Picture My Life Scrapbooking Cards on a Mini Album Page

Mini albums can be just the thing when you want a quick photo album about a certain event, for a gift, or any number of reasons!

The last time I was at my mom’s she was saying something about an photo album I had made, and I didn’t remember what it was until I saw it. It was an 8×8 album and was filled with 6×6 digital layouts centered on each page. I had completely forgotten about them! They was such a variety of the whole family and I since I barely remembered them, I was afraid I had no idea where they were, so I could print more. However I did remember that I had created 4 layouts on a 12×12 sheet, and cut them apart. I still haven’t found them, and if I ever want more, I may have to scan hers!

I decided to break out my new Chantilly Picture My Life pocket scrapbooking cards to make extra quick work of a little page of my granddaughter while she was having photos taken for her near ball team. I found one 4×6 card, and one 3×4 to use, and cut out a 6×6 piece of Hollyhock card stock for the background.

I used the decorative card as part of the background. The journaling card was cut into two pieces to tuck behind the photo. The top, which says, “The Best Thing About Today,” was tucked in at the top and the bottom of the card to use for a bit of journaling space.

Then I simply stamped Way Cute from the True to Life stamp set in Hollyhock ink; punched it out with a 1″ circle punch and applied it with a foam dimensional. Done!

Pocket scrapbooking cards can be used in a variety of ways. I hope you’ll try using them on a traditional layout!
