Friendship 6x6 Accordion Album







How fun are mini albums??!!  This little puppy didn't take very long to put together, although I didn't keep track of how long it took... 

I used fellow CTMH Consultant Tresa Black's idea of creating pockets for pull out tags, so I could easily incoporate room for more photos, since this is just a 6x6 sized album.  So photos can be placed on the front and back of the pull out tags.  Now, I went with a completely different type of mini album and decided not to do what she did, but more so because it is just so fun to be creative!

Tresa has a great video tutorial showing different techniques she used on her mini album, and she's running a contest... so check the contest details out HERE.

Tresa broke down her video tutorials into parts for how to create her album, and you can view her album and tutorials here:

There was a paper sale going on at the LSS this week and I picked up this Bo Bunny line I used on this album... it was obviously popular, because there was only a few sheets left from the Flower Child line.  Not quite enough to do an album, so I picked up some papers from some other lines to go with it.  It's all good...  ;)  I am really trying to buy with purpose lately, so when I saw these papers, I wanted to use them on this mini album.  And tada!  Just needs photos... 

I used lots of brads and mini sparkles throughout the album, but you might have to click on the photos to get a better look at the details...

Hope I've inspired you to create something today!

Happy creating!  :)
