Certified Farm Fresh Mini Album by Katelyn G

Hey Wild Whisper Fans, Katelyn here! I'm back on the blog today sharing my Certified Farm Fresh Mini Album which features the Farmhouse Collection. For my project, I've used a variety of the papers from the Farmhouse Collection, the Ephemera, the Card Pack and the Flair buttons to create my Certified Farm Fresh Mini Album. You'll want to grab a glass of your favourite Fall beverage as I will walk you through how to recreate my piece at home.

To start, choose two pieces of patterned paper from the farmhouse collection. Cut each piece down to 6" wide vertically. Take out a piece of mat board. Adhere one of the patterned paper pieces to one side of the mat board. Adhere the other patterned paper piece to the other side of the mat board. Place the mat board on top of the wrap journal and run through your die cutting machine. 

 

Punch a hole in the middle of the right hand side spine. Pull an elastic loop through the hole. Ink the edges of the journal using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam. 

Note: All patterned paper pieces have the edges distressed. The edges are inked with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

From the card pack, take out the red door card and green door card. Cut the green door down to 2 1/2" x 3". 

Choose three different border strips. Cut one border strip to 4 7/8, the second 3" and the third 2 3/4". 

From the labels paper, cut out one of the labels. 

From the yellow diamond paper, cut a piece that measures 1 1/4" x 3 1/2". 

From the wheat paper, cut one piece that measures 1 3/8" x 4 7/8" and a second piece that measures 3 1/4" x 4 7/8". 

From the ephemera package, take out the certified farm circle, a barn, wheat and two chicken tracks.

Adhere the 1 3/8" wheat strip of paper to the skinny flap. Adhere the 4 7/8" border strip 1/4" from the left of the paper.

Adhere the wheat paper to the large flap. Adhere the label 1/4" from the top and 1/2" from the right of the flap. Adhere the yellow diamond paper 1/8" from the left and 3/4" from the top of the flap. Foam square the red door card 1/2" from the top and right against the right side of the flap. Adhere the green door 1" from the top and right against the right side of the flap. Adhere the 3" border 1 3/8" from the bottom of the flap. Adhere the 2 3/4" border strip 1" from the bottom of the flap. Adhere one chicken track in the top left corner of the red door. Adhere the other chicken track in the bottom right corner of the red door. Adhere the wheat half way across the green door. Foam square the certified farm fresh square slightly overtop of the wheat. Foam square the barn to the left of the circle.

Signatures 1 & 3 will have two patterned paper pieces that measure 6" x 4 7/8", score at 3", 1 - 4x6 card and 1 - 3x4 card.

Signature 2 will have two patterned paper pieces that measure 6" x 4 7/8", score at 3" and 1 - 3x4 card.

Punch two 1/8" holes in each patterned paper signature. Use black wax cording to bind each signature set into the mini album. 

This is how your mini album will look once the signatures are bound in. Note - the knots are on the inside of the mini album.
