Hello everyone! Ilene here to share a mini album I created using the fun "#Forever Young" collection.
11th Birthday Mini Album by Ilene Tell
My daughter's 11th birthday will be in July, so this collection was perfect for a summery, pre-teen, tropical birthday party. And I was actually scrapping ahead! I decorated the cover with the gorgeous clock from the "Clockwork" wood shapes, and misted it pink. (The little chipboard piece is pointing at 11, of course :)
To make this album quick and easy, I simply cut out 12x7 pieces from the paper, and then folded them in half to create 7x6 pages - the BoBunny paper is nice and firm, and when folded in half creates very sturdy pages. I then added photo mats slightly larger than 4x3 size to fit the photos, and added embellishments (the photos will slide under the embellies, since I made sure that they were not glued down where the photo goes).
I also took three Misc Me 6x8 page protectors and trimmed them down to 6x6 - those will nicely fit 4x6 photos with a 2 inch strip at the bottom for decoration and possibly some journaling.
Even though this album was very quick and easy to put together, it will fit six 4x6 photos and 16 3x4 photos - so 20 photos total! Which will be perfect to commemorate such a wonderful occasion. (It doesn't hurt that my daughter really fell in love with this collection - it fits her so well :)
I also added one pocket page for memorabilia. I took one of the Kraft Misc Me envelopes and trimmed 2 inches off the bottom to fit the mini. Then, I hand-stitched the bottom closed.
Well, get ready for a bunch more pics... here's the rest of the mini:
