"MOM" Cottage Wall Mini Album

Good Morning,

Beside boxes, I also a fan of the mini albums.  I had been working with this "mom" mini album finally had finished and turn it in.  I saw the "word" mini album at AC Moore and thought it was  such a clever idea.  However, I didn't like their album size. As soon as I came home I created this album, sort of!  I had to make the alphabets first.  I cut out  24 alphabets. That took me a few days.  Most of the alphabets measure 6 x  6.  So the album is 6" tall.  The length of the album is depending on what word the album is going to be.

I used transparency to cover the front album so it protected the embellishments.  Then I used the Organza ribbon to tie the album shut.  I also thought it'd be so neat to include the card on the album.  So I created a mini flower pot card for the front album cover.  The three flowers on the top is a pull out tag just like the so popular flower pot card.

On the inside of the front cover, I added a poem about mother that I found online.  Then the first page is "M" there is no space for picture on this page.

Next page is the "O" page.  I added a flip up page for more photos.

Between the "O" page and the last "M" page, I added 4 pages with two pockets for extra photos or for journal.

The last page, when the "M" pages is turned, I also added a few more pages with pockets.  Then I added this pop up flower pot.  I had a hard time creating the pop up flower pot. It could be the adhesive that I used wasn't strong enough.  Can you see the middle tier? The connection leg is popping up.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day!
