Hello everyone, It's Cari here! I'm so happy to be here and to finally be able to show my mini! As you may know, I worked with an amazing Dear Lizzy pack that American Crafts sent me. So for this mini album I used paper from Serendipity and embellishment from Fine and Dandy, even though there are two different collection is amazing how incredible well they match, you will see in my mini, you couldn't even tell they are from different collection!
So let's the fun begin! The mini I made is for my b-day party and the photos I have with the 27 balloons I got for that day. I Try to recreate this balloons in the cover with the numbers stickers I got from AC.
Once I'm making a mini album I alway try to not to use a million photos, because I know for experience that I will never end that mini. I try just to pick just my favorite photos of date/event and work with that.
I love to include pockets to add some messages, my album start with a pocket and a photo of my holding the balloons.
I always include different sizes of papers on my mini albums, I think it give it a funky and more joyful design.
The journaling is always the hardest part for me. In this mini I added a quote. Quotes has been working perfect for me lately, then I add some extra thought that that very same quote, this has helped me to be able to write a little longer.
When I make a mini album I try to make it according to the feels I had at the moment of the photos were taken, and I really feel the spirit of my party was well expressed with this mini and the collection I use.
I hope you like this mini! I really enjoy making mini albums and I specially love this one.
