Fall is in the air, and rumor has it ...snow is right around the corner. Snuggle up with some hot chocolate, Starbucks or in my case- diet coke and enjoy another mini-album....
This week is about two of my favorite things... Family & Fall. The Family Traditions line from Webster's Pages is perfect to capture those moments. Our family loves to flip through the various mini-albums that are on the coffee table, when we gather at Thanksgiving. This project is super fast and very inexpensive. Create a 7 page (14 sided) mini album for around $15-including the album. You can complete it in less time than it takes to cook the Turkey.
2 pieces of "naked" chipboard have been cut to create a 6x6 mini album. This gave me 7 pages, plus one piece that I cut down to elevate the together element on the cover. The Family Traditions line had the perfect mix of Family & Fall elements, so it was great to use for this time of year.
I have a thing for tags & bags....there- I admitted it. They are often the perfect place to add another place for photos or journaling. I can't remember the last time that I created a project without one.
The embellishments shown are all cut from the paper elements that came in a variety of sizes.
This little porcupine guy was too cute not to use- plus it has the word Happy on it....who could resist.
The element on the back of the tag has been modified. Originally the design element said "my favorite purchase of the fall". By trimming out and adhering pumpkins in place of purchase, it totally works for a pumpkin page.
The fall flower was "fussy cut" and the Saturday & Sunday inserts are perfect for journaling spots that slide right into the bag.
The "love" circle is backed with the "sweet" circle. To enable the "love" circle to hang partially over the bag, only adhere adhesive on the top 1/2. Since sweet has adhesive on the whole tag, it stays secure and easily slides in and out of the bag/pocket.
WeR Memory Keepers washi tape had the perfect colors to complete the final pages. How fast and easy is that page!
Stop by and check out the album or this great line at the store. It is the perfect project to complete before Thanksgiving.
