Mini Album – Scrapbook By The Pool

In the last article I showed you what limited supplies I had when on holiday abroad (Majorca) and managed to make a mini album.  Well here is the album! This is a Hybrid Scrapbook Album as the papers I have used are from the Colourful Beauty Kit of downloadable papers  (Click on the pictures for an enlargement.)

Scrapbook by the Pool album cover

It’s based on the Mini Album in THIS article (and Video).  Here’s the first of the inside pages below.

Yep, good old fashioned tracing!  I had some lightweight paper with me and used my copy of Scrapbook Inspirations to trace a variety of letters from various pages of the magazine!  Here’s the proof I had the magazine with me (in fact I had two issues with me!!


Here are some more pages (below).  I have lightly tacked the white blocks to show where the photos will go and left space for journaling.  The word “pool” was traced and used as a template onto some patterned paper and cut out.

On the first inside page I placed a “ripped paper” flower (which could sort of double as a sun!) and I wanted to use dimensional pads to give a little more 3D to the “petals” but, of course, I didn’t have any pads, only double sided tape.   So I folded some of the double sided tape over on itself to make mini dimensional pads, and they worked just as well!

Below is a closeup of one of the corners of the pages showing the inked edges of the cardstock base (which was a baby pink and I coloured it a little “browner” to match in with the patterned papers more) and the blue inking of the distressed paper edges.  Don’t forget to click on the pictures for enlargements!
