Monday Mini "Summer Sun"

21 January 2021

Happy Monday everyone!  

Today, let's talk about a fun and creative way to start your week - scrapbooking Monday Mini's!  

If you're not familiar with the concept, a Monday mini is a small 6 x 6 scrapbook layout that captures a moment or memory: It can be a memory from your previous week some older photos that you haven’t yet scrapped or a way to use up left over photos from a previous project. 

It's a great way to document your life in a manageable and easily achievable way and to use up your leftover papers and embellishments, cardstock, chipboard, or flowers. Anything goes really!  One of the best things about scrapbooking Monday Mini's is that they don't have to be perfect. 

You can experiment with different techniques or just keep them very simple. The idea is to get some creative time in, have fun and let your creativity flow!  

Each of my Monday mini layouts is like a little treasure chest of personal messages, each carefully crafted for one of my children or grandchildren, depending on the layout's theme and who it features.   

These messages will serve as lasting reminders of just how unique and wonderful they are. They contain the essence of life's most important lessons – to be joyful, to follow their hearts, and always strive to do the right thing. These layouts are not just snapshots of moments but little snippets of love and wisdom, waiting to offer guidance and encouragement whenever they may need it. They are a tangible expression of the boundless love and support that surround them, reminding them to navigate life with purpose, integrity, and an ever-present sense of joy.

This weeks Monday Mini

I'm not at home this week, but down in sunny Bateman's Bay, except it's actually not that sunny.. It's cold and rainy. Perfect weather to finish off a mini layout.  

This weeks Monday Mini has a photo that was taken a long time ago (January 1979) in fact! It's a photo of me with my Nanna Violet Jones who was visiting us from Wales. 

On this day, we took the ferry from Circular Query to Manly and spent the day at Manly. It was a gorgeous day, perfect for a day in the City. The journaling strips have been added digitally for now. I plan to make sure I have quite a few minis ready to go and will batch-print the journaling in one go.  Another way of saving time for me as well as not wasting cardstock by printing the journaling strips every week. 

All leftovers were used in this mini, It's very basic, but I like it when I use up Die Cuts. There is no little message in this Monday Mini.
