Noted Mini by Yvonne Blair

Hi everyone! 
I am so excited to be here today and share with you a mini I made using Teresa Collins New Urban Market Collection.  Can I first say I am totally in love with this line! 
It is over the top fabulous.  
The colors, the patterns, the designs...oh did she hit this one OUT OF THE PARK!!!
I know it just started shipping so make sure your local scrapbook stores don't miss out on this collection!!!

To create this album I used mailers I found at the Dollar Tree.  I bought two packages to have a nice mini foundation.  I hinged them together using a priority mail envelope that is made from Tyvek.
It is really strong stuff and makes perfect hinges.  
The lovely thing about using the mailers is that you can create instant pockets!
I cut the end of each mailer so they formed a pocket, attached the hinges and then was ready to decorate!

Of course I used my handy dandy Teresa Collins Mega Runner. It is fabulously strong adhesive and really holds the guts of the book together just the way it needs to be. 

Each insert into the end pocket has a flap for added interest.  
It really becomes an interactive book.

 Next the fun stuff! The decorating!
Isn't this paper just scruptious? 
It is so very hard to find any collection that offers this beautiful Navy blue color!!! 
(insert a little bit of squealing!)
This is one of the flaps, that also pulls completely out so as to have a place for hidden journaling or extra pictures.  Choose the best to share out in the main page and then include the rest in the pocket. 
I always have some pics that I want to include by not be quite "there" so to speak. 

 More flappers! hehehe

On this page I created an extra flap with one of the decorative tags from the line.  
I just folded down the top and adhered it to the back of a piece of black cardstock.  
Now I can include up to three pictures in this one spot....or a little extra journaling. 
Easy peasy album.  
And one that you could use as the perfect Mother's day gift for your sister, mom, grandmother or any special woman in your life! 
Hope you enjoyed. 
Be sure to get Urban Market...I promise you will LOVE it!!!
Until next time!!!
