My First Mini Album

Good Morning, It started out here in Indiana with a Tornado watch, high winds and rain. We live one block for the city square where the court house is an they have the sirens and the warning message so it's real hard to sleep though that. So I decided to post my mini that I made. The cover is made from medium weight chip board that I covered with crumped packing paper from Stampin Up. I ran a ink pad over it to give it a weathered look. The Spine is heavy handmade paper that looks and feels like leather. The letters are scrabble blocks that I distressed, the flowers are silk flowers and some bling. I have to have bling.

The inside pages are made out of lunch sacks cut down. I distressed the edges of all of the designer paper

I made tags for the inside of the bags and for some of the pages. This mini was so much fun to make and I hope you enjoyed seeing it.

Recipe: Chipboard - Backing for paper packs, scrap works,
Flowers - Walmart, Dollars Tree, Prima,
Stamps - Dollar stamps from Micheal's , Some that my husband got for
me at garage sale, Martha Stewart flourish stamps and others that I don't
know who made them.s
Ribbon and Fibers - Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, Big Lots
Lace - From supplies that I have left over from my doll making days
Buttons - Walmart
