The tutorial I used was the All Occasions Mini Album by Kathy King of Paper Phenomenon. If you haven't stumbled upon Kathy's website you must do so now! Her work is gorgeous and her tutorials are easy to follow with lots of pictures and video. Her style is not over the top and more on showcasing the photos and the pretty paper you use in your projects. Her albums also hold a TON of photos! This album easily holds over 50 photos! You can check Kathy out here. She also showcases her products on her YouTube channel.
The only modification I made from her tutorial was that I added some pockets to my pages and jazzed up the cover my album.
This is the center pages of the album and they are mirrored version of each other with stacked belly bands. I love the look! I added some photo mats into the belly bands to hold even more photos.
I used some of the cuts aparts as accents into the album. I just backed them on black a cardstock.
This was an extra that I added to the album that was not in the tutorial. I created another tuck spot to hold photo mats and then I created a spot to hold 2 more photos on the other page to had another interactive element. It has a magnetic closure.
This is how the page looks on the inside of the faux envelope.
I loved how this album turned out! I would like to keep this one, but I can't keep all of the albums that I make so this one is for sale on eBay. You can see the listing here.
