Dusty Attic...ATC size Gatefold Mini Album of Love...

 February...The month of Love... Hello Dusty Attic Lovers! Today, I bring to you an ATC sized  Gatefold Mini Album. This mini was a fun one to put together. I followed a tutorial from Alexandra M.  Of course incorporating Dusty Attic Chipboard made it the more sweeter!! It always does. Dusty Attic has chipboard in lots of sizes, from mini to 12x12 page size. These is a size to suit your every project. For my mini, I used a lot of the mini sizes. They were perfect for this ATC sized cover and pages. This mini has pages, pockets and tags. It is a chunky mini, so you can place dimensional pices on each page and it will still close.


Each tab was intentionally left bare, because I found the perfect Dusty Attic chipboard to place on each tab. Just waiting on my next order to arrive. I think the Mini Heart Buttons would be perfect on each tab. Tied with a bit of pink bakers twine!!


This a view of the back of the mini. I used Prima new collection from Frank Garcia, Love Clippings. It is full of Love related papers. Perfect for this mini. And the Dusty Attic Mini Heart Borders were also perfect as well.


The belly band that holds the album together is a great idea. Of course it is the star of the mini album. I tucked the Dusty Attic Leaves #2 into the floral cluster. All of the chipboard was heat embossed using Lindys Stamp Gang Midnight Bronze Obsidian embossing powder.


Here is a view of the mini after removing the belly band,


Each of the pages fold beautifully one over the other before closing the album. There are 6 pages in all. 3 on each side. You can add more pages to your liking, or even place less. It is up to you.


When you open the album, the pages look like this. I heat embossed the "adore" chipboard with Lindys Stamp Gang embossing powder in Midnight Bronze Obsidian.


Then you flip down each page to reveal 2 places for photos or journaling. I placed another piece of chipboard for a title.


When you turn the page, the backside contains a pocket page and there is a tag in each pocket. There are 6 pages and 6 tags in all.


The backs of the tags were left blank for journaling or placing photos.
