I have created a mini album using the beautiful 6×8 Seaside Shipwreck Collection pack. The Collection comes complete with papers and fabulous laser cuts that I used throughout the album. The smaller laser cuts were the perfect size for my 4×6 mini album. The cover has a shaker dome that I filled with some of the tiny laser cuts, beads, and silver microbeads. There is a crab, a starfish, and a seashell under the dome! I used an awesome camera die set to create my mini. It was the perfect size, and I was able to create a lot of pages with the 6×8 papers. The beautiful flowers are the Sugar Posies in Tutti Frutti. I used elements from the Underwater Layered Embellishment Set to tuck in spots on the rest of the cover.
Here is a closeup of the shaker dome I used on the cover. You can see the many pages which also have flipouts, and waterfall pages. There is a lot of room for small photos and journaling inside the mini. I had a lot of fun adorning many of the pages. I chose a coordinating base cardstock for each page, then topped them with the papers from collection pack.
I created the spine using the burlap and the Lacy Trim, and created a tassel by tying the 5 ply jute around the spine, tying a barrel knot on top, and taking apart the braided sections below the knot. I then strung beads and charms from each individual string. The back of the mini was adorned using elements from the Underwater Layered Embellishment Set. I absolutely adore the beachy theme of this mini.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you were inspired to create a mini album of your own. The smaller paper packs are perfect to create these types of projects.
