Design Team Wednesday: Stacy Cohen shares a summer mini!

Hello everyone! Stacy Cohen here today with a little mini album to share! Summer is ending soon and fall is right around the corner, but I’m not quite ready to put away all of my bright, summer-themed craft products and projects. I created a fall color-schemed mini album for the Scrapbook & Cards Today Fall 2016 issue last year.  The title was “Grateful” and it featured pictures of my two daughters. In case you missed it, here’s a snippet of the cover.

Since I have two daughters, I sometimes make two versions of scrapbook pages or mini albums when I’m showcasing photos of both of them or of our whole family.  That way they will both have the keepsakes when they’re older.  But it can get a little monotonous to make an exact duplicate of projects, so I always change up the colors, products and embellishments when making a double.

Here is a more summery version of the mini album.  I used bright hues of pink, green, blue and orange.

I like to “color outside of the lines” when I create mini albums, meaning I like the embellishments to hang over the edges of the pages. That way you get a little peak at what’s to come.

I used my favorite embellishments throughout the album: flowers and bling.

To give the album a lot of tactile appeal, I went totally lumpy bumpy and added a variety of textures like wood, metal, felt, fabric, etc.

Now I’m almost ready to move on to fall projects. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
