OK, still having difficulty with the scanner – think it’s going back to the manufacturer.  I decided to take some pics of the mini book.

This was the first project in the class using the following materials:

  • 3 12X12 sheets of double sided patterned paper
  • 1 12X12 piece of cardstock
  • 1 set chipboard alpha
  • tiny alphas
  • ribbon and trim scraps
  • small flowers, buttons, etc…
  • die cut tags and labels

Basically you fold the 12X12 sheets twice, punch holes and tie it together to make a 6X6 album.  I like the concept because you do not need to buy an album for this…your patterned paper becomes your album.  Yeah! I actually completed an album (granted it only has 12 pages)! 


The theme was “be” and several quotes were used instead of journaling.  If you want any information on the products used, send me an e-mail.

Thanks for looking!

If you look over to the right you’ll see my blogroll – see it?  I just added (ok, I added it a couple of days ago) a link to the “Pioneer Woman” site.  Wait, don’t click on it – I have more to tell you.  I love this blog!  I love her stories!  This woman is amazing!  She moved from California to Oklahoma to be with the man she calls “Marlboro Man”.  She is raising 4 “punks” and homeschools them!  I love her photography.  I’ve never seen such amazing photos of horses and cows.  She also offers tutorials on Photoshop.  She frequently offers contests in which she’ll get thousands of replies!  On one post for a $500 AmEx gift card, she received over 10,000 responses!  Wow!  I’m excited to see 20 people visit my site (and that might be one person clicking on 20 different pages)!  The more I read, the more interested I become in her life!  If you get a minute – check her out!

Thank you Missey for sharing the Pioneer Woman with me!
