Papers: Cardboard, Cardstock, Patterned Paper
Tools: Punches 1.5” circle, 2” circle, Crop-A-Dile, Color Markers, Jump Rings
Stamps, Ink, Distressed Ink
Embellishments: Cardstock Sticker
Print the templates on an 8 ½ x 11” paper. Trace each page to a cardboard or 110lb cardstock. You can trace as many pages as you need. Cut out the lines and you can re-trace them to a patterned paper of your choice or you can paint or ink the cardstock.
For easier way to make a mini album is to print your photos in 2”x3” (wallet size). You will be able to include more than 1 photo in a page.
I drew another wave shape on another design of paper and adhere it to the base. I stamped on some images directly on to the paper and to a cardstock, color it and paper pierced it. Embellish it anyway you want.
Second / Third Page:
These pages are a combination of adding some cardstock sticker, stamped images.
Fourth / Fifth Page:
You can overlap your photos together. Use some photo corners if you wish to emphasize a certain photo. Stamp a journal image on a cardstock that is contrast to the background paper. The top round page/wave could be transformed into a sun.
Sixth / Seventh Page:
You can add some strips of cardstock sticker sentiments along with your journal. You can re-use same stamps whether by image or sentiment using different colors to create different look.
Eight / Ninth Page:
Circle punches are great to create your own embellishment by stamping images to it or use it as a journaling spot.
Journal Stamps are great to stamp on solid background. You can also punch your photos to create dimension to the page.
