Ivy Gates Spring Mini Album

Hi everyone! Loes here today to share this fabulous gate fold mini album from Want2Scrap. 

I love all of the detail on the cover of this mini album. It's reminded me of a fancy gate, so I made two fasteners on the front so you can open the "gate" and look inside of the mini album.


Because the pages are smaller, I cut the photo in half. 


The Seasons: Spring collection is a petite collection, but there are so many little elements in this collection that you can create your own embellishments.


I ink all of the edges of the mini album with an ink blusher tool to give a nice soft look. 


On the last page, I fussy cut the umbrella and banner out of the 12 x 12 paper and used foam tape for more dimension.

Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko: Memento Bamboo Leaves, Ink Blushers

  23. Really like your idea for the album, by making it a 2-door album it encourages a person to slow down and appreciate all the work that went into it (in addition to the wonderful pictures)
