Mini Album Inspiration with Barb!

Hi! It's Barb and I am here to share this fabulous School Days Mini Album!

I can not believe that school is already back in session. I thought that the summer went by too quickly, but after working on this album, I realize that my daughter's entire elementary years are going by too quickly! I loved that this mini gave me the motivation to pull all of these photos from her elementary years and put them in one place. With a flip of the page, I get to see her growth, year by year! And boy has she grown!

The cover on this album is already fabulous so all I did was add some Baker's Twine, punched stars, and star confetti to add a little dimension.

Here you can see that I added foam adhesive behind the punched stars.

This album is all about my daughter's elementary years so I made a title page for this mini. I created the look of a chalkboard by taking black card stock and adding white gel pen lines to it. The letters are stickers.

The Pattern Perfect line is made to go right along with this album. I used the papers from that line to create layers behind the photos.

There was plenty of room to add several photos for each grade level.

I also used some of the papers and journal cards from the Be Bold 6x6 Paper Pad. It matches this album perfectly!

One of the things I like best about this album is the fact that the papers work for every grade level, I was able to easily move from Kindergarten themes to more mature looks as she moved through the grade levels.  This album will be available mid-September.

Adorable! I looked at the on-line store and cannot find this album cover and not sure where to find Perfect Lines as it is not showing up in the new products. Help!
