Hi everyone! Tara here with Secretbees StudioSummer may be coming to an end but the gorgeous season of Fall will soon be here and a surefire way to get excited for a new season is to play and craft with some gorgeous paper! The new Simple Stories Autumn Splendor is a rich collection that is bursting with deep colors and detailed images. All in all a great way to document your Autumn memories.
I wanted to create a large project that would show off this stunning collection and so I created a memory box that holds even more boxes and of course, mini albums! There are six separate boxes inside and four of them hold mini albums with lots of space for photos and mementos!
The box itself is made from chipboard that I then covered in the wonderful paper designs. I even made a double layered frame for the front of the box that showcases a gorgeous paper from the collection as well as lots of the flower and leaf bits and pieces.
The album is tied together with a piece of ribbon and opens up to a beautiful scene of wildflowers and insects. There is a small pocket on the left side that holds some adorable ephemera and you can see all of the boxes and mini albums on the right. Each album is encircled with a beautiful belly band that is layered with stickers, bits and pieces and chipboard of the collection.
All of the boxes are removable and can be moved around and I couldn’t resist lining the back inside of the box with another pretty piece of the paper in the collection. This memory box is pretty inside and out!
For the mini albums, I used all of the different sized element cards of the collection and made them all a bit different. The 4×6 cards are separate with space on the back for journaling or photos. The 2×2 element cards I kept in a strip of six and folded them. They open up to reveal decorative fronts and on the back there are a few embellishments and places for small photos. For the 3×4 and 4×4 element cards, I adhered them to an accordion strip of paper and made them into booklets. All are perfect spots for Fall memories!
