Summer Mini Album

So this is what we had for dinner last night and there are two boxes. 

 I cut the pages 6x6.

 Where the pictures are I found that I needed to sand it so that the glue would spread instead of pooling in one place.
 For the holes to bind it I measured in half and inch and up from the bottom and inch and down from the top an inch.
 I soon realized that my normal punch was not going to get the job done so I head to Hobby Lobby to see what I could come up with and my choice was a leather punch set and it works wonderfully and the price was right at $5.99.
 In this picture I am trying to show the detail of what I am calling my sand. I sanded the paper and sprayed with a mixture of re-inker and water.
 On the sun I stamped it twice in two different colors Creme Brulee and Goldrush and then ink distressed around the edges with sunset and on top with a sponge.
This is my finished, well almost finished, I just need to add the pictures and the embellishments on the pages.
The paper that I used is Footloose, Sweet Leaf, and Creme Brulee.
I hope you enjoy and make one of these for yourself! If you have any questions I am happy to answer them!

I will certainly post pictures of pages when I get them filled and finished.


  1. Nice job of explaining how you made the mini album. The pictures really help. I love to see things made out of recycled items! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Thank you so much! This is the first time I have shown how I made something. So it's encouraging to know I made it clear.
