Pick-Me-Up Mini Album

There are so many ways to make a cute mini album and document all your pretty vacation pictures. Here's how @lisafonseca1985 created her interactive mini album, using the wonderful @pinkpaislee @paigetaylorevans #pickmeup collection. This collection is perfect for bright and fun summer documentation.

Hey dear friends, today I’m sharing a super cool mini album with you! When I thought of how I could make this one, I thought that it would be fun to make it in the style of a calendar. Like those calendars with rings you have on your desk, where you turn the pages horizontally, not vertically like in a normal album or book… I you don’t know what I mean, I’m sure you will know :)

For this project, I worked only with the Paige Evans Pick-Me-Up collection. For the base of the album I chose a 12×12 paper. Out of thick chipboard I cut out 3 rectangular pieces. Two in the size that I wanted my pages to be (a bit bigger than 4×5″) and one shorter (2×5″) that would go on the bottom. I covered the three pieces completely with the patterned paper and created a kind of triangle shape, with a shorter side that would stand on the bottom and two bigger sides where the pages would hang off. Very difficult for me to explain, but you can watch the process video.

Then I pierced holes in the top of the two bigger sides and put my two rings through them.

I cut a bunch of 4×5″ pieces of paper then I always used two of them and stitched them together on three sides, creating little pockets. I also created 2 envelopes with my WRMK envelope maker.

Then I started decorating all the pages. For my pictures, I used some from my very recent vacation in Pineto, Italy.

I used different techniques and made cute little interactive pieces.

Here you can see some of the cards you can pull out from the pockets. I put pictures on them, decorated with some stickers and also attached a little tag so it’s easier to pull out and to see where there’s something to pull.

What I love to do is stack some pictures together and attach them with a brad.
