Mini Album using the September kits

Hi scrappy friends,

it’s Lisa back on the blog today sharing a mini album I made using the September kits.

When I looked through my September stuff to chose the items I was going to use for the album and also to get an idea of how I was going to make it, I was really inspired by two things. That scalloped chipboard frame from Pinkfresh studio (Embellishment Kit) and the word ‘September’ on one of the exclusive project life cards (Project Life Kit). I immediately saw how my cover was going to look 🙂

That project life card gave me the idea to use all the best photos from September and make a September memories album. So  I printed all the photos on my phone that I took in September (okay… not ALL the photos, but those that reminded me of cool and fun moments).

To see how big my album was going to be, I took the chipboard frame, placed it on a patterned paper and measured it, leaving some space all around the frame. Then I cut the paper for the cover following that size and I also cut all the papers ( Main Kit and Paper Kit) that I was going to use as pages.

For the cover I added 1cm of length because I wanted the album to have some thickness and I wanted to add eyelets.

So when everything was cut and the eyelets were on the cover, I took three elastics and I threaded them into the eyelets. Then I made piles of three pieces of patterned papers and I inserted them in the album using the elastics, like you would do with a TN insert.

Then I started decorating my pages using all the beautiful embellishments from the Main Kit, Embellishment Kit and Project Life Kit.

I especially loved using those mini alphas from Pinkfresh Studio. I used them to create my titles on every page, to make all the pages look coherent.

I matted very picture on some cardstock (Cardstock Kit) or on some patterned paper. I also used up all my enamel dots from the Pinkfresh Studio collection.

The Pinkfresh studio puffy stickers and die cuts were a great addition too.

One of my favorite items in the kits, were the Pinkfresh studio cardstock and chipboard frames. Those colors… 🙂 I tried to use them on different pages in my album.

I’m very happy with how many embellishments I was able to use in this album. Mini albums a great to use use up your stash or kill a kit. 🙂

If you want to see some of the process and more of the pages, you should go watch the video on my YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for stopping by
