Hello crafty friends,
Melin here with you today to share my mini album. I was so thrilled to have a chance to create a mini album for this week’s Christmas in July projects. I chose to go with a Calendar theme. This makes the perfect gift for special friends and or family. I started with the Scalloped Shaped Frame. I sized it to approximately 8.25 x 8.25. I cut the scallop in white. I cut out seven of them. I then cut the larger mat out in kraft cardstock. I cut out 14 of them and adhered them to both sides of the white scallop mats.
I then chose several patterned papers from the DCWV Linen Closet. I love the beautiful soft teals, blues and greens. I created the little mini calendars and the labels for the months. I’ve included them below for you to download along with a notes journaling card. I printed them out and cut them with my Inspiration Vue.
For the month labels I used the Title Frame 1. I cut them out in white and kraft paper.
For the cover I used the Vintage Frame file and created a clock face. I also used the Vintage Clock hands for the hands of the clock. I then created some flowers and used the Twirled flowers and the Flower Burst files for the flowers. For the leaves I used the Flower Basket leaves. I added in the notes card I made so that I could write down the special dates for each month.
On some of the months I added a few extra decorative die cuts. I chose to create my album with holes in the top as it will be hanging from the that position. I inserted rings and added some ribbon to the rings. This makes the perfect gift for friends and family.
