Mini Album Project – Choose Happy!

Choose Happy!

Choose Happy!

Hi Everyone!  I thought I would share one of the projects I completed last week on my craft retreat. I haven’t been doing much scrapbooking beyond Project Life and I haven’t made a mini album in a very long time. So this was a really fun project to create. I bought the base for this mini album at  Joann’s a long time ago on clearance. So I gathered it and added some paper from my 6×6 paper packs. The one I used most of was from My Mind’s Eye ‘ Indie Chic – Nutmeg’.  I am on an aqua kick right now so I kept the palette to aqua and a few other colors. I even painted the mini close pins to match.

I also used some sticker elements from Echo Park’s ‘For the Record’.

I also used one of my girlfriend’s Stampin Up stamps to create the little hearts you see in there.

I love all the little pockets and the bicycle is so stinkin’ cute.

The colors are a mixture of serene from the blue and muted browns to pure energy from the golden yellow colors.

I also used doilies for added dimension.

I can’t wait to put some photos in those little “Polaroid frames.

One of my favorite elements are the wooden man and woman. I just love them.

I didn’t realize there were so many pages in this little book.

Can’t wait to put something in that glassine envelope.

I am thinking of using only black and white photos so as not to compete with the color scheme.

I will share more projects in the days to come so do stop by soon.

Have a blessed day!
