Today, I’m going to share with you some ideas on how I used the Kraft Mini Book to create a “HER” family album (meaning my family. I’ll do one for Rick as “HIS” family next.). I just love the protected pages! It contains 10 protectors in 4 x 6 size (which would hold up to 10 photos or Picture My Life Cards) and 3 x 4 size (which would hold up to (20) 3 x 4 photos or Picture My Life Cards (PML will be the abbreviation below)). These mini books are only $9.95! The kicker is this: one package of PML cards works for TWO books!
I’m going to focus on the KRAFT Mini Book today and show you a few of the pages I created using the Picture My Life Cards for Avonlea. The best part is you can earn this book as part of the Year >> Noted Promotion shown here. All of these great items can be yours for only $10 with a $50 purchase! Yes, you can purchase the Mini Book on it’s own for $9.95, but the goodies in the Year >> Noted are worth $34!
The other products I used (and this is where you can be creative in picking out your matching theme to go in your Kraft Album) can be found HERE. They are the Picutre My Life Cards in a variety of themes for $8.95 and $14.95 and each one will work for TWO books! Love it!
Let’s get started! Here’s my cover (sorry the photo is a little blurry but I’m too anxious to share it with you). I did take a few cards to make the cover:
This next photo is the inside cover and my 4 x 6 family photo. I chose to printe all my photos in black and white and I used Studio J to develop all of them (love this program!):
This is one of my favorite pages because of the adorable photo of Scott and Jack. Using the PML Cards make it even more fun!
Using the reverse side of the PML card gives me an opportunity to journal:
I just need to find a good photo of my Mom so I can add it. Even though I didn’t have it at my finger tips … it did not stop me from creating this book. It will only push me to get it done!
I’ve had many great times with my sister, cousin and Aunt Flo! These memories and photos are priceless:
I’m close with my niece Christie and her family and love these photos:
I do have more pages filled with cousins, family shots of all of us, adding journaling as well. It will be a great keepsake to share when I see them. But here is the last page and inside back cover of the book. Using the PML cards, I can cut them a part and layer them to complete any look:
Just to give you an idea .. here’s a photo of some of the PML Cards I used to create this book. Whether you use all of it (one or both sides); cut it a part to layer … or cover it with a photo so you get the mat out of it … the choice is yours!
There are so many themes to choose from to create your own mini album using the PML (Picture My Life) Cards:
- Baby: Babycakes in neutral colors
- Boys/sports using Later Sk8r
- Girls using Chantilly
- Christmas using Pear & Partridge
- School using Chalk It Up
- Family photos: Avonlea … OR … Skylark
- Beach can be created using Surfs Up … OR … Seaside Cards
- Wedding: For Always or Heartstring
- Travel: Wanderful … OR … Balloon Ride
- Misc.: Laughing Lola, Hopscotch
Well, I hope you enjoyed this presentation. I know many of you love to create mini albums and this one is sure to please. Stay tuned for the Black Mini album and presentation on how I used it for Nick and Daria’s Wedding! It’s stunning! I’ll have these samples with me at all the cropping venues, so check it out when you’re there. Feeling inspired? ….
