Tuesday Scrap Edition

Even with all the stuff I bought on National Scrapbook Day, when my kit arrived from Dixie Pieces yesterday, I couldn't wait to use it. So here's what I put together. I wanted to try really hard to just use the stuff in the kit. The main reason for doing that is because it helps me be creative and saves me time going through other supplies.

I did use an additional piece of cardstock and a few jewels, but other than that, everything's from their May kit.



After completing those 3, I called it a night. This morning, I had an idea for a mini book while snuggling with Natalie while she drank her milk. She fell back asleep, so I went ahead and got up, and got this little mini done before she was up for the day. I took one of the pieces of card stock and cut it into six 4x6 pages. I also cut the transparency that came in the kit, to cover the front and back. Added my patterned paper, punched another one of the other papers for my square accents, painted a place for some journaling, added my rub-on title and ribbon to bind the book.









I've don't think I've used even half of this kit, and I plan on using every scrap!

wonderful layouts! I love the mini album! So creative. I always forget that I don't have to go buy a mini album {such as a chipboard one} I can make one with just my punch and something to bind it! I see a mini in my near future...if I could only get these mother's day gifts done... I'll share those later on my blog...but think photo cubes and a tray that they fit in.
