Scrappin In The Smokies Back Flip Mini Album

 I've been taking my
time with this back flip mini album by Laura Denison, so I decided to post the first signature that I have finished. Who knows when I'll get the entire thing completed. This one has been a lot of work, but oh so fun! Plus, I'm remembering every detail of that vacation in the process.

I'm using the Engraver
collection by Prima on this... both 12" x 12" and 6" x 6" papers. These fabulous die cuts are from my favorite scrap shop, Your Scrapbook Super Store in Sevierville, TN (the bear is flocked paper). The flowers are Prima Serenity, the canvas leaves are also by Prima, and the foliage was cut with a Spellbinder's Foliage die and a Martha Stewart Oak Leaf punch. The metal corners are Idea-ology.

Inside front cover... another
YSSS die cut and Petaloo teastained flowers and leaves.

The back flip mini has
six signatures in three styles. This first one starts out with a page with a flap...

that flips back to
expose a pocket with a photo mat. Now this page flips down...

and I have another
pocket at the top with a photo mat and a photo mat at the bottom ( I have to say this is the worst possible photo of me, but other than that I love it of us and had to include it). Fold this all back and....

I have this...
then that top section opens into a tri-fold...

The middle part is a pocket
holding a double sided photo mat... the bottom pocket is for odds and ends I wanted to save plus a journaling tag...

it folds back and I have 
another place for addresses and journaling.

All of those pages now
flip to the left and I have a pocket and a photo mat. LOVE that Petaloo flower from Petaloo's Botanicas. 

Can't wait until their new 
spring colors of that collection are released.

The pocket contains a
double sided photo mat.

It's hard to see, but the
bow on the burlap string is fastened with a tiny safety pin by Spare Parts from Hobby Lobby.

Backside of the last page.
I used my Scallop Corner Chomper to make the tab, and the trees were cut with Alterations Mini Pine Tree die.

You can see here the five
additional signatures that need to be decorated.

Would love to know what
you think of my back flip mini so far.

OMGosh, the detail! What amazing detail, Linda! I LOVE it! Totally blows me away...I can't even hardly understand your description of the mechanics of the page. My approach to a mini album is just to slap on a photo and go! :)
