Best of Everything Mini Album

One of my downline cancelled our morning get together because it was supposed to rain today.  But guess what...it is gorgeous here in the North Georgia Mountains.    Several of my club members come north to my classes because it is the opposite direction of all the traffic.  Jasper is such a pretty place to live.  A quiet little town with Christmas tree lights on all the trees on Main Street all year long.  :)

Today I would like to share a Mini Album that I will be making with 15 Girl Scouts this evening in Ellijay, which is another small town about 30 minutes north of me.  It is one that I have shared in the past as a vintage album.  I reworked it for the girls to make it more fun and youthful.

The album is made with Lucky Limeade card stock and some of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper that I stocked up on during sale-a-bration.  I used the Blossom punch, which is still available in the Occasions Mini Catalog, to make the flower.  On every indentation in the flower I made a cut about 1/2" long.  This gives the flower a lot of dimension and texture.  The Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch makes a nice center for the flower.  And of course we can't forget the bling!
Normally I would have sponged the very vanilla card stock but decided to skip that step with so many girls.

Pin It
The inside folds out accordion style where the girls will be placing four pictures.  To see how the album looks when it is open CLICK HERE to view the vintage and best friends albums I have done in the past.

I used the fun bird in the Best of Everything stamp set.  I think the girls are going to love this little guy.  They will be able to use the sentiment Memories from Loving Thoughts (in the Occasions Mini) or BBF from Best Friends Forever that is now on the retirement list. :)  Here you can also see how much dimension you get in the flower by making the cuts.

Just a Reminder

You have until April 30 to make purchases from the Occasions Mini.  There will be a few items that will make it into the new catalog in June but most you will not see again.  What's been your favorite stamp set in this mini?  I think mine is the Mixed Bunch.  Or better yet what has been on you're wish list that you still haven't purchased yet.  Order it now while your thinking of it. :)

PS: Remember to check out the Clearance Rack and the Retiring List!
