'Pick Your Own' Mini Album | Hip Kit Club | October 2020 Kits

Monday 30 November 2020


Hey everyone! I have another mini album to share today, for Hip Kit Club using the October Kits. You can find the October kits on the Hip Kit Club website here.

I have also used a mixture of different cut files from the October Downloads, specifically Floral Pumpkin, Autumn Fun, Grateful, Leaf Wreath and Pumpkin Face.

To make the mini album box itself, I was inspired by the Accordion album cut file by Paige Evans. I didn't use it here but if you have a Silhouette and want a shortcut, definitely check out that cut file. I adapted this idea to suit what I wanted but the principle is the same. I took two strips of patterned paper and concertina folded them every 1/2 inch - these were the sides of the box. I then took another piece of the same patterned paper and cut a wide piece and scored it twice so I had a base and two ends. I secured the concertina sides between the two ends and put dividers in between each fold. I then added cut file pumpkins to the front and the back of the box. This style of mini book allows for the inserts to be really chunky, which is just what I like!

I then set about making all the little inserts for each of the pockets. I made three envelopes, a tag book bound with a book ring complete with paper tassel and paper bead, and several other cards make using the exclusive Hip Kit Club cut files.

This process video shows the basic box being made together with the inserts. I add all my photos and embellishments off screen and then towards the end of the video there is a flip through of the complete album including photos and journaling.

Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed this Mini Album - it's my absolutely favourite one to date! Enjoy the process video below.

Happy scrapping
