Teeny bopper album

I just completed an album for my teenage niece. I hope she likes it...(I guess I won't know unless I get it sent to her! ;o)
However, here is a peek at what I have been working on. I combined a 6x6 Album in Acetate and a 6x6 Album in Chipboard to create this one. I also chose to use patterned paper from the DCWV Nonsense Line. The notebook-looking paper is from Making Memories. For the page on the right, I used a Tag Pocket Card with Tag. On the fold-down flap of the tag pocket, I used my Fiskars border punch to add some pizazz. Before adhering the pocket together I used an EK Success Whale of a Punch (circle) to punch a hole on the bottom left of the front of the pocket. On the tag that is inserted in the pocket, I punched a flower with my Fiskars punch and adhered it so it can be seen through the hole. To add some pattern, I used a stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps to stamp the library pocket (front and back) and the insert tag. I outlined the stamped image with a Gelly Roll clear marker to give it just a hint of bling.

This is a view of the back side of that Tag Pocket Card. I not only stamped it with a floral/flourish in Versamark ink, I also stamped a butterfly (yep...from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps) and a small crown image and colored the image in using Stardust Gelly Roll markers. The sentiment is from a rub-on set by Me and My Big Ideas.

The page on the right was done on one of the chipboard pages. I added a Purse A2 Card with Layer die cut from Creative Cuts and More. It's a darling little purse and you can get it with a little tag that can be inserted in the middle. (see picture below) I wanted another little place to "hide" photos and journaling, so I adhered it to the page and it flips open. The flourish stamp is from Stampendous and the flower is a Fiskars punch.
For the last page I have to show you, I used a cute little Coin Purse Card with Clasps. I adhered a small mat and stamped a journaling block. (stamp from Autumn Leaves) I then made a pocket on the chipboard covered album page and that made a place to insert it to keep it in it's place on the page. It just slips out so it can be opened to look at.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you enjoyed the peek at my newest creation!
