Blooming Hopscotch Mini Album


I made a smaller envelope mini album last week, and decided to go for a little more "modern" feel.  (I tend to do a lot of 'Shabby Chic' and Vintage).  I really like the finished results, though I still fuss too much, I think, over the embellishment details.  I have to laugh - I had the album base, binding and mats put together in a couple hours and then spent 3 days adding all the rest.  Heh!  The colors and style (somewhat minimalistic) reminded me a lot of my days as a little girl drawing pictures and hopscotch grids with sidewalk chalk - so I decided to name it "Blooming Hopscotch".




It had a few oops moments so decided it probably shouldn't go up in the shop - but I still like it very much and will either use it for personal photos or give it as a gift to a friend.  Haven't decided yet.  Anyway - here's the pics of the finished album.

SUPPLIES and TOOLS - This one was such a mix of papers and materials, the list would be ridiculously long, if I tried to list all the materials.

The binding is based on Ozgran's wonderful hybrid of Kathy Orta's "Hidden Hinge" binding method and Laura Dennison's "Stack the Deck" binding.
