I just LOVE the MOSD chipboard sheets that are perfect for use in making mini albums. For this album, I started with 3 tabbed sheets and 3 square sheets. I trimmed the 3 square sheets to 5" w x 6" h so that the tabbed pages would extend past the edge of the "non tabbed" sheets.
Then I trimmed two of the three tabs from each tabbed sheet, leaving 1 top tab, one middle tab, and 1 bottom tab.
Then I went to my stash and pulled out my collection the Basic Grey "Granola" line...perfect for a boy themed book:) I found I had the "perfect" striped ribbon from SEI and a sheet of vellum quotes that I've had for YEARS!...so glad to be able to use them.
Of course, for those of you who know me, I can't complete a project without "grunging" it up. I used distress inks and a blending tool to grunge up each page edge as well as the vellum quotes I used. I was also happy to see I had some great buttons in my stash that worked perfectly for this project.
I also used some of the frames from my MOSD stash...I just LOVE these! Last month I used them to make some awesome cards and was able to incorporate them again this month. The reason I love these is that they are so easy to alter. I used Staz on ink on the one above. On those below, I used rub-ons, ribbon and some small buttons to spruce them up. Also below, I popped one up off the page so that I could "interlock" it with the second frame. I received SO MANY awesome colors in these frames! I'm sure they will be a staple in my future projects as they've been already.
I just showcased a few of the pages in my mini album. For a peak at the entire album, click here.
