It had been a while since I created a mini album (one of my favorite things to work with) and what better way to show off TONS of great embellishments?
I used the Maya Road Love Shipping Tag Coaster Album for the base.
I used the oval cut on the front as a frame for the title area and surrounded it with flowers, trims, and more. And I can never call a mini album complete without some fun stuff on the binding ring! I tied a lace bow and hung a coordinating tassel and metal leaf.
Each page spread coordinates with the opposite side... one of my tricks to keeping an album cohesive. I chose white, teal, yellow and kraft not only because it's one of my favorite color combos but because it's great for a non-gendered project. It looks great with the soft beach photos of my boy and girl.
I made use of both a plethora of embellishments like the banner, buttons, and metal arrow you see here and the paper itself, which I carefully cut to layer on top of the photo and ruffled and stitched for the end of the page.
See that "love"? I was able to use the Maya Road metal dies to cut felt! It's beautiful and adds such great texture to your projects. You can see bits of die cut felt all throughout this album.
I left one page without a photo because I couldn't resist fussy cutting the bird bracket and that yellow rose to pair with the resin frame, pleated velvet flower, bow, and lace trim leaves. So pretty! You can see another felt die cut, the doily, on the opposite page.
I absolutely adore how this mini album came together. I hope you've enjoyed it too!
