Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing an adorable Clear Scraps Mason Jar album that I altered to create this fun little mini titled "A Latte Love". It features Echo Park "Simple Life" paper and stickers, which were so fun and so easy to work with on a project like this!
I altered the mini by cutting off the "threads" of the jar, leaving me with what looks like a coffee cup. I chose to punch out the heart on the cover and save it for another project. I really like the three dimensional look the window gives to the cover. Fussy cut flowers mixed with some Cameo cuts from the Echo Park papers and a coffee filter flower all complemented the cover nicely, don't you think? I even used coffee stained ribbon for an accent throughout. The backside of the cover is below...a simple page, highlighting the photo and a bit of journaling...oh, White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha, I can't wait for you to come back!
This next page is a clear one. I chose to mat my photos on a bit of paper and use a doily for an accent. I love how the embellishments from the page behind even embellish this page! ;)
The backside of the clear page...again, simple.
This is my favorite page of the mini. I had been saving this Starbucks coffee sleeve with an Oprah quote for months. It really reasonates with me so I had to keep it. I created a pocket with the sleeve which was perfect for slipping in a tag with some journaling.
Another of my favorites, the backside of this page was matted on a pink paper bag, just like they use at Starbucks! More journaling is hidden inside the pocket.
And the last page, another doily, some fussy cut flowers and some fun stickers and this mini is complete.
The back of the album..
The whole thing is bound with rings. I do love how I used patterned paper only on the last page for the handle but you can see it all the way through the mini. That saved me a bunch of time when making this book. One more look...
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Let me know if you have any questions about creating this mini if you decide to document your love of coffee, too! I'd love to see!
