My Peeps - Easter mini album

I finished up an Easter mini album this morning using the springy Delicate Dots SAB (FREE!) papers. I made a Flag Accordian Album - you can click on the name for the directions. It really is quick and easy to put together. It's all ready for me to drop pictures into it after Easter!

I love this little album as a place to put all those extra photos. It's a fun interactive album with the flag style pages that flip independent of each other. I often have many more photos from special events than I want to put into my regular albums. That's when I like to make table top albums that are specific to an event.

The title letters are die cut with my Big Shot and the Serif Essentials Alphabet with Regal Rose card stock. I used Regal Rose to create the spine of the album and then So Saffron and Sahara Sand for the pages and flags. I hid the Certainly Celery Poly Twill Ribbon from the SAB Ribbon Bundle (FREE!) under the squares of the Delicate Dots (FREE!) dsp on the cover. The ribbon isn't adhered down so it can move freely to open the pages and to tie the book closed. I used the birds from Cheep Talk in this album, too - the one on the front and his little branch are stamped in craft ink and then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. The birds inside are stamped in regular ink and then punched out with layers of 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches and the Scallop Punch.
Here are a couple of the inside pages laying flat. I added mats of the Delicate Dots paper along with several more birds scattered throughout the book.
