Have you seen the new Stationery selection at Michaels yet! Its filled with box sets of cards of all shapes, colors and sizes, Embellishment kits and Buzz Word stickers! I wanted to use the cards and envelopes in a fun new way so I came up with this cute little mini album.
Now be e sure to read the whole post as not only do I share my whole album but I share a quick tutorial on putting the album together at the end of my post!
What I love most of all is that the cards, envelopes and Embellishment Packs can be mix and matched to create any combination you choose. I wanted to go bright on this mini album as you will see below!
My front cover uses the Pink YAY card, its the perfect cover for any mini album don’t you think!
I added some of the glitter stickers from the Embellishment Kit for my subtitle!
The card opens with a 4×4 photo. I used pattern paper from my stash to cover the inside of the card then used one of the Tropical Instax Filler cards on the left. I added some of the stickers from Yellow Buzz words to embellish the card.
On my photo I added more of the Buzz word stickers from the Pink set and layered over some words from the Instax Filler kit. I adhered the yellow hello from the Buzz words sandwiched between my photo and pattern paper. To remove the sticky backing I pressed it into my clothing several times. This works a treat.
The next card the 3×4 So Glad You Exist card was so cute to use in my mini album.
I adhered more pattern paper from my stash then clipped on my photo. On the left I used another of the Instax Filler cards for my journalling. I ran it through my We R Memory Keepers typewriter I then added one of the Epoxy Stickers from the Embellishment kit.
The Hello Sunshine card was added into my mini albumin at a horizontal angle. I then adhered an Instax tag from a previous collection followed by my 3×4 photo.
I typed my journalling onto another of the Instax Filler card and added more stickers from the Pink Buzz words!
I had adhered the Dynamite card to the front of the Black and White card then stapled on one of the cards from the Deck Of Days collection on the front of the card. I added a few of the stickers from the Embellishment Kit.
The card opens with a 4 x 4 card on three sides to create a pocket. I adhered that thanks from the Pink Buzz Words set layered with more glitter stickers from the Embellishment kit.
Another Instax Filler card is used for the hidden journalling.
Next I used the Bright Side tag from the Embellishment Kit for another hidden photo and tag. I had previously adhered the black and white card closed on the bottom and right sides to form a pocket.
I added my photo with a decorative paper clip from my stash.
I ran the tag through my We R Memory Keepers Typewriter for the journalling.
Another tag from the Embellishment Kit was adhered as a page into the mini album. I layered my photo with one of the stickers from the Embellishment kit.
Next I added my typed journaling on the Instax tag.
I slipped a 4×4 photo into the 3×4 envelope.
My final page ends with a photo clipped onto the Mint envelope. I added more stickers from the Embellishment kit to embellish.
Let me share how easily it was to put my Mini Album together.
I started with these cards, Envelopes, Envelope liners, the Yellow Embellishment Kit and Pink and Yellow Buzz stickers.
I started by adhering the black and white card closed at the bottom and right hand side to form a pocket.
I then adhered the Dynamite card to the front of this card.
I added the glitter Liner into the Pink 3×4 envelope.
Next I assembled all my pieces together to see the layout of my mini album.
I scored each of the pieces about a quarter of an inch from the left hand side to help each page turn.
I then added double sided tape to the scored section of each piece.
I then adhered the front of each card to the back of the previous card….
until all the cards were in place.
To complete I added some washi from my stash to hide all the pieces.
I love how my mini came together. It holds some very precious and important memories. I cant wait to create another using more cards and envelopes from the collection.
