Mini album with Savannah O'Gwynn **LOTS of photos

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here to share mini album using the Paper Made Bakery  June kitCherry Blossoms

Here is a picture of the PMB June kit,  Cherry Blossom-- be sure to get your kit HERE
I needed to make a fun book to share my appreciation/love for my husband yesterday (it's been six years since he proposed to me! One of the best days ever!)

I'm new to mini albums--I've never created one before! So I used a technique/tutorial that I shared with my 4th grade students each year. I figured if they could do it--so could I :) 

**Please email me at {sbmmhoover at yahoo dot com} if you have any questions! 

Here's how to make this mini album: 
Using full sheets from the Basic Grey paper pad in the PMB June kit--
**You should have scored four lines at this point.
You will fold the top part down as well:) When you are finished folding, it makes a square.

Once papers and top/bottom pieces are attached, you can add pictures, journaling, embellishments, etc. **My pictures are no bigger than 3" square. I also suggest gluing the pictures down in the "red square" from the picture above--that way your picture will stay flat and not get bent when folding the mini album. 
I used about five or six sheets of paper for my album. 
I added journaling after I took these photos:) 

I closed the mini album with some ribbon included in the PMB June kit. I also added the butterfly and metal embellishment as a topper. LOVE:) 

That's it for me todayYou can NOW sign up for the Baker's Dozen subscription for the Fresh Baked kits. Your kit will arrive to you in your mailbox every month and you get a sweet little discount too!! Check out all the details HERE
