Mini Album Week 2

 It's week 2 Mini Album

 ...and I didn't get as far as I would have liked on my Mini Album.  I had some other crafty commitments to get done.  But those are out of the way and I can get decorating.  That's the fun part!

I did get to cut all my designer paper.  This took some time especially since I had 52 cuts...well 54 including the cover and back.


As you are cutting be sure to trim all your extra pieces.  Here I have a file folder to keep them all together for this project.  These will come in handy when you get to layering your pages.

I used an old coffee tin for the scraps.  It gives you an idea of how little waste there was once I trimmed and saved the big pieces!

I taped the top and bottom of each piece.  One, this saves on tape (I went through a full roll) and two it allows me to tug tabs or ribbon through the openings if I want.  I can always add glue if I want to seal the paper to the file folder page.

Keep your pages organized!

If there is a piece of DP that has something you want to show off be sure to use it fully on your page.  This is my front cover..."52 Things I "LOVE" About You"

Here are all my pages together. 

OK now I knew this could be an issue. Yep, too many pages! So I am going to cut them in half to 26 pages. It's still going to be big! But, now I have extra pages for another mini album or 2.

Stuff to embellish...

buttons
felt
tags
envelopes
metal
clips
twine
ribbon
photo's
tickets
assorted punches
tabs

These are just a few ideas I will be using to embellish:)

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
