May is National Scrapbooking month and in honor of that we are featuring mini scrapbooks as our theme for Fabulous Friday this week on the Sisters in Stamping blog. I created this mini scrapbook that is sized at approximately 4" x 4" - the perfect size for a proud Grandma or parent to carry around. I could also see my daughters filling it with photos of their friends. This will be one of the make-n-takes at my Craft and Scrapbooking Crop on Saturday, May 19th... I still have openings so let me know if you'd like to join me!! Find details here.
Below you will find photos of the inside pages... I just used one sheet of gorgeous paper from the retiring Paisley Petals DSP pack with scraps of marina mist and always artichoke card stock for my embellishments. The pages are made of naturals white card stock and the scrapbook is held closed with retiring 1/4" marina mist grosgrain ribbon. The butterflies were cut out with my Big Shot (have you seen my Birthday promotion this month?) and the Beautiful Butterflies bigz die and Beautiful Wings embosslit. I embellished the butterflies with basic pearls jewel accents - aren't they pretty?! I also used the Vintage Wallpaper and Square Lattice impressions texturz folders to add some texture to my cover. The flower on the inside was created with the retiring triple layer Bouquet punch and the Little Leaves sizzlit. I also used the Scallop Square Duo bigz die for some of the pages. I love this scrapbook and can't wait to put photos inside!
For even more inspiration, be sure you visit the Sisters in Stamping blog after Noon EST today to check out what mini scrapbooks Karla, Rachel and Jacque came up with this week. Thanks for stopping by - I hope you have a wonderful weekend! My kids will be swimming in their first long-course swim meet of the season in the Virginia Tech pool. I will be enjoying the smell of chlorine all weekend!!
