I made this really easy mini album using the Gypsy Moments line for a friend of mine. She has been suffering from a lot of health issues and has been a bit sad and down so I thought a little hand made gift would cheer her up.
I cut the base from Carton Kraft paper and covered it with patterned papers. I chose to keep the design quite simple and only used some cut out quotes, tags and hemp to embellish it. I left plenty of space inside the album for her to write down her thoughts and feelings.
Making your own album base is good idea if you don´t find one that fit for your project. I do this all the time, but if you want to use a ready made there is plenty of different types in the Canvas Corp Brands online store.
A fun detail from the back of one of the tags – this little sweetie hopefully will cheer my friend up!
Thanks for stepping by today. If you want to do your own mini album similar to the one I created you can use the shopping list below!
In every soul appears the heart of a Gypsy: we wander, we travel, we dance and we sing. And while we wander, travel, dance and sing we experience moments— moments that make for memories that last a minute, a day, a month, a year… These moments are those that occur when everyone’s watching, and those that occur when no one’s watching. They’re those special little moments that present themselves in the uniqueness of our one-of-a-kind lives. A point in time that makes you blush, grin, smirk, tear, think, breath, dance, dream, wish, sigh, and helps you realize who you are. These moments are Gypsy Moments. Gypsy Moments are meant to be captured and remembered, no matter how loud, goofy, irresponsible, dramatic, euphoric, regretful or blissful they are. It’s that moment you cheat and get a scone with your “skinny” vanilla latte. It’s that moment where you have the perfect words to say exactly what you need to say. It’s that moment when lady luck is on your side. It’s a day where you keep tripping for no apparent reason. It’s a day filled with moments that make you want to laugh. It’s a day filled with moments that make you want to cry. These moments are so ‘Gypsy.’
