Hi, Renee here to share a Hugs & Kisses Mini Album I put together using the Jen Hadfield Everyday collection and the We R Memory Keepers Cinch Book Binding Tool. I love the bright and happy colors and gold foil touches in this collection. This mini album is very different from the Colors of Fall Mini Album I made quite a while back because the photos are smaller and I scrapped each page as a mini layout.
The album measures about 5½” x 6½” and I used some of my favorite “Hugs & Kisses” photos from last year.
The photos were printed as black and white and almost all of the photos measure 2½” x 2½” square.
For the front and back covers, I used the Angled Tiles pattern paper. I mentioned before that the album measures about 5½” x 6½”. I also used the squares to determine the size of my album. The album is 5 squares wide by 6 squares tall. The square design also helped guide the placement of my title. I first centered the Ampersand Sticker and then used my ruler to place the “hugs” and “kisses” Gold Gilded Thickers along the top and bottom of the ampersand sticker. I used the From Me To You Roller Stamp to add the “2015” to my cover.
I used the Pretty Peonies pattern paper for the background of this page as well as the fussy cut flowers for this page. I added some pretty gold splatters around the page. The photo was originally 2½” x 2½” but I trimmed it to the shape of the letter “O” to use in my word. It was just too perfect that the girls were hugging close together. Super cute. Love the large gold alpha stickers!
I used the Gemstones pattern paper for the background and dots design on this page. I used the bottom strip of the Scripted Thoughts pattern paper along my dots design to add my journaling. I added more gold splatters along with pretty “cactus” and “potted plant” Die-Cuts and small flower Sticker. Love this photo of the girls hugging in the pool. Or, are they fighting for the ball? Hmm. Nope, they are definitely giving hugs. I’ll go with that. Ha!
Sweet hugs from my sweet girls! Definitely, yes. I used the Floral Skies pattern paper for the background of this page. I added the Scripted Thoughts pattern paper on top of that. I added gold splatters along with “flowers”, “butterflies”, and “gold leaves” Stickers. A pretty pink Rhinestone Sticker finishes off this page.
Love this photo of the girls with Daddy! So much love. I tried not to make this page too feminine. I used the Pops of Color pattern paper for the background of this page. I also used a strip of it to add this great triangle design to the page. I cut a red stripe from the Sweet Dots pattern paper and used a heart punch to create these hearts. I added a flower Die-Cut, Gold Metal Studs, and Fringe Tapes to the page.
I love the lemons on this Honeycomb pattern paper! I matted my photo with vellum and the Pink Picnic pattern paper. I added a Decorative Tag under my photo. I added more gold splatters, a flower Sticker, a heart Sticker, and lemon, potted plant, and “lovely” heart Die-Cuts around the page.
I used the Tropical Delight pattern paper for background of this page. Love the anchors design from the Scripted Thoughts pattern paper. I matted my photo with the Angled Tiles pattern paper. Love the “anchor” Die-Cut (it also comes in gold). I added a pretty pineapple, flower, and leaves Sticker. Perfect pool photo for this page!
I used the Sweet Dots pattern paper for the background of this page. I matted my photo with the World View pattern paper. I added the vellum “Shine Bright” gem and flower Die-Cuts and Gold Metal Clip. I also added Fringe Tape below my photo of the girls going to school (big smiles because it was the last day of school before summer break).
I used the awesome Brushstrokes pattern paper for the background of this page and matted my photo with the Happy Thoughts pattern paper. Love this “good day” vellum and gold pineapple Die-Cut! I added a Decorative Tag, flower Sticker, and the bottom strip of the Floral Skies pattern paper underneath my photo. Love this photo of the girls waiting in line for the Roaring Rapids ride at Six Flags Great America.
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and I hope you enjoyed my Hugs & Kisses Mini Album. 😉
