My new Mini Album design

For the last several months I've been working on a fresh idea for scrapbooking.  Mini Albums.  Not teeny minis but smaller in size than the traditional 12 x 12 inches.  And fewer pages.

Doesn't sound like a great idea but I know I'm not the only one out there who ends up with a few photos of an event or certain people.  For me, it is my Grandmother.  I have 6 maybe 7 photos of her and I want to pull her into Center Stage and make a big impact with these few photos!  The memories are wonderful and I look around my home and see her furniture and remember so much that I simply can not put her on a 4 page lay-out stuck in an album on a shelf. She deserves better.

Her essences is so important!  So, after looking and searching so many sites and not finding what I needed, I designed my own!

It is the cutest Chipboard Mini-Album!  It's sweet, shabby chic and VINTAGE!!  And I have some new things to add to the kit to make it SEW special! AND, if I need more pages for journaling memories, they are easy to cut out and put in the binder rings.

I bought Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden paper and began designing.  Pinks, blues, whites with text, cursive writing, postmarks and ephemera.  Then I made a kit!  Some of us like kits to guide us and some just want a blank album or the album and the Butterfly Garden paper already cut.  Either way, I'll get you what you are looking for!

And, what is UBER exciting is my very favorite You Tuber is going to take the album and finish it HER WAY!  I can't wait to see it AND she is going to be right here in August/September to show us her fabulous work and inspire us.  I'll post more about it later....I can hardly wait!

Stay cool,
