say hello the easiest mini album around, all thanks to the beautiful cards you can find in the heidi swapp old school boxed cards set!  yes...use these pre made cards to create a fabulous interactive mini in no time at all. it is such an easy project!

i wanted a place to document and capture the pictures of my son's first day of school, and since i could not pick which photo i wanted, i decided to include them all into this project.  i wanted something super quick 
and easy, yet fun and interactive at the same time.  this is where i decided to use the boxed card set.  

compiling the album is super easy!  simply choose your desired cards and fold them accordion style, overlapping one card to another so that it folds together and apart seamlessly.  you will probably have a few blank sides depending on your folds.  if you do, you can either choose to keep them blank or trim another card and just adhere the pattern over top.

next to embellishing.  it really is a blank canvas.  i loved adding in embellishments and journaling.  creating small pockets and fitting cute tags inside is one of my favourite ways to add details these day.

layering and adding different sentiments onto a card, mixed in with some stamping fun is another way i added in extra details.  i loved adding these messages to this project.  they are perfect for a kiddo starting grade one!

i hope you are inspired to get your hands on a set of these boxed cards and let your imagination run wild.  they are such a versatile and great set that not only lend themselves to fabulous card making, but to mini albums as well.
