Note: the Studio 360 Tour of my scrapbook studio will continue tomorrow...
Today is my turn at bat on the Canadian Scrapbooker blog and I featured this simple little mini album, Thankful, that I created for our family Thanksgiving dinner this weekend:
Supplies used: Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; KaiserCraft patterned papers and stickers; Spellbinders, Cheery Lynn and Heartfelt Creations dies; Martha Stewart and Marvy Uchida punches; Doodlebug Designs alpha stickers; Stampin' Up! stamp (grateful); Ranger Distress Ink; Glue Dots; miscellaneous buttons, ribbons and twine.
The covers are created from box board from our Quaker Oats oatmeal box, covered with kraft cardstock and patterned papers. The pages are kraft cardstock, simply embellished with patterned
papers, stickers or fussy-cut paper elements, a 3x3 photo mat and stamped flags. The journaling blogs were adapted from a download found on the internet (original source unknown).
Here are the decorated pages, awaiting photos and journaling. They are pretty plain with minimal embellishments, but I didn't want the mini album to be too bulky. Also, everyone will be given a page to record their thankful thoughts so I didn't want them to get damaged in the process. Instagrams of the items will be printed for the 3x3 mat and the facing page will include a 4x6 portrait of the person.
