Hi everyone :-)
Here is the video of the finish roof mini album with flaps for the dog house stand.There will be 11 video tutorial parts on how to make the album and bind it to the cover using hinge my to hinge binding.It is made with the wonderful Raining Cats and Dogs paper collection from Graphic 45.
The album outside measure 9 x 5 1/2 and inside 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 and has 4 pages.


Inside cover and 1. page with a pocket and tag pocket.

Front flap folds out.

And up with places for photos and journaling :-)

There is one more flap fol out on the inside with photo frames and pockets.

The inside flap also flips up with more places for photos.

Backside of 1.  page and front of 2. page.
Here are some magnetic holders and 2 pockets with tags and pockets.

Backside of 2. page and front of 3. page with slanted pockets.
Tried to coordinate all the pages so they fit together in colors :-)

This pages folds out on each side with photo frames and tags.

Many of the fussy cut adds are fastened with repositionable tape so they can be placed over the photos.

This 2 pages flip down and on the top there are some tags and place for photos or journaling behind.

The bottom flip outs are closed with a banner spinner.

There is a lot of opportunities for making this Dog house and album. You can choose to make a regular cover for the album and store it inside, Glue down the roof with hinges, glue down the house on the stand with hinges, Just make the top part  with a platform and skip the drawers or just make a regular mini album. Will show the different opportunities in the tutorials :-)
