Album Making Day 2

So are you ready for the next step?
 I have another set of pictures so you can follow along. Now if you missed yesterday's post - head back so you don't miss any steps.
I started by making a pocket for the back page. This is where the two inserts that hold the ring bounds pages will slide into.
Remember you can go to Kathy's Paper Phenomenon and get the supply list and measurements.
This is a picture of the pages that came in my kit and some of the papers also. Don't you love the punch she used to edge the pages? I will end up making these into a pocket after I have all the papers down.
I had to borrow my friend Wendy's Zutter Bind it all. This is how I put these pages together and attached the blue covered piece of chipboard. This piece of chipboard is what slips into the back pocket I made. I thought this was one of the smartest ideas to make a flip book and attach the pages.
Here is a view of the pages slipped in to the left side of the album
This last picture shows the right side slipped in to the pocket.
 If you have any questions please let me know.
I sure hope you attempt to make an album or something you haven't tried before. Remember is is good to step out of your comfort zone once an awhile and learn something new.
Thanks for visiting, make sure you stop back the next few days to see the next steps in making an album.
