Hello everyone! Kerstin here with a Mini Album inspiration feat. the new ESSENTIAL SUMMER 2023 collection! My heart immediately won the ESSENTIAL SUMMER 2023 paper 05! This soft blue with the pears - I'm in love! This collection has everything you want to capture summer memories! Stamps, Stickers, Die Cuts, Seals, Alphabet Stickers ... I'll stop now and start! 

The idea is, I want to fill a TN journal this summer and wanted to have everything at hand. In this mini album I can store what I need! 

The size of the cover is 5 x 8 1/2 inches and the spine has a width of 2 inches. I covered the front and back with my absolute favorite Paper 05 from the Essential Summer 2023 collection. For the spine I chose the Paper-03 Essential Summer 2023. To add a little accent to the cover I made a frame. For this I cut the frame 4x from white cardstock and once from the design paper. I glued everything together with liquid glue and stuck it on the cover. I made my title with the cute yellow Alphabet Stickers by gluing the stickers directly to 2mm Foam and cutting them out. The Ephemera are from the Essential Summer 2023 Die Cut Paper

And here you see what I meant - having everything at hand! In the middle I have attached a storage for the journal and this and that. For the storage, I cut cardstock to 5 x 4 3/4 inches and added a diagonal. You can see it in the photo. I used the lovely Essential Summer 2023 01 Paper for this. 

On the left side, I first glued on my closure (2 bands). I cut white cardstock, dabbed with water-mixed stamping ink and then stamped. For this I used the Stamp Set #171 SUPER COOL. I think it fits perfectly with summer memories. I also absolutely had to use one of the awesome Summer Stories Transparent Stickers

On the right side I made two slide-in pockets to be able to put this and that in and take it with me. And of course I had to - who knows me? - Essential Summer 2023 3D Sticker Dots use. 

I already have a few journaling cards prepared from the Essential Summer 2023 Journaling Cards

I hope you like this idea as much as I do! I'm even more excited for summer now and can't wait to get started with my journal!

Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

Kerstin xx
