Hello everyone! Today I have for you a step by step tutorial. You will see how I made lovely mini album with photos of me and my boyfriend (perfect for Valentine’s Day!) When I first saw February “Hot Mess” Kit, I knew that I have to make a mini! There are sooo many cut outs, tags, journaling cards to use, that I didn’t hesitate. Also, I reeeaaaally like Maggie Holmes paper with the calendar, perfect to include it in the mini too!
OK, let’s start 🙂 Here are the things I used to make the mini.
First of all, I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist and an ink to make some splashes on some cards.
Then it’s time to have fun! Before decorating, remember to PUNCH cards. I really often forget about it and when the page is done, it turns out that some embellies or dots or even a photo is placed where the whole should be.
The mini is really simple. There aren’t many embellishments but still it is full of goodies 🙂
If photos are in color I often try to take 2-3 colors from them and decorate photos in those colors to make the page more consistent.
And this is how the whole album looks like! Hope you like it 🙂 Tell me in comments what you think! (This is a .gif file and it might take a while to start working)
And some close-ups if you’re not bored 😉
Thank you so much for being here with me, you rock if you came to the end! 😀
