Making things to sell...

Hi Everyone :) As the title says I am making things to sell. I have started a 6 x 6 mini album. Not sure how many pages to put in it. It has 5 double sided pages right now. Each page also has a large side loading tag and a fold out page on each side.

So far I have added papers to one whole page of the album plus the tag. I also made another tag pocket for one of the fold out pages that has two tags in it, one in each direction. I just need to add a few photo mats, some stamping and some embellies.

Four more to go plus covers. As things stand I have no idea where I will sell it or how much to charge lmao. But in order to sell things I need to have things made to sell!

Any way here are a couple of pics so u can see how it's going! I made all of the pages plus side tags in a couple of hours tonight as well as started decorating the first pages :) I decided to be more orderly and create all the pages first. Then paper them, then decorate in order to try and be faster lol... I had the paper stack picked I was going to use all ready to go :)

First page closed.

 First page opened with tags pulled out so you can see where they go.

 Back of first page closed with tag still out lol

Back of first page fully opened.

As I said It still needs decorating, but I have four more pages like that made up ready to paper and decorate :) All in all not bad for one night. Especially as this is my first ever mini :) And I am making it all from scratch ... Holy cow lol...

The binding edge has 6 layers of cardstock plus a piece of plastic to reinforce it and make sure the book rings stay put! As I want to sell this once it is done I figured I best try to make it sturdy! lol. Each page is made from two A4 sheets of white 160gsm cardstock. The pages are 6.5" (1/2" for binding) x 6".

So let me know what you think... Will post more pics as they are done :). Trying to work out what other things I can incorporate into the pages. Thinking maybe a large pocket across the bottom of one of the main pages.

Thanks for Looking
Happy Scrappin'
