Crate Paper – Love Mini Album

Hello CP fans. I’m back to share a new project created with the super cute La La Love collection. I decided to go with a mini album to document some sweet moments between my kids. Although I feel like they’re always arguing, fighting, screaming at each other, these photos show how much they love one another and the fun that they have when they spend time together. It’s not all bad after all 😉 Thank goodness for such lovely memories!

There are a few steps to this mini album, but it’s very easy to make and comes together pretty quickly.

I started by trimming four sheets of my favorite patterned paper to measure 4”x8”. I then scored them right at the 4” mark and folded them in half.

For the cover, I used a 11.75”x4.25” piece of paper, which I first scored at 4” and 4.25”, then again at 3.25” and 3.5” after rotating it 180 degrees.

I adhered the pages back to back with strong adhesive before placing them on the inside of the cover, like in the photo below.

Once the base of the album was ready, it was time to create some frames for my photos. I used the Frame Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers, which made it fast and easy. What I love about this tool is that I can vary the size of the frames to fit my needs. I used one of them to make a shaker pocket for the front of the album. I love how it turned out! The foam adhesive under the frame also allowed me to hide the ends of the ribbon that keep the album together.

Another element I repeated throughout my mini is small pockets to hold other photos, some journaling and sentiments from the collection. I stitched them down to make sure they stayed in place. You’ll see stitching details here and there on several pages as well.

Below you can see more close-ups.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I enjoyed making this mini album, and I sure hope I have given you some inspiration for your next project with the darling La La Love collection.

Until next time.

  1. What a sweet idea, I fully understand the feeling that our children seem to have it in for each other more as they get older but when push comes to shove they do love each other, honest ! Great collection of papers. I think I may go out something together, just to remind them that that can get on together… Occasionally hehehe.
