Locker Room – A Teeny Tiny Mini!



Hello again!  It’s Melissa and I’m back today to share my second project (and a tutorial) with the gorgeous November Kit “Tapestry”!   A couple of years ago I was at a local church fair, and on the of the stalls was selling second hand goodies.  I couldn’t believe how blessed I was to find a little gold photo album that was only $1!  After two years of waiting for the perfect photos, I decided to use it to document apart of a road trip we took in July (our Winter).  We stopped off at a special place called Moeraki, it’s a beach and it has these amazing naturally formed boulders that are scatted on the beach and into the sea.

Here is my tiny album, and my very simple embellished cover.  I just used a piece of the Cedar Lane 6×6 paper and one of the exclusive printables, which I made into an epoxy flair.

Of course I have to show you how chunky it is!!

Here is a tutorial on how my mini came together with the amazing November Kit and add-ons.

  1. Gather your supplies – this is super easy because the kit is fully coordinated, and perfect!
  2. Prep3Select your photos.  I made a collage on so that my photos would be small enough for the album.
  3. Prep1Make a template with a piece of white cardstock, then hand-cut around the template (because my pages were so small I didn’t want to be measuring and cutting on my trimmer).
  4. Prep4Select a paper to use for journaling and filler pages.  I used the ledger paper from the main kit.
  5. IMG_4430Place all of papers and photos into the album in the order you want them.  This sets you up for quick and easy embellishing and journalling.
  6. IMG_4429Embellish and journal and the album is compete!  Below is my inside title page, which I kept very simple.  The doily is from my stash, and the mist is Heidi Swapp Colour Shine (in gold and seafoam).

Here is the same spread from step 5 above, but completed with embellishment and journaling.

Nov Mini5I’m so happy to have this day recorded.  My 18 month old keeps wanting to look at the “book”, she seems to think it belongs to her!  To see the entire album you can watch my walkthrough video below.

Thanks so much for looking, I really appreciate it!
