A 'Frosted' Mini Album

For today's post, I have a project created with the 'Frosted' collection.  This was one of those projects that evolved into what it is as I went.  I can't be the only crafter out there that goes through one of these once in a while right?  I knew I wanted to create a mini, I wanted it to be different from what I've done in the past & that's about all I knew when I started.  Then as I created--it evolved from there.  This is also why I don't have a tutorial for this mini.  I can't even remember how many times I started, stopped & restarted this album--there were a lot of mistakes & failed idea attempts with this one.  :-)

I have to admit though--I really liked the end result.  Sometimes these projects turn out to be the best creative endeavors--simply craft as you go & follow the creative flow.

The mini measures 4 1/2" x 7 1/2" inches.  Mini is held closed with an elastic ribbon.  I incorporated a couple of the matching 'Frosted' coordinating Spectrum card stock--'Denim' & 'Orchid'.

There are three scored spines within this mini measuring 1/2" an inch each.  These spines allow for lots of photos, journaling & memorabilia to be stored within this mini.

There are two waterfalls in this mini.  Waterfalls have 4" x 4" inch photo mats & each waterfall can store up to 12 photos.

In addition to the two waterfalls, there are also two accordion folds that allow for additional storage of photos & journaling.

I fussy cut some of the images found on the 3" x 4" inch cards cut aparts & used them as embellishments to tuck within the album.  For these two pages I used a snowflake border die by Sizzix to create the borders.  The top borders are the negative pieces that remain after cutting out the main image.
Each waterfall is held closed with an 'elevator' belly band.  The name comes from the fact that the decorative element on the belly band can slide up & down the belly band.

There are two purple paperclips that keep the accordion fold elements closed.  I've decorated the paper clips with silver glitter tulle & mesh ribbon.

Find below a short video showcasing this mini.  The mini is capable of folding out in a couple of different ways.  Enjoy!
