American Crafts | Rise & Shine Mini Album

It's an exciting week on the American Crafts Blog, because the Design Team is featuring projects using the newest collection from Amy Tangerine, Rise & Shine!  This is such a fun collection and I love the happy colors and cute embellishments.  I used the collection, to create a small Mini Album, documenting a recent weekend trip.

1. Choose 3 different patterned papers from the Rise & Shine collection and your photos. Cut your paper to 6 inches wide and 4 inches high.

2. Use a scoring board, score each of your papers at 3 inches, down the center.

3. Create a vellum pocket to tuck away memorabilia, by machine stitching around the edges and leaving the top open.

4. Add a strip of Washi Tape to the outside and inside pages of your album.

5. Use a different color of Washi Tape to tape the vellum pocket and one of the Rise & Shine Die Cut tags into your album.

6. Once your pages, pocket, and tag are all put together, run the album through your sewing machine to stitch it all together.

7. Before adding your photos, use some of the Misting Stencils to embellish the pages in your album. I traced the triangle pattern and used gelatos with the chevron pattern. You can also use the Wooden Stamp set to add a custom look to your album.



This type of album would also be great for parties, sports or dance competitions!
