A 'Masquerade' Mini Album With Tutorial

Happy Halloween everyone!  For today's post, I've made a Halloween themed album with the fabulous 'Masquerade' collection. The album measures 7" x 4 1/2" inches and has four 1 1/4" inch spines. The album is held closed with a glittered elastic ribbon. The cover is decorated with both fabric & mulberry paper flowers, a mini pinecone & ghost & bat embellishments.

The inside of the album consists of a pop up page, three waterfalls & three pocket pages.  The pop up page was made with a die by Karen Burniston. I only used the die to create the mechanism for the pop up element as it was the perfect size for this album. There are many tutorials available for these sort of pop up pages. Search on either YouTube or Pinterest for 'pop up cards' or 'twist pop up card'. I've found this tutorial primarily for making a pop up card--but they can be used in mini albums as an interactive page.

The waterfall photo mats measure 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" inches & are decorated with cut apart cards from the collection. The front of the photo mats can store pictures measuring up to 3" x 4" inches. The backside of each photo mat can store photos measuring up to 3" x 3 1/2" inches.

There are two different style of pocket pages in the album. Two pages are simple pocket pages that are decorated with a Halloween die cut image of Trick or Treaters. Inside all the pockets is one cut apart card from the collection.

The pop up page is held closed with a magnet & the waterfalls are kept closed by tucking the bottom pull page of the waterfall underneath the bottom cut apart card adhered to the first page of the waterfall.

Here is the 2nd style pocket page. This page has a simple pocket on the bottom but also has a 'slotted' pocket element on top where small embellishments & card stock stickers can be stored.

Below is a video walk through of the album & also a video tutorial on how to make this album.

Enjoy & have a safe Halloween!
