Hi everyone! My husband and I will be celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary in a few weeks, and I wanted to create an album that shows how much I love him.
I love the rich vibrant colors and smooth texture of the Canvas Corp basic papers and wanted to use them for my mini.
On the cover - I dipped a heart shaped cookie cutter in white paint and stamped the heart pattern on clear book cover stock. I used my Bind it all and a 1/2 inch ring to bind the book together. To camouflage the rings, I tied a loose loop bow and put it on the side of a Canvas Corp red canvas flower.
Here is a look at a few of my favorite pages from the mini.
To keep the book consistent with the theme, I printed all pictures in black and white. Most of the photos used in this book were taken from my Instagram library. They are the perfect size for a mini album.
The Whimsical patterns from the Canvas Corp papers, make this mini fun, and romantic. I cut a lot of Polaroid frames from solids to help break up the busy patterns from the papers. I encourage you to also use the solids to cut small accent pieces like this Tim Holtz Mini Vintage Camera die.
