Mini Albums from our 6x6's

For the next 3 days we will be showing you lots of ideas for quick and easy mini albums to make from our mini pads.
The cool thing about them is they have 2 sheets of each paper
and you get tags and mini die cuts and then all you need is  some stickers or chipboard and maybe a few extra things to put in with it from your stash...  
Each of our DT made a diffrent style of album so you will have lots of great ideas to use...

This mini album was made with the New Splash Fun
mini papers and stickers.

Patterned Paper: (6" x 6" Rock Star paper pack) Best Creation. Accents: (RS012, RS013 from Rock Star collection) Best Creation. Other: (Accordion album) Paper Source

Something to decorate with...

Altering things for our homes is a fun way to pass the time,  its a great way to save money and you can create something fun that you can say you did and give a
huge proud smile to everyone who see's it !!
 You can also find some cool thing at a flea market and refurbish it to make it new again to give to someone special you love :)

Our Design Team created these things today  to decorate with and we hope you get some great ideas to make something today for yourself....
Products used:  IA001, IA002, IA003, IA006 Other products used: 3 ring circle wooden wreath, spellbinders basic hearts,  silhouette machine, black and white cardstock
Notes:  I die cut two different sized hearts and layered  them behind and on top of the circle. I popped up the smaller hearts  using best creation foam tape. I die cut the big heart and the title from my silhouette machine.

Tip:  to punch the butterflies out, I peeled the silver off of the  backing and then it was so easy to cut with the punch :)


Lots of Fantastic projects with Spellbinders....

Being a partner with Spellbinders this year is a real treat for our Design Team.  There are endless possibilites for using the dies and with them you can create some  really fantastic pages, cards and projects !!!
Our Design Team today each got different die and made something really incredibly cute with it to share with you!!
 Karen created these really cute flowers using a die cut from Spellbinders.  It is just gorgeous how she used  the paper to create this flower and this super cute page!!

I die cut  Labels Fourteen die templete with the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur and folded as shown.  I then folded the die in half the other way. Glued the two sides  together forming a petal. Repeated 3 more times and  adhered them together forming a flower as shown.
