Hi there friends. Happy Saturday! Today I have a gorgeous fold out mini album to share with you. It’s a tri-fold out album complete with pockets and tuck-in spots for tags, journal cards or ephemera. It will be great to use as a travel journal/album or as a gift for someone special.
The Front cover is slightly narrower than the main album so you can see the inside flap. I decorated the cover with the beautiful elements from the December Main Kit and the gorgeous die-cuts and stickers from the December Embellishment Kit.
The album is approximately 6 x 8 x 3/4″ – perfect for a gift or to store your ephemera from a trip. It is constructed from white card and decorated with patterned papers throughout. I added a title as you can see above – I love those tiny alphas from the December Pocket Life kit.
Opening up the album, you can see that there is a space for tickets and ephemera on the right hand side. On the left, I created several layered pockets for more tags and journal cards. Cutting the pockets at an angle gives a really professional finish.
Once the album is fully opened, you can see that there is another fold out album inside. I created a design on the Silhouette so I could add the title and fancy edge. (Scroll down for a download link). The frames from the Main kit are perfect for layering elements and detail. The album is secured with a velcro fastener and opens to reveal a series of fold out pages. It sounds complex but was actually easy to make.
Rather than each page being the same size, I opted to create elements of different sizes. You can add more pages to the album by simply sticking additional patterned paper or card between the layers. One of the lovely pockets from the December Pocket Life kit sits on the right to which I added puffy stickers.
There is space on most of the pages for Photos or journaling but in the centre of the album, I created this pretty focal point from die-cuts and a clear sticker.
This inside page has space for a photo or journaling.
I have a short flip through of the album to share with you – it is much easier to see how the album folds out and all the different elements:
If you would like the Silhouette file to cut out your own foldout album you will need 2 sheets of cardstock. Download the file from here:
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you’re inspired to create a mini album for yourself!
