Hello, G45ers!

 Today we have a short and simple mini album that makes for a perfect gift for a friend or a great way to capture memories from a short trip.  This Shabby Chic Mini Album has been created by Brand Ambassador, Babi Kind using our A Ladies’ Diary - Deluxe Collector’s Edition and a touch of ink from our Photogenic Decades Dye Ink Pad.  Be sure to grab your favorite fussy cutting scissor and join in the fun!  


“Friend” Shabby Chic Mini Album

By Babi Kind


“Hi Everyone!


I’m very happy to share with you today my mini album with A Ladies’ Diary collection.

I’m thrilled that this gorgeous collection is back as a Deluxe Edition.



I created this tiny album base with white cardstock and an old Sizzix die. I usually like big albums with a lot of pages and layers, but for this one, I kept it simple and affordable as a gift for a friend.  


For the cover, I alternated the layers from colorful to neutral colors. I also added a lot of fussy cut flowers to decorate the white frame.



For the pages, I pretty much used the same layout since I was very limited in space.


Tip: Add white die cut pieces in between layers and flowers to add more volume to the page.





Tip: Add more contrast to the pages by stamping a small text with Decades Photogenic.




If you love shabby chic style like me, choose light colors for the base. You can never go wrong with white. Right?


I hope you enjoyed this mini album and have a great creative time!
