Everyday Life Mini Album/Nicole Martel

Hello, friends! I have an adorable mini album to share with you today. My sister just had her baby and pictures taken so I put together this simple, but beautiful mini album for her!

To begin, I printed several photos and cropped them to measure 4"x4". Then, I cut a variety of patterned paper to measure 4 1/2"x4 4/2". Next, I selected the embellishments I wanted to use from a variety of collections. 

I mounted the photos to the pages and then I used my Cinch to bind the pages together. I decided to use a 1" coil, rather than a smaller coil because I knew that by the time I finished this adorable mini, it would be a little bulky from the embellishments.

I covered two pieces of chipboard with patterned paper for the front and back cover of the album so that the outer layer isn't too flimsy.

Next, the fun part! Adding all of the beautiful embellishments to the album. This was my favorite part. It's always fun, playing with the embellishments in my stash! I tried to use things I've had for awhile...stash busting. All of the products are still available in the shop except for the die cuts.

I kept this album pretty simple, keeping the focus on the adorable photos. I think I added just the right amount of embellishments, without overdoing it.

You will notice, I follow the same design/format throughout the album. Embellishments on the left side of the album with the picture on the right side with a small amount of embellishments here and there to add dimension.

I love playing with chipboard frames. They are great embellishments. I used a few here with the chipboard sentiment layered. This was a happy mistake! I smudged ink on the photo and needed to cover it!

You may have seen my previous post on how I created this cute tag from the Never Grow Up stamp set. If not, click here to see how I made the tags in this mini! I told you they were going to be used in my next project. :)

I used foam squares to adhere the chipboard onto the photo and then cut the arrow from the chipboard frame.

Love the pop of green on this spread with the touch of pink! Isn't this the cutest picture you ever saw?!

Here's the cover. I used clear transparent stickers with a chipboard piece to complete the cover. Super simple. 

Thank you so much for visiting today!
