1 hour 6x6 Mini Album ~Instructions on "Dawn's Inspirations" Youtube Video

Here is the mini-album that I made today after watching Dawn's video through twice.  
It's a good idea to do that so that you know where you are headed as each step progresses!!  
This project turned out so well!  
More of these will be made in the near future!! 
There are many creative possibilities to embellishing this album. 
Using coordinating 6x6 papers makes the prep work so easy! 

Designer Papers I used were from Kaisercraft's "Secret Bird Society" Collection
This is the beginning of assembling the pages with the added hinges that create
space for the photos & embellishments. 

I used Delta's Blue Spruce & Martha Stewart's Champagne Metallic Acrylic Craft Paints on the covers & the spine. 

For the covers it worked well to use the thick chipboard that I keep on hand.

Inside Pages
The Spine

On the spine I changed the way that the paper wrapped the area ~ placing the vertical edges on the inside instead of covering the outside of the covers.   
OOPS!!  The photo was taken before the glue totally dried!  It is now sealed tightly.  
Allene's Fast Grab Tacky glue is my favorite liquid glue.  
It gives just a bit of time to make adjustments before it adheres securely.

The finished album awaiting embellishments!  With our sweet grandchildren
I have many photos that need a home where they can be seen & enjoyed.
