Here mini, mini . . .

M1

Lately I've found a few extra days to work on some mini-albums.

Having collected many patterns for mini's

I chose to use

Laura Denison's Simple Favorites: 3 Pocket Album.

I found this album to be so intriguing with its many pockets

going every which way

and plenty of room for tags and photo mats.

M2

I chose both Graphic 45 and K&Co papers for my book

with some Bo Bunny thrown in for good measure.

M3

Look at all that real estate!

M4

Love the blues and browns with some pink thrown in.

It's vintage and bright.

M5

Pockets, pockets everywhere!

M6

And for the cover, I used Laura's idea of fabric on the spine.

Worked like a charm,

especially with Frank Garcia's Artisan Tape by Prima Marketing.

(Love that stuff)


We're making changes . . .

My first moving video . . .

TR1

Yes, it's back to the 1920's for me with a moving video.

Although I've made video's before, they were from stills (see, 1920's!)

Today, after days of work (ha - no kidding)

I finally quit.  It is what it is.

TR2

This mini is from a pattern designed by 

Laura Denison.

It's called Time Revisited and you can find it here:

http://www.lauradenisondesigns.com/product/time-revisited-mini-album/

Laura is an amazing book creator who definitely thinks out of the box for all her designs.

I don't think she evens knows a box exist out there somewhere.

I have learned so much from her in mini-book construction.

This one, I decorated myself with the help of a 

fabric binding (thanks Laura!)

applied with Frank Garcia's Memory Hardware Artisan Adhesive Tape.

NO KIDDING - THIS IS THE BEST TAPE I'VE EVER USED!

The strongest and yet still tears easily. It's amazing!

If your LSS doesn't carry it, please ask them to. You won't be disappointed.
