Mini Album from 12x12 Cut Apart Paper

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Here's my first project for the Scrappin in the City Design Team! I've been wanting to make a mini album out of those 12x12 cut apart sheets... so I finally did!

front cover mini album

I used 2 sheets from Alison Kreft's "Sprinkled with Love" collection. I love the colors in the collection... the last resort we stayed at in Jamaica was decorated in black, white, turquoise, pink, and yellow. 

I cut 2 strips out of the 12x12 cut apart papers and staggered them so I would have more "pages" in my mini album.

I used washi tape on the edges to help disguise where the papers overlapped and to add a decorative edge.

Here's one side of the album all spread out:

pages on front side - beach, sunset, watersports,

I listed our favorite things about Jamaica... the beach, music, food, water sports, and sunsets.

beach days

sunset, "this is my happy" sticker

You know I had to include some enamel dots!

 sunglasses stickers, sailing, water sports, bob marley

And the back side all spread out:

all back side pages

One Love honeymoon

Most of the "pages" didn't need too much embellishing... just a few stickers here and there.

great food and relaxing music

relax in the cabana, listen to music

Hope this post inspired you to use up some of those 12x12 cut apart pages you have in your stash!
