Mini Album | Erin Sweeney

8 x 8 | materials patterned paper (Basic Grey) + ribbon, letter stickers (American Crafts) + border punch (Fiskars)

A Note From Erin
Instead of "It always comes up", I’ve titled this album “The stories that always come up.” Similar, I know. Each individual page will be titled based on whom or what the stories are about. This will be a great way to get down all the stories that you don’t necessarily need an entire layout to tell, ones that you do not have pictures for or those where you might be a bit fuzzy on the details. I’m planning on pages devoted to vacations, childhood, Sweeney family (stories that always come up when I’m with my in-laws), school-related, stories about my ancestors and more. This can easily be added to as more stories are remembered.

I’m keeping the album simple, and the design is based on my “It always comes up” layout. All the pages will consist of strips of patterned paper, a border punch and sometimes ribbon. A great way to use scraps! The uniform design will keep the focus on the stories and will make it easy to add to later.
