Chipboard Mini Album

Hello and Happy New Year! 

Just before Christmas I treated myself to the Hey Crafty Girl collection by Simple Stories. Great service and very fast delivery from Paper, Pen and Plan. So over the festive period, when I had a few spare minutes, this was a fun, easy project to pick up and do a little at a time.

As the whole collection is craft themed I thought I would use the album to keep a record of my pens and paints. The black alphas I used here are Thickers and not included in the Hey Crafty Girl collection, I wanted to have a nice bold heading! 

I am keeping the album handy on my craft desk and I will see at a glance what colours I have in which make. 

On this page is a record of the fine liners that I use in my daily journal.

 For paints I made a little 'envelope' to keep the sample cards in. I painted a block of each colour onto watercolour card and once dry drew a black outline.

And finally the back page. Crafty Girls Rock!

So cute! I love making small chipboard albums. I’ve even made them with corrugated cardboard from boxes. Thanks for sharing your creation!
