Fall Mini Album by Jamie Pate

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Hey guys! Jamie Pate here! Can ya feel it? That fall chill? It's October and we are in full fall swing. I LOOOOOVE summer. But fall brings with it much to embrace and enjoy. Like a fresh new fall mini album. Taking some favorite photos that I really wanted to give a home and tell stories about, I crafted a new mini album using Truly Grateful plus several of Paige's cut files.
Said digital cut files were cut and used as stencils. Each page is host to a different stencil. Using modeling paste, I applied the paste over the 'stencil' onto white cardstock.

The left side of the mini album is a piece of patterned paper from Truly Grateful. The page also includes a coordinating scrap piece of paper that was notched and applied to the lower left corner. Then a leaf or flower from the Floral Die Cuts was adhered on the top of that. This theme repeats throughout the whole mini album.

The right side pages of the mini album also displays repeating patterns. On the back of the photo I added double sided adhesive tape to three sides: the bottom and the two sides. Then the picture was adhered to the page - this created a pocket behind the photo. Slipped into each pocket is a tag with a story of that photo.

The rest of the embellishments include tags cut from Paper 22 and layered along with more Floral Die Cuts as well as Cardstock Stickers.

I loved having the white pop of the textured page against the bright hues of the Truly Grateful patterns on the left side. Not only is this mini album full of beautiful photos that represent the season for me, but also each page is its own story. And each page is a pop of textured interest, thanks to Paige's cut files, as well as plenty of color and hue from Truly Grateful.

Hope this has inspired you too to take notice of the lovely things around you and to tell the story!
