An 8 x 8 mini book

Last Saturday I was able to spend a good part of the day at my local scrapbook store, Scraphappy Pensacola, where they were celebrating National Scrapbook day. 

I know I wanted to work on a mini book, so I took with me (along with a bunch of other stuff) a pad of 12 x 12 paper from My Minds Eye that I picked up at a Hobby Lobby for a steal! I don’t know the name of the design series, but the package contained 48 sheets of glittered and embossed cardstock in some very pretty patterns. 

Normally I don’t go for the glittered paper, but on this series the glitter was nice and subtle, plus I love most of the designs.

Here is a look at the cover.  The entire album uses paper from the My Minds Eye pad, with the exception of a few sheets of solid color Bazzil cardstock.  The front and back cover uses chipboard pages from another MME kit from the Lush collection.  That particular kit contained an album with a front and back, as well as three inside chipboard pages  and I just figured I’d use two of the three pages to make a front and back cover for this album.

I just love these two patterns – I plan on adding a title in chocolate letters soon.  The border was created using a MS punch on chocolate cardstock.

One of the great things about this paper pack is that some of the designs are so pretty all I did was cut a square from a sheet and created a page with it – I”ll add photos and journaling later on and maybe an embellishment or two, but that’s it.  Here is a photo of one of these pages:

Here is a look at another page – the chocolate paper is Bazzill, but the rest is all part of the MME pack.

It turned out to be a very productive Saturday!  I made the front and back as well as 8 inside pages.  And I won a door prize to boot!    Thanks Scraphappy Pensacola for hosting such a great day!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
