My American Girl Album

     Hi all! I'm back with the second album I just completed. These are so much fun to  make and are ready for pictures . All the pages were cut using Spellbinders new Grand dies. The main album was cut using Grand Labels One the 3rd of 6 sizes.
     The album cover and pages are cut from K&Company Sparkly Sweet pad plus 2 chip boards for front and back cover. There are 5 double sided pages and plenty of embellishments and tags for journal spots.
     The cute little pop out image is from an embellishment pack of American Girl embellishments I got at Michaels. The green tag on the left is from a cuttlebug tags folder and the pink tag is from K&Company valentine tags. The right mat has corner punches so a photo can slip right in place.
     The left page is double matted and the right side has a pocket with a slip in tag. I love these tags because you can add pictures on the front and back of the tag.
     These are both matted pages with cute American Girl embellishments. There also is a skinny tag to leave a private message!
     The left page leaves room for another picture where as the right side has a pocket to add secret messages, receipts etc.
     This is my favorite page in a mini album. It has double sided tags that slip in a pocket. One side could hold a picture with journalism on the back!
     I love making these albums because they are so much fun to decorate. They are also easy to do when you use a bind-it-all. The album cover has the tags from the Cuttlebug tag folder that I inked and added glimmer mist to. I also added glimmer mist to some prima flowers and of course, a creative charms gradient gem for the flower center! After adding some beautiful ribbons it's done. Now I'm going to add it to my etsy shop if anyone cares to purchase one, lol. Thanks for stopping by.
