Creative Cuts & More Mini Album

9**Warning, this is a picture heavy post!**

I wanted to make something special for my soon-to-be Sister-in-Law's bridal shower. I decided to make her a recipe book with my family's favorite recipes.
I used the Mix & Match Album from CCM and covered the pages with cardstock. The fantastic thing about CCM, is that they will cut the cardstock for you to match perfect! I just did mine last minute and didn't have time to order the colors I wanted. This is definitely one fantastic mini album to keep on hand! For the cover I used Jenni Bowlin Crepe Paper Ribbon and Vintage Button to create a flower. I used a Bazzill template and Black Diamond Stickles to create the flourish. I also used an Antique Label.
I created a pocket on the inside for her to add any recipe's of her choice. I used Hinges from CCM on the inside of the cover.
I created the flower by cutting three different sized circles, distressed the edges and wadded them up to give them wrinkles. I then glued some ribbon on the back and stuck a Doodlebug Jewel for the flower center.
The little red shape to the right of the recipe on the right side page is a Antique Elegance Frame.
Here I used Doodlebug Sugarcoating Glitter on a Small Scallop Circle Frame, more Hinges and Doodlebug Jewels.
A closer view of the die cuts, jewels and glitter.
Here I used more hinges.
I had chipboard hinges and spritzed them with some red Smooch.
More Doodlebug Jewels, Antique Elegance Frame and Circle Scallop Frame.
See, I warned it was picture heavy! The smaller tag pages were from my stash, I don't remember where I got them. CCM has some great tags to choose from that would be perfect replacement.
Other products used: Bazzill Cardstock, Wasaul Cardstock, Jenni Bowlin Paper, Buttons and Crepe Paper Ribbon, Adornit Carolee's Creations Paper, Bazzill Flourishes Template, Smooch Spritz, Dashes, Dots & Checks Ribbon, Making Memories Brads, Unknown Rhinestones, Colorox Chalk Ink, Imaginisce Rub-Ons, Glitz Glitzers Stickers.
