Hi friend.  A sweet mini album is the perfect way to document your summer photos and memories.  Using the subscriber free cut files, I have created an adorable book with lots of texture and interest.

There is a beautiful selection of cut files designs for  July – they are FREE to download if you subscribe to the Hip Kits!  I used the seashells and Pineapple designs for my album, but there are so many more to choose from.


I cut each shape using the Cardstock Kit and then a selection of pattern papers to back each cut file with.  If you ‘release’ or breakapart the cut file elements, you can use the outer cut line, to cut each shape very quickly.

I love lots of texture and interest, so layering up the die-cuts from the July Main kit and those incredible vellum leaves in the July Embellishment kit were a must!

There are so many pretty elements in the kits to layer.  I used the cards from the Pocket Life kit on the inside, plus those layered stickers in the main kit!  WOW – they are gorgeous!

I had so much fun embellishing this book!

The photos are only small – 3×4″ but the book is a pefect size for leaving out and reliving your memories.

I hope that I have inspired you to create a little album for your summer memories.
