Away We Go To The Beach – Mini-Album
Regular readers will know I take a lot of beach photos. I had some printed out that I’d decided not to use on 12×12 layouts, but I still wanted to scrapbook them. So, as I was in a summery scrapping mood, I’ve made a mini album to display them:
I made the pages by cutting 5 pieces of Echo Park Everyday Eclectic paper down to 5″ wide – then rounded off the top edges of the papers using a bowl as a template:
And I cut the height of the pages down so that they increase in size – the front cover is 6″ tall, the first page is 7″, the second page is 8⅛”, the third 9¼“, the last page is 10⅜” tall:
And then I decorated the album with more Everyday Eclectic bits, a little machine stitching using white and gold thread, a Papermania Brad Making Kit, buttons and gems from my stash, plus some of these epoxies which have been sitting in my stash for too long:
They went well with the theme:
The photos were various sizes and orientations, but I managed to cut them all down to 4×4″ square to give continuity to the album:
I love making mini albums at the moment – I have them all on display in a basket in my dining room, for visitors to peruse!
Have you got any photos printed out and lurking in storage that you could use in a mini-album? Don’t forget you can link up mini-albums to my Scrapbooking Soiree, as well as layouts!
