Home made mini album

Hi Ladies
I had intended to take part in a card challenge every day this week, but I haven't managed to do one for today so instead I am going to share with you a mini  album that I started a few weeks ago. The technique is called Stack the Deck and was designed by Laura Denison on a blog called Following the Paper Trail  and several videos showing this technique can be found on Youtube.
The album is not finished yet as I haven't added any photos but the book itself was a delight to make . I have kept the cover of the album quite simple because  I really like the Beau Chateau papers but I may add a few embellishments later.

This is the album closed. For the cover I used Marina Mist card and a sheet from the Beau Chateau range.

The pages are made from envelopes which were then covered with two different pages from the Beau Chateau range. In between the inner of the envelopes I have made two tags, one in Very Vanilla and the other in Pink Pirouette.

This is the middle of the book which has ribbon tied around it and then it goes over the spine of the book which I will add some charms to later. This idea uses 6 envelopes which gives you 12 pages and 12 tags to decorate.
I hope that it inspires you to do something that you perhaps wouldn't normally do.
I am in the process of getting ready for a scrapbooking and card making event on Saturday and have just baked 30 + cupcakes.
Please come back tomorrow when I will show you another 3D project which would lovely on your wall.
