Alice in Wonderland Haunted House mini album...

 Hey everyone! I know, I know...your wondering why in the world would I make another Halloween album when I barely had enough pictures to put in the first one...BUT. I had bought this Graphic 45 paper this year and couldn't stand it...I just had to use it. So I figured that each year I can sit the little album out and in many years to come I can put my grandbabies pictures in it. The front of the album is actually 3D but it's not showing up in the pictures for some reason. Alice is 3D and all glittered as well as the little pumpkin and the keyhole is completely covered in glossy accents and then of course there is the metal key in the upper corner. I also have tabs that pull out from each corner. Oh by the way this is an exploding box along the same lines as the envelope exploding box but there wasn't a store bought envelope one used in this album.
 Here is one of the side views of the little house. I used Martha Stewarts iron gate fence. This fence is actually purple but is showing up blue for some reason.
 Here is another side. All 3 sides are the same with different tags tucked behind the fence.
 When you open it of course you can see all of it but I thought I'd take you through each "layer". The first layer are all doors to mimick the doors that Alice encountered in the movie. The little playing card is moveable so you can place a picture up behind it. I used keyhole brads on each door as well.
 Then when you open the doors there is a pocket on the back side of the door with a tag and a mat on the opposite page with another moveable small tag in the upper corner.
 Here is the second "layer". Now for this layer I used the smaller black paper bags that you can get at Michaels. I tucked a tag inside and added a big pretty rhinestone brad and at the bottom of each bag there is a name plate where you can actually tuck another tag. Sorry I forgot to put my shipping tags behind there so that I could show you.
 Then here is the 3rd and last layer. This is the only envelope that is in the album. I actually used my envelope template and some cardstock to make them. and then I added tags and key brads to the tab tops.
Then POOF here is what it looks like when the roof is taken off the top. I added a big nice flower and a little mouse. I like to add my finishing embellishments once my pictures are in my albums so that's why it's a bit on the plain side. But I do hope that this inspires you all in some way.
I'm hoping that everyone is having a good weekend and I'll be seeing you soon....come on back ya'll!
