Hello there, and welcome to the Elle’s Studio blog today! I was so excited to contribute a mini album to the Scrapbook and Cards Today winter issue this month, and the ‘Tis the Season collection made creating it so fun and easy! I’d love to share it with you.
Supplies | ‘Tis the Season- 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, ‘Tis the Season- 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, ‘Tis the Season Stamp, ‘Tis the Season – Double-sided Journaling Tags, ‘Tis the Season – Bits and Pieces, ‘Tis the Season – Puffy Stickers, ‘Tis the Season – Cutouts, Malia Alphabet Stamp, ‘Tis the Season – Frosted Acrylic Shapes, and Letter and Number Stickers- Light Pink.
I had several photos to document from a Christmas celebration with my daughter and Goddaughters last year, and this 6″ x 6″ chipboard mini was the perfect size for adding 3″ x 4″ photos with a bit of journaling and embellishments.
To simplify the process, I kept the same layout for each page, using a piece of the Tree Trimming grid paper to cover each bare page, a 2″ strip of patterned paper from the 6″ x 6″ paper stack at the inside edge, then a colorful manufacturers strip from the 12″ x 12″ paper collection to cover the seam.
By mixing up embellishments and journaling tags, I was able to make each page look different and bring variety to the album.
I really wanted the photos to shine in this mini album, and in addition to color, I also used black and white prints when the colors became too overwhelming with the product.
To add a bit of embellishment to the spine, I created a tassel with a bit of embroidery thread and some beads. The ‘Tis the Season acrylic present and star were also perfect for dangling from my binding with some bakers twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to remember the ‘Tis the Season collection when you’re documenting your recent holiday gatherings!
