Hi crafty friends. It’s Kristine and I’m back today with my final project using the Simple Vintage Coastal collection by Simple Stories. With the tropical images and soft, yet bold color palate, the collection is fun to work with! I love when paper collections are versatile and ideal for various paper crafting projects. So far, I have made a card, a tag, a decorative candle trio, and a layout with these gorgeous papers. Each of these projects are posted on the FotoBella blog. Next up, the most detailed project. Today, I want to share with you the mini album I created, perfect for any beach vacation.
Whether you have a stack of photos from previous beach destination vacations or you’re planning your next tropical getaway, this paper gives off major tropical vibes!
How to Use the Entire Collection of Products in Your Mini Album
Further detail can be added to the mini album pages with the various embellishments. For example, the Sticker Book is ideal for adding labels to photo mats with the catchy beach phrases. And the Foam Stickers give a bit of extra dimension to an otherwise flat page.
The Bits and Pieces pack is full of fussy cut images. These pieces are ideal for adding to the sides of photo mats for your photos to tuck behind.
For the cover and spine of my albums, I like to use chipboard pieces to add slight dimension while remaining flat. The Chipboard Stickers are perfect for doing so, and the Decorative Brads give an added bit of texture.
For a more in-depth view of my mini album pages, please check out my YouTube video (below). It showcases these gorgeous tropical papers, and the subtle use of the collection extras elevate the pages to the next level. Don’t forget to check out the FotoBella online store to purchase this Simples Stories collection and to see all of the other goodies in stock today!
