Hello everyone!! Today I have another fun mini album to share with you!! I used the brand new Simple Stories Say Cheese 4 collection for this mini. It measures 7” by 10” with a 2.75” spine. I wanted this mini album to be fairly large so it can store TONS of photos!! I did use a hinge binding system with pocket pages. You can find a tutorial HERE from My Sister’s Scrapper. All you have to do is adjust the measurements to your liking.
Onto the mini album!!! I used lots of different Say Cheese 4 products with this collection!! The first, and probably my favorite right now is the large word dies!!! I have spread many throughout the album!! They are also very fun to use on cards!! Another favorite for this collection was the kids “bits and pieces”!! I really wanted this album to focus on children so this product was a must!! And lastly (besides loving it all), I love the coordinating solid cardstock to match the collection!! How awesome is that!!
Both the inside covers have pockets on them to store additional photos or memorabilia. I have put a handful of photomats inside of various sizes. All the pocket pages have the same large tag you pull out from the top. Another great place for extra photos and journaling.
I get asked this question lots…how do I put my photos in if elements are covering part of the photomat?? Super easy!! I don’t put adhesive down on any part that touches the photomat. That way I can easily slide in a photo. This also makes it easy if you are giving a mini album as a gift.
Lots of fun little frames and ephemera are tucked away behind larger elements. This makes a fun interactive book. Make sure to check out my Instagram page for a full walk through of this album so you can see exactly what I am talking about!!
You can see I used more of those large word dies!! To give some extra dimension, I did cut them out in two different shades and offset them to give a “shadow” look.
I hope you enjoyed this magical mini album and found some inspiration to create something of your own!! Have a wonderful day!!
