Folded Square Mini | First Dance


I have a BIG TIME scrappy crush on Paige Taylor Evans, I love every single little thing that she creates. I love her style, the colors she uses and how she thinks outside of the box when it comes to her designs on everything from her scrapbook layouts to her mini-albums. When I saw her Folded Square Mini-Album I knew that it was one that I wanted to try my hand at and I'm so glad that I did. I love it!!!

For my first go at using this design for a mini, I decide to use photos that I already had printed out. I had several photos that I printed awhile back of Zoey and her friends getting ready for their first middle school dance (from when they were in the 6th grade). They were 2x3 inches and I had enough of them to house in a mini-album.

All of the papers and most of the embellishments that I ended up using are from past and present Cocoa Daisy kits.

This is such a fun design for a base for a mini-book! I love the dimension that is created with the folded paper from the base of the book as well as the challenge that's presented of how to use that space.

It's kind of a grey day here so you can't get the exact hues of the colors going on here with these papers and different elements but you get a pretty decent idea I think.

This orange spread was especially tricky to capture with my lighting today.

Here is a picture of the album opened up and clipped with a mini clothespin. So pretty!!

You can download the digital file for creating the base of this book from the Silhouette Design store HERE if you are interested.

I can't wait to make another one of these albums, I have a feeling it's going to be one of my go-to designs for mini's now!

We're gearing up for another snow storm here so I'm off to go get some groceries. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
