Ocean Breezes Skinny Mini

My second Skinny Mini based on the tutorial by PaperCrafter45
This time I used the K&Co Sea Glass Paper Collection

Adding a fishing swivel and a camera charm
to the corded tie closure
By cutting out the seashells and adhering them to black cardstock
I created stoppers for my inserts

Apron Lace Decorative Punch border completes my flip up tabs

Fussy cutting the word 'OCEAN" from the paper,
inking the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink,
Running through my Xyron 2.5" sticker maker,
and placing on a piece of acrylic creates a pocket
for my mats.

Tuck ins on both sides of the last page

So many place to add a mat

Or tuck in a mini photo folder

or a tiny tiny little place for a note

Lots of room for photos

And a baby envelope on the front cover so I can
add a little note to the receiver.

The cording is run through the back eyelets
and around the Tim Holtz Hitch Fastener on the front

Flower Power Skinny Mini

Based on the fabulous tutorial from PaperCrafter45 on YouTube
Skinny Mini (check her channel out and be sure and tell her Patti sent you!)

I used K & Co's Spring Blossom collection on this mini

With some decorate punches, grosgrain ribbon for the closure,
and a little Glossy Acents and Stickles throughout

Only two sections put together to make one compacted
little mini, super easy and oh so fun to decorate

Lots of places to tuck tags and bifold photo holders

I love the contract of the printed papers with
Core'dinations Black Cat Cardstock

Side pockets, even though skinny will hold extra
photo mini or tags

Add a belly band or a side pocket to
keep your inserts from falling out

A Tuck in here

and a tuck in there

Eyelets hold the ribbon in place
