Treasured Memories Mini Album - Imaginarium Designs

Hello, all of you blogger peeps! I have my October Imaginarium Designs project to share with you today.

I used chipboard to make a 5x7 mini album in a school theme. My favorite Graphic 45 Collection is An ABC Primer (ok, my favorite today), so I used it to decorate my mini.

I created the covers and the spine out of chipboard, which I then covered with cardstock and printed paper. This is the same technique I used in this tutorial HERE.

The Imaginarium Designs clock chipboard shapes are so amazing that I think I use them on almost every project!

I covered the clock with Mix'd Media Inx Black and clear embossing powder. I used the same technique on the phrase.  For the girl silhouettes, I used Colorbox Wicked Black ink to ink them up.

The ruler from the G45 paper was perfect for the spine of my mini. (Sorry about the photos! Someone messed with my camera settings...again!)

I think this paper is too cute for words!

Here is a back view of the book.

I created some pockets and some "pages" out of tags, envelopes, and some "school" paper for journaling. Those silhouette chipboard shapes are perfect!

She's perfect for my envie flap! This envelope can hold photos or more journaling cards.

I trimmed some lined paper and some graph paper and added it to the mini. Very "schoolish."

To make this bow, I used the Bow Easy tool to make three bows. Then I glued them together with Fabri-tac. I tied some twine to the button and glued it to the top of the bow. Easy peasy! I used Fabri-tac to glue the bow and G45 tags to the clock.

Thanks for looking!
