Mini Album Scraps

I am in a swap over at Mini Album Scraps. My mini is 4.25 by 5.5 inches. You need to have at least 50 pages and four sections. The colors were Neutral and my partner, Leah, picked pink for the accent color.


I went through my paper and just pull so I can't tell you the paper lines I used. Sorry.
Here are the stamp sets I used:

Cloud 9 Design Simple Thoughts - Laughter
SU Favorite Thoughts
Tim Holtz Artful Things
My Creative Time Encouraging Quotes
Close to My Heart Playful Flourishes, State of Mind, Aspiration
                               
Here is the finished book. 


I learned a couple of things making this. First that you can use old plastic paper holders to die cut and ink for pages. 
I got the ones in my book from an old Creative Memories 12X12 paper holder. It was falling apart so I took it apart and used it. The clock on the front of the book, the bingo page and the Admit one page came from this.

Another thing I learned was that if you take your heat tool to clear contact it seals to embossed paper pretty good. Not perfect but pretty good.

Here is a video of what is inside the Mini I made for Leah.
I would love to hear what you think about my mini.


Thanks for stopping,
