Hello everyone! Today I have a fun mini album to share focusing on using flair! I love flair and have developed quite a stash that I tend to hoard. When we were asked to focus on flair this week, I wanted to do something that really highlighted my collection. I decided a mini album using flair to create the covers would be great as being on the covers would make the flair the star of the show.
I used plain brown chipboard from my stash to create a mini album just over 4.5" by 4.5". On the front and back, I also cut chipboard to layer and create a box for the flair to sit in. I painted the chipboard black and covered the box part of the cover with patterned paper. I then selected the flair I liked from my stash that matched the May kits and better yet, I'm pretty sure all of the flair I used are from Clique Kits past kits I've collected over the past year! All in all I ended up using 32 flair on the front and back covers and I just love how the it turned out!
The spine I left black as I wanted to keep the focus on the flair. In the picture above, the right side is the front cover and the left side is the back cover. I used just a single glue dot on the back of each flair to adhere them.
I then used the May kits to complete the inside of the mini album using the hidden hinge binding system. On the front and back covers I did bring in some pockets from Basic Grey that I had in my stash to store extra pictures but the remainder of the album was created with the kits.
In the picture below, I do have one last thing I want to complete and that is on the right side of the page. I have one of the binder clips from the TN kit holding a piece of vellum which you can see from my finger. I plan to type some journalling on that vellum with my typewriter but just have not had a chance to do that yet.
On the left side, I machine stitched three pieces of paper to create layered pockets to be able to store multiple photos. I actually have pictures on each side of the cards for a total of 6 photos in the pockets.
On another page I used a large brad to create a swivel effect to again be able to store multiple photos on one page. I saw Lisa Fonseca do that technique in a recent mini album she created and I thought it was brilliant and had to try it out on my mini album. I love the end result!
I hope you enjoyed my project this week. I sure loved making it! I will have a full process video up on my YouTube channel in the next week with full details on dimensions of the album and how I created the box for the flair on the covers so stay tuned to my channel as that will be coming soon!

And lastly, make sure to stop by the Clique Kits website and social media sites tomorrow for the full reveal of the June kits! You won't want to miss out on them! Until next time!
