Thankful Mini Album

Hello there We R fans, Wendy Antenucci here today sharing a mini book I created.  I have always wanted to take the time to do a 30 day of Thankfulness book with my kids, thanks to the Cinch this year we will be documenting what we are thankful for.

I knew for this project I wanted somewhere to write our thanks and I also wanted to include pictures of different items/people that we are thankful for.  I also knew since my kids were going to be helping that it needed to be a simple concept for all ages.  I began by choosing two 4×6 sentiment cards from the Wildflower collection and the High Five collection that best shared the vision of this book.

To share some written thoughts I chose to cut down the Typecast notepad to a 4×4 size.  On each note paper piece I included a sticker from the Wildflower collection to add some color and interest.  I also included a few 3×4 sentiment cards that would help focus our thanks for that day.

I used the 4×4 waterfall photo sleeves for my pictures; by turning the photo sleeve I was able to cinch the longer end into my book allowing photos to be added in easily as we progress through the book.

Designer tip: To keep a mini album do able for a family, keep it simple!  Add in a few stickers for interest/color, but keep most items flat so that the album is more durable for little hands.
