Kraft 6"x6" Mini Album

My parents just celebrated their 44th anniversary, so I made a little something to commemorate this day and their life together so far: a mini album using Close To My Heart's 6"x6" kraft card and envelopes.  I paired the "album" bases with the Roxie paper pack and the Card Chatter- Love stamp set, adding in various embellishments that I had on hand.  (Here's the whole gang: my parents, my siblings and their families, my family, and my mom's sister.)

Before I began decorating, I used my 3-hole punch (you know, from the office supply store) to punch two holes in each card and each envelope.  Using the 3-hole punch allowed the holes to be uniformly punched on each "page."
Here is the front cover:

Pages 1 & 2:

The envelope flap opened with the pull-out tag:
The right page opened up to make another layout (sketch from Imagine):
Pages 3 & 4:

The right side, opened:
Pages 5 & 6:

Opening the right envelope flap:
See how the flap will tuck behind the photo mat?

Pages 7 & 8:
The slide-out tag from page 8 (the card was turned with the flap at the top and then I cut off about an inch off the right side):
Page 9 (with the same tag from the photo above showing):
Pages 9 & 10:

Somehow I missed a photo of page 10 opened up to show the inside of the envelope and its pull-out tag!  Finally, here is the back cover:
If you're still with me, I'll close with a picture of my hubby and me, because we also just celebrated our anniversary.  We're looking forward to 44 years together, but it will be a while!


  1. So cute! Love those papers. I want to see it filled with photos now...

  2. Our new album is adorable. I will have a fun time filling it up with precious photos. Thanks sooo much, honey. It is perfect!

  3. Congratulations to both couples on your anniversary days!
