Bright Blossoms Mini Scrapbook

We made this adorable mini scrapbook in my May Stampers Club.  I love how it turned out.  We used the Bright Blossoms stamp set that is on the retired list – it’s a cute little set that you can make various combinations of flowers with.

envie-scrapbook I like the fact that this one will stand up by itself.  It’s perfect for adding photos and journaling and then setting out on a table or desk as a display item.  It would make a sweet gift.   envie-scrapbook-open

Here is some more on how I made it:

  • I used 4 of the Crumb Cake note card envelopes (on the retired list), I tucked the flaps into the inside but you could choose to leave them out or even cut them off.  Tucking them in gives some added stability.  Inside each envelope I would slide a photo or journal a story or note that you might want to stay hidden instead of having it on the page.
  • Place two envelopes end to end and connect them with Washi Tape – I used the Gingham Garden Washi tape which is also on the Retired List.  Then add another envelope on either side – connecting with Washi tape.  So you end up with a “book” of envelopes.
  • I added another piece of Washi tape around the outside spine and then the extra flower piece as a decoration on the front.  envie-scrapbook-back
  • Then decorate the front and the pages of the mini scrapbook.  For the front I added a frame from the On Film framelits cut from Island Indigo card stock – with a piece of Island Indigo Baker’s Twine (on the retired list).  Attach it with bits of dimensionals at the top and bottom and then you can slide in a photo from the side later.  Stamp a vase of flowers and punch with the Decorative Label punch.  Punch a second one from Melon Mambo card stock – cut it in half and layer it behind the stamped one.  Add to the front with dimensionals.  Finish with a little designer button.
  • For pages 1 & 2 –   I used Daffodil Delight and the On Film Framelits – cut a frame and a camera.  Add a Rhinestone to the camera.  Stamp a flower – cut with the oval punch and then layer with the scallop oval punch.envie-scrapbook-pg1-2
  • For pages 3 & 4 –  This page has a Pear Pizzazz frame, Island Indigo Baker’s Twine and another stamped flower punched with the Oval punch and a scalloped oval punch frame.  envie-scrapbook-pg3-4
  • For pages 5 & 6 – For the last two pages there are frames in Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight.  A Melon Mambo Camera.  Another flower punched with the 1-1/4 ” circle punch and a 1-3/8″ Melon Mambo punch.  Finish with some twine and Rhinestones.envie-scrapbook-pg5-6

On each page I added the frames with Dimensionals only along the top and bottom so I could go back and slide some photos underneath.  On the blank pages I’ll plan to add journaling.  Inside the pockets – larger photos.  You could also use the pockets to hold a ticket stub or something else that goes along with the photos.

envie-scrapbook2A really pretty project.  I hope you like it!


Something fun for today – it’s my birthday!

I thought I would do something fun on my blog for today to celebrate my birthday.  I’d like for you to leave me a comment and let me know which project/blog post has been your favorite on my blog.   I’ll pick a winner to receive a free tutorial of the project I’m sharing with you today.  And if you place a Stampin’ Up! order in my online store I’ll send you the tutorial for free.  You can shop my store here.  You’ll have through Friday to leave your comment and/or place an order.  I’ll send the tutorials out via email this weekend.

This is one of my favorite projects that I’ve made in the last few months.


It is so pretty in person.  The combination of Basic Black and Very Vanilla from the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper along with the GOLD accents and the pop of color from the Coastal Cabana it’s just beautiful!

There are touches of gold and the natural elements from the Linen Thread and Cotton Ribbon are unique combination.

coaster-book-pageThe book has multiple pages made out of coasters.  Plus a fun pocket page in the center.


The tutorial has all the details to make this project including lots of photos.  I hope you’ll leave me some love today!


Clear Case Mini Scrapbook

Prior to attending convention I went to a retreat at my upline’s house in Utah.  Wendy and her husband and family are always the best hosts.  The girls stamp and craft and Ted cooks and serves us – it is so nice to be pampered this way!  Everyone that attends the retreat brings a WOW project to share with everyone.  The project that Wendy shared with us was a fun mini scrapbook inside one of our Clear Stamp set cases.  I created an alternate version of this project for my stamp clubs in August.



Some of the main products used for this mini scrapbook

  • I am Me Designer Series paper
  • Around the World stamp set
  • Happy Day stamp set
  • Square Framelits dies to create Polaroid style photo frames
  • Epic Day Washi Tape


page-4-5I like that the scrapbook is inside the clear case because you can close it up and stick it in your purse or bag and not worry about any of the pages getting messed up.

Thanks for stopping by!
