Mini album with a little window

Hi friends! Today I share a new mini album using the gorgeous Marigold collection by Maggie Holmes.

This new line is so sweet and pretty, just like a fairy tale. The colors are amazing with a mixture of both pastels and bolds and I’m so in love with the beautiful floral patterns and the cute embellishments.

The first things that caught my eye in this collection were the adorable deer and pear tree embellishments. I just had to use them! These cute figures inspired me to create a forest scene into my mini album.

My idea was to create an easy accordion fold mini-album and adhere the houses, the pear tree, and some animals to the top of the pages. 

With that in mind, I created a cover in size 12,5x18 cm using a heavy cardstock base. I decided to cut a V-shaped window out from the front cover, and I covered the gap with a half-folded piece of transparent sheet. I scattered glitter and sequences between the transparent layers. I adore how the cute deer look through the little ‘window’.

Next, I trimmed down 4 pieces of patterned paper into 30x12 cm and folded them by 11 cm into three parts. I attached the folded papers with double-sided tape and created pockets and interactive pages to add more interest.

To embellish the pages, I used mostly flat stickers and ephemera pieces to avoid getting the album too bulky. I love the fact that Marigold collection has a bunch of cut-apart sheets with tags and journaling cards. They make it super easy to add handwritten journaling to my album.  

I hope you liked my first project with Marigold collection, I can’t wait to share more with you! Thanks for stopping by!
