Hello everyone! Kerstin here today with a new Mini Album inspiration for you feat. the gorgeous LOVELY BLOOMS collection. This collection is for hoarding! I must confess every time I want to use something, be it papers or embellishments, I ask myself, do I have to order that again? Crazy, right? I hope it's not just me! LOVELY BLOOMS is a spring, summer and also fall collection for me. Now let's move on to my
I love making mini albums. Keeping memories in an album with lots of decorations. My son Tim was traveling with his best friends and asked me, Mom will you make me one of your cool albums? How can I say no to that. Here it
The album looks more difficult from this perspective than it is. It is made of folded paper strips, which are glued together and into a folded cover with spine. AND of course with lots of decoration from the fabulous
Width of the strips: 2 1/2 inch, 3 inch, 3 1/2 inch
Length of the strips: 9 1/2 inch and 10 inch
For the complete album I cut 3x 2 1/2 inch, 6x 3 inch and 3x 3 1/2 inch wide strips. I varied the length.
Folded the strips:
9 1/2 inch long at: 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 5 1/2" and 9"
10 inch long at: 3 3/4", 4 3/4", 5 3/4" and 9 1/2".
The cover in which 4 strips come in each case has a size of 4 x 12 inch - folded at 5 7/8 and 6 1/8 inch.

The individual "sides" of the fronts have a width of 1 inch. I cut the papers accordingly and adjusted the height after gluing. I used the LOVELY BLOOMS 6 x 6 Paper Pack for this. With all the wonderful papers, it was very hard for me to
I can't even describe every single page. I had great fun creating the individual elements with the Puffy Stickers, Floral Ephemera, Chipboard Stickers and of course Enamel Dots. I hope you can see everything
We haven't even talked about the cover yet. Here I found the choice very very difficult! I had 4 different ones to choose from. Now please don't shake your head - lol! I have already said at the beginning that the LOVELY BLOOMS collection is a dream. I have opted for the watercolor blue paper. On top I put a Journaling Bit with one of the amazing flowers from the Floral Ephemera, a Chipboard Frame and a saying from the Ephemera Pack.
I hope you like this idea / mini album as much as I like it! On the Instgram Account of Pinkfresh Studio you can find a Reel. There you can see individual steps or decorations.
I'm glad you stopped by. I wish you a wonderful and creative time. See you next time!
