I'm so blessed to be on the Crate Paper design creative team, I get to work with some amazing products & the 'Bloom' collection by Maggie Holmes is one of them. The Bloom collection has the most amazing flowers, prints & sweet embellishments, making it one of my favourite collections to work with ever. Today I am sharing with you a mood mini album I've been working on, its for my studio & I hope to add to it over time, kind of like an inspiration board but a mini album version. Brilliant right?
I had a light bulb moment when I looked at the 6x6 paper pad, the pad already comes with a small hole on the top of each piece of paper, perfect for adding those metal rings.
Next I selected a few favourite papers and then cut them down by about 1 inch on each side using my American Crafts trimmer, then I added them to the metal clip, not randomly either, I always do a big pattern like the flowers then a plain pattern such as the gingham, this evens out the 'fuss' if that makes sense.
Next I sorted through my products & pulled out sticker quotes from the collection, tags, embellishments, lace, ribbon, tassels and a wooden hoop that I had been hoarding since forever (also a Crate Paper product) & then started adding and layering on each piece of scrapbooking paper. This is always the fun part.
My new mood mini album has pride of place on my gold picture stand right next to where I work on my computer to inspire me each day. So sweet.
I hope I've inspired you to start your own mood mini album. You can find all these products on the Crate Paper website.
