Urban Scrappers Cardboard Mini Album Challenge
Well, this was a fun and different challenge for me. I usually do not do mini albums. Not that I do not like them, but I always thought they were time consuming. Well, didn't this challenge changed my mind! I love it! A monster has been created....watch out friends and relatives, this is what you may receive for holiday and birthday gifts!
The challenge was to use a cardboard cover, black and white photos and stitching, distressing, etc. I mixed chipboard album pieces with cardboard just to mix it up a bit.
I used patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Bella Bella Collection. I thought these papers worked well with the cardboard.
I love the way the ribbons accent the mini. I grabbed all the pink I could find. I love the book plates from Tim Holtz-Ideaology. It was the perfect element for the cover along with a Prima flower or two.
