An "Anchored" Mini Album

Hi everyone, it's Audrey, and today I have a fun mini album to share with you that I created with the adorable Anchored collection.



A couple of summers ago, my daughter was fortunate enough to spend a week at the beach with a good friend. The girls had all sorts of wonderful adventures, and I ended up with lots of great photos to scrap. Perfect excuse for creating a mini album.

And with its nautical theme, Anchored was the perfect collection to use.

To create my mini album, I stuck with a general design theme. One page is covered with a photo..

While the other is dressed up with pretty Anchored papers and cardstock stickers.

And since the pages of my chipboard album are small, I added pockets to the decorated sides that hold tags with all the journaling of their adventures.

 By sticking to one general design theme, putting together an entire mini album becomes a breeze.  I love how it turned out, and know that my daughter will treasure these happy memories forever.

Looking for some other creative ideas using the Anchored collection?


Try adding your favorite print to a frame or shadowbox for instant artwork for your home.

So great for a little boy's room, don't you think?


Enjoy!
