Hello FJ fans,
I hope you are having a great week! I am here today with some autumn inspiration from the beautiful Mollie kit. Here in Prague we have proper November weather with fogs, grey clouds and high humidity so it is really nice to be able to sit down and create a fall mini album.
Back in October, during our half term holidays we did some exploring and went for a few trips. We were really lucky with some amazing autumn weather full of sunshine and colours so a mini album was an obvious choice to preserve all the great memories.
Since I had lots of panorama photos and I wanted them in 4x6 inch size, I decided I would do the album as a calendar kind of thing. To make the spine I went for the wonderful FJ rings (such a great quality and width) and added an acetate foil to place the rings in. Before I attached the foil I traced the leaves from one of the pattern papers with my white pen. I went for four rings to make the album more interesting.
The album is not yet finished (November is a very chaotic month in our house) but there are plenty of details and pages that I would like to show you:
All the hearts for the hearts! I sewed them together and hung them on a ring. I also went for a vellum divider - for each day there will be a vellum page. I love adding vellum into my mini albums.
Chipboard frames and the tags. How could I not use those!!! I love the dimension and diversity they add to an album! The felt leaves are from the Harper kit and they match the Mollie kit perfectly!
To create a pocket I just adhered two photos together leaving one side open to slide a tag in.
I also like to add journaling cards. These add more patterns than just a paper pack plus a diversity to the album. And sometimes it is fun to use them in a different than expected direction.
To decorate the photos I used mostly die cut shapes and the most brilliant chipboard hexagons. Gosh those are so brilliant!!!
Thank you so much for being here with me today and have a lovely upcoming weekend.
