Adventure Awaits Mini Album | Guest Designing for Paige Evans

Tuesday 6 April 2021


Hey everyone, today I am thrilled to be guest designing for Paige Evans. I'm using the Go the Scenic Route collection and cut files available from the Silhouette Design Store:

·       Suitcase Mini Album

·       Cactus,

·       Cactus in a Teacup

·       Map

·       Geotag Heart

·       Adventure

I have re-sized the cut file - this was a little tricky as this made the cut file wider than 12" and I can't cut any wider than that on my machine. So I cut it into pieces with the knife tool and created separate pieces with overlaps so that I could piece it together. I did this with the main part of the mini album and the concertina middle piece too, as this was also longer than 12".

I re-sized all the pieces together and cut the base out of white, and the layers from Go the Scenic Route patterned papers. Assembling the mini album was super easy. The layers are sized perfectly so you literally just stick them on. I sewed down the pockets with my sewing machine.

I decorated and embellished the album with more patterned papers, fussy cut flowers, chipboard stickers, regular stickers, puffy stickers and enamel dots. I used the Go the Scenic Route Thickers inside the album and I added machine stitching to the suitcase straps and handles.

I created little pockets and photo books and flip ups inside the album as well as turning the three motifs on the fold out insert into shaker pockets with gorgeous coordinating sequins.

I cut the other cut files listed above from white card, but teeny tiny! I added these throughout the mini album.

This video shows you how I assembled the album and the insert, it then goes to a flip-through of my completed album, complete with around 40 photos! I really hope you enjoy seeing my completed album. I absolutely love it.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
