When my kiddos were little, one of our favorite fall family traditions was taking a trip out to our local corn maze. Of course I always brought my camera along, and of course, I always ended up with lots of photos from this event each year. Perfect excuse for a mini album project today with Authentique’s new fall collection, Seasons Autumn!
For this mini album, I chose a smaller chipboard album from Maya Road as my starting point. My personal tip with mini albums is to keep the inner pages uniform and simple in design. Once I figure out a design, I’ll repeat the same elements on every page throughout the album. Your album ends up with a nice cohesive feel, plus this cuts ways back on overall project completion time.
But I do like to have fun with the covers. Since I don’t usually add photos to my covers, this is the place where I can really go to town.
Check out these photos of my wee ones! My gosh, how tiny they were!
The pages are little, too, so there’s not much room for more than photos and perhaps a few word strips and stickers.
My wee littles aren’t so little anymore. Good thing for photos!
There are more details and photos on the Authentique blog, if you’d like to learn more.
And now the time has come. Wee baby Pete from the mini album is suddenly all grown up. Today he moves into his dorm. Wish us luck……..
I’m going to need it!
