First up on the Five Must-Make Mini-Album series is the "How We Met" mini-album.
I decided to record the story of how my husband and I met and the journey we've been on together since in an 8"x 8" album that I presented to him one Valentine's Day.
I got the idea because I always wondered about how my grandparents had met, what they were doing in their lives when they met, what things happened along the way, etc. I love romantic things like that and wanted to record my own romance (G rated, of course, for those worried...).
To get started, I chose a red 8" x 8" album from Colorbok and gathered up various related papers in cream, red, pink, black and patterned. I had various "love" type embellishments that I used along the way. I had collected these in a 12"x12" Iris case just to prepare for this album.
Tip #1: Collect all your papers and embellishments together in a 12"x12" Iris case...that way you have all your materials together.
Tip #2: Consider making a timeline by year, showing where you lived, or other significant events as they occurred.

Do you have an album like this? Are you thinking about making one?
Check back tomorrow for another Must-Make Mini-Album; it's stellar!
