The secret room in under the box for the coffin mini album and I used the new claw feet from G45

The red and gold page.
 Branch and cat die from Tim Holtz, Spider web from Diamond dies, Spider die from Memory box  and lamp post from Magnolia.
Used different distress inks from TH, pan pastel light gold and inka gold through the album.

The green and gold page.
Spider web die from Memory box, spider and star die from Designer dies,tombstone die from Spellbinders, cross and moon die from TH tree die from Sheena Douglas

Purple and god pages.
Branch and cross die from TH.

The album can fold our all the way.

The tags and photo frames taken out.Used gold embossing powder for the stamped image tag.

Backside and the album can also be opened from this side.
Used different stamps from the collection through the album.

Red and gold pages with tags.
The house can fold open and fastened with a magnet,
House die from TH, bat die from LaLa Land and nest die from Memory Box.

Gold and black pages.
Used the birdcage stamp set, frame hand and gold embossed it on black cardstock. 
The hand is hinged on the side and closes with a magnet. Also made a coffin photomat tag.
Tombstone die from Spellbinders.

All folded out

 With the tags and photo mats taken out. Tombstone die under the house is from Spellbiders with a cross die from TH.

Also made a tombstone menu card to go inside one of the drawers.
Her again I used the branch die from TH and some of the matting is chalk vinyl and I wrote the menu with some chalk markers I had for long time when I was sewing.

The other side.Tag punch from Marvy Uchida.

Had to and make some place cards to go with the menu card.
There will be a separate video tutorial on how to make these.They are fun and easy to make
The base is 2 die cuts labels seventeen from Spellbinders but if you don`t have this die you can make your own shape and I will link to my tutorial under the upcoming video on how to make the shape you like :-)

An of course I had to decorate a bottle also lol so the table can be fun to look at :-)
The belt around the bottle is fastened with velcro so it can be taken of and used on an other bottle.

Bottle with the album shaped as a vase that can go around a flower pot.
Fun to add pictures of parties in the album and display it :-)

Had so fun making this entire project and it is not finish yet lol
Also will make a mini album inside that I will post later.
Wol also be fun to make some napkin holders for it may be out of toilet paper rolls? :-)

You can also glue the pages together like a regular album and I show how to in the video.
