Mini album in a box


 Hello, it's been a little while since I posted as I've been soo busy creating that I forgot to let you know about my makes! 


Here's a little mini album I made based on a tutorial by Maria Manioti. I used a mixture of physical stash and digi papers from an old CWC usb. I love the flexibility of using digi papers - it cuts down on storage, the ability to resize images, less waste as I only print what i need and the ability to print all one sheet, if that's the one design I want to use all over. 


The eagle-eyed will notice that I just had to add some beautiful Heartfelt Creations dies to create tuck spots/pockets inside the covers too. Each page has a pull out for more photos and I cut these down a fraction so I could use all the left-over paper scraps I had. 


This came together really easily. I inked all aroung the edges of the papers with Spun sugar distress ink too. I love the way the kaleidoscope of butterflies cascades across the page. Let me know if you love these papers and this design as much as I do.
