Hi! Can't believe it's Wednesday already and it's been almost a week since I posted. Oops. sorry!! Seems like I can either spend a lot of time on the computer, or spend time creating. So, this past week was spent in my scraproom.:)
I have a mini album to share with you today. I've always stayed away from minis a) because I never felt like I had enough pictures to fill them and b) because I dont' have the patience for them! Well, I decided to take a stab at one and I'm so glad I did. I think I'm a mini-album convert now! I had about 45 pictures of Ryan's birthday party and wanted to do something with them.
Here's the result...
I used Teresa Collins' birthday line on here. I love how bright and fun it is. I also mixed in a bunch of Jenni Bowlin goodies, which go perfectly with it.
The little pom-poms are Glitz. I wasn't sure what to do with those when I got them, but I love how they look wrapped around the spine.
The inside pages are pretty simple. I let the photos take full page and embellished them accordingly. I once heard that you should have something to unify the pages on a mini, so I cut a row of of stars and placed it on each.
Since I had had too many pictures to place on the pages, I used the mini envelope die cuts as holders for photos. I trimmed the pictures down a bit and placed them in the envelopes. That way, we could pull them out and look at them. I'm definitely doing this trick again in the future!
All in all, this album came together so quickly and easily. And the best part? Ryan has had so much fun looking through it and remembering his special day!
So, now I'm trying to decide what I can make a mini of next!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. :)
