Eileen Hull: A Little Boo Mini Album

Hi everyone! I’m back today sharing this little mini Halloween album I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! 

I started by flattening and cutting a paper towel roll 5 1/2″ in length.

Next I cut one side open and inked the outside and inside of the “spine” with the Purple Chalk Ink from the ColorBox Paintbox Mercantile Chalk.

I adhered Kraft Halloween Cardstock to the front and inside covers of the mini album.

I placed the Scalloped Border Diecut onto the Base Tray (retired) but you can use a Movers and Shapers Shuttle to hold the diecut in place. I placed the closed mini album cover on top of the Scalloped Border Diecut and ran through the diecutting machine.

I gather some scraps of Halloween cardstock from my stash and cut and folded to fit album.

I cut from the following diecuts: Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Bookmark, Tags and PocketCredit Card Sleeve and Tags and Banners and Pennants Diecuts tags, pockets and banners to decorate the pages and the doily. I also added printables and bits of patterned cardstock to the pockets too.

The other side of the pages I added stickers and a bat diecut from my stash.

The cover I adhered a diecut from my stash of extra cut outs.  The little girl I had printed out several of her in different sizes for a past project and I thought she would make a cute addition to the cover. I did cut around her arm so I could slip the jack-o-lateen diecut underneath it. I added googly eyes to the pumpkin and bits of thread. I cut one of the pennants off the banner diecut and created a little hat for the little girl image. I added a Bookplate Diecut with “BOO” stickers and two mini black gems to the bottom of the cover. I took a part a binder clip and added an Owl Charm, some fiber and clipped to the album cover and  finished off with sequin randomly placed. 

I gathered all the pages and stitched inside the album cover.

I couldn’t help myself  but I added more tags and embellishments to the pages.

I cut tags from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags along with some bits of patterned cardstock, punched a hole in the top of each and put all together with a jack-o-lantern brad and then paperclip to the top of one of the pages. I’m now ready to add mini photos  and journaling of the grand babies.
