I'm sharing a hybrid mini album on the Glitz blog today. I'm also sharing how I added the sentiments onto the photos (they're journaling cards and colored sentiments altered in Photoshop).
Here's the cover:
Even though summer isn't over, I wanted to make the first mini album sharing a few of our everyday activities during the summer.
Here are pictures of the inside:
For the "You are here," I colored white embossing paste with three colors of stamp reinkers. When I made THIS card, I made two panels (I can never estimate how much embossing paste I'm going to use). I had the second one in my scrap pile and decided it worked with the album. Yeah for scraps! :)
I used Brightside papers and a sticker. The papers on the page with my son were supposed to look like sunrays. Yeah...not so much. LOL! I love yellow, though, so I decided to leave it. For the flowers, I used a digital element from the Brightside collection, enlarged the flowers, and fussy-cut them.
The sentiment on the left is a journaling card from the Carpe Diem Element Pack 2. I converted it to an overlay. I used a traditional Brightside journaling card on the right.
I used a mix of Brightside and Felicity for these two pages. Since I used digital flowers (instead of a sticker), I was able to flip one and resize them.
The pocket was die-cut from Brightside paper using the Paper Smooches Deco Bag, and I was able to add some journaling inside. The flower on the outside is the Paper Smooches Poinsettia die--it's a very versatile flower die!
I think this photo was my favorite of the summer (so far) since it really shows my kids' personalities. The sentiment from the Glitz Felicity Element Pack was perfect.
My daughter is a big reader, and I wanted to capture that. For the page on the right, I wanted to create something like my son's tie-die shirt, so I stitched through some Glitz Brightside rays.
Thanks for taking a peek at my album. If you get a chance, please check out the Glitz blog. Thanks!
Have a great day!
