Today we are sharing with you a collaboration project from Miss Mama Mint, a wonderful scrapbooking and mixed media brand from Spain. Be sure to look out for more collaboration projects from Gelli Arts® + Miss Mama Mint in March!
Valentine’s day is coming up and i’m sure you want to surprise your loved one with a special gift! What better gift than one that you made yourself. This beautiful album is the perfect idea to save all of those photos of unforgettable moments that you have made together.
So let’s get down to making the album. It’s super easy, just follow my step by steps below!
For this project, I used products from the Natura collection by Miss Mama Mint and myGelli Arts® gel printing plate.
I also used Deco Art Americana premium acrylic paints. I chose the colors that went best with the Natura collection, but you can use the colors you like best, or the ones that go best with the paper you are using.
Step by Step:
1. Cut an A4 sheet in half. Draw a heart that occupies as much of the half sheet as possible. Cut the heart out. That will be the template for the entire album.
Trace the heart on a piece of cardboard two times and cut it out with an X-Acto knife or scissors.
2. With the same heart template, cut 2 hearts from each sheet of the scrapbooking papers. Reserve 3 sheets of paper to cover the album covers.
With those 3 sheets, we lined the front and back cover that we had cut from the cardboard.
3. With the Gelli® plate, we will print on the back of the cut out hearts. The Miss Mama Mint papers are blank on one side so I decorated it by gel printing with acrylic paint and Miss Mama Mint stencils.
4-. Once I finished decorating the album sheets, I bound the album with a spiral using a cinch.
To decorate the interior of the album, I used some diecuts and seals from the Miss Mama Mint Natura collection.
Here are some of the pages I made:
5. To decorate the album cover, I use vellum paper, diecuts, and stickers from Miss Mama Mint.
Once you finish decorating, you’re done! All you have left to do is put your photos and memories inside.
