Hi beautiful Simple Stories friends, Cristina here with a new project I made with a brand new collection I love the most, I Am. I am totally in love with this collection and especially for this new edition full of my favorite colors but also with unusual combinations but so well matched that it is impossible not to fall in love with.

I decided to use this wonderful collection to make a mini album, 4x6" size, because I would be able to use as much as possible all the decorative elements and embellishments of which this collection is full. I chose to make a mini album to send a gift to a dear friend who asked me to use her photos of her recent trip to the States and so I did.

I chose a very easy way to make my project, without a front cover and with a ring binder to support the pages. 

I alternated the pages of patterned paper with page protectors of various sizes to adapt photos of different sizes.

To make my album more sturdy I made a back cover using a chipboard sheet that I covered with two patterned papers by the 6x8 “ pad which was perfectly suited for its vertical size.

I chose to sew some embellishments to give movement and added various elements as chipboard and brads wherever possible.

The designs are very original, versatile and perfectly chromatically balanced with each other.

I love to use so many layers and foam double tape to add 3d effects because I think this helps to focalize attention on the picture.

I’m a pink addicted and therefore if you are also you cannot fail to add this collection to your stash and we can’t wait to see how many beautiful projects you’re going to make with it.

So please don’t forget to leave us a comment below and tell us which is your own idea on how to use this collection, maybe so different than mine.

Thank you so much for joining me today and see you to the next post.
