Mini Album- 3 x 3 Inches- My First One

This was my first mini album. I think making these could get addictive.

Mini albums can be used for:
  • Photos
  • Journaling
  • Sayings
  • Etc.
This mini album was made from one 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock. I used purple because it is the recipients favorite color.
  • It has 17 pages for photos.
  • I used 30 photos.
Photos for the mini album:
  • We scanned 3-4 pictures at one time on our flatbed scanner.
  • I had each scanned paged printed as a 4 x 6 picture. This gave me a variety of sizes for the mini album.
  • I punched some of pictures with square, round, and hexagon Creative Memories punches.
  • Other pictures I used a paper cutter.
  • I used a small corner rounder on some of the pictures.

February 2019- Ladies & Widows Meetings

The things I made were:

Heart Magnets- Four layers of cardstock  hearts cut and stacked using score tape to hold them together. I used Lawn Fawn:
1)   Lacy Hearts LF1562 and  2) Outside In Stitched Hearts LF1563

I printed the Bible verse on regular copy paper. I cut it out using  the large Lawn Fawn Lacy Heart die LF1562. For purposes of a nice back ground I laid the lacy heart on red card stock- just for picture taking.

I used the small Lawn Fawn Lacy Heart die LF1562 to make little hearts to be spread down the table. They are 1.25 inches high.

Welcome To My New Blog!

Though I've done various crafts over the years I've found that paper crafting is my favorite. I got into it in 2017. My style is what a friend calls "simplistic". I like doing nice things but not too fancy.
My favorite stamps and dies are Lawn Fawn. I also use Artiste, Close To My Heart, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Gina Marie, Hampton Art, Hero Arts, Impression Obsession, InkADinkADoo, Memory Box, My Acrylix, Paper Artist, Poppy Stamps, Ready Set Stamp, Recollections, Sizzix, Stampabilities, and Stampendous.
My plan is to first post some pictures of paper crafts that I've done. Then I plan to do posts with simple instructions.
I enjoy blessing others with my paper crafting.
