Good morning friends! Have you ever had a moment when a certain theme or paper collection reminded you of a story you haven't told yet? Art and creativity runs in our family for at least four generations and I never thought of recording that story until I met this beautiful paper line by Simple Stories called Hey Crafty Girl.
Since there were a number of people I wanted to mention in this story, a mini book seemed like the perfect solution. I picked a decorative label shape as the base for the mini book and cut ten pieces from white cardstock. Then, I cut out twenty more pieces from patterned paper that were a bit smaller to cover all the pages.
For the front cover I cut a circle from one of the cards in the collection with the word “create,” which also served as a title for my book. I decorated the cover with another die cut piece, a few chipboard pieces and scattered enamel dots.
Most of the photos in this mini album measure about 2x3” and I printed them at home with a white border. I will be adding journaling to the tags and pieces that open like a card (behind the 3x4” elements).
I love decorating smaller format pages! As always, bits and pieces and some stickers make this step pretty easy. It was such a fun little mini book to create and I hope you will take a closer look at this beautiful collection if you haven't done so yet!
