Inspirational Mini Album “Life is about…”
This post is also available in Українською мовою
This is my second post for the new Explore Beyond Blog from Spellbinders Paper Arts as International Blog Ambassador (you can find my first post here) and today I’m sharing an inspirational mini album “Life is about…”
I decided to step aside from my regular mini albums with photos and do something different this time – an inspirational album with several words and phrases about things in life about which I shouldn’t forget. My mini album turned out to be quite thick although it only has a few pages and minimum embellishments.
Chipboard album base is done using cardstock and Spellbinders dies (mostly butterfly and tag designs). Each page is made up of 4-5 layers of plain white or cream cardstock and one or two layers of pattern paper from First Edition adhered together with the help of double sided tape.
Album is embellished with a bezel piece which says Life. This piece was a starting point for my album and for my inspiration.
Each page has a few words as well as one or two embellishments:
Album is held together with the help of a white 1 1/4″ wire from Zutter.
Here’s a video of how this album came together:
