Petal Party Mini Album

Hi there
As promised, I'm back with some pics of a mini scrapbook album I made for my friend Kim, who I mentioned in this post, had a new baby girl in January. The album is 6 inches x 6 inches & folds out & out & out to show lots of pages ...a bit hard to photograph though!
To make the album, I used the Stampin' Up! Petal Party Simply Scrappin'® kit & followed this fab project planner, designed by the super-talented Andrea Walford. Andrea's project was based on the 'I Wish' Christmas themed Simply Scrappin'® Kit, but it was really easy to substitute with 'Petal Party'. All you need is half a Scrappin' kit (which includes card, DSP & adhesive die cuts), plus a sheet of white card & ribbon. You'll have plenty of lovely pieces left for a second album or cards to & all for $36.95.

Here are a few more pics of some of the album pages. You'll notice I didn't add any sentiments & left plenty of space, so Kim could personalise it to fit her photos & journaling. This is the inside cover:
& here is an overview of the whole album:
This pic is the centre panel closed. The flowers are all raised on dimensionals, but I didn't fully attach the saffron flowers so Kim could slip pictures underneath.
Finally, here is a pic of Andrea's beautiful original project using the 'I Wish' kit. I've made 2 of these already & I was so pleased how they turned out. I've shown you my version of the cover below, but the remainder of my album is pretty much as per Andrea's planner which you can see here:
I'm looking at running a class to make one of these style albums in May, so if you'd be interested in making one of your own, please contact me to let me know & I'll let you know more information when I finalise my plans.

Important: If you're a Demonstrator & are interested in this project, please go to Andrea's great Demonstrator training site, to purchase her Class Project Planner. It's well worth the investment, plus you'll find lots more wonderful planners.

Anyway, hope you like this project. It was so good to do something scrappy for a change, as It's been a while. Hope you have a happy weekend!
Inky wishes, Di
