Hi crafty friends! Michelle here on the Hip Kits Blog today. I am happy to show you my minialbum with matching sleeve today. To create this I used the gorgeous Hip Kit 2022 January Kits.
First, I designed my mini album. For this I used the new metal dies from the January 2022 offer from Hip Kits. You can find the great nesting dies here (hexagonal) and here (round). I used both in my mini album. The big advantage of these dies is that I could easily choose a size to create the sleeve in the shape of a small purse later.
I created my mini album about a trip that we enjoyed a lot. For the cover I used the also metal dies from Hip Kit, you can find these gorgeous kaleidoscope metall dies right here. The heart I have cut out several times and then glued all the hearts on top of each other to get this beautiful three-dimensionality. The album is held together by a blue ribbon from my Stage.
For the album and also the sleeve I used the papers from the January 2022 Kit from Hip Kit. On every second album page, I created an insert where I alternately inserted round circle inlays or tags with small texts or photos on the back. On the opposite page I have each photo backed with colored paper and decorated with the beautiful embellishments included in the kit.
In between, I inserted transparent pages for which I used the overlays that are also part of the kit. I punched them out using the awesome metal dies in various sizes as well.
For a little more variety, I used the autumnal metal leaves dies from Hip Kit Ocober 2021 Kits, which you can find here, and a few more border punches from my Stage. I also like the black and white twine that I attached to the tags, as it provides a nice contrast.
After I finished designing my album, I turned my attention to the cover. I used as already said, for this simply again the same metal dies, in a larger size. A paper strip holds the two hexagons together, which is sized so that my mini album can be nicely inserted. I added a paper handle to the lid, so that now a nice bag look is created.
Thanks for stopping by here on the Hip Kit Club blog. I hope you enjoyed my inspiration and I wish you a great crafty Saturday.
I wish you a beautiful, creative Sunday! Thank you for stopping by.
