"Our Creek" Mini Album by Ilene Tell
I always love working with BoBunny's mini albums - they are nice and big, and the pages are pre-printed with designs from the collection - so the main time-consuming tedious task of covering chipboard with paper is already done for you. And the paper is matte, not glossy, which is really nice too. Since the "Garden Journal" collection is very nature-themed, I thought it would work great for an album about our trips to the creek near us. Hence, the name of the album. The photos are from all different trips over the years.
To decorate the cover, I used some BoBunny flowers and laser-cut wooden embellishemt. I added the new gold rub-on letter - what an awesome effect! And the leaves I created by using the new stamp on green printed paper from the collection, and then cutting them out.
As you will see throughout the album, I also added dots using Chocolate Pearlescents around all the edges. Although it's a subtle look, I think it pulls the whole album together, giving the pages a more defined and uniform feel. It wouldn't be the same without it - and to cover each page only takes a couple minutes, so it's well worth the effort.
To embellish the mini, I used lots of daisy flowers of all colors, layered chipboard, and tons of Noteworthy die cuts to decorate as well as to write the dates. I love quotes, so I also added quotes I printed out about nature, trees, family, etc, all throughout.
Well... here goes the rest of the album!
