Hey friends, Amber here on The Wild Hare Kits blog today to share with you a fun, stand alone mini album I created using my November kit. The kit I am working with this month is bright, colorful, and full of all of my favorite things! This made creating a fun and easy process.
To create the base of this album I began by wrapping and lining pieces of medium weight chipboard using some colorful Dear Lizzy papers. The pieces of chipboard used are as follows: two pieces that measured 4 by 4.5 inch (A) and two pieces that measured 4 by 3/4 inch (B). The pattern to wrap these pieces is A, B, B, A. To wrap my chipboard I used a piece of paper that measured 5.5 by 12 inches. To line my album I used a piece of paper that measured 3.75 by 10.5 inches. To allow this album to stand up on it’s own, simply fold the two smaller pieces of chipboard in the opposite direction as the larger pieces (inwards). This will give the album “legs” to stand up on.
For the pages of this mini, I used a cut-apart sheet from the “She’s Magic” collection by Dear Lizzy. In total, I used eight cards from this sheet, which gave my album sixteen pages when counting the backs of each one. I then added holes to the tops of each card and used those as a template to add holes to the base itself. For longevity, I added eyelets to the holes in the base of the album. To hold the album together I used small binder rings that measure 1 inch in diameter.
To decorate, I first added stitching to most of my elements. This adds a nice texture to the project. I then used the “She’s Magic” ephemera pack, the Pinkfresh Studio alphas, and the Freckled Fawn enamel dots to embellish all of my pages. I also added a tassel and wood veneer from my stash to the ring of the album for a bit more flare.
And with that, the album is ready for memories and photos! If you’d like to see an in-depth tutorial on a project like this that I created in the past, check out this link and follow along.
