 For this theme I made a mini album and camera set. I have so many random photos of my girls goofing around and being silly that I decided to make a simple mini to hold a few of those fun photos. Here is a look at the set:


To make the camera I used the Retro Camera Set from Lettering Delights and my Silhouette Cameo.


I also used the polaroid frame file from the Retro Camera set to make the cover and pages of my album. I added different tapes behind the frames to create backgrounds for each of the word bubble pages. I love the smaller patterns of the tapes and how well they worked for this smaller sized mini album.









I also thought the polaroids would make cute cards so I whipped up a few to have on hand. I simply enlarged the polaroid frame to fit the size of a standard card base and cut them on my Silhouette. I added more washi tape and word bubbles and I was done. Simple and easy.



Supplies:

Lettering Delights Retro Camera Set
The Paper Studio Cardstock- White and Black
Bazzill Cardstock- Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, and Blue
Freckled Fawn Tapes- Love Graph, Polka Dot with Hearts, Yellow Stars, Pink and Yellow Chevron, Teal Scattered Dots, Heart and Clouds, and Red Stripe

OMG - I love all those photos linked up with the word bubbles - super cute... in fact - I love every single thing on your blog that I've seen so far, and i'm sure that I won't change my mind the more I see... you are so talented and it's clear you have a great eye for clean and simple design which pleases everyone - whatever their taste!

Washi tape looks fabulous in your projects, but it's so expensive in the UK, and I haven't seen that many designs either - only Tim Holtz grunge style! I prefer these here.

Thanks again for sharing
