I am sharing a Wallet Mini Album that I made to share for this hop.  I made a Halloween one in a class at my local craft store that has recently closed :(!  I am going to miss taking classes and visiting the store.  I hope you enjoy my mini album as much as I enjoyed making it.

The mini album measures 5 x 4 3/8.  The base of the mini album was made with just a 12 x 12 sheet of paper.  All the papers in this mini album was made from Kaisercraft paper 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 pad called Silent Night.  Here is the front of the album.  the sentiment is from the paper pad too, I fuzzy cut it out and added it to the front of the book.  The "joy" was from the pad too, I used a small circle punch to cut it out.


Here is the back of the album.  The sentiment also is from the paper pad.  I cut the closer out and added the brads and used a magnet to close the book.


This is the is the inside of the album, page 1 and 2.  I made two mats which can be used to journal or add pictures.  There are three inserts in the front and the back of the album.  The front window I cut out with the We Are Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board, the paper is from the paper pad.  I used some stampin up window sheets to make the pocket.


Page 3 and 4, added some design paper and added some mats for pictures.  The Merry Christmas is from the paper pack.


Page 5 and 6, the windows are also cut with the We Are Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board, the paper is from the paper pad.


Page 6 and 7, added some design paper and added some mats for pictures.  The Holly Jolly is from the paper pack.



Page 8 and 9, which are the last pages which are identical to pages 1 and 2.


Here are what the mats look like.
