Life Time Mini Album

Everybody knows I love making albums ... could not resist to make a quick one with the awesome Life Time Papers. The album I made is perfect for a family album.  Lets take a look..

This album is so quick to make anyone can make it within a few is based on the tutorial of Steff with a grin".  The covers are chipboard and uses two 12x12 sheets inside.  What I love about this album is you can "grow" it.  I could take another two sheets, use bigger ring binders and I could add so much more photographs. See the slim.  You could create as many pages as you wish...

The inside pages are also fun to make!  I added more texture and colour on some of the pages

It was difficult for me not to add lace everywhere but I managed "smile".  I adhered either a whole or half a doily to most of the pages. On this mini I used mod podge as my adhesive.  The burlap under the flower also matches well with the Life Time collection.  

The pages of this collection is absolutely amazing.  If you are uncomfortable working with mixed media this collection has already done it for you - all you have to do is cut and embellish.  Most of the embellishments in this mini album are from the Life Time collection but all of them are Prima!

Play around with some Prima masks and stencils...add some glimmer mists, distress inks, Prima flowers and Life Time stickers and cutouts and you have a awesome page. I have cropped the right hand bottom corner - see image below to provide a few more details 

I used half a doily and half of a Starbucks coffee sleeve to act as a pocket.  The flowers are all Prima (various collections).  The typewriter wooden piece and the wooden X are all part of the Life Time Collection. I used Victorian velvet distress ink to colour the X and white washed the typewriter with white acrylic paint. See ladies, the possibilities are endless... 

The back of the album has a strip of lace down the center (can't help myself "grin") and a lightly stamped pattern - the beautiful papers from this collection do not need much help!!

Because this album is so easy to make I am thinking of creating a kit (any collection) and PDF instructions.  All you have to do is purchase it!  Let Paper Lane know if you are is easy will be glad you made one for yourself!

Take care and happy crafting...Janine
