Laura here to share a little tutorial with you today!
While I was playing with the gorgeous Pumpkin Spice collection by Simple Stories, that I was given by ScrapMuch? for my latest DT Reveal, I could help but think "Mini Album" when I saw these papers...
So using two sheets of this particular patterned paper, as well as a bit more paper and some great Pumpkin Spice embellishments I set about creating a cute mini!
Have a look:
I started by choosing a section of this patterned paper for both the front and back of my mini and filed in other pages as I went along.
I tried to create a balance between photo mats and journaling areas.
I also embellished with die cuts, and stickers - popping up some for added dimension.
This mini and these papers are so perfect for anything fall, from pumpkin patches, to cozy sweater selfies, to chasing colours and coffee dates.
I had an extra bit of this pattern left over that I used to create this "fall" page. I trimmed it a little shorter for some extra impact. I like the varying sizes of the pages.
The page on the right had these great phrases printed on it, I used the second sheet of the same pattern to cut out every second word and pop dotted them over the same words on my original page.
I used a scrap of coordinating pattern paper to create tabs in my album.
A lot of the die cuts, were perfect matches to the pattered papers, both in size and colour so in a few instances I pop dotted the matching die cut over the pattern for impact.
How cutd is the inclusion of a pumpkin recipe!
I took every opportunity to layer elements, you know how much I love that right?!
This seemed like the perfect place to say good-bye!
Once I had my pages created, I punched holes in each page so that I could join them together to form my album.
I played around with the alignment a bit, even used a template to check each page, to ensure that I didn't punch through anything important.
I toyed with a few binding options, and considered jump rings.
But in the end I opted for some pretty fibers from my stash.
So glad you visited today!
