I'll be sharing my newest layout for 
THE PAPER BAKERY 
tomorrow, but I didn't realize that I didn't blog
about the mini album that I posted last week...oops!


 I've used the October Paper Bakery Scrapbook Kit and these adorable
house-shaped cut-outs from Michaels.  Seems to be the perfect size for minis, which
 are my first love when it comes to papercrafting…if I’m given a chance to do one, I do it LOL.
I used a Unity Stamp and I Top punch by Imaginisce in creating the
sun and clouds :)

 First, I simply trace the house pattern onto desired paper, trim out
and begin embellishing.  I also cut out a smaller photo/mat for each page.





 I like to incorporate my favorite paper punches...they're great for
layering and adding a unique look to your album. 
 Mini albums are a terrific way to showcase a special event in your life!

And if you're in search for a kit club, then check out the
amazing project, mixed media and scrapbook kits available each month
 Goodnight!  Be back tomorrow :)

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
