what? another post by me just two days after the last? why…yes! i thought i would give you guys a complete look at the two mini albums i just finished. this summer fun mini is already listed for sale; i hope to get the baby girl one listed later today!
let’s start with the summer fun mini first! here’s the front cover:
as you can see, the staggered scalloped front cover features a beachy underwater theme….there’s flowers, leaves, and starfish on a light blue and white background. The title of the album is “summer” which you can see by the epoxy embellishment across the green leaf. There is also some bling on the cover!
when you flip the front cover, this is what you see on the back:
this page features a green background with various “bubble” circles and two 3D fishies! one fish is green with light blue and the other one is peach with pink. both bodies have glitter!
this next page measures a bit longer than the first. (exact dimensions are posted in the listing on etsy!) it features a repeated pattern of a “starburst” flower. the outer edge of this page has the words FUN on it. There is bling on the “N”! this page can also hold two 2×3 photos!
this page features the same design as on the other side, but in orange and red colors! i handstamped a small chipboard heart with fired brick distress ink. this heart is sitting in the upper left corner. in the bottom right corner, there are a pair of floral flip flops! sooo cute! again, room for two 2×3 photos! and did i mention that i am including enough clear photo corners so that you don’t have to deal with messy glue?!
this scalloped page is the last one of the mini album. it has shades of blue and reminds me of a pool with bubbles! great place to put that 4×6 photo of your child in the pool or, again, two more 2×3’s! the epoxy embellishment in the upper left hand corner says “pool days”. there is a large white foam bracket on the right side. there are also some small light blu round epoxy embellishments surrounding the bracket.
the colorful back cover mimics the front cover, but has a lot more summer elements on it. although this mini only contains three staggered pages, there is plenty of room for you to add more. you can create these pages by using recycled cardboard, cover it with cardstock, and add your own photos and embellishments. or, convo me, and i will dirct you to where you can buy more pages!
finally, here’s another photo of the chipboard album showing you the colorful, textured ribbons that are tied onto the book rings.
i hope you liked this fun summer mini album! should you wish to purchase it, please visit my etsy shop. you will find it under the section entitled “mini albums”.
now, here is the second mini album i completed . it’s a baby girl mini album in a bracket shape. this is what it looks like:
sweet, right? the first page is covered with a muted shade of pink with large white polkadots. There is an oval embellishment that features the word “PRECIOUS” in a deep shade of pink. there are two flowers on other side of it with green bling in their centers. lying on her tummy under the word “PRECIOUS” is a whimsical baby girl. finally, the outer edges of this page have been hand detailed with over thirty pearls!
the flip side of this page features and repeats the word “Baby” in different fonts and styles. the background paper is a soft yellow. i have added a textured photo mat to hold a 2×2 or 2×3 photo. the edges of this mat were distressed with fired brick ink. at the top left corner of the photo are foam booties. they are white with pink ruffles….just sooo sweet….right down to the last details of tiny hot pink buttons! decorating the bottom of this mat is some wide textured ruffled yellow ribbon. finishing it off are two more buttons, one large soft pink flanked by a smaller hot pink button. this is what it looks like:
as you can see, the next page is covered with patterned paper featuring a bunch of different baby items…there’s baby bottles, safety pins, strollers, pacifiers, bibs, etc. they are all in assorted colors. in the middle of this page is another pink textured mat which was also hand inked with red brick distress ink. on either side of the mat are safety pins with bunny faces. one has a pink face, the other has a white face. underneath the mat, is a chipboard embellishment that says “smile” in a whimsical yellow font. the puter edge of this page has been finished with a fun yellow pom pom ribbon!
the back side of this page has a yellow background with one swirls. there is a “built-in” mat on the left side of this page with the words “Le Bebe” above it. underneath the mat, is the word “adored”. the word is brown and sits on a muted pink strip. there is a hot pink glittery star to the left of “adored”. on the right side is a multi-colored strip that features colors in pink and brown. there is a place for you to fill in the baby’s name and arrival date. there is a small glittery yellow flower to the left of “baby name”. there are also a cute set of foam pink shoes . this is what it looks like:
the last page, which is the longest (all page measurements are in etsy listing) features a pink, yellow, and orange cardstock. there is a large pink textured mat which will allow you to either attach a 4×6 photo or two 2×2’s or 2×3’s. attached to the bottom of this mat is a scalloped cream ribbon. to the right of the mat is a velvety textured swirl with a whimsical glittery pink heart sitting on it. in the upper left hand corner, there is a small orange heart. in the lower right hand corner of the mat, there is a baby bottle full of milk. here is that page:
the last page of this album features a muted pink cardstock with white footprints throughout it. this is what the back of the album looks like:
this mini album is bound by two silver book rings. each ring is decorated with a variety of colorful pink and yellow ribbons in all colors and textures.
while this mini is on the small side, you can just use it to showcase some of your best photos from a special ocassion or, on the other hand, you can add additional pages. if you are creative, you can add pages from recycled chipboard or cardboard and decorate it yourself. or, on the other hand, you can purchase additional pages from a scrapbook supplier. if you want to follow that route, please convo me, and i will direct you to a source.
hoep you enjoyed this album too! please visit my etsy shop to purchase either of these albums and/or handmade cards as well.
that’s it for now. happy friday everyone!
