Summer Breeze – mini albums

December 15, 2010

The bright and beachy Seaside collection makes me long for summer, even more so at the moment since it is Winter in Sweden and there’s a lot of snow. But I grabbed some photos from our vacation in early August and made a fun mini album to remember the warmer days!

“Västkusten” by Camilla Ekman: Long Ticket Album (SB2060); Papers – Seaside collection: Coastline (P595), Sea Breeze (P594); Die Cut Elements – Seaside (DC330); Rubons – Seaside (RB886); Embellishment Pack – Seaside (EM941); Journal Tags – Seaside (JT610); Embellishment Pack – Seaside (EM942); Island Lagoon Flourish (RS459); Crochet Doilie (Em946); Flowers – snow (F601); Flowers – taupe (F603); Flowers – baby blue (F614); Pearls – yellow (SB797); Rhinestones – Island Lagoon (RS402); Pearls – Copper (SB790); Grosgain Ribbon – ocean (RI609); Clear Stamps – Dated (CS724); Album Rings – Dark Brown (M019)

Kirsty has also created a quick and easy album for her children to look through, using a single sheet of carstock and the gorgeous summery Seaside collection!

“The photos in the album were taken at the last beach holiday we had with my mum, so they are especially precious, and the children are forever asking to look through them. Now they have a special little album that they can flick through whenever they like :)”

“Holiday” Mini Album by Kirsty Piper: Seaside- Coastline (P595), 6′ Paper Pad (PP834), Embellishment Pack Canvas Tags(EM942), Embellishment Pack Tickets (EM941), Rub ons Black(RB885), Chipboard Alphabet #1(CB107)

The pages inside the album are of all different shapes and sizes, encouraging the reader to turn to the next page by giving them a tantalizing glimpse of what comes next.

One of the pages in the little album is actually an envelope, which allows for extra photographs, or in this case, some hidden journaling.

Kirsty says “I just love this collection, it is absolutely perfect for scrapping precious summer memories…and my all time favourite feature of this collection? The fact that the Escape Patterned Paper(P593) is made up using some gorgeous Aussie beach names!”
