Mini Album

I have been meaning to post this project for awhile but it took me awhile to find the pictures.  I made this mini album for my husband as a Christmas gift, I took pictures before I added photo's.  It would have been nice to get photo's standing up of the pages but I was sneaking around trying to get this done.  One thing I noticed is that I didn't take a photo of the slide out photo mats.  Watch the video and you can see more of it, this album was inspired by a Paper Phenomenon brag book, I got the binding idea from this video, and the cover from fellow DT member Kathy Clayton.  This was my first time attempting anything this complicated and I loved how it turned out.

Here is the video I made of the album on YouTube

Here are the photo's of the pages, next time I will make my husband help prop it up for the photo's but this time I couldn't.

Supplies used:  DCVW Be Mine, FP Winterwonderland, Spellbinders Create Page Tabs, Spellbinders Scallop Hearts. Spellbinders Hearts

My Beach Babe

It's been a crazy month, April is always bad for accountants because its tax time.  I am working on a few big projects and later this week I have a really neat mini album to share but it is a lot of work.  One of my on going projects is to finish an album of a trip we took to a beautiful place called San Andres Island.  We went 4 5 years ago (wow I never realized it was that long ago) and I am almost finished with the album.  Its been an ongoing project because I find I get bored doing the same thing for too long.  I look at this and I can't believe how big she is getting, where does the time go.

Supplies used: Spellbinders Scallop circles, Regular circles, surfs up, DCWC paper

Easter Baskets Continued

I just realized that my post didn't go as scheduled so I apologize for a late Easter post but here is another basket.  When my three year old son saw the basket I made for my daughter and her friend he asked for one too.  This one was a bit of a challenge since I knew flowers were out of the question and I didn't want to make it too dimensional because he would likely take stuff off.  Hopefully he keeps the stars on but time will tell.

Supplies used: Fancy Pants Lilac House Paper, Spellbinders Stars, Distress ink
