It's SCRAPBOOK SUNDAY and I thought I would share a post I did for October Afternoon's blog a couple weeks ago. So you may have seen this over there but it's been such a long time since I've had a mini book up on my blog that I thought I would put it up here as well. I forgot how much I love to make mini's!!
This album is all about a trip to Great America with my family and I figured a mini book was the perfect way to capture this day!
To create the cover I stamped black ink on kraft cardstock with the Summer roller stamp. I simply stamped over and over and over until I had an area that was 4"x6". I am using 4"x4" and 4"x6" photos in this album so I made the entire album 4"x6". After I cut the front cover I ran it through my sewing machine and added a puffy yellow star and a label for the title and date.
Inside the album I used a mix of Summertime patterned papers and 3"x3" memory cards for my journaling. Once everything was organized in the right order I used a hole punch and metal rings to hold everything together.
Below is the entire album and you can click on each photo to see a larger image.
For the last page I used my favorite photo from the day of my two brothers on the roller coaster X-Flight, and the same patterned paper I used on the inside of the front cover. The geotag that is stamped throughout the album is from the Summertime clear stamp set and I love the size of it!
Here is the back of the album. I used the same technique as I used for the front and then ran it through my sewing machine.
