Vintage Wedding Mini Album ~ Lots of Pics!!

Hi everyone!! Fern here and I want to share with you this Vintage Wedding Mini Album that I made using Creative Cuts & More 6" x 6" Chipboard Album Covers. Added some Tags and Pockets, but will get to those a little later, and bound it together with album rings. Oh, and don't forget some Killer Red Tacky Tape , or if you prefer the Killer White Tear-able Tacky Tape.. It's a must have to put these together...
Okay, I have a lot to show you, so sit back and get ready to be inspired!!! :o)

Here is my front cover... The paper I used is Ella Blue g . c . d . studios and it's an 8" by 8" (48 sheet) paper stack.. I love the colors of this and it's perfect for my wedding photos... Oh, I forgot to tell you, this is "MY" wedding album... Yep, the photos are of me and my husband back in 1977.. so don't laugh!!!
I've made 3 or 4 of these albums and given them away, I wanted to make one for me and I wanted it to be special and something I can hand down after we are gone..


Here we have (2) Tag #04 in Chocolately Chip - SU Smooth. I embossed these with my cuttlebug. You can also order these with a layer of a different color...





Here I used (3) Tag Card (in Espresso Brown - SU Smooth) with Two Tags (in Blueberry Pie - Bazzill Smoothies) I embossed the top layer with my cuttlebug embossing folder and attached all three together.. The back of the first one to the front of another one.. the back of the second one with the front of the third one... Before I attached them together I added lace between the layers.. and then just attached the last one to my album... Added the layers and then my photos..
Notice the pearl knob on top.. this unscrews and lets the pages drop down... see next photos...


Knob unscrewed..


This is the first Tag Card with layers...


Second Tag Card with Layers


And this is the third or last Tag Card with Layers...


This is a 6" x 6" acetate page. I covered it with a Hambly Screen Print and then I attached the Slash Pocket with Tag #05 Pocket is in Chocolately Chip -SU Smooth and the tag is in Powder Blue - Bazzill Canvas. I also embossed the front of this with my cuttlebug embossing folder...


Here is the tag pulled out... I did a lot of distressing on this album and tags with Tim Holtz Distressing Inks..



The back side of the tag..


The back side of the acetate page is identical as the front.. The Slash Pocket with Tag #05 Pocket is in Chocolately Chip -SU Smooth and the tag is in Powder Blue - Bazzill Canvas. I also embossed the front of this with my cuttlebug embossing folder...

Back side of the tag...



Miscellaneous bling and embellies...


Here is a chipboard pull out...


Back side of chipboard...


Here I made a small flip up held down with the paper clip fastened on top...



Here is the back side of the flip up page... Me and My Dad!!!



Page under the flip up page... This is also a pocket page... If you look closely under the paper clip you can see a tag... I have not journaled on this yet, but I will put some personal family history on it so when this little mini passes down through the years, it won't be a mystery!!! Something I wished my Grandmother would have done for me....


Used a lot of lace on this page, some flowers and bling... Also if you untie the bow you can lift this up and see more photos...


Just so you know.. the reason I am looking at my dear sweet husband like I am, is because I gave him strict orders he better not smash the cake in my face.... And as you can see he didn't!!!! :o)


More embellies and bling...


And here is the last page... Added some flowers, doily, feather, and bling!

Now here on the back, I am going to sign it and date it in my own handwriting, even though I don't like my handwriting. Years from now I think it will mean a lot if I do that....

Well, that's all I got for you today!!!
I hope I've inspired you just a little to go check out the goodies over at Creative Cuts & More!! If you do want to make a mini album, I found it easier for me to find the papers I want to use first. When you've done that just sit down with your paper and shop away... And don't forget to get some Killer Red Tacky Tape or Killer White Tear-able Tacky Tape and some Album Rings!!!
Be sure and check back tomorrow to see more inspiration from the Die Cut Divas!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
Hugs!!!
Fern
