Mini Book

 I dont do many mini books but I really enjoyed making this one, the photos are of our holiday this year to Wales and the great thing is you can get so many small photos in a mini book and get it done far quicker than if you were doing 12x12 layouts. The papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle and were last years autumn collection which I had left over from a class. The Title has been cut using one of Tim Holtz's alpabets Vintage Market and the stamp is from Waltzing Mouse. I used one of Tim's edger Sizzix dies for the border. The rest of the album is made up from a chipboard cover and envelopes for the pages. Inside each envelope I put another insert to hold some more photos.


Not getting alot of time for scrapping at the momet as Christmas cards have takn over but I counting the days until I go away for my retreat, hopefully I will get loads done then.

Back to Basics

Not alot of time for scrapping at the moment as I have been preparing card classes but I did manage to finish off a few kits that I am using to finish an album for my husbands nephew that visited us this year from Portugal earlier this year.

This kit from Totalpapercrafts uses the Basic Grey Basics range. Works well with these photos which were proving hard to match upto some patterened papers.  I used some American Craft Thickers for the title. Everything else is from the BG Basics range including the stickers.

I have put details of my next all day crop up for anyone that is interested.  If you want a seat reserved just pop me an email so I know numbers.
