I have two great mini albums to show you.
One I bought at the Ontario scrapbooking expo last October, and I just got around to making it up. I bought it from the embellish it! booth (which is one of my faves, and the owners are awesome!) I cant claim much but the photos on this awesome album! It was NOT CHEAP, BUTTTTT>>>you get the album, all the paper and embellishments, and it's ALL PRECUT and ready to assemble! It took me less than 2 hours to finish the whole thing...so it was worth it! The paper is one of my favorite lines by basic grey, and the cardstock is bazzill.
The second album I bought in a kit at CKC st louis last weekend. It's the New Lisa Bearnson volume 4 "dare" album kit that comes with the album and supplies, a ton of foam stamps ( i didn't use) chipboard (i didn't use) and her new book. I couldn't pass up the "vendor discount" (woo hooo!!!) that I got on this box full of goodies!
The whole album took me under an hour to make, and I love the fact that I now have my first album all about me!! I didn't want it to be generic (just the way it came) so I tried to make it more personalized by adding a TON of rubons (love the new ones by Kaiser craft!!!) heidi swap chipboard, and my own generic doodling. I was gonna type out all of the journalling for you, but I think if you click on each individual picture, you'll be able to read the journalling. =)
