Mini Album tutorial with Mira

Hello Everyone!
I hope You're all having a really nice day so far and that You are ready for a mini album inspiration today! Please, sit down comfortably because I have a ton of pictures presenting step by step on how I created my very simple mini album using really colorful May PL "Beach Glass" Kit together with Embellishment one. I hope You will enjoy this tutorial!





First - we need to create pages for the album. I used white cardstock and trimmed the paper into eight 6x4 cards.


Then I gathered them all together on my desk and added a bit of color using Heidi Swapp color shine and splashing it all around.


Then I picked the most colorful papers from "Beach Glass" PL Kit and started playing with them.



I decided to follow the pattern-idea from those papers inside my album, so the pages of my album were totally inspired by these.


First - rectangles:


Next, these awesome colorful stripes:


Then, the circles:


I used scissors and a small circle puncher to provide various sizes of the circles:


Confetti is such a delightful idea, that I decided to cover the whole page with this paper!


Same here - with the flower pattern:


For the rest of my pages I used the scraps of paper that were left. I simply mixed them together or matched with the neighboring page:







For the cover I've chosen these lovely flowers:


I punched the holes through all the pages and bound them together with a single ring:



Then I created and printed a photo collage - all pictures in the same size:


I trimmed them and adhered a few layers of white paper underneath:





Then - attached to the pages:


This way I was ready for embellishing!


I wanted the cover to stay very simple, so I attached this lovely Becky Higgins Project Life button and the label. Simple indeed:


Here are the pages of my album in details:









I also used a few bits from previous - April Kits (transparent words again are my favorite!):





And finally second cover to finish my mini well:


Thank You Guys, for stopping by! I really hope that You enjoyed this photo tutorial and thank's for a chance to inspire You today. I hope You are ready to play with Your May kits right away! I am pretty sure that this colorful collection of goodies will make You OPTIMISTIC!
Have a great time!
