Mini Album | Thankful For *Elle's Studio'

It's been a while since I have made any mini album. I am loving this piece of Grey-Orange triangle patterned paper from the new Elle's Studio Sycamore collection. So I decided to use it to make the cover for my Thankful Journal. I believe everyday we should be focusing on happy moment and there are little things that we are thankful for.

I keep this mini album fairly simple. I cut papers into various sizes and fold them into half, bind them with pamphlet stitching. I then added some of the recent photos that I really love and some journalling tags. I leave the journaling spots blank and will fill up with my journalling before my bedtime.

The camera die-cut in cork sheet is just too cute. There are pages that have no photos at all so I could just journal to my heart.

This is such a precious photo of my toddler - I took this photo of him during his first day to pre-Montessori. I absolutely adore the way he sat there and observe his classmates during snack time.

Another photo of us went to Kinokuniya - a Japanese bookstore near our home. I love his outfit of the day and also he looked so tiny in between the book shelves.

I have a section of my daily planner to jot down notes that I am thankful for - and will transfer to the mini album when I have time to journal. Do you make any thankful album this year? I am thinking to make more thankful journal because I really want to remember and cherish every little moment. Time simply passed by too fast daily and we tend to forget about the little moments / things that we should cherish in our heart.



  1. It's lovely!! I've been debating making something like this, but not sure how to go about it. No way would it be nearly as amazing as yours, dear!

  2. I've begun my planner following Stephanie Ackerman's Documented Faith 2015 planner, but I'm doing it a little differently than she is as I write my blog to my Bible Study teacher and she is NOT artsy/crafty like I am, so I am simplifying it for her. Yes, the little things and little boys tend to slip away and grow up way too fast. My boy is now 28 and things he's too old to be mothered anymore! =0)


Thanks for leaving me a comment. I would love to hear from you =)
