Hi there! I am here to kick of another week of minialbums! This week we will show you different ways that we used the beautiful products that came in the March kit called Sketchbook. The kit was packed with a nice suble color palette. I knew right away that I wanted to use the newborn photos I had taken of my nephew for a minibook.
For this mini I used a pocketed page protector with 3 pockets for 6x4" photos and 3 smaller pockets where you could write any data that you´d like to have with your photo had you used the page protector in a regular photo album.
Trying to take photos of plastics are so hard, but I hope that you can see what I am ttrying to show you ;)
Here is a photo of the finished album. As you perhaps can see, I have folded the page protector like an accordion album, so you´d see each page and then you´d turn it to see the backside.
Here is a look at one side. It has the title page and two more pages. I loved working with the muted colors in the kit they fitted perfectly with the light photos. I turned all my photos into polaroids using the frame option at Picmonkey.com and I printed them a bit smaller, so that I could have the cardstock matting them.
The woodgrain alpha stickers were so beautiful and I used a V since his name is Viggo. And Elle´s studio always makes the cutes journaling spots. I punched hearts from a few of the patterned papers that came with the kit.
I used my scalloped circle punch to use some of the patterned papers easily on each page and the tiny word stickers were one of my favorite in the kit and they were perfect for this project!
Here is the back of the album, so the mini has a total of 6 pages.
I had so much fun doing this mini....so I made another one!
As you can see I used the same photo on the cover and actually throughout the mini. But I changed the color palett to blue.
I might like the look of this one even better! The aqua and yellow patterned paper in the kit is yummy! I think that by using pieces of the patterned paper like this is a nice way to add them to a project without having them taking over. And obviously you can cram more pages/projects from a sheet like this ;)
This is the back of the mini.
These minialbums are going to be gifts and I can´t wait to give them away!
Thank you so much to Cocoa Daisy for providing this beautiful kit for me to play with!
