We will create this rustic 8×8 gatefold mini album, out of heavy black chipboard. We will then decorate the many pages of flips, folds, flaps and pockets, using Carta Bella’s Welcome Home Collection. This fun collection includes a rustic farmhouse feel, without being too country. There are florals and fun touches of Chip and Joanna inspration inside too. The cover inspiration came from my grandmother’s china cabinet. It was always “home” and grandmom’s house and this collection brought all of that together for me. This is an amazing family album….I know sometime mini albums do not have opportunities for many pics….not so with this one. I designed it so that you have tons of places for pics….plus if you want to add a couple of more pages… you have space to do that too!
