Fall is definitely my favorite time of year – and apply picking is one of my favorite harvest activities! Mini-albums are a great way to showcase a photos & details of all of your seasonal traditions.
I started with this cute apple-shaped mini album from Maya Road. Trimming paper around an album like this is the perfect task for the Fiskars Fingertip Craft Knife. After each page was covered with patterned paper (I used various papers from October Afternoon),
I added 2x2 photos. In keeping with the rounded shape of the album, I used Fiskars Round the Bend corner punch to round the corners of each photo.
One of my favorite new tools – the Lace & Lattice Border and Corner punch – makes it so easy to create cute photo mats!
I wanted to keep the back side of each page plain, but also interesting. The solution? First, I cut the shape of the album out of Core’dinations cardstock using Fiskars No. 5 non-stick scissors. I used Fiskars Texture Plates & Texturing tool to emboss the cardstock…then lightly sanded to bring the detail out. Simple, but cute!
It’s great to keep Fiskars squeeze punches & border punches handy when making a mini-album. That way, you’ll always have to tools to make the most out of your mini!
