Midi Album

Last Friday I attented a course at Riddersholm Design. The teacher had made a  beautiful mini-midi-maxi album from Riddersholm's very elegant papers: Fall Flea Market. We were 10 people attending and it was a very nice and worthwhile experience. My copy of the album has been changed a bit in comparison with the exercise, however, not much.

For the front page I cut out an image from one of Riddersholm's papers. I backed the lady with dark paper so that she would stand out. From a 6x6 paper stack I cut out the same lady and glued her on the back of the album, also with a dark background.

The album is folded with three main pages and on the front of the first page there is a pocked with some pages for photos. I have closed the pockets with magnets.

When this page is opened (on the inside) there is a album with three pages also for photos. I have decorated the beautiful paper with a lace.

First page of the opened album.

On the middle part of the album there is another pocket like the one in front of page one. Also closed with magnets.

Here the pocket is opened. Room for many photos.

On the last of the three pages there are two smaller pockets made after the same principle as the bog ones. 

There is room for a tag with a photo in each pocket. 

These small pockets are also closed with magnets.

Basket Album

Judy Ann from J. Ann B. Designs designed this Basket Album. However, I changed it so I could have 12 pockets - one for each month, and I used Place in Time-papers from Graphic45. I used the 8x8 album. One of my friends, Lene Mathiasen, came up with the idea to make the twelve pockets instead of 10. I thought it was a great idea and will use the album for remembering birthdays.

Each side contains a large pocket for notes etc. 
and a small pocket for a calendar and a postcard.

BirdSong from G45

The front page of my new mini-album has not been changed. I think that the page is so beautiful that it could stand alone:

The second page folds out and there is a little plastic pocket for at small tag.

The third page opens in the middle

and two wings with pockets can be opened. They are closed with a small magnet.
There is a pocket in the middle with a large tag.

The next page has a little frame with a picture that can be pulled up. To the left the page can be folded out.

Here I made a pocket for a game of cards.

Then we have a couple of triangular pockets for tags.

I made an envelope and put it behind a strip.

The envelope contains a little  booklet with some beautiful pictures.

This page is devided in the middle and opens to the left and to the right:

and then it flips over. The are pockets for some tags and I made a small cover also with room for tags. In the brown pocket there is a little purse for cards and money.

This page has a pocket for a large tag and the small picture has a magnet so it can be removed.

This is a page with a pocket containing a large tag. The pictures of the birds are so sweet.

The last page has a big tag with a bow. The tag has a pocket for a smaller tag. To the left there is a little folder which also has a closed pocket for anything you would like to hide.
