Scrapbook in Bed Friday : Halloween Mini - Adventures With Ellie

Scrapbook in Bed Friday : Halloween Mini

Happy Friday everyone! Today I wanted to post quickly as my two younger are home from school today and keeping them busy while tending to the baby.

I decided to create a little mini album to share. It was really quick to put together. I used a 12x12 kraft cardstock and cut a strip of 4x12 and scored every 3 inches and folded it accordion style.

Using embellishments is what makes this album that much more fun. That is how I created the cover to showcase what it was about. I grabbed my pack of Maggie Holmes goodies and used them up.

For the inside pages I wanted to keep it s minimal  as possible to keep the focus on the pictures I had used. Here I used a few touches from Studio Calico and Amy Tan and again Maggie Holmes collections

I made sure to have a little journal to tell a bit about he meaning of the mini album. This is a great way to share what your project is about with out too many words. I usually like for my embellishments and pieces I put together to tell the story but always include at least something small written somewhere.

There you have it a quick and easy little mini you could make under an hour. Sorry I forgot to take a shot of me creating in my bed but trust me I did as my little one was napping. So tell me when was the last time you made a mini album?
