Mini Scrapbook

A sweet friend of mine asked me to make a "gift" as a thank you for the mother of her son's new bride. Wow, that was a mouth

I used Microsoft Publishing, sized the photos on an 8 x 10 photo paper and was actually able to get quite a few photos in this album.

I used Cricut Pearl paper for the cover and added pearl bling. 
On the three rings I tied tulle, purple and white ribbon.

I continued to use the Cricut Pearl paper on these next two.
I also added some pearl bling as well.

I thought doilies would look pretty here.
I was working with such a small space and a lot
of photos so I couldn't add too much.

The paper I used on this page was My Mind's Eye.

blue tulle, the size of the paper, as a layer.

This page design is the same as above. 

The paper is a Theresa Collins design. 
I used a flower paper punch and some
bling for the center.

I used the same design and paper for this page 
but added two bows.

I left this page with two blank sheets that my friend
could either write on or add more photos if she'd

Thinking of you card

I made this card to go along with the calendar for my Grandma. She's been feeling a bit neglected although we'd just been up to see her a few weeks ago. She loses track of the days and time. Hopefully, this cheered her up.

I do like using these layered stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Layout Process ~ Nineteen

Here's a two-page layout I did of my youngest son's 19th birthday celebration from last year.

I used the We R Memory Keepers Lazor Tool to help with putting the scraps together for a 12 x 12 piece of paper. It's a fantastic tool!
