges so that the gutter between hinge 6 and hinge 7 is 1/2". I will attach an accordion fold page to hinge 7.
Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/2" x 4" and attach to the right side of the mini as shown. (I forgot to add the green striped ribbon, which should be tucked UNDER the right center edge of this white panel. I had to go back and add it later, which was a pain!)
I cut decorative paper to 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" and then used a circle die cut template to trim the top of each panel to match the pocket.
Trim 16 pieces of decorative paper to 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" and attach them to the pages. (To see all of my pages, view the video above.)
Spectrum Series heavy weight textured cardstock Robin's Egg One to 4 3/8" x 4 7/8" and attach to the white mat on the right side of the cover, covering the end of the ribbon.
Add a die cut frame to the center of the panel. Use foam adhesive to attach a decorative element from the Beginnings Details cardstock sticker sheet.
Spectrum Series heavy weight textured cardstock Robin's Egg One to 4 3/8" x 5 7/8" and attach to the white panel. Add a die cut frame.
Trim the displayed image from Beginnings Collection Bundle 6x6 Paper Pad and mat with yellow and white cardstock. Attach the image to the left of the frame. Decorate with flowers and stars, as shown.
