I saw this wonderful and easy guide that explains how to make a mini album from scratch and decided to have a go and make a 7″ x 7″ mini.

The obvious candidate for the very first mini was a blank album for the birth of a baby girl, a present for the brand new addition to a friend’s family. I decided to leave it all blank so that the parents can write the titles to the photographs themselves which will make it much more personalised and turn it into a joint project.

Here are a few pages, starting with the cover.

Cardstock – nameless single sheets that I got at a stationary shop

Stamp – Fiskars New Baby simple stick rubber stamps

Ink – ColorBox Lavender pigment ink

Embossing Folder – Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

This page was made with Inkadinkado Patterned Bugs clear stamp, ColorBox Lavender, Aqua and Seagull pigment ink, EK Success butterfly mini punch

This page was made with Inkadinkado Patterned Pets clear stamp, ColorBox Lavender, Aqua, Robin’s Egg and Seagull pigment ink

And the last photo is of  the concertina fold spine which was made with same inks and stamps as above


New Year Cards

The Jewish New Year’s Eve is on the 16th of September. As I am on holiday at the moment, I thought it would be a great use of my time to start making all the cards now. I will probably make 10 of these

Paper – simple white cardstock, light blue patterned paper I have had for ages and can’t remember which brand it is
Embossing Folder – Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

Stamp – Inkadinkado Patterned Bugs
Ink – ColorBox pigment Robin’s Egg, Frayed Burlap distress marker

Ribbon – again, no idea what brand it is. Very simple ribbon which I bought by the meter.
