David Tutera Quick and Easy Mini Album

Let’s Celebrate Saturday…with David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system!!!
The David Tutera Card Making system is fantastic for quick, easy and beautiful cards, but it is also perfect to create mini albums too! Designer Jennifer Edwardson created a super cute and FUN mini album for us today…ENJOY!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I chose several pieces to put this fun birthday mini together.  The ‘cover’ to my album is a 5 1/2″ card base and the pages are (2) A7 (5 x 7″) white card bases.  I layered these together and then used my Crop A Dile to punch 2 holes in the spine to thread my twine through.
To embellish the cover I used tags, ballons, twine and a layered sentiment sticker from Step 3 of this system.  The bits to embellish with are so cute and together with some Bella Blvd. alphas they were perfect !!
Once I had my album bound together I started to create all the pockets and photos onto my pages. I added A2 and A1 cards to the main pages to create more spots for photos and cut the edges of a few for ‘hidden’ journaling spots.  I left these space blank as Alex wants to write his memories of his special day in this album (LOVE this :)
I love how it all came together and this shows that by taking great basics and putting them together, you can create amazing ‘step outside the box’ projects !!!

One of our NEW chipboard pieces from the embellishment kits layered on some David Tutera Casual Elegance burlap and more bits of the Step 2 layers!

How pretty is this Step 2 Lace Grid kraft layer? Because they are made to fit the A2 size, they will work perfectly for the 4×6 areas on your Project Life albums.

In the vellum pocket, Trine used a punch of the Step 3 embellishemtns and finished it of with the “So Thankful” sticker.
