You Are Loved Mini Album by Bea Valint

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Absolutely swooning over this sweet mini album by Design Team member Bea Valint it's GORGEOUS from cover to cover!
Hello there! I’m so excited to share my first project I created with the brand new Pick-Me-Up collection! Everything about this collection is stunning! The colors are amazing, the mixture of both pastel and bolds, and I love all the gold, beautiful flowers, and cheerful embellishments!
I have had some cute photos of my daughter lingering on my desk waiting to be used so I decided to create a mini album using these photos and document some cute things we love about our daughter - we can't say those things often enough!

My idea was to use the pages as a pocket with round windows and place the photos on tags behind. To do this I opened a new Silhouette Studio document and drew a rectangle in the size of my page (I doubled the longer size because I folded in half the page after cutting). I placed a wreath cut file into the page and removed the outline of the wreath. I used the Flowers in Wreath, Jewel Heart, Scalloped Circles Background, and the Simple Wreath cut files and cut them from my Silhouette Cameo 3. I created four pages with this technique, folded them in half, and adhered them to a paper spine I created before. (I used the hidden hinges technique). I love how the wreaths surround the photos like a pretty paper doily.

Here is a look at some of the spreads and interactive elements:

I embellished my pages mostly using Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts. To add a little texture to the album I inserted vellum and tulle pages with lots of sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack. I wrote my journaling on Journaling Spots or on the back of tags.

Here is the back cover with string to wrap around a Button on the front to keep it closed.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like my first mini album made with the Pick-Me-Up collection!
