Give Thanks Mini Album with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to respond to an amazing amount of requests for a tutorial on the mini album I created for Halloween on our YouTube channel. Of course I decided to recreate the album in a Fall theme as it’s getting so close to Thanksgiving.

I’m using the Gracious collection from Authentique Papers for this mini and I just love the warm rich colors, the paper patterns, and the gorgeous vintage images.

The trims and flowers all come from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I think they coordinate perfectly.

The journal cut aparts on the 12 x 12 papers are a great size for tip ins.

Remember to add some neutral paper to the backs so you’ll have room to add your journaling!

This mini has 2 sets of full page tip ins. Not only does this increase the real estate of the book but leaves room to add pretty photo mats and elements from the die cut sheet.

This set of pages has two die cuts frames topped with coordinating paper and die cut flowers and leaves.

Loving this combo of autumnal papers with fruits and gourds.

I used the same pretty wine colored cardstock as matting through for a cohesive look.

These pages have much larger photo mats and simple layered ephemera pieces. Those hearts are too sweet!

One last decorated photo mat here and a place to tuck in an extra sheet of neutral paper for capturing the memories that go with the pictures.

Please enjoy this video flip through and tutorial of how I created the mini album base.
