I just finished working on this gorgeous new mini album that I am planning to throw all of my Spring photos in. The cold has gotten to me and I am ready for it to heat up a little. Lucky for me, it does not stay cold for very long where I live and Spring will be here within a couple of months. As you can tell, I am already looking forward to the warmer weather and the new season so I thought I would get a head start on a Spring scrapbook.
Springtime Mini Album
I wanted to use kraft cardstock as my base and some bright, fun colors for the paper. As I was looking through my stash I found this gorgeous paper pack from My Mind’s Eye called Ooh La La. It is gorgeous paper and I love the palette. It’s filled with greens, yellows, oranges and reds. Once I started doing the first couple of pages I decided to not use any of the red papers or elements and save those for another mini album, possibly Valentine’s day themed.
The mini itself measures 3″ by 8 1/2″. I did not use any chipboard for the covers and no fancy bindings, it is very much a barebones album. I figured this would make a great coffee table scrapbook because it is light and doesn’t take up too much space. Not to mention, it did not take very long to make. Enjoy the share!

Very cute little owl charm that I absolutely adore. The pearl chains and charm was part of a necklace I found at the .99 store.
Custom handmade crinkle seam binding.
Scallop mini album template can be found at Scallop Envelope Die and Template.
White paint splatter on the background.
I sprinkled embossing powder onto the background of this tag and set it then added some really pretty lace details.
Big pocket page at the end of the album for all of the extra goodies that I like to throw into my albums to remember like receipts, tickets and movie stubs.
I left the back plain with a simple white doily.
