Milestone Mini Album Gift by Lara

Today, I've posted a scrapbook mini album video walk-through of what my sister made for her friend who was celebrating a couple of milestones at the same time. My sister is one crafty kitty! There's lots of room for photos in this 5 page album.

Her friend likes black and red and also purple. So the album base is black and there are some spreads in red and some in purple. Her friend also likes sparkle, so there's plenty of glitter papers in this album too.

My sister was in charge of the design, papers, and embellishments. I helped with the measurements and was a sounding board for the design. (Plus I have a pile of tools so we used my stuff in the making of the album.) The cover was done with a bit of mixed media, so it is made out of black Kraft Tex for durability.

The album base is a pre-made album by Heartfelt Creations. It is 9 x 7 inches on the outside, so the pages are only 8.5 by 6.5 inches. It's too bad they didn't make it a touch bigger because you can't fit a 5 x 7 in landscape. So, we designed it with 4 x 6 inch photos in mind. (The recipient is not a paper crafter.)

The album holds a total of 44 photos in 4 x 6 size. Of those, a maximum of 32 can be horizontal (landscape orientation) and a maximum of 42 can be vertical (portrait orientation). You can see the video on my FairyCardmaker YouTube channel.
