finally! i finished my summer mini book at the end of october and i completely love it.
i picked up one of elise blaha's summer kits and also took her mini book workshop in september. i think the combination of the two really helped me to focus and not just throw anything and everything into this book. sure, there are a TON of photos, but what else would you expect from me? what i'm happiest with, is the cohesion that the kit and my edited choices make.
i used elise's tip of adding grosgrain ribbon to mark each month's title page. i found this super cute & summer-y ribbon at kate's paperie. i love this little detail. while the book is mainly photos, i did add in some paper here and there and also have a few transparency pages thrown in to the mix to hold tickets to movies and events. add in some labels and graph paper for journaling, a map, some postcards and lots of washi tape, and you have a super fun mini book.
here are a few of my favorite pages:
mini books are such a fun and easy way to keep track of memories. they can be as fancy or as simple as you want to make them. i can hardly wait to get started on my autumn book!
