A Delightful Spiral Bound Mini Album with Carta Bella Spring Market

A Garden Mini

Don't you love the sentiment on the cover of this mini?!  Yes, flowers are a must, they make me happy!  I made this mini, completely from scratch.  The covers are medium weight chipboard and the inner pages are a nice weight cardstock.  I used my Cinch to do the spiral binding, it's quick and easy and makes such a nice finished look.

Sit back and enjoy as I walk you through the many interactive pages in this journal.  There are flip pages and pocket pages, tags and hidden spots that you'll want to see!



All the Details

This Carta Bella collection, Spring Market, is just so pretty.  It has so many cut-aparts and great sentiments.  Let's take a look inside.

I started the inside cover with a simple cut-apart, a border strip and a boot sticker. Those boots are so stinkin' cute.  Truth is, that's why I bought this collection!  Wait 'til you see the boot print page. Cuteness overload!

On the right side I've created a little pocket that has a mini file folder tucked in.  I die cut that with one of my old favorite Sizzix dies. it dates back to 2006-07.  It was made to fit the original Sizzix machine so you know how old that is!

That cute little tag on the left actually flips out so you can hide some photos or journaling.  On the right side, just some pretties from the collection.  I adore the watering can!

The page on the right has a surprise flip, that sentiment cut-apart flips to the left to reveal a spot for photos.

The page on the right flips out so that there are 3 equal sized panels.  There's lots of room for your photos here!

Turn the page, and you'll find a delightful little pocket with an ATC tag in it.  On the right, is another flip out page where you can add photos.

More flip pages!  AND on the right is a pocket page with a nice sized tag tucked in the pocket.  the ribbon is the top of the tag.

When the left page is flipped out, a nice surface is revealed that would be great for photos.  Now look at the boot print, isn't that just adorable?

I think I want to get on the bicycle on the left page and ride through the meadow!   The right page has another pocket with a file folder tucked in.

The right side has a large pocket with a tag in it.  There are so many uses for large pockets, would be a great place to tuck in seed packets if you are using this mini for a gift.

On the left is a waterfall photo feature.  There are lots of surfaces there for photos!  The right side is really nifty, first you've got a nice pocket to tuck in photos.  Then, turn that page and you'll find another full size page that also flips, it's a 3 page flipper!  LOL!  AND it's that fabulous boot print paper!!  Win win all around!

Last two pages, the page on the right sports a small pocket and tag and the page itself, is also a pocket page and there's a much larger tag tucked in the pocket.

View of the opened mini from the back.  There are 12 pages in this mini and that's not counting the flip out pages, so that's 24++ surfaces to add photos, momentos and journaling!
