Hi everyone! Recently, I watched a Live with Prima class where Frank Garcia and Jodie Lee Patterson shared making a mini album from a 12x12 sheet of paper. It looked easy enough, so I decided to give it a try. This is my first attempt at a mini album, so I see the flaws. Looking back, I know I could have done a bit better with it. Anyhoo, here it is.
I wasn't sure how to photograph it as it was difficult to get it to lie flat. Everything I used is from Tim Holtz. Washi tape was placed over the spine with some twine and a charm tied around for decoration. I also used Industrious Stickers and Thrift Shop Ephemera to decorate the front and back covers. A bit of Stickles was added to the butterfly.
Inside, quite a bit of stamping was done. I cut journaling cards from the Crowded Attic papers and inked the edges. I stamped images onto each one and a quotation onto the backs. Unfortunately, I didn't photograph those. I used various remnant rubs, clips, stickers and ephemera to decorate the insides. I was sending this to a friend and didn't want it too bulky for mailing.
Well, there you have it. I hope to try making another mini with more embellishing. It's difficult to stay away from flowers and bling!
Have a wonderful week! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and for all your sweet comments.
