Hello Echo Park fans!  Holly here today from Ribbons & Glue sharing a DIY Mini Album made from the Our Family Mini Theme Kit.
The papers and stickers in the Our Family Kit  inspired me to create a Mini Album in the shape of a house using my Silhouette and Echo Park cut files. Family means Home to me and like the saying says, Home is Where Your Heart Is.

Mini Albums can be made in any shapes and sizes by using die cuts.   To make this house shaped Album, I chose an Echo Park Home cut file and cut it out twice with white card stock, adhered the two pieces together then matted both sides with patterned papers.    I cut out the files four times each to create the four pages of my Mini Album.

After the pages were cut and matted, I used a hole punch to attach them together with a binder ring.

The pages of the Mini Album are embellished with Accent stickers, Journaling cards and enamel dots.

I also used my Silhouette to cut out the Echo Park Male and Female Icon cut file  to personalized my own family.
