Marauder's Map Harry Potter Mini Album | GoGo Getaway

Thursday 26 August 2021


Hi everyone! I have a new mini album to share today which I made as part of a GoGo Getaway Cybercrop challenge. The quote to be inspired by was ‘I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’. I have recently been to the Harry Potter Studios with my daughter and we had a wonderful day out . I now have soooooo many photos to scrap so I decided to put them all in one album. There are about 95 photos in this album!

I decided to make the album as the Marauder’s Map. I love this part of the books and films and I figured it would be perfect for a mini album. I created a very long concertina fold album, which I’ve worked out is approximately 60” wide! It is 9” tall. It opens out from the middle and extends a very long way!

I have used the Witches & Wizards collection by Echo Park Paper to make this mini album. I bought it when it first came out, knowing I would use it one day and I didn’t want to miss out! So I’ve been keeping it safe until the perfect time to use it. I’m delighted to see there is a Witches & Wizards 2 out now as well. As well as the papers from that collection the album base is made from cardstock. I used black cardstock for part of the album, which I covered first in tissue paper I received from the Harry Potter Studio Tour – this was a great way to include a little souvenir from the day. It is printed with newsprint…Wizard newsprint of course!

In order to get so many photos into the album I had to get creative with interactive ways to include so many. There are many pockets, flip ups, tags and cards hidden amongst the magical pages of this Marauder’s Map.

The album is bound with two ribbons and is embellished on the front with charms, several Bramble Fox stars in pretty gold colours and white. I’ve also included a journaling card of the quote from the Quote Challenge on the front cover which serves as the title of the album.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing this album.

Mischief Managed!
