Aloha Mini Album by Brianna Lepper

Thursday, April 23, 2020

Hi crafty friends! Brianna Lepper here and I'm so excited to finally be able to share this cute mini album with y'all! For this mini, I used Paige's Accordion Mini Album With Tags cut file along with her newest collection, Bloom Street.

When we first got sneaks of the collection, I immediately fell in love with the floral Specialty Transparency Paper and knew right away that I'd use it for a mini album cover. I created this mini album as a gift for my mom, documenting their visit to us while we were still living in Hawaii. So many great memories! So let's get started with a flip through first:

I went ahead and cut out the entire cut file using different patterned papers from the collection. Since I was using the Specialty Transparency Paper for the cover, I measured out the correct dimensions, cut it on my trimmer, and added the score lines. Paige has a tutorial on how to assemble this cut file on her YouTube channel that you can watch here. I then punched out a couple of holes in the transparency paper, added some eyelets, and attached one of the Tassels and one of the Flower Charms. Here are the papers I used for the base of my album: Paper 04Paper 05Paper 06Paper 09Paper 14, and Paper 23.

I used the Puffy Word Stickers to create my title and since the cut file already had this heart shape cut and ready, I made a sequin shaker using the sequins from the Mixed Embellishments. I finished it off with the cutest Layered Butterfly Sticker!

Before I assembled and adhered all of the pages together, I ran each one through my sewing machine.

I cut apart Paper 01 and tucked in a few bits into a pocket I created using some scraps of the papers I had from the base pages. To create some extra interest, I used a notebook punch from my stash and ran a scrap through it and put a photo on top of it. I also used the 4-Page Sticker Book to embellish the pages.

I love to incorporate interactive elements and took one of the cut apart pieces and tucked a photo underneath it. I adhered a piece of Washi Tape to the top of it to allow it to be flipped up.

Since I had so many photos to go in this album, I added some of them onto the tags and tied some ribbon from my stash onto each one. When I was adhering the whole album together, I only applied score tape adhesive to the bottom and sides of each page so that they could serve as pockets for the tags.

Another little flip out element on another page. So fun! I embellished using some of the Cardstock Stickers.

Here's the inside:

I've been wanting to use the Acrylic Stamps from the collection so I stamped a few of them using inks from my stash and then fussy cut them. I used them as additional embellishments throughout my project and love how they look!

I had a lot of extra photos that weren't going to fit onto the pages, so I decided to make a mini book and attached it to one of the pages. I added a butterfly Ephemera Die Cut and stitched through it.

Here's one of the pages from that mini book I created. I added a heart from the Puffy Vinyl Stickers and also added some gems from the Mixed Embellishments. I had so much fun creating and embellishing this mini album! I plan on giving it to my Mmm for Mother's Day and I hope she loves it!

 Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I've inspired you in some way and I also hope that you give this Accordion Mini Album With Tags cut file a try!
