Cross Canada Blog Hop - Mini Albums

Welcome to our June Blog Hop featuring Mini Albums. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop. If you came from Brae's Blog then you are in the right place!

To make my Paper Bag Mini Album, I used 3 of Close to My Heart's Designer Series Paper Bags (1 Lagoon, 1 Ruby & 1 Honey) with CTMH Lagoon, Ruby, Honey & White Daisy cardstocks.

To put the mini album together, I stitched the 3 bags together down the middle.

To embellish the mini album, I used CTMH's Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and CTMH's Black Sequins from the Black Mini-Medley Accents Collection.

I used CTMH's All the Details, Wavy Blooms, Have a Happy Day, Geek is Chic, Hodgepodge Alphabet (discontinued), Love Life, Art Philosophy - No Name, Take Note - Artbooking, World Traveler, Hooray Bouquet, Paper Bird - Hostess Rewards, Sightseer, Capture the Day, Handmade and Pretty Petals stamp sets with CTMH Lagoon, Goldrush, Ruby & Black inks.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Janet's Blog.

If you get lost along the way, there is a full list of the blog hop participants at the bottom of this post 

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring the Operation Smile Stamp Set.  So mark July 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

My next order deadline is:

  1. I love your version of the paper bag mini! And I love that you made the focus on you...selfies. That would be a really hard one for me to do. I hope your family appreciates this too!

  2. This would also be a great school years mini album, each page is a photo from a school year. You would need more pages to go through from kindergarten to high school, but I think it would still work.

  3. This is such a fun project! Fun colour combo, fun embellishments. I love how you even finished the last page, such a nice touch.
