Just Add Cake Mini Album

I haven't scrapped in a long while, but lately I've been feeling like I'd like to start again.  Last month, a scrappy friend asked me to run a workshop for her & I thought it would be fun to make a scrap themed gift. I'd pinned this cute little mini fold book ages ago (as you do) & thought it would be perfect. I made my version with 9 x 9cm square pages & here it is.
The base album is totally made with crumb cake cardstock, The colour palette had to suit boys & girls (my friend has 1 of each) so I thought the Just Add Cake DSP pack fitted the bill perfectly. I covered the base in different sheets from the DSP pack (so easy when they all match). I kept the embellishments flat & simple using stamped words representing family & love (from Fabulous Phrases) punched with the modern label to let the pics & words star. Here are some more pics...
Sorry the pics are a bit dark The weather was unfortunately very blah at the time & it very tricky to hold & photograph! I had such a blast making this little book, so I will definitely be trying more. My friend said she loved it too, so I was very happy all round.
Well it's my bedtime now, so thanks very much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed seeing my little book. If you have any questions, just leave me a comment.
Inky wishes, Di

These are awesome mini albums Di. I've made a couple myself but always kept the base colour plain - I do love the brightness and interest you've added by using the DSP. xxx
