Home Sweet Home Mini Album


I've just finished this 6½ x 6½, 6 page, mini album using Graphic 45's 'Home Sweet Home' paper collection.
It has been made for the RAF Association to raffle off at their Christmas do. I managed to find some little poppies on ebay which made my day, I think they go perfectly with the tiny white blossoms, which are both on the design paper
On the spine I've added a little gingham bow and a cut out from the paper mounted in a cabochon setting with glossy accents
Inside the front cover I've put a cut out, mounted on black card, as a corner pocket and tucked some hand made envelopes in behind it
Each of the pages has a flap with a small bottom pocket
which opens to show one page with a paperclip and on the left hand side a flap which is fixed on 3 sides, both to allow someone to tuck things under them
On the other side of each page is a full height side opening pocket with a 5½ x 5½ folder / photo mat which can be used either way. There is also a small binder clip on each page so that  you don't have to stick anything directly to the paper
Inside the back cover is a pocket (thank you to Clare Charvill for the idea) so you can slip a memo pad in for notes, shopping list etc., whatever it gets used for.
