Holly Jolly Mini

Happy Monday all! I have a mini album to share with you. I can't believe I am saying this, but I am looking forward to winter! It's been so hot... We had 85-degree weather in October. That just seems crazy to me.

I used Heather's Holly Jolly collection and Ashley's Tinsel Town to create this adorable mini. I created the circles using Creative Memories' Circle Cutting System. Love this tool. I cut several circles from patterned paper and photos then adhered them to the back of each one, altering between patterned paper and photos. This mini came together pretty quickly once the papers and photos were cut. Then I added a hole at the top of each page and used a piece of ribbon to bind it together. Once everything was bonded, I added the embellishments throughout the album.




I find that mini albums look better with great photos and little embellishments that do not take away from the photo. Simplicity at it's best.


 
I added a few tree stickers and die cuts to help frame the photo.
 


I used foam squares on the back of the banner stickers and adhered it to the center of the page. I tend to use embellishments with word sentiments throughout my albums to save space and to help tell my story using a few words and photos.


 
Here's a page with transparency, stickers, die cuts and vellum tape. So much fun!
 

 
This one classic photo. I love it. :)
 

 
Naturally, I ended the mini album with a smile!
