See the Good Mini Album by Steffi Ried


Friday, September 8, 2017

I don't know how she (Stefanie Ried) does it. Every single mini album she makes is golden and completely unique! I mean, words can't do it justice. Pictures are worth a thousand words :) I asked her to make a mini album featuring the Turn the Page Layerable Stamp Set and she took it to a whole new level. Take a gander:
Hello and welcome to a new project with the new collection Turn the Page. Have you seen the great stamps? I find the flowers, leaves, and butterflies very sweet. And they fit easily into all projects. I have created with this a 3D mini book. There are cards with this effect and I wanted to try with a mini album.
First I picked the papers. I used Paper 01Paper 09, and Paper 23. I like the colors very much and they have a light touch of autumn. The photo, which is on the last page, is the central point of the album. There is a wreath of leaves, flowers, and stars.
Through the leporello binding, the stamped flowers and leaves can be fastened on all sides around the punched circle. This makes a great eye-catcher. For stamping the leaves I used a black ink pad. The flowers were first stamped in coral and pink. Then came the embossing powder in white, peach, and rose. Due to the embossing powder the color covers very well and looks beautiful.
The cut out circle is very large and the edge narrow. For this page, I used a large photo with the motif on the upper left so it fits well on this side.
At the back, the large, round photo is matted on several patterned paper circles and stitched in place.
The stars I embossed with copper powder. So I have a nice color combination between the photos, papers, and motifs.
I also have a video about the origins of the album. Have fun watching!
I hope you like this album. With little effort and the great stamps + papers, wonderful albums can be created. You can also expand the album by many more pages! I will definitely try it!

Just three spreads of amazingness and awesomeness in this album - and yet I feel like I could keep looking at these pages for hours on end, there's so much detail!! Leave it to Steffi to make us all inspired to create more minis :)
