Teresa Collins, Life Emporium Mini Album by Tania

Hi everyone,
It's my turn here today, lucky last post for the month!!! Hope you all had a lovely Easter!
I had so many pages left in my Teresa Collins Life Emporium paper pack, that I decided to make a cute little mini album and scrap a day spent with my parents while they visited over the Christmas & New Year break. 

I surfed my Pinterest boards for a little tutorial and came up with this one from Paper Vine!
You start with 8 pieces of patterned paper, each cut to 4" x 8".

Next, you fold all the pieces in half, with the side of the paper you want to show, on the inside, then glue the pieces together, back to back to create the pages! (Make sure your folds are always aligned.)
When all pieces are dry, round the corners with a corner rounder punch!

Cut another piece of paper to 8.5" x 4" for the cover, & round the outside corners.
Make two score lines, at 4" & 4.25", to create the spine for your book!

Glue your cover to the front of book 1st, then glue the back, do not glue the spine!
That's pretty much it!!! You now have a mini book ready to decorate, and you will find the quality of these Teresa Collins papers is beautiful, and when doubled up, they make very sturdy pages.

I used the Life Emporium Decorative Stickers, label stickerscork/wood dots and the cork pieces to decorate my album! Here's a few of the inside pages!

I hope I've inspired you to create your own little mini album. So quick and easy, and when you have a few pics you want to scrap, for a special occasion, it's a great little keepsake! Using a kit or a paper pack means you will have all of your papers and pages coordinated for a cohesive look!
Till next time, Tania :)
