Pink and Black Mini - My First DT Project!

I am so excited to share my very first design team project with you all!!  I had so much fun creating this mini! I call it "Pink and Black".  And as you can see when you look at my pictures you will know why.  This is a 5 pocket page album, each of the pocket pages can hold a photo mat measuring 5 inches x 3 3/4 inches.   This months theme is animal prints and we are teaming up with Gina's Designs.  I have fallen in love with Gina's Designs!!  I have used the doilies and butterflies in this album, they are gorgeous!!  Please check out her online store!!

First picture up is the front cover of course!!The paper I used was the Pink Zebra Glitter Cardstock for the base.I then used some lace from my stash and used some flat back pearls in black, along with some flowers also from my stash.
I used some of the Diamond Dew Drops in black on the cardstock doily, the doily is from Gina's Designs, and they are so pretty!!  I also used from Gina's Designs a chipboard butterfly, these are gorgeous!!  I then softened everything up by using gesso.  I also inked all the edges with black chalk ink.

The next page is very simple.  I used the Pink Leopard Glitter Cardstock for the base.  I then used some black cardstock and embossed it as a photo mat.
Along the edge I used some white crochet lace and pink flat back pearls.  I made a flower with some pink and white twine.
 I also used gesso to make the embossing pop on the cardstock.

The next page is probably one of my favorites!!  I used the Black Glitter Zebra Print for the base.  I then used some pink cardstock to make a fold out photo wallet.
 I then used some black cardstock that I embossed again and used gesso to make it pop for the front and the mats on the inside.
 I used some white lace and black trim for the small flap.
 To keep it closed I used a metal piece  and I used another diamond dew drop in the center and I also used gesso to soften it up.

 I used some flowers from my stash, and another one of the butterflies from Gina's Designs which I also used gesso on.

The next page is very simple.  I used the Black and White Glitter Paw cardstock for the base on this one.  I then used some pink cardstock that I embossed and used black chalk ink on to pop the embossing.
 I then used some black trim and white flat back pearls along the side.  I also used some Black Dew Drops in two of the corners and placed some flowers in the bottom right corner.

The last page I am going to share today is also very simple.  I used the Pink Leopard Glitter print again for the base.  I them used some pink cardstock to make a pocket and punch a decorative boarder along one edge.
I then used a piece of the black and white zebra paper and some mini dew drops to decorate the pocket.  I them made a small tag out of black cardstock and embossed a small piece of pink cardstock which I adhered it to the tag.  I used some pink seam binding for the pull on the tag.
