Thankful Mini Album- part 2

Hi-  Hope you all enjoyed a great weekend.   Well it's winding to the end but I thought I'd pop in and share some pics of the inside of my Thankful mini Album.
I showed you the cover last week, so here's the rest of the inside pages and spine.  I used an accordian book spine option instead of wire or rings, covering the outside with coreugated chipboard.

Here's the front view again- I added a door lock and key to the top - but other wise - all the rest is the same, it's just not joined together.


Here's a view of the side showing the spine- I used coreugated chipboard to cover the outside of the accoridian pleated spine.


 
 
And here's the inside!  I have 3 tab sections- the first is Family, where I have 2 Maya Roads envelopes inserted to hold any photos I want to include.
 
 
 
Inside one of the Maya Roads- Photo envelopes

 
The Second tab - is 'Blessings'
 

This has library pockets where I've put strips that I numbered to count my blessings or a reminder of the things I'm most Thankful for!

 
The last and 3rd tab is "Recipe's".  Everyone has their favorites or traditional holiday recipes-
 For this tab I I decorated it with a cup and saucer chipboard element I found and filled with leaves diecut and distressed, an acorn and other elements! 

 
I created some envelopes from long 4 x9 envelopes that I could easily tuck inside recipe cards I want to be sure to use again and again.  I embellished the envelopes with stamped and paper-pieced elements using the Fruit Medley set  I used the mini jar and card labels set to stamp images on the facing page.

 
And that's pretty much all of it- I'm going to post some tutorials on how I converted my recipe pages from the original top-loading envelopes I had, and some other details over on my blog here.  So check it out.
 
 
Thanks - and be sure to check in next week, where we are focused on sharing our latest New Releases on the New Release blog hop here - Dec 10-12!
