Hello ~ Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway!!
I found these 45 records at the thrift shop and thought they would make fun mini album covers!!
I re-created the record on my Gypsy using two circles sized 7 inches and 3 inches.
I used vinyl for SUMMER FUN using the font Cherry Limeade sized to .75 inches.
I sized my letters by leaving the layer with the “record” on it open. That way I knew my title would fit.
I cut out 3D flowers from Atriste sized from 3 – 5 inches out of sheet music and cardstock.
I inked the sheet music to match the cardstock. I used my tweezers to roll up the flowers and liquid glue to adhere them. I attached them to the cover with glue dots.
I traced and cut out chipboard circle pages and covered them with sheet music. I painted the edges of the pages with a bright blue acrylic paint.
I made some photo mats and cut out some flip flops and beach tags to attach to the corners.
I cut out a wave and some fish and tied the tops with twine.
I like to make a pocket for my mini albums and include tags or coordinating paper scraps.
I cut out layered flowers from Mother’s Day Bouquet sized from .88 – 2.53 inches. I cut them out of sheet music. Cutting did not go well as the paper is on the thin side, but I got enough to make my flowers.
I cut out some images from Life is A Beach. The flip flops are 1.82 inches. The tags are 1.75 inches. The gecko is 3 inches. I cut the images out in cardstock.
I tied a little twine on the tags.
I attached the gecko to the back cover.
I hope you like my unique mini album. I had a lot of fun making it!!
