Kaisercraft Blue bay 9 x 6 mini album part 1

Hi everyone :-)
Have made a 9 x 6 mini album with the beautiful blue/ green Blue bay papers from Kaisercraft.
This album have only 4 pages but there are a lot of pockets, flip outs and tags in this album and I had a lot of fun making it :-) Used the 12 x 12, 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 papers, stickers and the cut outs.Also used some green glitter papers from DCWV.
Love all the quotes in this paper line :-)


Seen from the side. A lot going on here. Flowers from WOC, Prima and Petaloo.
Film strip die from EK Success and the beautiful Cameo embroidery applique is from Annies Etsy shop and here is the link,

Also used a lot of mixed media on the cover.
Used Evergreen Bough Distress ink on my craft mat and mixed it together with Ranger texture paste to get a light green color and smeared it on a brick mask random on the paper. Then spayed over with black and white distress spray. Used Inka gold silver and haematite over the bricks and random over the paper to get a distressed old vintage look.

LOve hidden places and there are a lot of them in this album. Here on the side I made a door with a tag inside.

Dies from Die namics  and Accent it story titles. Corner punch from EK Success.

Side and backside. LOve this door and shutter paper :-)

Cut out a door from the paper line and have a tag inside.

Got the closure from Butter Bee scraps and here is the link to her store,
She has a lot of fun embellishments :-)

The cover open on the side

All folded out

Inside the front cover. Made a pocket out of the door and shutter papers.
Some of the doors and windows can be opened, and closes up with magnets.
All the pages are made from  Bazzill black papers and the photo mats are matted with the same black paper.

Photo mats and the the frame is hold in place with magnets.
Arrow punch from Stampin up and and die from tim Holtz.
Used slot punches from Marvy Ushida on some of the photo mats.

Made a pocket on the right flap and inside I have a tag that I have a tutorial on how to make.

On the left side of the page I cut into the paper to make pockets for tags and photo mats.

On the end of all 4 pages there is a pocket for photo mats.

The right flap folds out. Frame is fastened with a magnet.

And it folds out one more time with an other frame fastened with a magnet so a photo can be plased under or inside the frame.

Under it folds out one more time  to open the left flap:-)
here is also a tag I have a tutorial on how to make.

Under is more place for photos and journaling. Photo mat on the top holds in place with a magnet under the hinge.The key holds an other photo mat.
Key and hinge dies from Tim Holtz

All tags taken out and there is a lot of space for journaling on the top flap.
