A mini scrapbook class

This is a little 6x6 accordian mini I put together for a scrapbook class of teens.  Love to do quotes when I'm working with them. Tim Holtz bird cage was the perfect die cut to use.  Teaching others how to scrapbook is so divine.  I try not to put too much in kits, because you can overwhelm children. 

The pp was a bargain at Michaels year end sale in 2010 for $4.99.  My goal is to use what I have before I purchase another thing...Going well since February! Almost 2 months....yeah
Front cover Supplies:
DCWV Farmers' Market pp
Tim Holtz birdcage
Prima butterfly
Quote by Maya Angelou
Sizzix musical note
Recollection bling
Ribbon & bud from Michaels

The inside reveals a mini pocket album and tags

See its simple.  They can just add photos. 
Don't you just love the quote, "A scrapbook is a present you can open again and again and again."?

They love the pp and pocket pages.  It was four teens and they were finished in 45 minutes.

Jungle Love

Got a little Jungle Love going on at Platinum Scraps.  Inspired by the cute little Pagemaps sketch  below, I chose Me & My Big Ideas paper pad. When I saw the JoLee animal stickers it was love at first sight!  I put emphasis on the animals by using the Spellbinder dies as their background.  The EK Success edge punch was used as a bridge for the leopard to get to the giraffe.  Are you feeling the love?

National Craft Month - Maya Road Vintage Chipboard Album

My first project for National Craft Month is a mini album I received from my scrappy friend Sharon Sutton in a RAK.  I pulled out an old Classygirl kit.  There are so many pretty colors in this paper pack.  It was so hard for me to cut it up, but I love putting it all together for my first posting on the Scraps of Color E:Spire Creative Team!  Here are several views of the mini
Front view - I added Recollection flowers on the floral pattern paper

It's so packed I enclosed it with three Velcro fasteners

Just added a lot of things from my stash including a spellbinder die behind the tag

Used a couple of rub ons

Yes you know I have to add a little mini in the mini album for multiple photos

Keeping it simple

Photos or journaling

Jazzed the spellbinder with a little bling and there are vellum tags inserted under the edge punched border.

Isn't that the cutest bird cage by JoLee?

And……..I used ‘Scraps in the Making’ to create two simple cards.
The left sentiment is a Unity stamp. The right sentiment is from the PinkMartini Flirtini rub ons.
