Sunshine on my mind minialbum

Hello everybody, thanks for stopping by today! I have a new mini album to share. This mini album is all about my favorite moments at the beautiful Mediterranean Sea from last year. I’m an absolutely ‘summer type’ girl, and feel like this collection is just made for me! The beautiful bright colors and the lovely summer-themed embellishments go hand-in-hand!

Check out this short & sweet process video so you can see how this mini album came together:

The album is a 4.5″x6″ size which I constructed using patterned papers. To create the spine of the album I used a simple accordion fold to attach all of my pages to, and made it stronger using plastic sheet and ribbon.

I wanted to keep my album playful and interactive, so I trimmed my pages in different sizes, and added a lot of tiny extra pages to the main pages.

My plan was to put one photo on each page and place my journaling behind the photo using a journaling tag. To do this, I turned all pages into a pocket by folding the papers in half and machine-stitched them around. I used these paper pockets as main pages for my album.

The pages above are some of my favorites in this album. I love the combination of the Sunkissed and Apple patterned paper, so I fussy cut some flowers and adhered them to the blue background. I also used a 3x4″ piece of the Apple paper to create a journaling tag and placed into the page pocket.

I love getting our photos off the computer and into something that can be touched and flipped through!  I hope you are inspired to document your memories into a mini album. Thanks for stopping by!
