Oh Boy Mini Album

Outside of creating layouts, I would have to say creating mini albums from scratch has to be my 2nd favorite thing to do!  I actually sat down and finished this mini album in one sitting!  You can't even imagine how proud I was of myself.  Proud is actually an understatement!  Check out my YouTube video which details each page and give a little information about how I made it and the materials I used.

Made completely using kraft envelopes from Hobby Lobby and the Awesome Boy stack from Recollections, this mini album is filled with pockets, tags and other cutouts from the stack!  I didn't use alot of other product...this stack has it all!  In addition, I cut out the title using the Boys Will be Boys Cricut cartridge!

I plan on taking pictures throughout the year (2014) of my boy and using them in this album.  Who else is guilty of taking wonderful, candid photos using their phone and never doing anything with them? too!

I also bought the Fabulous Girl stack from Recollections which has the same wonderful cut outs.  I plan to make a mini album using that stack as well!  I've also had a few friends ask for a tutorial and since I made this mini album "all by myself" (without the use of a tutorial or YouTube video) I think I might have figured out a new binding system using only the flaps of the envelopes and no additional gusset!  That's huge (if that is indeed true, lol!)
