Because the Black / White kit is so versatile, I decided that I’d go ahead and use it on whatever project I happened to have slated to work on next–and that was my Michigan mini album! I made a bunch of new pages for the beginning of the album using Black / White embellishments throughout. I used things from both the September Planner and Embellishment kit.
I wanted a full 6×8 photo of my daughter Eliza on the plane, because it was her first ever plane ride. I bordered it in washi tape. This 3 ring binder mini has pocket and 6×8 pages, but I also wanted to hole punch a few things directly in. This works great for memorabilia like this plane ticket.
I wanted to use 4×6 cards for journaling, but I was out of page protectors with 4×6 spots. So I added a transparency with gold foil throughout the album and adhered a card to the front and back with washi tape from my Freckled Fawn stash. This way I can see both sides of the card and get in journaling!
I used the black and glitter white enamel shapes to fill in the spaces in my title on the first journaling card.
Then I used letters from the March 2016 Kit and the gold foil epoxy flowers to decorate the front of the other card.
Label stickers with chipboard phrases were a good way to add a bit to a page with two photos.
I used a sticky note from the planner kit to add journaling space to the photo on the bottom, then added a printed wood chip as a title.
I had a lot of fun with the page with all of the 2×2 pockets. I alternated photos and puffy camera sticker in each square on both sides.
I added another 4×6 card directly to the album by punching holes and added a resin flower with a gemstone to the corner to make the plain card a little more fun.
I love the look of layers when different sizes and transparencies are added in minibooks.
Another page of just photos, so this time I added one of the gold foil stickers from the planner kit to a photo.
I added a tiny bit of extra journaling with label stickers on these photos, but my favorite part is using back-to-back label stickers stuck partially on a journaling card to make it long enough to read the rings so I could add a horizontal 4×6 journaling card in. Think outside of the box to make your products work for you!
I’m having so much fun with this kit and I can’t wait to keep going.
