Warm Memories – Mini Album

This is a fun little mini I created using the Bo Bunny Cascading Chipboard Album. The cascading pages allow you to see each beautiful piece of patterned paper. I love the versatility of this album because it allows me to add or delete pages. Scrapbooks Plus has a great selection of mini albums in different shapes, sizes and materials. I consider it my one-stop-shop!

The Cover

One of my favorite types of flowers comes from Bazzill. Their grosgrain flowers are stunning. I added Cinammon Stickles to the middle of each to match the book. I attached the flowers to the patterned paper using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. Painted my staples using my Copic Markers, then I placed them in the stapler. You will see how I used the staples on the next few pages.

The scallops were made using my EK Success punch. This punch also embosses while it punches which is terrific. I added a ribbon from Webster’s Pages and finished the page off with a chipboard sticker from the Apple Cider collection.

I love using the family themed tags from 7 Gypsies. I used them last month in my Tim Holtz family album and thought they would also be great for this album. I am a big fan of Tattered Angels glimmer chips. I used the dragonfly from the Nature collection. I used Glimmer Glam from Ranger Ink to give a subtle shine to the dragonfly.

The beautiful tag was made by my daughter. She loves Tim Holtz and made this tag last year after seeing a demonstration at the Great American Scrapbook Convention. I added the ribbon so that you could see it from the front of the book when it is closed.

Kaisercraft has the most fabulous mini envelopes! I used one on this page and surrounded it with Stickles. I left the right side empty to allow for numerous photos or momentos.

The chipboard pumpkin was painted using chalk ink and a light spray of gold glimmer mist.  The butterfly is from K and Company as well as the "Laughter" sticker.  On the right side I used Kaisercraft envelopes and a beautiful fall wreath from Jolee's.

Thanks for joining me today.

What a great Mini Album. I love making mini albums, even more so than doing 12 X 12 pages. Thanks for the great "eye candy."
