I joined a mini album group swap last September. It was organized by Laura Denison from Following the Paper Trail. We had 7 swap page designers in each group. The book pattern and 6 pages were all identical which Laura designed. The pages had pockets and fold outs with lots of room for creativity (as she says "real estate"). We assembled the book and covered the front and inside & back and inside covers. We included patterned papers, card stock & embellishments of our choice and sent our albums across the country to the various designers in our group. It was very well organized. As I finished my pages I would send them to the next person in the line up. When my album returned- I was so thrilled with the project. Each page was so beautifully done. The designers were given free reign to add their own embellishments, tags, ribbons, buttons, bows etc....from their own stash. A special thank you to those gals who made this album so, so special.
We sent along a a "journal" to have everyone share a little about themselves. I chose to use the Dress Up Framelits and have each person jot down a few words to keep in Addy's Album. They looked precious with the Hung Up Cute Clips Hangers.
When the book returned, it was time to finish the cover with the Spiral Flower Die done in DSP, Pearls, & Seam Binding Ribbon.
Here's the best part..... pictures of Addy & her album! It is ready to be filled with memories, photos, love & laughter!
