Backyard Mini Album by Lorilei Murphy

Wednesday, April 4, 2018

Are you excited to see a new mini album by design team member Lorilei Murphy?! I sure am! Check it out:
Hello! I am happy to be sharing my mini album today! The album is 6x4” and bound using a Cinch tool. I made the cover with the gorgeous Floral Transparency Paper from Pick-Me-Up. For a special touch I made a flower from hand cut patterned paper circles layered together then embellished with some gold leaves from the Chipboard Stickers and added pretty sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack. I placed a piece of vellum under the transparency and attached it with a heart paper clip to make it one page.
Mini albums are so much fun to make! Using Paige’s cut files adds such a unique flair and interest to the mini pages. Pick-Me-Up is perfect for mini albums, it has a wide range of possibilities to suit any photos, even simple backyard photos.
I love the simple beauty of the Geometric Feather cut file cut from white cardstock and decorated with some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine splatters and a fussy cut flower from Paper 02.
Little 2” pockets are fun to decorate with 2x2 Paper Pads.
The Butterfly Cluster cut file is a must have - even cut from simple white paper they have a huge impact. The sweet blue butterfly sequin is from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack.
I added more layered butterflies to the back of the tag.
The Adventure cut file is one of my favorites - it looks great cut big and small.
I folded a piece of vellum for this page and tucked in the Lined Hearts cut file - the heart from the Pick-Me-Up Ephemera Die Cuts fit perfectly!
I cut a square out of the paper I cut all the butterflies from and layered it up with some stickers on this envelope.
I made a page with the leftover transparency and then “sandwiched” the Heart Love cut file in between vellum and stitched it.
I added a tiny gold heart to the back of the cut file on this page. I think it looks pretty showing through the vellum even if the writing is backwards!
I added the Cross Stitch Heart cut file to the last page. Instead of having my stitching threads on the back I left them long on the front and tied them in a bow.
