Hi everyone! Kerstin here today to show you how I created this cute “happy moments” star mini album. I've wanted to make this kind of mini album for a long time but, as it is, something has always kept me from it. When I saw the "happy moments" die cut in the Emily Die Cut Shapes I knew it ... now I'll make a star mini album!
"happy moments" ... wonderful moments I look at when my day has not gone so well.
First I cut cardstock for the cover to 4 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches and adhered it on with the great Dot Grid paper. Can you remember my layout for the sketch challenge? I had some leaves left over and I just had to use them, decorated along with some Emily Die Cut shapes and of course the great lettering "happy moments"!
For the inside pages, I cut white cardstock to size 9 x 4 inches (6 times), folded it in half and then glued them together - always keeping the edge of the closed side straight on top of each other.
I cut 8 x 4 inch rectangles (6 times) from the great Emily, Annie and June papers then drew a border 1/2 inch wide with my pencil and cut out the center with my craft knife.
Then I cut 6 rectangles from the great FJ papers Emily, Annie and June in the size 7 x 4 inch and also with my pencil I drew a border a little more than 1/4 inch and also cut out the center with my cutter knife.
For my photos I thought about what makes me happy after a stressful day ... after that I chose my photos!
I took the glued together white cardstock and glued the cover starting at the front and back on the closed side.
For the first page, I used an Emily Solid Paper in 8 x 4 inches with the narrow side right and left glued to the white cardstock with double sided tape. Then I did the same thing with the Annie Candy Paper 7 x 4 inches - gluing each with the narrow side right and left to the Solid Paper. Because the papers (frames) are smaller than the cardstock - a star is created!
Do the same with each side so and then the fun with decorating can begin.
I have of course used the great September Emily Kit, but also parts from Annie, Capri, Ginny and Julia! It all fits together so wonderfully and it's just fun to be creative with it.
I have a video for you! Here you can see more exactly how everything fits together! If you have any questions, please contact me and I'll be happy to help!
Have fun watching and being creative with your Felicity Jane kits!
See you soon,
