Summer Fun Mini Album

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!!

  1. LOVE this!!
    My brother is a DJ and his daughter is really into it too (she’s 9). This would make such a great gift for them. Thanks so much for sharing Lori!

  2. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch the holes (sorry I forgot to include this in my post). If the record is brittle it may crack.

  3. Love this! It’s so creative! And I’m so glad you added your note about leaving the record (circle) layer open while doing the letters. I am new to CCR and didn’t know how to make things the right size. That helps so much! Thank you!
