Something Super FUN and a mini album!!

Oh, I have some fun news today. I've been asked to join the Design Team at Crazy Daisy Kit Co.!!! They have awesome monthly kits and each kit comes with a mini album. I cannot wait to get started!! Check out this sneak peek for March...


And I have one more project to share from the February Kit at Color Me Daisy. When I first saw the colors in the kit, I immediately thought of a photo shoot I did with my kids right before Christmas. My daughter had a holiday dress that was black and red and white and the photos match the paper perfectly. A mini album was born! I used a Basic Grey chipboard album that was gathering dust in my closet and got to work.


I love the felt with the bling!! I covered each page with alternating cardstock and patterned paper, then added my photos. There was lots of fun fabric in the kit that I incorporated as well.





Here are some of the other pages, I pretty much stuck to the same theme. Cardstock, patterned paper and one photo per page. I find that a formula helps me create a mini album much easier.


I really enjoyed making this and will definitely be making more minis in the future!! Thanks for stopping by today!!
