First Tri-Shutter Album

While looking for a tutorial on the Double Display Card (Thanks Brenda!), I stumbled upon several examples of a tri-shutter album. I really like mini albums since you can actually get them finished in a short amount of time. Decided to try out this technique using some new paper by Basic Grey. Ended up making it a sample for Island Scrapboooking by adding in photos of events over the past year that I've been helping out at the store. The photo at the top of this post is what the album looks like when its closed up. I added a belly band since it would hold it closed better. Since there are multiple folds that the band could get stuck on, I attached it using some velcro dots. Here's what the album looks like when its fully opened. I was able to add 3 vertical photos and 4 small horizontal photos. Here's the first panel... Made that flower using my new large scallop circle nestibilites and just cut slits where each scallop ends so that it looked more like a flower. Here's the middle section of the album. For the smaller panels, I decorated them with dew drops, punched flowers and the new MS flower patch border punch. The two blank panels were left blank so that we could add in "Island Scrapbooking". Needed Michele's help with that, so she's going to see if she can cut it for me. Used butterfly punches to accent photos since they can be placed anywhere and seemed to go with the floral theme. Here's the last panel...
I love this album and am going to make a few more as gifts... so can't post them just yet. I'll probably be teaching a class on them too if anyone is interested in Hilo.
