Good morning friends! I'm excited to share this adorable mini album with you. I gotta admit, I'm running low on die cuts and embellishments so I decided to get creative. I had a good amount of patterned paper in my stash so I thought I'd finally put my metal dies to good use...I made my own embellishments.

To begin, I grabbed some patterned paper from the Here and There and Journal Stories Collection. These collections go together perfectly! I ran some paper through my Sizzix with the metal dies to create a few embellishments that I may or may not use.

Then, I grabbed a few more papers and my mini album metal die to create the pages. :)

I put the papers in the order I wanted and then binded the mini album with a piece of string.

Now...the fun part! Adding the photos and embellishments to the pages. I had so much fun making this album for my son, Edward. He and his friend went to Hershey Park and few weeks ago and they had a blast!

Stamps are a great way to tell bits and pieces of your story. I used them throughout the entire album. 
You may not have noticed how I stamped the "to do" and "to see" sentiment all over the page in gray ink. I love how much it add to the page without over-doing it.

I added the journal card to the right side with a scalloped border die and then embellished the left side of the page using die cuts and a clear sticker.
I used some older stickers from my stash for this page! I love when I can put those unloved stickers to good use over time... 

More stamping and another journaling card. I am happy I was able to add all of these photos! They are small... about 1 1/2"x 1 1/2". 

I used larger photos for these two pages, cropped to fit within the pages. Then I added the "let's go" sticker and chipboard. Super simple!

I was running out of ideas by the last few pages...or just tired of working on it... :) but I managed to finish it...so that's a win. LOL.

And that's a wrap! I hope you found this mini album post interesting and inspiring!
