Hello there! Caroli here and today I want to share with you a very special mini album I made using the beautiful April kit Origins, featuring Life in Color collection by Simple Stories.
As you may know, I just had a baby boy last March, and before he was born me and my family had a photo shoot just to document my pregnancy and our family of 3, before it became a family of 4.
This photo shoot was something I really wanted to do; on my first pregnancy I didn’t care too much about taking pics of myself and now I regret I don’t have any decent pic of me while waiting for my baby girl 😦 So, I am really happy we got to have these pics taken. Of course I wanted to scrap them properly, and what better than the beautiful papers and embellishments of April kit!
I used this Tolsby photo frame by Ikea I ‘ve been hoarding for months waiting for a special project. This was perfect because I can use many of the thousand of pics we had taken and also because its format allows it to be displayed in a shelve of my living room, so anyone who comes to visit us can take a look and see how huge I was, LOL!
For the cover I used this gorgeous leaves wreath, an exclusive cutfile of this April kit, I love it and want to use it everywhere! I also used a piece of the white hearts Clear Cuts by Bella Blvd., I think it’s a great accent for a mini album cover.
These are the pages of the mini; as you can see, I used almost all the patterned papers and embellishments of the kit, love the color combination. I also used some leaves from the exclusive cutfiles of the kit.
Something I love and often make on my mini albums is including some kind of journaling text on most of the pages, specially over the pictures. In this mini I used the alpha by Bella Blvd. included on the kit to add some text on my pages and complement it with the clear stickers by Simple Stories, included on the kit as well.
I hope you like the idea of this mini album, it makes a great decorative element for your home and also documents in a beautiful and creative way some special moment or event of our lives.
Thank you for your visit, have a lovely day!
