Making Memories Last with Mini Albums

Good morning, lovely G45ers!

We're in a mini album kind of mood. How about you? We have some amazing shares today. Alberto Juarez Diaz makes a splash with his By the Sea mini album. Then, we will share a simply saccheriferous Sweet Sentiments mini by Denise Hahn. What a fantastic day!

By the Sea is such a fun line to use for so many projects. Alberto makes it shine in the mini below!


Alberto takes us under the sea with this wonderful mini. He creates a porthole on the album front filled with fussy cut pieces from this new nautical collection. It makes us want to dive in! The adorable chipboard he includes on the side ties are by Gina Designs Chipboard. Just wait until you see the inside...




Love seeing how Alberto just uses fussy cut images from By the Sea to make this fantastic ocean scene. What an affordable, fun way to add so much depth to this project!






Alberto makes this mini even more dreamy with this pop-up scene! He fussy cut the lighthouse from the By the Sea signature page to make a dynamic scene. You can almost hear the waves!
