Free Printable Mini Album...





Hi There!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Kids are on spring break this week and we're having fun which is probably why I'm not around as much as I normally am... But we're having fun and they're only little once so I am soaking it all up :)

So today I have a free printable mini album! These are the perfect size to create a paper bag mini album too! I measured them to be 5.5 x 5.5 .... Depending on the paper bags that you use, you may have to simply trim a little bit to fit.... There are paper bag tutorials everywhere if you google one, but if you can't find one, let me know and I will do one... I would do one for today's post, but "surprise - surprise" I can't find my batteries for my camera.... lol... Kids! 

So here's the directions.... 
1. Get a few paper bags...
2. Fold them in half
3. Punch holes along the side. Some people do 3, some do 5. I typically do 5. 
4. Stack the paper bags on top of eachother lining up the holes
5. Put ribbon through the holes and tie together (this is how the album will be held together)

Here's an example....

Now here are a few free printable pages for you to add to your album..... 




Here are two printable pages with shipping tags behind the photo mat.... 
There's one with greens and blues and one in sepia...


And this one has reads "Easter Fun"


Here's one with a brown and aqua houndstooth pattern in the background.... Crowns... 
Ribbon accent and a doily at the top and bottom, lightly added.... 


The same above layout but in pink! 


This one is one of my fave's that I made with the robin's egg blue and polka dots on vintage red.... 


The same above layout with pinks.... 


The same one as above with the word "Family"


This one is in aqua's and blue's.... 




I like this layout below with "My Favorite Things." 
Add a small photo or memento to the side of it along with your favorite things.... 


Blue bird... A journal box at the upper left and then a photo mat with washi tape accents... 


The same layout above but in pink... Including the pink shipping tag... 


Cherished... Blue butterflies, the word "Cherished" and a few baubles :) 


Then a rustic and vintage looking layout... 


How about one in greens? Including a checked ribbon and layered papers + flower.... 


The same layout as above but in pink... 


Pretty Lime Green and Grey Layout.... Crocheted doily at the top.... 


Another layout... 


Vintage egg and greenery... Linen background paper..


Vintage inspired .... Aged Tag.... Bird....


Vintage yet colorful.... Aged Paper and a touch of glitter... 


The same layout as above but in sepia... Great for you to add "selective" color... 


Pretty Navy Blues.... With a birds nest... 


Same Layout as Above but in greys.. Great for you to add selected colors... 


Fun, bright and cheery! 


.Fun bright and cheery! With a flower! 


Template below for you to add your own colors too! 
Pencils, markers, chalks, etc. :) 



I hope you enjoy and were able to find a few pages... I tried to keep them simple so you have plenty of room to really do what you would like to do to them. Add embellishments, journaling, etc. And this way they may coordinate with anything you already have in your stash :) 

XOXO
Emily
