6″ Mini Album | Share What You Love DSP

Last week a very special friend of mine turned 40 and hosted a fabulous party. I wanted to make a bespoke keepsake that could double as gift and a place to keep her party memories.

This made it the perfect opportunity to make my first mini-album.  I’ve been wanting to do this for quite some time and I’m so glad I finally got there!!!  My love of mini albums started when Jacqui Crouch made one for my 5th stampaversary blog hop – and then posted it to me as a gift.  It still has pride of place on my shelf and I love it!

Between a combination of studying Jacqui’s album design, watching you tube tutorials and winging it, this was my final result…

The album cover is 6″ and the pages are approx 5-3/4″.  The whole album is constructed from scratch using the firm cardboard packaged with glimmer paper.  I found this you tube tutorial particularly helpful.

The album contains 12 pages decorated with Share What You Love DSP,.  There’s a mix of fixed photo spaces, cascading photo spaces and photo pages that side out from a belly band.

Of course every amazing gift needs a coordinating card.

I used the same style of card as I shared with you during the week – it’s call a Pull Out Side Pocket Card.  You can find the previous post with instructions and links by clicking here.

Large Numbers Framelits and Milestone Moments that I used for the album & card are now retired – but they are staple parts of my crafting stash and it’ll take a good replacement option before I part with them!

Stampin’ Up! currently only sell packs of 12″ cardstock in Whisper White and Very Vanilla.  The Kraft cardstock I used for the album & card is an alternative brand.

I’m already planning my next album – the question is… which DSP???  What current or retired DSP do you think would make an amazing album design?
