Hello Pebbles Friends! It’s Leanne here today and I am excited to share with you a “special moment’s” mini album, expressing the little details that make me feel so blessed. This mini album is really a gift for the whole family. It lets them see how much I cherish them and the moments we have together. The new Woodland Forest collection has helped me bring my ideas to fruition with all the warmth of an autumnal colour palette.
I really love mini albums that have lots of interesting details that hint at what’s to come once the pages are turned. The Woodland Forest Ephemera Die-cuts are perfect for creating this look where bits and pieces overlap and layer throughout the album.
But before I start creating the pages, I needed to determine the size and shape of my mini.
The main aim of my album is for it to be made up with random snapshots, using all those extra photos that don’t necessarily make it into pocket pages or onto scrapbooking layouts. But… the ones that still have special significance, just not those needed to help tell a story I’ve previously documented. I have more than a few stacks of these pre-printed photos, which of course have been printed out at different sizes.
But this is where the fun part begins! A 4.25”x4.25” cardstock base provides enough room to house all these odd dimensions.
The cover was embellished by creating a 4”x4” frame, cut from patterned paper in the Woodland Forest mini 6”x6” paper pad and mounted on foam tape. The bow was made using the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. I’ve also included the cute bunny die-cut ephemera piece, alongside fussy cut flowers.
The jump rings were added to the side of the album at the 1” and 3” marks.
The pages inside the mini album have been created using the Harvest Dies and then trimmed, keeping the recipe tab intact. Each page has then had a photo attached and embellishments built up around the image.
Here’s a look inside the completed album:
As you can see, each photo, regardless of size, has been embellished simply with coordinating paper, stickers and die-cut ephemera from the Woodland Forest collection. My excess photos now have a home among my growing collection of mini albums instead of floating loosely about my scrap space!
Surely, I’m not the only one who has extra photos printed out each time there’s temptation to create a new project!! And hopefully now I will be able to contain my extra snapshots with some semblance of cute organisation!
