I had lots of fun this week creating a project for a scrapbook retreat I’m helping organize later this month. Chalk art is big this days, and I’ve wanted to try a stamped project using the chalk art look.
Even if you’re not into scrapbooking your entire life, mini albums can be a lot of fun to make because they are quick and easy to display. I have a stack of minis that I’ve made for different occasions, given as gifts, or made for my kids, and they are looked at over and over again.
This album uses an assortment of die cut pages. The three holes for binding match but otherwise I have a mix of sizes and it’s cute! The chalkboard look comes from using white pigment ink and distressing black cardstock with a white core. Close to My Heart’s cardstock all (except white & Colonial White) has a white core, and it’s great for effects like this!
We had a family photo session this summer while visiting my husband’s family in Saskatchewan, and this album turned out to be a great way to show off some of the most gorgeous (and silliest) shots from the evening.
I’ll be making this available as a kit soon, so even if you can’t make the first annual Paper Therapy Scrapbook Retreat, you can make this album. Thanks for looking!
