This past weekend I was invited to teach a half day workshop at Scrap en Oc. Thank you, ladies! It was important to them to complete the project during class time, so I proposed a simple 5" x 7" mini album using Claudine Hellmouth's foam stamps and some elements from Basic Grey's Curio collection (I seriously love the colors!).
Process : Like for most of my workshops, I created a few printable elements for class participants to use. For this project I made the tag on the cover and the journaling spots with frames to accomodate the Curio Element Stickers (seen in the above photo).
Repeat. Repaet. Repeat. Repetition is my go-to time saver. Every layout is exactly the same with only the colors and embellishments changing. Another reason I like to repeat the layout is because it gives my mini book unity. I like it looking all the same.
Theme : I love looking back at photos of me and my boys at their birth. I like relfecting on the tenderness and fragility of that time in our lives. The newness, the possibility, the fears. The HORMONES. I like the idea of having these photos and thoughts gathered in one little book.
What's your method for making mini books? Do you change up each layout or keep them all the same?
