MINC It Monday | Ephemera and Mini Albums
Happy Monday friends.
Today for Minc It Monday I thought it would be fun to feature one of my favourite ‘minc-able’ products: the Hawthorne Ephemera pack. It is now available at JoAnn stores and JoAnn on line and is such a fabulous addition to any paper crafting project you may be working on!
This package is filled with delicious bits of goodness….icons, phrases, journaling cards, transparency pieces…SO many beautiful pieces.
Inside this package also comes an insert that shows just how many of these ephemera pieces are specialty printed so they can be run through your Minc machine!
SO fun right?!? I mean…you can always leave the ephemera “as is”, but it is certainly awesome to have the option that you can customize them with your Minc machine if you so wish. I love that concept!
Inside this mini book are some favourite photos of my kids taken this past summer.
I thought that the ephemera pieces would be the perfect addition and embellishment for this keepsake.
So let me show you just how wonderful this ephemera is and how easy it is to transform with a Minc machine!
To begin, I chose my desired colors of foils as well as my ephemera.
I placed my ephemera inside the Minc transfer folder all face up.
Once it was through my machine I simply removed the foil to reveal the Minc transformation. I just love the subtle foiled effects!
Once all of my ephemera was foiled, I then simply added the pieces into my accordion fold mini album.
On my mini book cover I used one of the foam words from the Hawthorne Foam Sticker pack. This is another way to add beautiful foiled effects to your projects as well. Simply peel off the top layer of the word, apply foil by gently rubbing atop the word and voila! Foiled lettering! I love it!
Inside my album I placed all the little bits of ephemera. I love how beautiful they look alongside my photos.
The ephemera pieces are so much fun to use alone and/or layer.
There are truly so many ways to incorporate the Minc machine and Minc products into your paper crafting projects. Be sure to check out this wonderful collection of Hawthorne Ephemera the next time you are at JoAnn or pursuing JoAnn online. I hope you love creating with it just as much as I have. It is the best!
Happiest Monday XO.
