Berlin Mini Album + Video

Good evening bloggers! Sorry for not posting these pictures sooner! The video has been up for a couple days on Youtube but I wanted to post it here too. I have been very busy with work, baseball, and my boyfriend lately. Oh and it was also my birthday on the long weekend! It was an awesome time! I went out with friends on Friday night, had my family birthday dinner on Saturday, and had Andrew's awesome family over to our acreage to camp for the weekend. It was perfect!
Anyways, here is the Berlin Mini Album that I finished a few weeks ago. The video is a tad out of date as my crop day with Jordan was awhile ago too. I hope you still enjoy it!

The album is 3.5x5.5 inches, just slightly smaller than a 4x6 printed photo. I used my Cinch to bind it.
I love this camera pattern paper! throughout the ablum I cut out little cameras to use as embellishments. This paper is from Echo Park's This and That collection.
I used some of my beloved flower trim! I got this at Scrapbooker's Paradise and I believe it is from Maya Road.
Here I stamped the date with my date stamp (redundant!) and added one of my polymer clay flowers (for a tutorial on these, click here)
On the left hand page I used Marion Smith's pocket technique. She uses a single sheet, folds it in half, makes a slit for the pocket, and adheres the edges. You can see her do this in many of her printable mini album videos.
On the left you can see how I used Tim Holtz's glacine paper bags. I crinkled and inked it and set it using a heat gun.
Another Echo Park camera! :D
Here is combined hand written lettering and letter stickers for the title.
I used Stampin Up's round tab punch and added eyelets and ribbon for interest. This also creates a pocket by holding the edge together.
Here you can see a "full page spread" of a horizontal 4x6 photo. I just cut it down the middle.
I love adding real tickets and collected ephemera! Here is a yellow tag we got at the airport.
I wrote on the back of my photo after adding some ledger paper. This makes it very easy to keep my writing neat and straight.
On this shorter page I liked how the photo hung off the edge. 2x3 photos make it easy to include lots of small images in your albums!
I love this grunged-looking side view! Hope you enjoyed this album! Keep your eyes open for more upcoming projects (especially clay charms!)
