Create photo album scrapbooks with mixed media

You can really create photo album magic using an assortment of different shaped pages. This is a mixed media scrapbooking album that I put together with photographs from our Christmas holidays in NZ. We always try to cram as much action and relatives into our holidays and the end result is usually a couple of hundred photos.

Mixed media techniques

Basically I just took a 7gypsies 6x6 chipboard album, I kept around 4 or 5 pages whole and butchered the rest. I cut a couple of pages in half, made a frame from one and trimmed a couple into pretty shapes. I added a couple of different sized coin envelopes and used some journaling tags as pages too. I'm very pleased with the end result. I was going to give it to my mum for a mothers day present but I am loathe to part with it now. I would still like to add in some more pages and photos at some time which will be simple enough to do thanks to the simple loose leaf rings use to bind the album together.

Basic Grey Infuse range was used for this album.

I roughly sketched this pattern on to this page and cut it out with scissors and then adhered paper and the photo and trimmed the excess.
