I have been paper crafting for a while, but hardly ever do any layouts. I think I only do them when I am at a workshop etc. I am still organizing my pictures (it's been years in progress, I am the worlds biggest procrastinator). A few years back however I tried my luck on a mini album. I love the format and the way it is more decoration, even without pictures. So far I have only made them as gifts. But I am hoping to do some for myself this year. But I still have ideas on a few that I am trying to do as gifts as well.
Here are a few pictures of an early mini I made for a friend of mine.
Well, can you guess what her name is. The cover had her name on, I covered chipboard letters with paper. I paper was from my stash. It is an older paper pack. But I love the natural earth tones.
She is such a sweet lady, and just adores her hubby. When I saw that paper I just had to include it in the mini, and added the "my husband" stamp (from CTMH).
The cake stamp is also from CTMH, and I used prisma pencils to color it it. I made my own tags and tried to distress them. I think I used the distress inks. But it is to long ago to remember it for sure. I even added a few ribbons, something I still have a hard time remembering to add to my cards, minis etc. I am not very frilly so adding ribbons and flowers I have to try to make sure I add them.
Here I added a few more tags for family pictures and journals about her family.
I did make my own pages by cutting up some recycled packaging I think. Now I have this nice stash of purchased chipboard album, I however still like to add extra pages in between by making my own. One can never have to many pages in a mini. They really should be called "chunky mini's"
There where more pages in this mini, but these where the nicest once. Well more soon.
Thank you for visiting me in my little corner.
