“Big things often have small beginnings” Mini Album

I really enjoy making Mini Albums and  6″ x  6″ is my size of choice.  Clear Scraps 6″ x 6″ Chipboard Album is a great place to start.  I love how sturdy the pages are and that the edges are already distressed for me.

Clear Scraps 6 x 6 purple album

My album was made using the regular  6″ x 6″ chipboard album.

When I make my mini albums I like to trim around my pages with an exacto knife and then sand the edges for a smooth finish.  A standard 1/4″ office hole punch works to punch out the holes once you’ve covered them up with the scrapbook paper.

The paper used on this album is Kaisercraft’s Violet Crush Collection.  The flower on the front is from Petaloo.

Round Clear Tag works wonderful as an added embellishment.  I glued  left over scrapbook paper to the tag and went around the edges with a Silver Leaf pen.  I easily punched a hole on the top of the album to tie on the tag.

More Creative Love from Kaisercraft’s “Now Boarding”

My first design team assignment with The Paper Forest was to use the

“Now Boarding” Collection from Kaisercraft.

This collection has a great selection of travel images.

I made a quick and easy card, which I turned into a anniversary card.

I also made this accordion album with flaps, pockets and plenty of room

for journaling.

In the collection of 12 x 12 papers is a page with six 4″ x 6″ images.

I cut this page in 1/2 vertically, used a small strip of coordinating paper to

join the two strips to make my accordion base.  I then went to town making

flips and pockets.  The front and back of the book is covered chipboard.

I really loved working with this collection.

Very vintage inspired, yet modern.  (is that possible?)
