Do you share a love of mini albums? The thing that really floats my boat about mini albums is the instant gratification. I love my 12X12 albums – don’t get me wrong, but they are an eve- evolving long term project where I know I can crank out a mini album in one sitting. I also think they make the best gifts for those special people in our lives. A mini album is one gift that is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. The gift of memories is absolutely priceless.
The cards from the stack pack are perfect for the pages in your mini album . When you double the cards back to back they really make a nice sturdy page. Start out by selecting six different sheets of the pre-scored cards, fold each in half along the score line. For a larger album you can add more pages, it’s up to you.
On this mini album Shelley used the new Accomplished Collection. Feel free to substitute your favorite collection.
Using a high-tack adhesive, apply a strip along each side of the card. You will have a pocket with the opening at the top. Perfect for some fun tags or extra photos.
Shelley die-cut a couple of prints from the 6X6 Paper Bundle & layered them onto the cover page. The reverse side of the Accomplished Components Die-Cuts have a pretty plaid design, so she used it as the backdrop for the sentiment sticker. A few buttons from Petaloo were added at the top with glue dots.
If you plan on using brads or hand-stitching, you might want to do this before adhering the sides of the card together or to the mat itself before attaching.
Cork is also a nice neutral embellishment & a great way to add some additional texture. These arrow stickers were a must to go along with the sticker sentiment on this page.
The tags slide easily down into the openings of the cards.
