Thursday Theme... a quick and frugral mini album.

I wanted to share a fun idea for using the July/ August Theme kit today! It is not too late to pick this kit up for yourself so you can create what I am sharing today, too!


I had seen all sorts of baby mini albums all over the web using the new baby Crate lines and wanted to try one for myself using only the Theme kit, along with some basic supplies you may have in your stash, or around your home....

First I gathered everything up....


the July/August 2012 Little Red Scrapbook Theme Kit
the Basic Cardstock add on from Little Red Scrapbook
12 doilies
a pint or quart sized berry container
a bit of twine

First, I cut all of the white cardstock from the basic cardstock add on into 12 pieces measuring 5 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches.

Next, I cut 12 pieces of the patterned paper from the theme kit to measure 5 1/4 by 3 1/4 inches.

I took the Crate Little Bo Peep Tag Cuts paper and cut out all of the tags. Then, I chose my 12 favorites for my mini pages.

I also cut several circles in assorted sizes and colors, but mainly used the 1 1/4 inch punched light pink circles on most of the little pages.

I gathered the doilies from my stash, the gems from the theme kit and one berry container.

Then, I just layered them up, fast and easy. I used the same basic pattern and that made it so fun. It was so quick to create a year of memories for my little girl!

I also added some machine stitching to finish up my little pages and give them that last touch to really make them feel complete to me.

I hope you will run over and grab your own kit so you can create something for your little girl (or any sweet baby girl you know), too!

Have a lovely day!
