Of course I had to make a cute tassel to hand from the cover.
I learned how to put together the folding pages at Paige’s Virtual Mini Album Class. With Paige’s technique, you design both sides of the mini and here’s a look at the front and back of mine.
After a knee surgery, I couldn’t get up to my craft room for 2.5 months and really missed it. It’s not just having access to all the fun product, it’s also about the vibe I’ve curated. I like to use vintage dishes and cabinets to store useful tools and tapes right at hand. It might look busy, but I know exactly where everything is.
On my Ikea shelving, it’s all about the little things. Treasures from friends, things I pick up while traveling and finished projects. I’ve used the next fold in my mini to highlight all the cute stuff.
On the left page, I decorated one of the Journal Tags in the collection. It’s tucked into a sequin boarder.
I printed the photos as a collage, small enough to add two.
On the opposite page, I’ve made a photo waterfall to save some larger photos with even more room for journaling. It ties closed with a ribbon taped around the back. Oh look, this page is swarming with butterflies!My Happy Place story continues on the flip side of the mini. Starting with a hand stitched Globe cut file by Paige Evans. It about connecting with sweet friends around the world who also love to scrapbook. I love this supportive and creative community. The next fold is a little gallery of my favourite layouts made with Paige’s collections. It was hard to choose. I made the images, 2″x2″ to line up with the Mini Paper Pad images stitched on my sewing machine. Finally on the last fold, another cut file by Paige, I Love Scrapbooking. After paper-backing it, I sliced it in half before adding it to allow for the fold. For all the product information used here, visit my Gallery at Scrapbook.com and for those of you that enjoy a flip-thru, here’s my YouTube video.
Thanks so much for your visit. Cheers, Kelly
