WOW Mini Album 2013 Convention Swap
At 2:30pm I participated in the WOW Mini Album swap hosted by Kelly Jean Gettlefinger. She stated WOW and lots of layers, etc. I created a 6" x 6" Wedding Mini Album. This could be given as a gift to the bride and groom to use or given as a gift to grandparents. I am sure you will come up with several uses or variations.
Remember when looking at my album that it is "all in the details". Look close or you may miss them! Inside pages will be posted in greater detail at a later date.

Jenny’s Mini Album – Downline Shoebox Swap
Below is a mini album that my downline, Jenny Hansen had for our shoebox swap. I used Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and matching colors for my album. Jenny’s was made with Sunshine and Sprinkles from Stampin’ Up!’s 2013 Spring Mini catalog, I forgot to take a picture.
The album is made with one sheet of 12” x 12” Designer Series Paper and Stampin’ Up!’s Simply Scored Tool. I have seven pullouts for pictures and journalling. Thank you, Jenny for bringing this fun project to January’s downline meeting!!
Today I am featuring 2 projects we made at my Love Stamp Camp. All items were created to give to a special someone. First is a cute little mailbox decorated for Valentine’s Day. Inside you can put your favorite Chocolates – who doesn’t love chocolate – or a gift card, jewelry, etc.
Next is a mini album featuring products products from Stampin’ Up!’s Spring Mini. I used 4” square coasters for the covers and card stock pages. How many new products can you count?

You can change the binding by punching with the Crop-a-Dile and using ribbon or rings to secure.
Now you get to see my last Creative Crew project, CCREW0412SF – Scrapbook Inspiration Focus. Make a mini scrapbook album using the 2010-2012 In Colors and pattern packs. What a nice way to say good-bye to these colors! I saw an album at a recent fundraiser that intrigued me. The album was different than any other I have seen. I decided to try making one for this challenge. The binding is called "stack the deck". Laura Dennison has a video on how the binding is made. I googled her name and "stack the deck binding" to find the directions.

SCS Creative Crew Scrapbooking Challenge for March used the sketch below. Using the layout we had to show a bright, cheerful, happy page to celebrate spring's arrival. It didn't have to be about spring, just colorful, cheery and it just makes you smile! For this page, I chose my photos first and then chose the colors based on the photos. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the pictures a little and I love how it turned out. The butterfly on the tag was a leftover from some previous technique experimenting. It was what my tag needed to complete the page. I love it when I can recycle other card rejects!
