So today I thought I would share a few really simple minis I have made. I love all the super creative mini albums I see on blogs I visit but to be honest I have never really made a super creative one. I would love to but just can't find the time. I have soooooo many photo and stories to tell before I can play.
My mini's are in actual fact themed albums. I like 6x6 and 8x8 sizes for this. I tend to follow Cathy Z's lead and create my smaller albums with a simple and basic colour scheme. And I find they are a great place for photos that I love but don't have a big story to go with them.
This mini I created a few years ago with a Ali Edwards kit and is just a year of my favourite photos of the girls.
The next is an 8x8 album of again my favourite photos but with a simple colour scheme.
This is based on a CZ album. I love that I just chose 2 sheets of pattern paper and some colours, cut it up and stuck t in with the photos. I printed them as 6x8 the cropped them to 6x6. I made them all b&w so the colours didn't clash but I'm not sure i'd do that again.
And finally ... in 2008 Nicole and I and lots of others did a slightly different take on the 'photo a day' idea. We called it "52 Weeks".
It is simple 1 photo a week, with a week of journalling. I really like this , Maddy pulled it out just the other day and started reading it. She loved looking back. And isn't that what we all love most about what we do :)
Have you got a good idea for a mini? If so please share it in the comments with a link if possible. I think I need to get back and do some more like these. Actually I have one in the planning stages right now... I will share it soon.
For you Aussie girls...enjoy the long weekend and thanks for stopping by
