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!
