Accordion Box Mini Album by Amber Mitchell

Tuesday, September 15, 2020

Hello crafty friends! Amber Mitchell here here on Paige's blog today to share with you this fun mini album I created using the new Go the Scenic Route collection and Paige's Accordion Box Mini Album cut file.
The bright and happy colors and sentiments of this collection made me want to create something that popped! The Accordion Box Mini Album cut file was perfect for that. It's unique, fun, and easy to assemble - it only takes a few moments once all the pieces are cut!

This album has a lot of space for memories and photos. As such, I made sure to include journaling spaces in each individual pocket by using pieces I cut from Paper 1 along with some pieces I selected from the Ephemera Die Cuts. I stitched around the edges of these pieces to add texture and even layered some up before moving onto embellishing.

One thing I love about new collections is getting to play with all the pretty bits and pieces for the first time! I used a mixture of pieces from the Chipboard StickersEphemera Die CutsFloral Die Cuts, and Cardstock Stickers to decorate both the cover of this album as well as the journaling cards scattered throughout it. I love how all the colors pop against one another!

The final touch I wanted to include for this project were a few handmade journals. I've recently jumped into learning more about bookbinding and wanted to practice a bit. These journals measure 3.5 x 4.25" and are bound together using a saddle stitch. To dress these up a bit I added a few charms to the spines of each one. I also used the Foam ThickersEphemera Die CutsFloral Die CutsCardstock Stickers and Paige's Flower cut file to embellish these.

And with that, this album is now ready for photos and memories! Take care and happy crafting! I'll see you next time with another fun project!
