I'm excited to have a little scrapbooking project to share with you today!
♥I love having a collection of photos from a special occasion or a little road trip to put together in a mini scrapbook! I haven't made a mini-book since last summer and I'd been itching to play with paper - just needed a good set of photos to fill one up. For this one, I used the photos I took recently when Doug and I went camping.
I kept my embellishments simple and one-dimensional, and I was tempted to add some journaling and doodling along the way but in the end decided that I was happy with it just the way it was. I'll show you photos of my pages and then at the end of this post, for those of you who are interested, I'll provide some detail on how I made my book.
And now, the details:
♥ My pages are 4" x 6" - I cut Kraft cardstock to 8" x 6", scored down the center and folded to create a double-page layout.♥ Book pages are glued back-to-back - I used a tape runner. I published a tutorial a while back that shows how to construct a book like this, and you can see that here.
♥ Before adding photos and/or embellishments, I stamped the background with a few random stamps I have. Nothing fancy, just random...
♥ I used punches for my shapes, cardstock and scraps from an old dictionary I have.
♥ I inked the edges of my punched shapes, as well as the edges of all of the pages. Inking the edges of punched shapes gives them added dimension.
♥ My title strips were printed using a Word document. I inserted a table and filled the background with brown, then made my font white. Printed, then cut the strips.
