Mini album with Fabscraps new Zooty Cuties.

This is a fun little mini that you can use to hold a picture of your little one at ages 1 through 6.  What fun it would be to have a photo from each birthday stored away in this mini.  This would make a great gift for grandparents too!
 
1.     For the cover: (supplies listed at the bottom of this post)

·       Trace the cover onto a sheet of cardstock and cut out.  Glue this to the backside of the cover.
·       Adhere a ribbon above the wheels as shown in the photo.
·       Remove the hippo tag from the Carder's Pack.  Adhere the hippo tag to the left side of the front cover and embellish with flowers, vines,  and ribbon as shown.
·       Remove 3 of the banners from the Carder's Pack and adhere to the right top of the cover using foam squares or dots to pop them up.  Embellish with small flowers and leaves.

 2.     For the inside cover - page 1

·       Trim a sheet of 6 x 6 paper from the Carder's Pack to 5 x 6" and adhere to the left side of the back of the front cover.  Ink and distress the paper edges as desired.
·       Trim a sheet of 6 x 6 giraffe paper from the Carder's Pack to 4 x 6 and adhere to the right side of the back of the front cover as shown in the photo.
·       Cut a mat from cardstock 2.5 x 3.5" and layer over the left side of the giraffe patterned paper.
·       Remove the "1 giraffe" image from the die cut pages in the Carder's Pack and adhere to the left side just covering the edge of the mat leaving the part that covers the mat free of adhesive so that you can slip a photo under the giraffe.
·       Embellish as desired with flowers, buttons etc.

3.     For all the remaining pages:
·       Paint the pages at the tops and bottoms with white gesso.
·       Ink and distress the edges as desired.

4.     For pages 2 and 4

·       Color over the white gesso with mists or paint so that when you adhere the cardstock in the next step, no white gesso shows.
·       Cut a piece of cardstock 3 7/8 x 7 3/8 and adhere in the center above the wheels as shown.
·       Cut 3 x 3" squares of patterned paper from the Carder's Pack.  Adhere squares 3/8" from the sides on the left and right sides.
·       Cut an oval photo mat from cardstock and adhere to the center of the page as shown.  I've used a Spellbinder's die from my oval. 
·       Remove the  "2 elephant” or "4 hippo" from the die-cut pages in the Carder's Pack and adhere as shown in the photo leaving the part that overlaps the photo mat free of adhesive.
·       Embellish with flowers, bows, buttons etc.

·       Cut a photo mat 2.75 x 3.75" and then cut another photo mat 2.5 x 3.5".  Layer the smaller mat over the larger and adhere to the page as shown in the photo.
·        Layer over the paper from the previous step so that it is aligned with the right side.
·       Remove the "3 zebra" and "5 lion" from the die-cut pages in Carder's Pack and adhere the to left side as shown leaving the part that overlaps the photo mat free of adhesive.
