Purse Mini

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day!

My project today is a Purse Mini.  The purse shape was cut on my Cricut using the Paisley cartridge -- a cartridge I don't use enough -- and my Gypsy.  The papers used on the mini are from the DCWV Crafty Stack, Colorbok, Recollections and K & Company.  The album is made using an accordion type binding system and it was fun and easy to put together.  Here are some pictures -- some not so great sorry!

The flap on the purse was cut using the Elegant Edges cartridge. The pearls are from Recollections and the flowers I had in my stash.

When you open the purse there is a pocket on the cover and a tag pulls out which can be used for two photos or journaling.  The first page has a flap that you lift up so you can include a photo on the front, on the inside top of the flap and on the bottom.

These two pages are plain, flat pages, but there is a pocket on the side which houses a tri-fold pull-out which you can see a bit of down in the corner of the very bad photo!  Sorry!!!

These two pages flap open horizontally.

Here's another page with a flap that lifts up.
This is another page with a side picket for a tri-fold pullout.

Another bad picture showing one side of the flaps open. 

And finally, the last page. All together there are about 40 spaces for photos and/or journaling.
Well that's my project for today.  I hope you liked it.  I'd love to hear what you think.

One of my girlfriends is hosting a mini album swap- you get some ideas on what someone likes and make a mini for them and then someone makes something you will hopefully like based on a little questionairre-what do you think?
