DS Paper Mini Pocket Scrapbook

Finished this little cutie today, had most of it done about a week ago, but needed a final touch. The base is made with one sheet of DS paper folded in half and then folded accordion fold into four sections. The cover section has a piece of Pink Piroutte embossed and matted onto chocolate chip cardstock and then trimmed with primas and leaves die cuts.
This is what the inside looks like with the pockets made in each section by folding the paper in various ways or in the case of the second pocket simply punching out a half circle. Each section also has some embellishments to dress it up. I am so going to miss this DS paper when it retires.I will have to stock up on it for sure. I am so glad there is a sale on DS paper this month so I can stock up and save at the same time.

The first tag pulls out from the side and is on Riding Hood Red cardstock with Pink Pirouette accents. The stamped images are in Chocolate chip ink. Below is the back of the first tag and I have included place for journalling here.

The second tag pull out from the top. It also has a place for journalling on the back.

The back of the second tag....

The third tag is cute because I used the top note die, but also because I found a retired stamp that looks very similar to the leaves die . It really helps pull the imagery together throughout this mini scrapbook.

And of course a spot for journalling on the back of this tag. It appears as though the top note has been wrapped around the tag, but it has not. I actually had two scrap pieces from a previous project and put one on the front and the other on the back.

Here is the final tag for the book.

...and the back with one last spot for journal writing.

This was such a fun little project and is a great way to use of those bits of left over paper that builds up quickly.
