Bloom Street Mini Album by Amber Mitchell

Wednesday, March 30, 2022

 Hello crafty friends! Amber Mitchell here on Paige's blog today to share with you an easel-style mini album I created using the always stunning Bloom Street collection.

To create the base of this mini album, I used two pieces of medium weight chipboard that measured 3.5 x 4.5 inches. I wrapped and lined these pieces using scrap papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad.

The pages of this mini album are made from cut-aparts from both the 12x12 Paper Pad and Paper 17. I backed each cut-apart, most of which were 3 x 4-inch journaling cards, with patterned paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I also added a few pages that I created using scraps from the Specialty Transparency Paper; this acetate sheet is so pretty that I couldn't not include it in this project! A few extra pages made from 2 x 2-inch cards and tags added more character to the album.

To bind this album, I used the Mini Cinch by We R Memory Keepers. To create the easel-style of this mini, the two "covers" of this album need to be back-to-back when bound; this allows the album to stand up on its own.

When it came to embellishing I used a mix of pieces from the physical collection of Bloom Street as well as the Bloom Street Digital Collection. One of my favorite things about using the digital collection is that I can print and cut as many flowers as I want. And, if there's one thing I love in paper crafting, it's flowers! I can never get enough!

I layered a bunch of florals throughout the album, even framing them along the 2.5 x 3.5-inch photo mats I added to the back of each 3 x 4-inch journaling card.

Along with the florals, I also used embellishments from the Layered Butterfly Stickers, 4-Page Sticker Book, Cardstock Stickers, and Puffy Vinyl Stickers. 

As always, the final touch was a dangle made of tassels and charms. I used a few tassels from my stash, along with a handmade pom-pom charm and one of the Flower Charms from Bloom Street.

I love this album and I loved making it. It's been a while since I've used the Bloom Street collection and after working with it again on this album, I've remembered why it was one of my favorites!

Thanks so much for visiting my post today. I'll see you next time with another fun project!
