It is spring cleaning around here and I have found the dreaded pile of photos that never made it into albums. Tell me you have a drawer, box, or bag that you still need to get into albums?! I was very willing to get summer photos out to get me excited for the warmer months. Heidi Swapp’s newest collection Pineapple Crush will fill your heart with sunshine when using it! I created a 2nd birthday mini book for my daughter.
She saw me with her photos and grabbed them and ran to sit and look through the pile by herself. She laughed and could recognize everyone in the photos. That was such a sweet moment because when actually turned 2 she wouldn’t have been able to do that. I created a simple book by folding papers in half with different lengths so that the patterns would still peak through. To create the closer I used seam binding sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine and then glued the ends under a Mini Message on the top of the book. Both ends wrap around and tie on the side.
I took my favorite photos from the day and compiled them with very little trimming to my 4×6 photos. I then decorated all the pages with the Ephemera. There is so much to choose from in that package!
The Glitter Alphas and Washi Tape add that touch of sparkle and foil.
I made sure to get mom and dad in the book! Sometimes we forget to add the most important people in our children’s scrapbook. They will treasure these photos most of all.
On the next page you can really see the tiers start. With such fun patterns in this paper, why not show them off?!
I always have way too many photos for an event and this interactive flap was the perfect way to add more to the mini book.
To create this little interactive flip book I just used the scraps and folded the top over slightly and then glued each layer to the next.
Instantly, I could crop photos and add the journaling on the inside of the flaps!
If you have a lot of favorite photos from an event, why not create a simple mini book! All you need is paper, a stapler, and a bit of glue… oh, and the cute Pineapple Crush collection!
