Spellbinders Blog Ambassador Mini

 Spellbinders Blog Ambassador Mini Album

 I am excited to finally share my latest mini album I made.  I made a similar one as a Christmas gift and I had so much fun I decided to make another.  I was never one for making mini albums but I love this style of album because it holds 4x6 pictures which makes it perfect for gift giving.  Its very interactive with a pocket on each page with a photo tag/mat, mini file folder, or matchbook mini inside.  On the outside pockets are additional photo mats with the tabs sticking out. 

One of my favorite parts was making the letters, I love the new fonts from Spellbinders and because they cut chipboard you can make dimensional titles with them.  I have a tutorial here, I used the 1" Miracle tape from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.  It's great for making mini albums and comes in so many sizes at a reasonable price.

Sometimes it can be hard to photograph albums like this and show all the different elements so I made a quick video showing the album here:

FWF Masculine Birthday Card

I don't know about you but I always struggle to make masculine birthday cards, I find it hard not to make them with flourishes, flowers and bling.  I decided to keep this one on the simple side which is why I stuggled with it.  In the end I was pleased but I think I will keep on trying masculine cards so that I can build a stash and not have to panic when I need one.

Supplies used: Unity Make a Wish, MME Stella and Rose, DCWV Cardstock, Twine

Friends with Flair

It's friends with flair time, I decided to breakout my new boarder die from spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One.  Its such an elegant die and I had planned to add more elements but when I added them on they seemed too much so in the end I left them off and kept it clean and simple.  Its hard to see in the picture (sorry battery died) but the card stock is a shimmer cardstock.

Supplies used: Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One, Ribbon, Shimmer cardstock, Unity Blossom Stackers
