Do you ever have a few memorable photos that you think deserve a special Album? Do you ever create or decorate Mini Albums? Mini Albums are perfect for showcasing little collections of photographs. Today I am sharing how to make a Small Polaroid Mini Album for four photos using Kaisercraft’s Rose Avenue Collection. I filmed the process for making this Album so you can see exactly how it came together.
Being a Mum of two precious boys I don’t have a lot of pink girly photographs in my personal collection or a lot of pink girly things in my home. Even though I am a girly-girl at heart, most of my photos have blue-t-shirts, caps, balls and boys toys in them. Luckily I do have friends that have little girls and I do happen to have some friends that are very talented at hosting amazing birthday parties.
When one of my friend’s said her little girl’s first birthday party was going to be a ballerina theme I did get a little bit excited. Especially as this particular friend is an amazing cook as well and I certainly wasn’t disappointed! The party was gorgeous and the food just blew me away. My friend hand-made everything (including the cake) and I took lots of photographs on the day of all the lovely pink, ballerina food. All of this meant that I had a collection of yummy pink party food photographs and I thought they deserved a special place in a Mini Album.
Rose Avenue Collection
The Rose Avenue Collection is perfect for scrapping those girly-girl photos. It is filled with Shabby Chic gorgeousness – roses, butterflies and lots of pretty pastel colours. For this Mini Album I chose to use Kaisercraft’s Small Polaroid Album. It is just the right design for whipping up a quick Mini Album to showcase four special photographs. I used one 12×12 Paper for this project and one page from the Paper Pad.
How I made the Album
To begin with I inked the chipboard album in Pink ink. Then I used paint and texture paste to paint over the top of the pink ink through this template to create a textured pattern on the chipboard album.I’m a big fan of swirls and flourishes…there is something that I love about them…and this new Template from Kaisercraft SWIRL FLOURISH is just divine.
I adhered my photographs onto 12×12 Paper WOOD PANELS and then it was just a simple matter of gluing the photo and the frame together.
Once the pages of the Album were assembled I was up to the decorating part. I used a variety of Mini Paper Blooms, Fussy-cut Roses, Wooden Flourishes, Flourish Die Cuts and Cheese Cloth scraps to decorate each page. Here is the Process Video that shows exactly how I made the Album:
This Mini Album will be the perfect gift for my friend….I hope she likes it : )
