Stay Wild Mini Album

Hello friends! Today I wanted to share with you a fun mini album that I created of my dog Syd.

Syd and I go for walks near the river and forest near my home just about every day. I snapped these photos with my iPhone of the gorgeous colours of Autumn and thought I would create a fun mini album.

Recently, a very talented lady named Cat Martin opened up an Etsy store named The Minty Octopus. She designs gorgeous digital papers and elements and when I saw this new collection named Norwegian Wood, I knew I wanted it to create this album. Be sure to check out her Etsy store.

First I downloaded the papers and elements from the kit and resized them in my Silhouette Designer Edition software and used the Print And Cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo and printed them out on Epson Premium Matte Presentation Paper on my Epson home printer.

After I made the foundation of my album and embellished it with ribbon and the elements, I thought I would add several flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons to make it more fun. When I add binder rings to my mini albums, it gives me the opportunity to add more "lumps and bumps" to my pages without being concerned that the mini album will be too bulky to open and close the pages with ease.

Here are my pages:

I want to thank you for visiting my blog today. Have a great day and happy creating!
