I am so excited to be here sharing a Mini album with this gorgeous Collection- Hello Again! I love everything in this collection, the gold details in everything are just Wow! The album measures 8.5” by 5”. I can’t wait to add photos of beautiful moments with my little one.
Let’s get started! You will need two chipboard pieces measuring 8 ½” by 5” for the covers and for the spine one 8 ½” by 1 ¼” piece.  You will also need 12” by 12”  Texture Cardstock, I chose blush and  and pistachio to wrap the chipboard pieces. For the spine you need 4 ¾” by 8 ½”  piece of cardstock.  Adhere the spine in the middle and score on both sides and fold paper inward. I also added stitching on the front and back cover with my Singer sewing machine!
Next step is to put the chipboard together to create an album.  Adhere the spine to the front and back cover of the album placing the flaps inside the leaving 1/8” gap so the album can open and close. Cover the inside of the album you will need two pieces of cardstock from the Hello Again Collection measuring 5 by 8 ¼”. I used the hearts side of the bright side cardstock.   I added a little pocket in the front.
Inside the Album, on the spine,  I added 3 flaps- First one: 6” by 2 ½” scored at 1 & 1 ½”. Second 6” by 2” scored at 3/4” and 1 ¼” and the third one 6” by 1 ½” scored at ¾” and 1”.  I used double sided tape in the middle and placed one on top of the other and adhered to the middle of the spine.
Let’s embellish the cover page, I added the Gold Dot heavy weight acetate centered leaving 1/8” for a border- I love the tiny gold polka dots, they're  beautiful! I centered clusters of florals from the Bits & Pieces – added foam adhesive for dimension! Then, Fancy Flutters Doodle Pops & gold sprinkles.
For the pages, I used both the 12” by 12” , 6” by 6” patterned papers and 12” by 12” solid textured cardstock to create pockets, pages and flip pages.  I embellished with cardstock stickers and Bits & Pieces.   I even created a cute tassel with the doddle twine in the new coral color! 

Thank you once again for stopping by and we can’t wait to see what you create with Hello Again!
