Hello Summer Mini Album

Hi friends.  Today I have a fun beach themed mini album to share that features the ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
As I've said before, RRR Ribbon Club Assortments are a GREAT addition to your mini album.  Nine coordinated ribbons in a variety of patterns and widths.  No thinking involved!  You can see another mini album I made with the May Ribbon Club assortment HERE.  You will be seeing a purple album soon!!

With our special offer, you can begin with the June and July assortments for a special introductory price.
Both the June and July assortments contain 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Along with the ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment, I added a piece of Champagne Netting to run down the spine of the book.  I thought it looked 'beachy' and I added a seahorse medallion on top of it.
The design of each page is the same and I just varied the design paper for interest.  Each page can hold 5 photos with the pull out tag on the top and there is room for journaling on the back of all the pull outs.
The photo below shows the tag that pulls out of the top of each page.
I added a cute beach themed die cut using several different dies from Cheery Lynn Designs on each pull out.  I've only glued the bottom and right side, so the photo can tuck under the shell die cut.  My shell, seahorse and sand dollar die cuts were cut out of paper I made using Distress Inks.
Another view of the open album.  This time I remembered to add the ribbon and netting to the spine before I added the page mechanism.  This way it's tucked under and looks much neater.
Here is a look at the pull-outs from each page.  There is another pull-out on the back of the page as well.

My pretty bi-color bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8" ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment.

I also added a small banner using the Champagne Netting on the front under the sentiment.  I found a pretty sand dollar charm to compliment the sand dollar die cuts at the bottom of the front cover.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a fabulous holiday weekend!
