Hi friends! How are you? Today I am sharing my full mini album that I created using the new Gather Collection! I love making mini albums because it’s a smaller format (less intimidating because there’s less space to fill) and there’s a little more room for creative play than on a traditional scrapbook page. I use this time as a chance to create some pages that are just for fun and that don’t even have to have a photo on them. It’s a great way for me to combine my love of memory keeping with my love for simply being artistic and creative without any rules.
This album is a little bit bigger than many of my other mini albums. I wanted to be able to include some full 4×6 photos in this one so I created my front and back covers to be 5×7. I used thick raw chipboard that I cut to size and then covered them with paper and decorated with embellishments.
> pages I created with patterned paper at 5×7 (same as cover size)
> stand alone photos that I printed at 4×6 with a white border and adhered back to back
> clear acrylic pages that I cut to 4×6 and adhered transparent die cuts to
> smaller pages using ephemera, tags, etc
> envelope for extra photos
> page protector pages that I had in my stash from another mini album
