Hello TSC Fans! Today we have another craetive Sunday and we will present you another TSC series! This time we will show you some mini books inspirations under the name of our series: TSC SCrapBOOK. Ones a month we will publish a post full of ideas for mini albums in a various shapes, forms, styles and of course with a various The ScrapCake collections! Welcome on our frist ScrapBOOK day!
I love traveling, seeing different places and cultures. A great way to preserve these moments is to keep them in a book or mini album all together grouped by theme.
For this special blog post I created a mini album to tell about a family trip to Bahia in Brazil. As the teme was related to the sea and the beach, I chose to use the colorful and inspiring “Summer at the Seaside” TSC collection with all its adorable octopuses, shells, bathing suits images. I cut them out to decorate this mini which cover and case box were done from recycled cardboard. The cardboard with some fibers, shells and inks were perfect to portray some memories and feelings related to the sea, the sea breeze, the warmth and coziness of the beach. They have just given me the texture I needed and were the perfect match to the “Summer at the Seaside” collection colors and patterns.
It was a sunny Saturday morning at the beggining of March. I wanted to take some cute pictures so I dressed up my kids and let them play. I love those photos as I have both of kids together. Usually it’s extremely difficult to have them both on one picture. I made a mini album using “My Private Happiness” what is also an appropriate title for that scrapbook. I used all kind of papers (12×12, 6×6 and 6×12 as well). And tags of course! I cut out some shapes so that my mini album is not just a square one. I added some decorations like crotchet flowers, a tiny bell and some matching inscriptions. I also recycled my beloved pruple Tshirt. It’s worn out but I altered it a little bit. Now I’ve got some purple flowers and strings to bind the mini album!
Beautiful papers of “The Bright Side of Life” collection are great for mini albums. As basis of my “folder” I used one paper 12×12 inches, cut in half. Through joining both halves I got another pocket (for additional photos or notes). When folded, the album’s dimensions are 4×6 inches and they make space big enough for six photos (3,6×5,2 inches) and 3 pages of memorial descriptions. I mixed some cut out elements, journaling’s pieces and a couple of other add-ons and cooked up idyllic and romantic mini album.
