Love Mini Album } Carta Bella & Xyron Rock

Hey there I have found a new favorite way to make a mini album using envelopes!  I'm soooo hooked on this right now.

For this album I used Carta Bella's Devoted line.  Here are a couple of pics for you.

Check out the use of Maya Road ribbon on the binding :)
I have it tied together with ribbon on the opening side.
As you can see this one is thick, which I LOVE!
Here are just a couple of photos of the inside. I think there are spots for at least 40 photos in this one and tons of fold outs!

I used my Xyron machines ALOT while making this album. There are so many pieces that needed to go into this one it was so easy just running them through either my 510, 250 or even the little pieces through my 150. Some embellies used in this album are from Pink Paislee, Nikki Sivils & Maya Road. Thanks for stopping by! ~Stacy
