I love mini albums, always have and I’m pretty sure I always will. It is so satisfying to start and finish a whole project in just a couple days. My latest project was an Easter Mini Album, and I absolutely love it.
Check out a video walk through of my mini album here.
This album was inspired by Stephanie Bryan and her 2015 Project Life Mini Albums, she did a video series last year with a different mini album each month. I have watched her album flips throughs maybe 10 times each and I just love those mini albums. So much so that I have thought about changing to monthly mini books for my project life too. Can’t make that huge of a change yet, but I did enjoy making my Easter album in her style.
If you haven’t seen any of her work I highly recommend checking it out, she is amazing. She likes to use a lot of different size pages and photos usually without page protectors. Working outside of page protectors was a big leap for me, I just worry about what it’s going to look like in a couple years or a couple decades. But I took the plug and made this entire album without page protectors.
Stephanie also likes to print smaller size photos with white boarders, and I just love that look. Figuring out how to do that was a whole other story, check out my video explaining how I did it here.
So I had a style, loose plan, and photos, time to start the album. I pulled some plain pastel color cardstock, project life cards from the Becky Higgins Super Cute Value Kit and some embellishments from the March Elle Studio Kit.
I keep things pretty simple and focused on the photos. I also added quite a bit of journaling throughout.

I really enjoyed putting together this mini album and it only took me about 2 days to put it together, maybe about 5 hours. Not including the 2-3 hours it took to print all the photos and the 4-5 days I spent thinking about it.
Hope you enjoy, thanks.
