5 Tips for Decorating A Mini Album | Crate Paper | Wild Heart

Crate Paper | Mini Album with Wild Heart 

Hello and welcome to a new blog post featuring loooots of photos of a chunky mini album that I created with the Wild Heart Collection from Crate Paper. I documented one of our recent trips to Berlin in this mini album. I hope you enjoy seeing all the different pages. And also the wonderful embellishments and patterned papers from the Wild Heart Collection. Check out some of the photos on the CP blog too... I thought you might be interested in seeing the whole mini album. So let's go. I'm hoping you've got some time to browse through the mini album. Have fun!!! And have a good day. Xoxo, Sandra.

5 Tips for decorating your mini album

  • Combine different materials for the base of your mini album: patterned paper, white cardstock, vellum, plastic sheets, etc.
  • Use different paper sizes: combine shorter and longer pieces of paper
  • Use a variety of techniques and styles to decorate the pages: stamping, sewing, weaving, fringed backgrounds, hidden photos, interactive elements, pockets, etc.
  • Add a nice garland
  • Pockets: make a shaker pocket page with photos, lots of confetti and stickers AND add little slip-in pockets at the bottom of a page for smaller keepsakes--like tickets, small photos, etc.
