Sun Kissed Kit Introduction – Vol 07 2023


Mini Album with Shadow Box

Tutorial by Karan Gerber


“Welcome to my project post for July. This month we have been inspired to create a summer themed project. I decided to continue with my love for mini albums and created this beautiful 8.5 x 8.5 mini album from scratch using the Sun Kissed – Collector’s Edition



I love dimension and wanted to add a shadow box to the cover. I did this by using a Shadow Box Die.I then fussy cut elements from various papers and added some shape to the flowers using a shaping stylus. 



Adding acetate to the front of the shadow box really shows off the elements. 



Here are some images of the inside of the mini album. 



Inside front cover and first page. 



The inside front cover I have a waterfall  secured in with a Belly Band and that Journal Card has a magnet  in it to keep it all secure. And like my first mini album, I created side pockets to allow you to add pull out side photo mats. 





Be sure to check my walkthrough through video of the entire mini album here.
