Old School Mini Album
Old School is in the house.
And it was begging me to make a mini album. Right? I know. When your newest stash of paper loveliness tells YOU what to do. The vibe is strong with this one. It definitely has this Old School feel. I chose for this assignment to pull out the pinks, a bit of black, and plenty of florals to document the story of my youngest daughter’s Homecoming.
The mini album is 6-inches x 8-inches. One of my favorite sizes to work in. I had a bit of fun pulling patterns together and just going for it.
Alpha stamps for the win! Am I right? I love that Heidi has been including Alpha Stamps with her collections of late. This stamp set has a layering aspect with two different sets of alphas that play together nicely. I kept with the bold set to make that bold title down the side of this mini album spread.
The tag is from the Tag Set. It was layered over a swatch of pattern paper I notched and sanded to give it contrast yet unity on this page. The floral is vellum from the Ephemera Set. I could use a whole entire package of vellum florals. Yes I could.
And did you catch the black definition sticker? Yep. Old School style. (See what I did there?)
The right side of this spread is where the mini album comes in. Watch THIS process video here. I show you how I made the cover for this album. Plus a back to back bound mini album under this feature photo.
I added a page lift with another swatch of pattern paper. It was also notched, and then folded and stapled on the edge. This was adhered to the photo page, and then the floral die cut was tucked in behind. And that UR Beautiful tag…yep. Perfect just as it was layered over all the other papers.
Inside I am adding photos from our little impromptu photo sesh. This is a story of two sophmores new to their high school who met on the first day and became inseparable. Then they were each others ‘date’ for the Homecoming Dance. Just pure fun.

And grab you some Old School and start your own mini album of stories documented.
