Hello everyone, I'm so happy to share this project today with the new collection, Gather, by Maggie Holmes—I fell madly in love. It's a lovely pastel collection with a soft and romantic feel!
All the beautiful papers made me want to make a mini album. I knew immediately that they would be perfect for a series of portrait photos of my daughter, Lisa.
I wanted to try something different than my usual album style, so I opted for a large format (7.92" x 5.90"). I created the cover with a printed paper that I used the 2 sides of. Inside I added white smooth cardstock pages and covered with two pretty printed papers. Each paper measures 12" in length and are folded in 2. To bind, I just added a twine that I doubled.
For this first page, I created a sort of cover page using the text of the paper LOVE I recut the album format.
I pasted my phones on a white background, alternating between the right and the left pages. I highlighted the beautiful patterns with few decorative elements. Under the picture, I added a piece of paper with 2 embellishments and added 2 pretty sequined arrows. The hashtag was added with rub-on pens, a new product that is already one of my great favorites. I love the effect it adds. The pen is used very easily.
I covered the left page with one of my favorite papers. As usual, since the paper was so beautiful, I add nothing except a sewing frame. It is sufficient by itself. Really no need to add decoration!
Here we come to the center of the mini album where appears the twine connecting each page. To the white background I added a pretty label that I cut from the paper SWEET LIFE and on the other side I have glued two other pieces of paper on a pink background. I stuck the stickers "sweet" and a small yellow leaf.
Here I have highlighted the pretty paper with swans and small white dots and I used the same combo on the right page. I added a few layers of stacked papers before placing my picture and the beautiful doe. A added a doily to the top and a few stitches here and there.
This collection is really perfect for my photo series. The color combo is really well matched. I chose to make a very clear overlay paper to highlight the photo with the duck polka dot blue paper.
Here is the last album page where I chose to do a very simple and minimal design because I wanted to highlight this profile photo of my daughter that I love.
As I said, this collection is a real favorite and each element is a marvel. Have fun!
