I don’t know about you, but sometimes it is hard for me to think of interactive handmade gifts for people. I mean, everyone in my circle are not scrappers. Honestly, when people find out I make cards and I scrapbook, I get the eyebrow…to get them involved (without them knowing) I found mini albums are the ticket! However, they can be very time consuming. In the end though they are worth it because people add their own photos and they truly treasure them!
One of the new releases consisted of a “Joy” Word Mini Book. All of the work was done for me and I am going to look like I worked on this chipboard mini album for a long time (it didn’t take long…shhh).
This project was pretty straight forward. The first step was to cut the file with chipboard. Next I cut it in the pattern paper twice (one mirrored for the backs). I also cut the word Joy separately in chipboard.
Once I had the album assembled, I used the O’Hannah Oval file for the label and corner. They were heat embossed with gold embossing power. I also cut the Swirly Holiday Tree file in glitter paper (can be purchased at BossKut.com). The tree file is very intricate to begin with, but to cut glitter paper can be scary. However, I was not afraid cutting it with the Gazelle. As you can see, it cut like butter! The photos can be place under the corners and the tree.
I hope you all enjoyed today’s project! Check out BossKut.com for these files and inspiration! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
