Mini-Book using Elle’s Studio Printables

Hello friends! I am super excited to share this little mini-book I made using the Hello Good Times printables in the shop!

My intention was to use the daily labels and the 3×4 tags to create a look into just one simple week – here’s how I put it all together.

To design the cover, I stacked the individual labels on a Photoshop canvas and printed them on cardstock then trimmed to size. (Alternatively, you could print 2 sheets of the printables and glue them to a piece of paper that is already cut to size.)
Then I added a matching puffy heart next to each one.

I prepped the guts by trimming a few plastic 6×8 pockets so they were 3×8 (this just means trimming off the right side of pockets so you’re left with 2 pockets only). Then selected 1 photo from each day and printed them to be the same size as the pocket pages from edge to edge since these photos were not going into pockets.

The back side of the cover has a printable card and the date range and then the opposite page is a pocket. The book alternates this pattern for each day. So when you flip to Monday, the pockets are of the left and the large photo is on the right.

For each day, I added the daily label and added very few embellishments. Honestly, the book could easily be made with only the labels and cards but we all love the Elle’s Studio embellishments and I couldn’t help it!

Sometimes the label fit best on the photo and other times it was better on one of the cards. I also reached into my stash of recent journaling tags and found a few that worked well for the photo that day.

I loved capturing just the tidbits of the week in this fun ring-bound book. The easy to print cards and labels made it so easy to put this together in just a couple of hours.

Thanks for hanging with me today! See you soon!
