It's week 2 Mini Album
...and I didn't get as far as I would have liked on my Mini Album. I had some other crafty commitments to get done. But those are out of the way and I can get decorating. That's the fun part!
I did get to cut all my designer paper. This took some time especially since I had 52 cuts...well 54 including the cover and back.
As you are cutting be sure to trim all your extra pieces. Here I have a file folder to keep them all together for this project. These will come in handy when you get to layering your pages.
I used an old coffee tin for the scraps. It gives you an idea of how little waste there was once I trimmed and saved the big pieces!
I taped the top and bottom of each piece. One, this saves on tape (I went through a full roll) and two it allows me to tug tabs or ribbon through the openings if I want. I can always add glue if I want to seal the paper to the file folder page.
Keep your pages organized!
If there is a piece of DP that has something you want to show off be sure to use it fully on your page. This is my front cover..."52 Things I "LOVE" About You"
Here are all my pages together.
OK now I knew this could be an issue. Yep, too many pages! So I am going to cut them in half to 26 pages. It's still going to be big! But, now I have extra pages for another mini album or 2.
Stuff to embellish...
These are just a few ideas I will be using to embellish:)
