Making minis

September 22, 2010

The “BER” season is here and it means Christmas is just around the corner. So today we are here sharing with you 2 mini albums using the Stocking Garland.

Kerryn : I love the new Kaisercraft Stocking Garland but really lack a suitable place to display it.  When I had another look at it though, I realised it would make a great mini album.  I have taken out one of the stockings so that it wasn’t too thick for the album rings and have only used a cuff on the front and back of the album.

The Be Merry collection was perfect for these photos of my daughter’s first Christmas.

I kept the embellishments to a minimum and have included plenty of journalling.

Mini albums are a great way of capturing those precious memories that enables you to use lots of photos to tell the story.

LG: Like Kerryn, I thought that the Stocking Garland would make a perfect Mini Album for some photos that my family took last Christmas. Our christmas color theme was almost the same colour as the ‘Tis the Season line so I decided to work with that.

I just love the vintage feel of the ‘Tis the Season collection. I added a lot of crackle paint on this project to add texture.

Here are the inside pages of my mini album:
