My First Mini-Album


Hi there!

About a month ago, a few art journals and mini-albums started showing up in my Pinterest feed.  You all know I’m pretty much obsessed with all things paper – so it’s probably no surprise that I fell down the Pinterest “rabbit hole” and became instantly inspired by what I found!

After watching countless videos and reading countless blog posts, I decided to try to make my own mini-album.  I created this from scratch using chipboard, heavy duty designer paper, and ephemera.  There are no photos or journaling in this album (yet) since I just wanted to see if I could make it and if I would like the process of making it (spoiler alert:  I did!).

Here is a quick video of the finished album so you can see what it looks like in total:

Here are a few pictures of what it looked like while I was making it:

And, of course, here is another picture of the finished album.  All that’s left is for me to decide what to put in it!  

This was so much fun to make, I learned a ton, and I am super happy with how it turned out.  It’s not perfect, but, hey, it’s my first one.  🙂 I’m bound to improve, right? You may see more mini-albums, art journals, or even art journal pages on my blog going forward.

What do you think?  Do you do art journaling?  Or scrapbooking?  I’d love to hear about what you’ve created!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
