031616 CKC March Challenge #3

Here we are at CKC March Challenge #3 already!

Challenge #3: Create An Instagram Inspired Mini. 
Create a small, but perfectly formed mini 
 to show off those dinky, little photographs of your lunches :) 

No pics of my lunch (I seriously don't understand the appeal 
of Instagram?) but I have a few of the two of us in Alaska! 

As soon as I saw the prompt I knew I would make a matchbook album.
 It's the perfect mini for a series of photos that don't need a lot of explanation.

This one measures 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches.
I combined two Project Life-style cards for the cover & used kraft for a base.
I knew it would be too thick for the traditional staples,
so I punched holes & secured the pages with twine.
The letters were the only thing added to my kit for this project.
They were supposed to be in there in the first place but I forgot them.
I love how clean & graphic this turned out!

The photos

The back...

I think this was quite successful!
Now print off some teeny tiny photos & grab your kit.
Come on... you know you want to...

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is really adorable - I don't think I've ever seen a matchbook album before. I really like how everything is neatly contained in a cute little package - very fun! Sometimes it's nice to put together something a little different that doesn't require lots of journaling or embellishing. Very sweet photos too!

  2. Such a fantastic idea - and the square format of the photographs works really well for the size of the album. It's so cute and dinky!

  3. Cuuuuuuuuuute! Love those very active photos of yours.

  4. This is adorable!! What a fun album idea!

  5. Gosh! What a cute matchbook album. I made those in the early days and yours is truly lovely with all those wonderful mini memories! I love IG but I find I'm doing it less these days - every day seems the same right now so I'm losing ideas of what to share. Love the way you tied up the book. Really lovely
