How to Add Multiple Photos to One Mini Album Page by Kristin Greenwood

My Creative Scrapbook design team member Kristin Greenwood is up today with some tips featuring our October Album kit!

The great thing about mini albums is getting to scrapbook a lot of photo in a small space.  So when I create one I always look for ways to add multiple photos on each page.  I am going to share with you an easy way to add nine photos to one page!

All you will need it two sheets of 12x12 paper.  I used cardstock, but you could use a heavier weight pattern paper (like the adorable Doodlebug paper that comes in the Album Kit).

You will need cut one sheet of paper into four pieces.  Two of them need to be 6 1/2 x 4 1/4, score at 3 1/4.  Two of them need to be 8 1/2 x 3 1/4, score at 4 1/4.

Fold those cut papers at the score line.  One will open from the right side, one from the bottom, one from the left side and one from the top.  Lay them in a line in that order.

Adhere the first one (I labeled it A) on top of the second one (labeled B).  Adhere those on top of the third one (labeled C) and than all of those on top of the last one (labeled D) .

Cut nine 3x4 photo mats from the other piece of paper.

 Adhere those to your mini album you just made.

Your mini album should open from the right side,

the bottom,

the left side

and the top.

Here is what it looks like on my page, a mini album for your mini album!
