Mini Album Tutorial | ScrapMuch? | Simple Stories

Hi there!


While I was playing with the gorgeous Pumpkin Spice collection by Simple Stories, that I was given by ScrapMuch? for my latest DT Reveal, I could help but think "Mini Album" when I saw these papers...


So using two sheets of this particular patterned paper, as well as a bit more paper and some great Pumpkin Spice embellishments I set about creating a cute mini!

Have a look:


I started by choosing a section of this patterned paper for both the front and back of my mini and filed in other pages as I went along.


I tried to create a balance between photo mats and journaling areas.


I also embellished with die cuts, and stickers - popping up some for added dimension.


This mini and these papers are so perfect for anything fall, from pumpkin patches, to cozy sweater selfies, to chasing colours and coffee dates.


I had an extra bit of this pattern left over that I used to create this "fall" page.  I trimmed it a little shorter for some extra impact. I like the varying sizes of the pages.


The page on the right had these great phrases printed on it, I used the second sheet of the same pattern to cut out every second word and pop dotted them over the same words on my original page.


I used a scrap of coordinating pattern paper to create tabs in my album.


A lot of the die cuts, were perfect matches to the pattered papers, both in size and colour so in a few instances I pop dotted the matching die cut over the pattern for impact.


How cutd is the inclusion of a pumpkin recipe!


I took every opportunity to layer elements, you know how much I love that right?!


This seemed like the perfect place to say good-bye!


Once I had my pages created, I punched holes in each page so that I could join them together to form my album.


I played around with the alignment a bit, even used a template to check each page, to ensure that I didn't punch through anything important.


I toyed with a few binding options, and considered jump rings.


But in the end I opted for some pretty fibers from my stash.

What do you think? Wouldn't this make a sweet little gift?

So glad you visited today!
