My first Gatefold mini album.....

Hi everyone! I thought I'd share with you the mini album that I made yesterday. I tried my best to make a video to show you but for some reason I can't get it to load. Yes, I'm a newbie at you tube videos but I'm trying my best and still in the learning process of not only blogging but videoing as well now so just bare with me.
This is a gatefold album. I used 9" x 6" envelopes for it and have used 10 in total. I'll do a tutorial in the next post and will walk you through it as best I can with pictures. The paper I used was from K & Company and is the K-ology line. Plus I used Prima flowers, Tim Holtz metal embellishments and hitch for the closure as well as more K & Company embellishments.
This is what it looks like when you open it up. The pages alternate from the left to the right and intertwine. So in other words you open the left hand side page then the right hand side and so on and so forth.
This is what it looks like after opening the left hand side. You can see that the right hand side needs to be opened now to go further into the album. Also note that I didn't use the decorative border on any of the pages on the right hand side. I just left those plain so it would be easier to open up.
I'll walk you through these pages along with a short tutorial in my next post. But if you have ANY questions about any of it just leave me a comment and I'll be more than glad to help you in any way that I possibly can.
I haven't put ANY of the embellishments in this album yet cause I'm waiting til I print my pictures off from what I'll be taking this weekend at our family reunion. Plus I thought that it would be easier for you to see the basic structure if I showed it to you plain.
So stick around, the tutorial is on it's way....
