Quick Quotes - Hawaii Mini Album

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to be sharing my little mini album with you today! I get so excited when it is my turn to get the Club Q Kits! They are always packed FULL of yummy goodies made with the newest Quick Quotes lines! And I was super excited when I found out I was getting the April Club Q kit because it features the Calypso Line! LOVE this line! It is full of fun, bright colors!

Here is what I created….

When I get the kits, I like to pull all of the papers and embellishments out and create my own thing. Here is the mini album that is part of the kit…

I loved the tags that make up the mini album but I knew I would need more pages so I used 5 brown paper bags to create an album that would hold the tags. 

I folded the bottom of the bags and used a piece of patterned paper to create a binding to hold everything together. I punched holes through all the layers and tied it together with the ribbon that came in the kit. I then cut the paper bags at different lengths so that each page from the front to the back of my album got a little longer. I also cut the large chipboard tags so that they fit into each of the bags.

Do you like the flowers on the cover? Those are some of the die-cuts that are in this kit!

The tags were so quick and easy to do because everything was pre-cut! I inked around the edges of the chipboard and paper and then added a photo and a few embellishments.

I used the paper from the kit for the backgrounds on each of the paper bag pages and then added my photos. This kit also has an entire sheet of vellum sentiments that I tore into strips and then added to my photos.

When this album was complete, I had 4 large chipboard tags with photos on each side along with the 5 paper bags that I covered and added even more photos to! This was a fast and easy way to complete an entire album in an afternoon!
