Mini-album with 7gypsies and Architextures

Mini-albums are not just for the photos and memories; sometimes, we make them to just have something small and pretty and keep little bits and bobs picked up on our travels. You can use a collection or scraps of various collections to make one of the mini treasure-holders. There is no right or wrong way of making one.

Lena Holmstrom is our CCB master mini-book maker. She used a mix of various papers from 7gypsies and loads of Architextures elements as embellishments. The album is full of mini pockets and folds, pockets and flaps. So much place to hide little notes, tickets or receipts that bring memories of fun moments…

‘I wanted to make an album using mainly 7gypsies products. It has 13 pages and lots of pockets for pictures, journalling and any other memories that you want to keep safe.’ – says Lena about her project.
