Hello crafters! I'm Celes and I feel so happy to be back on the PinkFresh Studio blog today! ;) "The Best Days" collection is AMAZING! I'm in love with it! Today we are going to create a fun an very original mini album. And... as the last time... we are going to use some dies to create it. Are you ready? Let's get started :)
As you know, the August "Stripes" monthly challenge continues. So I decided to join using it for my cover design. "The Best Days" Collection has a design paper ideal for it: "Welcome Home". I cut some stripes, added a stitching detail in the center and painted the edges of each one using the inks of PinkFresh Studio: Ballet Slipper, Marigold, Soft Lilac, Lemon Whip, Sky Blue and Meadow.
I cut my first envelope in white cardstock and added the stripes diagonally (using 3D foam). Also, I used the Artistic Bows Die Set and the Stitched Scallop Circle Die Set to decorate the cover. Besides them, I used the Puffy Stickers, some die cuts from the ephemera pack, the Chipboard Flair and one bit from the Journaling Bits pack.
Once the cover was ready, I cut 7 envelopes using papers from the The Best Days 12x12 Paper Pack. Also I cut 7 pieces of 1 1/2" w x 4" h (white cardstock). Score in: 1/2", 3/4", 1". I used each piece to join the envelopes together. When you fold each piece of paper you will notice that an "M" is formed.
If you wish you can add a bow to make the closure of the mini album. I decided to leave it open because I love the way it looks ;)
The structure and cover is ready! Time to decorate the interior of the mini album! YAY! :)
Decorate every page using all you have. Remember to leave enough free space for photos and to write memories. Also, I cut some interior pages for every envelope using the Mini Slimline Essentials Bundle Die Set.
I hope you like this idea! I hope it has inspired you to start creating with "The Best Days"collection.
I would love to see your versions of this idea ;)
See you next time!
