Don’t you just think warm weather and lots of tropical fun when you see this Island Oasis designer series paper from the Summer Mini catalogue?
Here I used the Island Oasis paper with the coordinating stamp set, Tropical Party, to make a mini album. This album is so simple to create.
I ran a square of the Island Oasis designer series paper through my Big Shot with the Petal Card die. Next, I cut a piece of cardstock to 2-1/2" x 10" and scored at 2-1/2", 5" and 7-1/2" to make the foldout page inside the album.
Lastly, I cut a strip of Old Olive cardstock 3/4" x 7-1/4" to make the belly band closure.
This is the album open to the front page of the foldout cardstock piece. I stamped the front panel with Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie flowers from the Tropical Party stamp set.
This picture shows the inside page extended. I cut squares of designer paper to 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" and adhered them to the foldout page between the score lines. Then I added a stamped and punched circle and square as embellishments.
