Beginnings Mini-Album

Happy Thursday!   Many of my regular followers may realize that I am not a big mini-album creator.  I love them and really appreciate the talented women at Quick Quotes who create AMAZING mini-albums, but I struggle with them.  Today I am sharing how easy it is to create with the Quick Quotes Beginnings 6"x8" Wire Bound Book, even for me!

In my previous Quick Quotes video, I shared the Beginnings Wire Bound Book in its entirety. Today I am showcasing completed pages from the Beginnings Wire Bound Book and a video tutorial on how I altered some of the pages in this fantastic album from Quick Quotes.

The cover of this album was simply altered by adding Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Blue Hawaiian and Baja Blue. These colors created a wonderful sky effect! A few pearls were added to middle of the resist flowers that on the cover 

All the pages in the Beginnings Wire Bound Book are 6"x8". I altered my album to have different size pages and created a couple of pockets for journaling tags.  You can see how I did this in my video:

To decorate the album I used several instagram photos of my daughter, Lily, and the May Club Q Page Layout Kit.  This kit came with lots of great papers and embellishments.  Plenty to do this whole album!  The edges of each page are inked with Blue Hawaiian Powder Puff Chalking Ink.


This album is fun and spirited just my Lily!  It really is a reflection of who she is at this moment. I love how easy the Beginnings Wire Bound Album and the May Club Q Page Layout Kit made this project come together!
