Hey crafty friends, It's Conny here and I'm incredibly excited to be here again with another project using the Hello Again Collection! I'm enjoying every project I have created with this collection and today I'm back with another mini-album! Yay! It's gorgeous layered pages with all the embellishments and beautiful papers.

Let's get started!

Firstly, I started by cutting three chipboard pieces. The front cover measures 7” X 5”, the spine is 7” X 2”, and the back cover is 7” X 2.5”. You will also need a piece from the Hello Again Collection - 12 x 12 Acetate - Gold Dots- measuring 7" X 3 1/2”. Make sure the gold side of it facing out, the cool thing about this acetate is that you have a silver and gold side! I covered the chipboard pieces with papers from the coordinating Textured Cardstock Assortment cardstock. On top of that paper, I added some of the Hello Again patterned paper. I also added some This & That stickers, Bits & Pieces and Odds & Ends. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the covers and spine.  Here are some of the pages.

For the album binding, you will need paper that measures 7” X 5 “.  Add the spine chipboard in the middle of that paper 1 1/2” by 3 1/2”, leaving 1 1/2” on both sides. Next, add the covers to the spine together leaving 1/8” on both sides so that the album can open and close easily! 

Let's go embellish the cover pages, here I used the This And That stickers, butterfly, flowers from The Bits & Pieces and Odds & Ends and Gold Sprinkles. So simple yet so beautiful, I’m loving all the gold details.

To create the hinges, you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 7” X 7” scored at every 1/2” building hills and valleys.  Adhere to the middle of the spine, you might need to trim 1/4” of the edges for the hinge to fit perfectly depending on the size of your spine. 

For the pocket pages, I used the coordinating Textured Cardstock Assortment for the pages. 1st page, 7” X 6” scored at 3” 
2nd page, 7” X 7” scored at 3 1/2” 
3rd page, 7” X 8” scored at 4” 
4th page, 7” X 9” scored at 4 1/2” 

Add double-sided tape to the 7” side leaving the inside open for pockets to add memories or journaling. The back pocket 8” X3 1/2” scored at 1/2” all around to create the pocket. Like always I can't wait to see what you create using the collection, hopefully I have inspired you to create this gorgeous layered mini album using Hello Again, see you soon! Have fun and make it yours!
