“Our Family” Mini Album

Mini albums are such a fun way to share a group of related photos in an easy to look at format.

Here is a mini album that I recently completed and I thought I would share it here. This is an album I completed for my kids so that they can look at all of our family members and learn more about them. Each page features one person in our family. I included grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and our own family.

Supplies:

(Everything used in this album came from Scrapbook Circle’s June Kit.)

7 Gypsies Circle Album
Basic Grey Patterned Paper
Chatterbox Patterned Paper
7 Gypsies Rub-on letters
1 photo of each family member

This album was really simple to complete. I collected a photo of each family member and then cut it so that it fit on half of the circle page. I then used a thin strip of patterned paper down the center of the page. The patterned paper added a nice, simple embellishment that I thought made the page look more interesting.

I sent an email out to everyone in the family asking questions for things that I thought would be fun to include in the album. Here is the list of information that I asked everyone to complete.

Favorite color

Favorite food

Favorite movie or book

Best thing to do with your free time

Favorite vacation spot

Favorite song or music group

Hobbies

Next to each picture and on the back of the page, I added the information that I collected on each person.

For the cover, I used 7 Gypsies rub-on to spell out “Our Family.” I then used a pen to write out all of the different types of relationships we were celebrating with this album such as grandmas, grandpas, cousins, etc.

I love to hear about what mini albums you have completed, especially ones that celebrate family relationship.
