Mini Album Faithbook Idea

Happy Good Friday!

Have you been to Michael’s lately? They have some gorgeous new scrapbooking collections from Prima, so I went shopping!!!! First, I picked up some of these:

First Blush by Prima, available at Michael’s

I loooooove this new collection, and I’m especially proud of the papers by Doris Castle and Dianne Rigdon, two talented digital designers I have been lucky to work with in the past! The flowers and other embellishments are also as lovely as can be! I will be stopping back at Michael’s again tomorrow (with a 30% off your entire purchase coupon) to pick up some of the new Nursery Tales collection too – perfect for me right now :)!

Here’s a project I made recently with the new First Blush collection by Prima. Since the paper pack has 96 papers, I’m sure there will many more fun projects to follow! I have been trying to memorize a group of Bible verses about four topics; Kindness, Gentleness, Patience and Self-Control – areas I would like to improve on in my life, especially since I will soon be the mommy of two ;). So, I printed out the scriptures and added them to this mini album. I love using an accordion album for projects like this, because I can display the open album along a shelf and look at it every time I pass by.

To add a calming, peaceful feel to the album, I included springtime flower photos I have taken at a nearby botanical garden recently. It was tempting to go overboard with the beautiful floral papers from the First Blush line, but I tried to stick to mostly muted green papers, so as not to overwhelm the flower photos in the album.

I am really happy with how this album came out, and I hope it will inspire me to learn these Bible verses and serve as a reminder of them for years to come.

Supplies: flowers, patterned paper, die-cut felt strip, stickers and crystals all from the First Blush Collection by Prima, available at Michael’s stores.¬† Album from Oriental Trading Company. Distress ink by Ranger.

    Good idea for memorizing verses–pretty, too. I remember memorizing verses for the same areas in my life when you kids were little!

    Love, Mom
