Scrappy Mini Album

Hi, everyone! Thank you for visiting with me today. 
I'm tickled to show you the mini I created last week. 


Picture Heavy

I used a Lori Whitlock Layered Mini Album file for my mini base.
Each of the layered pages were cut 4 times.
Twice in various pattern papers and twice in kraft cardstock.
Since I used DCWV My Sunshine Stack (love), the backs of those pages were solid white. I adhered each pattern paper to a kraft cardstock piece. This made the pages very sturdy, but also eliminated the whites on the back of the pattern pages. Not that there is anything wrong with white, but I wanted an overall kraft cardstock look to my mini. It went along with other elements I used that I'm about to tell you about.

Hello was die cut with my Silhouette using the ZP Rough & Tumble font from the Silhouette online store.

Jute for binding.

Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink for edging all the pages.
My Mind's Eye sticker packs for word stickers throughout mini.

Stars on BINGO cards page from Mrs. Grossman's.

You will also see some kraft library pockets throughout the mini interspersed among the layered mini pages. These are from a kit I purchased a couple of years ago. I think it's a SNAP collection.

Inside each library pocket I stuck in various Project Life cards. I had to trim the PL cards a little for them to fit in the pockets, but no real damage was done to the overall feel of the cards or messages that may have been printed on them. Photos can be added to these cards or journaling.

Miss Kate Cuttables, Smile Bundle used throughout with print and cuts.

Thanks for taking the time to read all the info and look at all the pages. I considered not posting every single page, but decided to do it because I know if I was visiting your blog and you were posting a mini album, I'd want to see everything inside it.


Enjoy the rest of your day.
:) Janis
