Today we are here with another digital kit. This time it is Just Jaimee's Raine kit. Filled with so many goodies. And such lovely colors. And all sorts of possibilities. One of which might be unexpected.
Last week I was looking back through old mini month galleries and found this awesome mini by Moon Ko. I thought it would make a lovely gift for a friend that I have who is expecting a baby. I loved the cloud papers in Jaimee's kit and thought they would be perfect for this baby book. I love how it turned out. All that I ended up using was the papers and one embellishment.
I also bought a font, Bonjour, that came with a watercolor style sheet. It was a fabulous addition allowing me to having variegated letters and numbers.
I have probably made as many mini's for gifts as I have for myself. Some with photos. Some without. No matter digital or physical, I build minis like this exactly the same way. One element at a time times 12 pages. Here, I first "cut" all the patterned papers. Then I placed the writing on each page. Then I worked to create an order that was logical to me, and then I completed the details of the months. I think that is why I love to create minis with a pattern to them. I love the repetition of it all. And using bits and pieces from only one kit limits my choices making me more effective with my time, and helping me to actually get finished.
Have you made any gift minis lately? Do tell!
