"Gavin" Paperbag Mini

Today I wanted to share a mini album I created for a friend. She has a very active 2 year old son named Gavin. I really enjoyed making this album, in part because I have 2 boys myself! Its a paper bag mini with lots of boy features! Its a small album but has tons of room to add lots of fun pictures and journaling. I am hoping to create a similar one for my boys. I should have just made 2 at the time! Hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think:)

Vintage Girly Mini Album

Wow! It has been too long! In the past year, I have finished college, had a baby, and raised a 5 year old- all while trying to maintain my marriage:) Life is good though, and I have been very blessed! Now to reenter my favorite world- my scrap world!

I wanted to share one of my *favorite* new mini albums. Early in my pregnancy, I made this album with the idea I might be carrying a girl. I was very excited and seeing lots of vintage flowers. I added lots of butterflies, dangly jewlery pieces, ruffled tulle, and pearls! Needless to say I will be saving this album, as I was blessed with another boy!

I hope you enjoy. Check back often and leave me feedback please. My goal is to add a new project every couple of days:)

Hello Everyone! Just wanted to drop a quick note letting everyone know I didn't disappear:) I have had a major case of scrap block! I have 4 (yes- 4!) half- finished minis staring at me from my scrap closet!
1) My Surprise Mini Challenge kit from Steffogal1 :)
2) My DSC September Mini Kit
3) My Madeline Mini Kit from StampingatTiffany's
4) My DSC October Trade Mini for Olga
I got stuck on one, so I started another, then I got stuck on that one, so then I started another- like a vicious cycle! I need help!
I have a couple of videos I am having trouble posting onto YouTube, but I should have them up by mid-week. Thanks for being patient ladies:) I will soon get it all under control!

Well, I am going to go watch a couple of videos today and hopefully get some inspiration!

Hey There! Hope everyone is having a great week! I am so happy mine is almost over:) Being under the weather is never fun:( I need a day to scrap and relax! Anyways- on to the goodies:)

Recently I made an envelope mini. I got the idea from Stephanie at www.withagrin.blogspot.com, she got the idea from Marion at www.apieceofcraft.com. It is so simple and makes a great little album. Check out the tutorial at Marion's youtube (also: apieceofcraft)! I used Cosmo Cricket "Hello Sunshine". I think it tells a short, sweet story about the succession of life. It was really fun to make and I will definatly do another envelope mini again:)

Hope you all enjoy:) Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!
