Weekend Warm-up: Journaling Card Mini

I love journaling cards and the April kit came with a whole delightful sheet of them.  Instead of breaking them apart and using them on various layouts, I decided to create a little mini album with the cards as my pages:

I chose to back each card with cardstock, but you could easily skip that step.  I rounded the corners because I find with mini albums that round corners tend to last longer.  I used a little bit of washi tape to accent each page and secured them together with a simple metal ring.

I used photos that I had on hand – extras from previous layouts or accidental duplicates.  This project was a great way to put those wallet-sized photos to good use. 

I plan to keep this mini in my purse pocket so that in the grocery store lines or doctor’s office I will have a fun little book to entertain the boys with.  Plus, it makes a cute brag book :).

So if you’re scrapping this weekend, and you have journaling cards to spare, consider a quick mini.  Do you have other creative ideas for journaling cards?  I’d love to hear them :).  Have a great day!
