What I've Been Working On

My friend Misty made a mini that had all these pockets in it. It was made from business envelopes. Her mini inspired me to make one. She originally got the idea from Laura at Following the paper trail. Laura's video shows you how to make the album just in case your intrested in making your own. I used chipboard for the front and back cover and UTEEed it. Man I love UTEE. The paper line I used is called Fashion district by Me and My Big Ideas. I put photo mats into all the pockets and added a file tab to pull them out. There is plenty of room for photos in this mini. I didn't have a theme in mind when I started. Which has been causing me some problems on finishing it. I have a hard time embellishing without know what photos will go in it. I did a few things but have left most of it for a future date when I know what is going in it or if I decide to give it away. I'm going to set it aside for now and work on a mini that is for a swap I'm doing. I might make a video of this one when it is completed. For now though I am off to play.
