Happy first week of Summer to my Northern Hemisphere crafty friends! Summer is easily my favorite season and it always seems that the time flies by. This year I decided to create a little mini album to capture some of the happy summer memories. The album is the first album I have created and it was so much fun…I know I will make more! Perhaps some of my family and friends will see a mini album in their future. (big smile!)
The mini album was not designed by me (I found the instructions on Pinterest) so I will provide a link to the album instruction at the end of this post. However, I can share photos of my take on the album…and I have many to share…so let’s start!
The front of the album with Suzanne Cannon’s lovely Summer die and bright and cheerful Graphic 45 papers:
The back of the album has Celebrate (because I think every summer day is a celebration of season):
The mini album is accordion style…so neat!
The album contains panels for photos or journaling.
Following the cheerful theme I used the “happy” die on the front inside panel:
“Remember” definitely had to be used on this wee album…
…as did “Memories” (so pretty!!)
The heart is elegant and happy (had to be added!)…
…and “Dream” (one of my favorite dies!) will be used with a photo of my sweet puppy sleeping…
Here are the outside panels…
…and the inside panels…
Oh – I so look forward to adding all my photos, journaling and embellishments to this cheerful album! (Can you tell I enjoyed making it?)
