Valentine Mini Album

Last year I made a scrapbook for my 17 year old grand-daughter for Valentine’s Day.  I left the pictures out so that she could put in some of her own.  She was really torn on whether to keep it or put in some pictures of her and her boyfriend and give it to him for Valentine’s Day.  In any event she decided that she couldn’t part with it and decided to keep it for herself and put pictures of their prom in it.  So this year, I decided to make a book that she could give to him and I left places in it for her to journal and personalize it.

I used one of Laura Denison’s Designs for the Sunburst Album http://followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com/ .  I love her designs and this was a pretty easy one to put together.  Very little paper used and I had the book put together in less than 3 hours.  I used a We Memory Keepers paper stack from last year.  The paper stack made it easy, it had a lot of cute tags and things I could cut out.  I cut the heart tabs for the tags with my Cricut.

Halloween Paperbag Mini

This past month, my mom, sister and a few co-workers got together and created Halloween paperbag minis.  It was a lot of fun. I was able to show them how to assemble the books and decorate them. We used Echo Park’s Art of Apothercary Emporium papers and stickers and Cricut’s Happy Hauntings Cartridge.  Unfortunately, my mom headed back to Florida before she was able to finish hers.  I gathered pictures of all her children and grand-children and completed it for her.  Since Halloween is one of her favorite holidays and she loves to decorate, I know she will enjoy sharing her book with friends and family.  This was a really fun project and I thank Laura from Following the Paper Trail  for all of the inspiration.
