A Lori Whitlock Mini-Album
I seriously have this crazy obsession with mini-albums. I cannot get enough of them! So, when I saw Lori Whitlock's Build an Album Set in her STORE, I started doing a happy dance. I LOVE all the different shapes that are included; in fact, I loved them so much that my mini-album ended up being HUGE. Why? Because I just had to had to had to use each of the different shapes. That's right, I HAD to. Combine that "need" with all of the adorable professional photos my youngest daughter recently had taken, and I had twelve pages done before common sense took over and forced me to stop!
Lori also has these wonderful 3x4 NUMBER CARDS, which inspired the theme of my mini-album. I decided to list twelve attributes, or things, about my baby girl that I love. I used Echo Park's Graceful papers from the This and That Collection (designed by Lori, of course), which is full of wonderful phrases (among other things). I also used some fantastic PHRASES from Lori's Store, including the "For the Record" phrase on my album's cover.
Here's how the pages turned out:
I love how the different shaped pages look mixed together in my album, don't you?
A little close-up - I had a lot of fun cutting out the flash cards included with the EP Graceful papers and using them in my album:
Journaling cards in pockets are a must for me!
Another page with a different shape:
And more pockets with cards and pictures tucked inside...
Last page...the library card folder is also created by Lori. It's just right for a little love note I included to my daughter.
Have you made a mini-album? If not, I highly encourage you to give it a try. They are perfect gifts - either for someone you love or just for yourself!
