1. Print out those photos.
I printed mine at 4x4 inches, which is also the size that I will be using for my album. I like to print my photos with a small white border around the edges and just use my normal print settings to select the "bordered" option when printing.
2. Trim your papers and gather journaling cards.
After you have your photos printed, the next step is to trim your favorite My Mind's Eye papers to 4x4 inches. While you have your supplies out, shuffle through the journaling cards and pick the ones that coordinate with your papers. I chose one card for each photo since I am planning on have a photo and a journaling card on each spread.
3. Attach the journaling cards to the base pages.
Easy peasy! Now your base pages are all ready to go!
4. Adhere the photos to the back of the base pages.
Be sure to pay attention to the orientation of the journaling cards to make sure they are facing in the correct direction. Now is also the perfect time to coordinate your photos with the sayings on the cards.
Grab your MME embellishments and add a little pop and dimension to your photos and journaling cards. As you will see, I kept my pages rather simple, but really, anything goes here!
6. Bind your mini album.
I wanted to do something a little different than book rings, so I decided to use my Bind-It-All to bind my pages. You could easily use ribbon, book rings or twine to hold your pages together.
And now your mini album is complete! Yay!
Here is a look at my finished book:
