Mini Album Inspiration with Pretty Little Studio

Happy Thursday crafty peeps!  I've got a fun Pretty Little Studio project to share with you today.

Do you like to create mini albums?  I always love to make them and sometimes I need a tiny bit of inspiration to get started.  Are you like that too?

The starting inspiration for my project today was a ticket shaped die.  If you don't have one of these, you could also easily use 4x6 sized pages with a 3.5 x 5.5 layer on them for a similar layered feel.
How to begin?  I take all of my coordinating packages and lay them all out in front of me.  I look at my base papers and colors and find elements that will be great to repeat in the album.  
You'll see that I used the Nature Trail Note Strips for my cover.  I also used the Picture Cards to echo the same style through the album.
I've used the top packing sheet of the 6x6 paper pack for my cover.
I've also used the Vintage Die Cuts and Paper Feather Die Cuts on a few pages as well. Repeating similar elements keeps the feel cohesive. Some sequins and a touch of bling helped finish the album cover nicely.

Small holes were punched and I tied some thin waxed string to bind the book and curled the ends.
