Birthday Mini Album

I don't know about you, but I have a really hard time scrapping birthday photos. I'm not sure if it's because of the sheer number of pix from one event. Or, if it is because there are usually distracting backgrounds in the photos. Well, whatever it is, I put off scrapping them like the plague. LOL!

They need to be scrapped tho. So, I thought maybe if I make a mini album, it'll make it much easier to get birthdays documented and in a fun way too.

I made this mini album for my son's 8th birthday celebration. It is one piece of 12x12 cardstock folded in half and then accordian folded. I covered it with some new gorgeous Imagination Project paper and embellished it with some of my favorite things like Heidi Swapp ghost letters, swirl clip & index tab, American Crafts brads, Strano ribbon and Making Memories metal charms.

The inserts pull out to reveal photos, journaling and a gift list. For the photos, I just used my big honkin' square punch. I was able to get several photos on each strip that way.

I like it so much and it was so easy to do that I will definitely be making one for my daughter's birthday. :)

Cyas! Mo
