I've got admit that lately, on most my projects, I find myself automatically reaching for my silhouette machine to either help add the finishing touches or even as inspiration for some of the projects. With all the amazing designs that are available and the endless possibilities, what can I say...gotta make the cut!
Speaking of inspiration, today's mini album about those moments throughout the week, was inspired by Loni Steven's "Days in the Week" design files.
For this album, I used a mix of pattern papers and embellishments from various Crate Paper collections, including Story Teller, Pretty Party, Little Bo Peep and Little Boy Blue. The concept behind the album was to create something that I could use to organize and help document the various moments throughout the week; similar to having a diary. Whereby I created a card for each day to be used as page dividers and in between, I added several sheets of journaling paper.
Interested in making one? Then grab some pattern papers, stickers, and all those embellishments that you've been hoarding. Also, dust off that Silhouette machine or put your new Cameo to action and start cutting away some design files for the days of the week, a title and some additional page dividers (I found that the 4" x 6" card designs are perfect for these). For added variation, consider including "overlay" page dividers and don't forget that you'll need a stack of journaling paper, too. (On some of the mini album pages, I attached tabs to help flip through the book and to quickly jot down dates.)
Each page divider I created represents a day of the week, including weekends. Those days are each numbered, and backed with a "pop of color". For a tone-on-tone effect, the titles were kept "white", the same color as the background.
Thanks for letting me share this petite, "cut-in-yourself" mini album with you. If you're interest in making a similar album, you can find the files here, here, and here. Have a scrapp'en fun day everyone!
