Mini scrap book

Hi all,think there is a theme running through this post and the last one ie mini projects lol
Anyway first spotted this on Voodoo Vixens blog and was most impressed so thought I would have a go myself.
All you need is a 12 x 12 sheet of card which after finding the original instructions Here I cut and scored and then I inked up with 'stormy sky' distress ink.



Got to work matting and layering and added a fastener using a circle punch, brads and twine


The best bit was adding my photos and sentiments etc. I used Kraft card for the photo mounts.


I did learn making this though to leave photos when printed on glossy card to dry for a while after ruining the first lot!!!


This was a jaunt to Plymouth to see our middle son


And album all closed up. Undecided what I am putting on the front cover at the moment but thinking another photo and title. Will see what hubby thinks and add later in the week


Anyway thanks as always for swinging by my blog and all your fab comments that you leave me x
