Welcome to the Big Top! Mini Album - Club Scrap Blog Hop

Welcome welcome!  Today is the Club Scrap Blog Hop for October 2015 and have we got a show for you....  This month's kit - Big Top  pays homage to the Circus!  Bright, bold colors, fun patterns and lots of fun packed into a single kit.  Who could ask for anything more?

Well this month I decided to see just how much I could pack into a single mini album.  I wanted an album that could hold an entire experience at the circus or other fun activity that deserves the same fun filled dedicated album.

Blooming Pages Mini Album
(just what I'm calling it...)

I left the front cover a bit plain so the recipient could add the desired title.

and inside the pages are a bit special - 
initially they look like any other page in a mini album...

and it opens up to this...

and there is a fold down flap

that opens to reveal 2 additional spaces to add photos and journaling.

Once it's all folded up, the back page can also be embellished!

Here is another fully opened up set of pages.
Each set of pages blooms (opens up) and has eight (8) - 6" x 6" 
spaces to hold photos, journaling and memorabilia.

All in all the album has 5 of these blooming pages.
Luckily there were 5 printed tabs included in the kit which I added to each set of pages.

This is just another view of a couple more sets of pages.
Tomorrow I'll be sharing the cut and folds for each set of pages 
so you can make your own Blooming Pages Album.

Now it's time to hop on over to Deb's page to see what Big Top creation she has in store for you!

Also, if you get lost along the way the complete list of hoppers can be found here:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Dearest Birthday Girl,
    I love your album! The design is so clever and allows for so many different applications! I have been looking for a new album design and once again, you had the perfect design.

    I also hope you had a happy birthday! Please forgive me for not sending you a Kathy original as I had planned, but you know the health issues that hold me back. The one thing that never stops is how grateful I am for our continued friendship. I hope that you had or will have a special day to kick up your heals and celebrate you. You are so loved by so many. The world is a brighter and more creative place with your willingness to share your many gifts, Roni. I continue to hold you in my prayers and surround you with my love! Kathy Jones
