I Do...A Mini Album

I have a happy little mini album to share created with 
Bella Blvd's new "Love & Marriage" Collection.
A mini album is the perfect palette for small, favorite photos. 
But don't forget the journaling!
 Just Write Journaling Stickers aren't just for scrapbook pages, so think
 of them when preparing your album pages, even if you need to trim them down a bit.
 For this album I used a very inexpensive chipboard 'flower' shaped album found at Michael's.

After tracing and trimming out the papers to fit the flower shape, 
I then reached for the perfect sized jar lid for the inset of each page.
 If you have a large enough template or circle cutter, you may wish to use that instead. 

Because this is a flip-up style album, I had to plan carefully of how to arrange each page's embellishments. Too many thick areas can cause the pages not to lay right.

 After dressing each page I went back and added a border of baker's twine around 
the edge of each page. I love the way it hides the uneveness of the cuts made to the paper,
 as well as the plain, grey chipboard. For this, I've found that a ballpoint tip glue pen works best!

  Finally, I added a large ring to the top and tied on a simple satin ribbon.

Love And Marriage: Vows, Smokeys In Love, Cake Tasting, May Eighteenth, 
Cute Cuts, Turner Ballroom, Esther Fleming Floral, Alpha+Bits Stickers,
Just Write Journaling Stickers, Chipboard Icons; 

Engaged At Last: Engagement Chipboard Icons; Designer Tape: Yellow Chevron,

 See more projects on the blog!
Have a great week ahead!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
