With this month's kit I decided to make a  mini album. As I was putting the album together from scratch, I noticed it was getting chunkier and chunkier. By the time I was finished binding, adding all the paper and embellies, the spine ended up being 3.5 inches....lol!! Not exactly how I planned it in my head, but the end result is beautiful!
  
Every month has it own two pages. The right side houses the month and a small spot for a photo. For the left side I made a pocket to hold all the ephemera and tags from the cut-out sheet. The tags are tied together with seam binding and each hold a little charm. I placed a tiny paper clip to the long notecard to hold the calender. But for photo purposes I tucked the calender in the pocket.
