Mini album

This mini album is for a dear friend who lost her mom last year.  This mom was a second mom to me and it was healing to me to be able to work on these albums. I have another one I will post tomorrow for her sister.    I have put two pictures of the front of the album, I am wondering about it, do you think the butterfly is to big? 

This is the inside of the front cover.  the tag is removable.

 Trying to make it close better,  I made most of the flowers pretty flat. 

this next page has an envelope mini ablum on it.  there are 11 pages on it for pictures, journaling or in this case I put in a favorite recipe.  I learned how to do this from a tutorial by tracy of tracy's treasures. Check it out.  Tracy's tutorial  I did not use envelopes but just cut the cardstock to the size of the envelopes. 

Each of these next pages have places to slide in the pictures.  I guess you can see the tags sticking up above the top of the pages.  I did not make each page have a top pocket.  There are I think five pockets. 

This is the back page.  the circle in removable. 


  1. This album is so gorgeous and thoughtful! You better have kleenex ready, because I believe the waterworks are going to start. Don't you just love Tracy's tutorials? I saw the same one you mentioned but haven't made anything yet. Your post has inspired me. TFS!

  2. Beautiful album! It's very thoughtful and special. I'm sure your friend will treasure it. I love that it includes recipes - very nice. :)
