A 'Pleasant' Cascading Mini Album with Tutorial


For today's project, I'm fulfilling a long overdue promise.  Several months ago I created a 'faux' tag mini album with the 'Alpine' collection.  You can see that post here in order to refresh your memory.  I had several requests for a tutorial on how I went about creating the base for this mini.  I've now recreated this mini although I took a slightly different approach.  I feel that this second time around, the mini came out better with the adjustments that I made in creating it.  The mini is now a bit wider providing more room for storing photos, journaling & other memorabilia.

I've used the fabulous Autumn themed collection 'Pleasant' for my mini.  Autumn is my absolute favorite season of the year--so I have to admit that I truly enjoyed using this collection for my project.  


I've fussy cut the owl from one of the ATC cut aparts found in the 'Pleasant' collection & adhered it to the front of my mini.  I absolutely loved this image & thought it would make the perfect focal point to the front of my mini.  I decorated the top border of the front page by adding dots of gold Stickles all along the edge.

Just like the 'Alpine' mini, this album consists of 5 double sided pages & is held closed with a string of jute.  I've used lightweight chipboard for the base of the mini.  The album measures 8" inches in height x 5 1/2" inches in width.  Each spine or gusset, measures 3/8" inches.


I ended up decorating this mini the same way I decorated the 'Alpine' mini.  I've used pockets, belly bands, stand alone 'swing' pockets & several tags in different sizes to embellish the mini.



What I like most about this mini is that it can be stored closed or can be displayed on a shelf or desk.  The design of the mini allows it to be a stand alone album & can be used as a decorative element in any room.


Below you will find two videos.  One is an overview of the mini & the other is a tutorial showing how I go about making the base for this mini--specifically how I use dies to create the top borders for each page.  Thanks for stopping by & enjoy!
