Memories from the Attic Mini Album Challenge
Did I mention that we are having a Mini Album Challenge at Memories from the Attic? Well, we are, and at the end of the month the winner of the challenge will receive an awesome prize- a soooo pretty 8 x 8 album from SEI. So stop by the Attic and join in the fun. We have some other DT challenges and an ATC swap going on (yes, i'm extending the deadline!). I hope I see some new faces there!
Here is the mini album I made to hopefully inspire the girls doing the challenge. That works out well, because I am also selling it at my ETSY store, Dreamer's Boutique. I actually was hoping to have it ready sooner, since it is a perfect Father's Day gift, being that the title is "best dad" It's a 6 x 6 post bound mini with 8 quality cream colored pages. I covered the front with patterned paper and painted the edge with Lumiere's Pearl White paint. I heard about Lumiere's from a Split Coast Stamper's challenge and tutorial, and I love it! It has such a beautiful, shiny consistency. I can't wait to play with it some more! But I digress.....lol. Back to my mini - I used chipboard, metallic and felt embellishments on the cover and all through the book. I covered each right hand page with patterned paper and embellishments. There are frames for pictures and places for journaling. The last page has a cardstock "frame" with a tag that slides behind it for more journaling. I guess I could quit explaining and show you!
See how you can slide your dad's, stepdad's, or grandfather's pic behind the frame, and it will peek through the front cover. That part made me happy!
The next page has a frame to slide your dad's pic behind and a cute little journaling spot. I love the green Prima flower!
I love the cute litte journaling tag "from A to Z" on this page, too.
And of course dad's photo can be put under the crown! How fitting!
Here is another page with lots of room for a photo of dad.
Wow, there are lots of pages in here. It is taking longer to post the pics than to make the album!
Here's the next(a crown again): And the next (I like this one!):
And finally we come to the last page, and the back inside cover with a die cut from Cosmo Cricket. This last page has the journaling tag tucked underneath the photo frame.
I hope you like my mini book for Dad. Sorry for the long post, but I hope you enjoyed the pics! Thanks for looking!
