A Little Mini

I am so glad it's Friday, Happy Friday everyone!! I am going out with some girlfriends in a little bit for Happy Hour and can't wait for some relaxation and a margarita. Before I go, I want to share this mini album I made using the My Cherry Pie papers from Nikki Sivils. This was the first time i've gotten my hands on some Nikki Sivils paper, I loved working with it!!


I cut 4x6 pieces of chipboard from a big 12x12 piece of it. I covered the pages with patterned paper using modge podge. I love that big Prima flower on front, so fun and dimensional!! I added some Basic Grey bling, Thickers and used my apron lace border punch.

The inside pages follow the same design plan. A photo of a family member on the left and journaling about that person on the right. I find it much easier to stick to a design plan with mini albums.





The design is pretty much the same. Photo on the left, journal box plus border with apron lace punch border plus more prima flowers on the right. Nice and simple!! The last page is one of all of us and the journaling is about the things we like to do as a family.


I am really happy with how this turned out!! I am really loving making mini albums right now. I like the smaller format and how you can complete something really special in a short period of time.

That's about it!! Hope you have something fun planned for this weekend...i'm off for my margarita and a little bit of girls time! Thanks for stopping by!
