Disney Mini Album

Hi friends, today I'm sharing a Disney album I made for my DD for a Christmas present.  I used all the "Cut Mat Create" dies from Heartfelt Creations for the pocket inserts, photos, and photo mats.  I made the album with chipboard and black cardstock, I used black cardstock to created the binding and all the pages.  I used Disney papers to cover the covers and the pages.
I cut around the image of the princess.
And placed a photo on the back side.
Some of the photos act as pockets were I inserted the character's autographs.
The pocket inserts have photos on both sides, each pocket also holds the autographs of the characters.
Thank you for stopping by.

New Birds and Blooms Collection from Heartfelt Creations

Welcome friends to our first Heartfelt Creations release of 2015, "Birds and Blooms".  Not only did I have a lot of fun designing the paper collection but also playing with all the stamps, dies, and papers to create this mini album.  
I started by making the mini album with chipboard and kraft cardstock.
I created the binding using the “Stacked Hinge Binding” technique.
Closeups of the flowers on the cover.
Once I had made the pages with kraft cardstock I started decorating the inside of the covers and pages with patterned paper and diecuts.
