Hey everyone! Maggie here with another way to use up those Documenter cards and embellishments!I recently returned from a "girls' trip" of sorts with some of my very best friends. We are all scrappers, so we took a ton of photos and made a ton of memories and I'm sure we'll all be documenting our trip...but I thought it would still be fun to send each of them a little card mini-album.
Here's how I started...Using my phone, the PicFrame App and my Canon Selphy printer, I printed out a number of small photos that reminded me of our time together, as well as a photo of each of my friends with me.
I cut the photos down and spread out some of the 3x4 cards from the Arendal Documenter Kit.
Next I started adhering the photos to each of the cards (1 photo per card), separating them into sets of cards (1 set per friend) so that each of my friends would get one of each of the different photos I printed.
I stitched down one side of each of the photos to add a little texture and because I just really like the look of the stitching. Plus I think it really "grounds" the photo to the card.
Once all of my photos were stitched I used the Documenter stamp set and the Mega Date Roller to add a few sentiments and the date to each set of cards.
Next I stapled a few of the Nes Verk embellishment tags to a few of the cards.
Once my stacks were finished, I punched a hole in the corner of each of the stacks...
...and bound them with some seam binding and one of the rubber cactuses from the kit (oh my heavens those are adorable).
I'm hoping my friends will like these little "albums," and that they will realize just how special and important these memories with them are to me.
Don't have a trip you'd like to document in this way? No worries! How about creating a thank you, happy birthday or "just because you're awesome and I wanted to create something for you" little card album?
