I recently came across a stash of photos from my daughter's 6th birthday party, and decided the best thing to do with them instead of creating multiple layouts was to make a mini album. I wanted the album to be bright and fun to reflect the theme of the party, so I used lots of colours and patterns.
The base of the album was created using 5x7 chevron print paper bags (red, light blue, yellow, lime and pink). I simply cut five pieces of chipboard (each measuring 5x6), slipped one inside each bag and taped the ends of the bags closed. Then I punched a hole in the corner of each and popped them onto a jump ring.
These are the items I used to embellish this project:
- washi tape
- glitter washi tape
- paper doilies
- assorted Journal Its
- Freckled Fawn paper clips
- Pinkfresh Studio Up in the Clouds foil die cuts
- flair buttons
And here is a closer look at how I used them all on the pages inside the album...
If you have never made a mini album before, I hope this post has inspired you to try making one yourself. (I highly recommend the use of paper bags as pages - it makes the process so easy! Check out the other colours and patterns available in store HERE)
Thanks for stopping by today, I will be back again tomorrow to share another project with you. Until then, happy scrapping!
