To me, mini albums are like short stories. They represent a special event, or a brief timeline of someone’s life.

My daughter’s husband and their three sons love adventurous trips and 4x4 vehicle events. I made this mini album to capture some of their fun, happy and exhausting moments. Note that I specifically journaled to explain the sleepy moment during an exciting and fun weekend.

For This Project You Will Need:

  • FabScraps Man of the moment chipboard album
  • Fabscraps C131 8 inch paper pack
  • Offcuts from the C131 Man of the moment paper pack
  • Plain cardstock in co-ordinating colours and metallic cardstock for matting your photos
  • Fabscraps brass charms – cogs
  • Fabscraps silver charms – large cogs
  • Fabscraps silver charms – small cogs
  • Fabscraps brass charms – clock face
  • Fabscraps mixed eyelets
  • Fabscraps bronze metal alphabet letetrs
  • Black gesso
  • Mixed media waxes in various colours
  • Chipboard gears, heat-embossed with mixed media embossing powder after applying embossing dabber
  • Eyelet setting tool
  • Twine

 

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the cover by painting it with black gesso. Allow to dry.
  2. Rub various colours of waxes over the black gesso.
  3. Adhere alphabet letters for the album title to a chipboard strip.
  4. Add gears to embellish the cover. First paint the gears with black gesso then rub waxes onto them for colour.
  5. Paint the edges of all album pages with black gesso, to provide a black border for the printed papers on your pages.
  6. Cut printed papers for the album pages 19,5cm high x 18,5 cm wide and adhere to the album pages.
  7. Add phots. Matt where desired.
  8. Embellish pages with tags, journaling tags, heat-embossed and waxed metal gears/cogs and heat-embossed or waxed sentiments that come with the mini album.
