Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a little mini album that I made with the December “Wonderland” kit. I was really inspired by the black and white elements in the kit. I had been meaning to do a little mini of our trip to NYC last December, and although I scrapped a few of the photo from my trips, I wanted to put more of them together in a little book.
I was trying to mimic a kind of traveler’s notebook, and though this Bella Blvd acetate sheet would make a great cover for the album.
For my inside pages, which I wanted to be white, I was thinking of using just plain printer paper, but it was too thin to stand up the embellishing I wanted to do. And white cardstock was too thick. While looking for some other papers, I had an “Ah-ha!” moment when I stumbled across a pack of plain white card envelopes. So my album pages are made from envelopes. I stitched down the envelope flaps (alternating the direction of the envelopes) and added the acetate cover on the front. On the small envelope flaps, I glued some of the 3×4 and 4×6 cards that are exclusive to this kit and backed them with paper.
For my pages, I kept it real simple. I added a few black splatters and some snips of patterned papers with phrases from the Pink Paislee Moonshine collection. I punched some circles from the Bella Blvd paper and used them to write the location. Finally, I added some black and white tabs to the edge of each page and my journaling as well.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Wonderland kit!
