Fall Mini Album - Beauty of Tomorrow Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute little mini album to share with you using the products from the Blackberry Beauty Suite Collection plus a few other items as well.  This is a great little pocket filo album that you can create and tuck in a few photos and a little journaling and put in your bag to carry around to showoff those wonderful Fall pictures.  Here's a look at today's project.

Basic Mini Album: 

To create my little Mini Fall Album I used a piece of 12" x 12" Basic White Cardstock to create the base of the book.  It's super simple to create you just have to fold the 12" x 12" cardstock in half and then each half in half.  Fold up the four corners till they met the score lines and then flip it over and fold the bottom part up until it meets the two bottom points.  Then you fold the top down to almost the bottom edge and then tuck it inside the pockets.  I know that sounds a lot more complicated then it really is.

After all the folding creasing and tucking is done (wow now I know what a drag queen goes through to get ready) It's just a matter of decorating and layering everything up to make it pretty.  I started by decorating the inside of the album with just some cardstock and designer series paper.  The pockets each have a Cinnamon Cider Mat and the Blackberry Beauty Speciality Designer Series Paper.  I also made two journaling cards with the same designer series paper and some Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and Basic White Cardstock so that there's a place to write a little journaling about the photos you place on the cards.

The inside pockets also have a layer of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock to add a place for additional photos and I tucked in a couple of the tags from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack as well to add a place for a little more journaling.  I kept the inside pretty simple to have plenty of room for a few photos and the journaling.  Before I could decorate the outside of the Mini Album I had to add a closure.  I decided to use some of the 3/8" Gold Shimmer Ribbon for this purpose.  I secured it to the front and back of the mini album with some Tear & Tape Adhesive before adding the front and back covers.

 Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle: 

For the front cover and the decorations I used the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set and matching dies to cut out some leaves in Cinnamon Cider, Blackberry Bliss and a few from the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper.   I then stamped my sentiment in Early Espresso Ink onto a piece of Basic White that I cut out with one of the stitched scalloped rectangles from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle includes the Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set and the Beautiful Leaves Dies.  The Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set allows you to send sincere thoughts and wishes with any of your projects. The sentiments in this stamp set will say what is in your heart in the most beautiful way. With a mix of modern calligraphy, classic typewriter fonts, and vintage inspired imagery, this stamp set will never go out of style. Which was one of the reasons I picked it for today's project.  I love the sentiment on the front of the Mini Fall Album.  And the sentiments and vintage imagery makes it perfect for your cardmaking collection. The Beauty of Tomorrow Stamp Set contains 9 cling stamps.

 Adorn your cardmaking or any of your projects with the organic shapes in the Beautiful Leaves Dies! With detailed and realistic oak leaf designs in varying sizes (I used the three smallest ones on my project today), these dies are perfect for layering on card fronts or any project for depth and dimension. For a minimal approach, cut two of the largest die to cover an entire card front to achieve a natural forest floor look.  This die set contains  8 dies with the largest die measuring 6-1/4" x 4".
