Artbooking Made Easy: On This Day Mini Albums

This week marks the official end of winter; March 20th!!  As the weather starts warming up, We begin to get excited and begin  planning our summer getaways! With that in mind, today’s episode of Artbooking Made Easy is all about the travel mini-album keys. These keys are found on pages 38 and 39 of the Artbooking booklet, so let’s take a look!

Such great projects! I love how versatile the Artbooking cartridge is—from just two pages of keys, we saw three totally different looks. Use your favorite colors, embellishments, and shapes to make your projects your own! Let me show you some of the details to inspire you.

I really love the simplicity of this page. Using kraft cardstock, the artist cut out the little geolocation icon and the airplane, and then, using the scallop border punch, created a simple border with the White Daisy and Goldrush cardstock. I love how the look of the scalloped borders matches the shape of the clouds on the next page. Sometimes using simple shapes ties things together nicely. If you have a favorite shape or cutout you’re using, experiment to see what other shapes or borders might coordinate with it.

The good thing about creating your own patterned paper using stamps is that you control how it looks—you can stamp several times to create a lot of contrast, or you can stamp it lightly to just give a hint of a pattern.

Here is the Recipe for the On This Day Mini Album:

Colors used: White Daisy, Goldrush, Whisper, New England Ivy, Lagoon, Pear, kraft

Another thing I love about this page is how the artist used the “Just Be” title in her own way to create a new title! Use your imagination to see what new titles you can come up with.
