Echo Park Animal Safari Mini Album

Hi Everyone, and thank you so much for joining me in the craft room! Today I’m sharing an 8″ x 8″ mini album I created this week using Echo Park’s Animal Safari paper collection. I usually order all of my paper collections from A Cherry On Top, and I love that they are pretty quick to ship my orders within a couple of days. What I didn’t know was how many other craft and art companies they sell in addition to the awesome selection of papers.

Here is the video I created with more details on how I created this album.

I used the paper collection, coordinating solids pack, and 6″x6″ paper pad for this album, and I used every single piece of it. I actually ran out at the very end, and had to use kraft paper for the two inside covers. So I would probably order an extra collection pack next time so that I have more choices at the end. Also, I ordered two stencils, ephemera, tags, enamel dots, and washi tape from the collection.

I’m not sure that you can see it in this picture, but I used a charcoal pencil and tortillon around the animals and stickers to add shading for depth. It is very subtle but adds lots of dimension.

I fussy cut animals and added stickers with enamel dots to decorate the cover. Also, I used Tim Holtz idea-ology for the string and sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed watching the video and sharing in this album with me! It came together so easily, and I loved the adorable Echo Park papers. What do you think? Do you like the look of mini albums as much as I do? Love and crafty hugs!
