Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog to share a mini album I created with one of the new acrylic albums! It's almost summer here in the US and that means many will be taking time out for vacations! Using the Acrylic 3x8 Wide Scallop Album, I created this fun mini to place in photos for our upcoming trip! There are six total pages that are arranged in a waterfall fashion and are the perfect size for wallet photos!
Before putting together my album, I removed the protective film on both sides from each page. Then using StazOn Opaque, I used a dabber to apply ink to the edges. This gives the acrylic a nice frosted look and helps set apart each page.
For most of my mini albums, I reserve the inside cover for journaling. Here, I layered two of the die cuts and secured with a staple before adhering to my page.
Each page increases in size but the height is no more than 3.5 inches! I used white cardstock in place of my photos and usually layer an additional print underneath. I also used pop dots to affix the border die cut at the bottom edge of my page. I then used bakers twine to tie around the outer edge.
For this page, I cut my piece 3.5 x 8 inches and scored at 5 inches. That way I could add a flap to add additional photos/embellishments. You can also place a photo on the outer cover if you wish; however I added more embellishments.
Here is the inside of the flap! I adhered a 2x3 place for my photo and plan on adding additional mourning on the inside flap.
When you are working on a smaller scale, sometimes using a border punch can go a long way on your page as well as adding smaller die cuts/stickers.
For this page, I fabricated a pocket by adhering on three sides of my paper. Then using a circle scallop punch, I folded each in half and stapled to my cardstock. You can add photos or again, additional journaling in this area.
Here are some additional photos of my album! Do you like to create mini albums to document your trips?
Thank you for stopping by! You can see the Acrylic and Chipboard Albums in the Clear Scraps shop! Have a great day!
