Creating a Mini Album by Erica Thompson

Hey friends Erica back with you today to share a mini album using the March 2020 kits. I love to create handmade albums with a lot of pretty papers, texture and dimension.



I started out by picking some pattern papers from the March 2020 main kit. I had some scraps left from the Heidi Swapp cut apart sheet that comes in the kit so I started with that and then began cutting the rest of my pages.



Once I had all my papers trimmed down I ran them through my sewing machine to add some texture and interest to my pages. I also ran some of the paper through my die cutting machine using some shaped dies from my stash.



When I create my albums I like to add all my pages to a binder ring and embellish while they are on the ring. It is just the process I always use and it works for me. I printed out some photos from one of my senior sessions. I feel so sad for all of the seniors this year and I wanted to create something special for one of my clients. I love all of my sessions but this is one of my favorite senior sessions.



I printed some of my photos out in color and some in black & white. I layered the Paige Evan word Thickers on some of the photos and love how they turned out.



I love to use different shaped dies to create some of my pages. I love the interest it adds to the album. Using a lot of foam dimension and texture helps to create a nice chunky album.



Creating mini albums is a great way to use up what is left from your kits at the end of the month. They also make great gifts and I really just love creating them.



Here is a look at my album cover. I die cut one of the photos using a stitched circle and adhered to one of the Heidi Swapp cut aparts. I pulled an alpha set from the January 2020 embellishment kit. I thought this alpha just went with the feel of my album.



Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you feel inspired to create your own mini! Make sure to stop by the Hip Kit Club shop and check out all the fabulous kits. Have a wonderful day!
