YPP May Many Mini Mini's Swap

Here are my pages for the group Many Mini Mini's at
For the May swap we were to create a 4x4 page out of chipboard with a mermaid & friends theme. I had to make 11 pages and I will get a mini mini album in return with 11 different pages from 11 different people. I had a little bit of trouble with this but I ended up really liking the finished page. I can not wait to see the completed binded book!!

My new Challenge

A few weeks ago I submitted a few of my mini albums for a new design team and guess what...I was one of the ones chosen. I am so excited to be a part of a DT and hope that it helps to keep me crafting! Check out the website and other designers at, they are all so talented! Here is my 1st mini album for the DT.

I made this for my cousin Shawna's gorgeous son Gavin that turned 1 this month. She is a Wonderful photographer and I thought this would be a unique way for her to showcase some of her terrific photos. I made each page to correspond with each month of Gavin's first year also incorporating the seasons/holidays.

I utilized many different paper packs for this mini including, KC & Co, DCWV Prints for the Year and DCWV All about boys. I used my cuttlebug to emboss many of the picture mats, using many different folders. I also incorporated many of my favorite interactive pages, using envelopes or mini paper bags. I used my Cricut to make many of the tags and embellishments including the turkey and skeleton. Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment!

My 1st Mini Album appears I have found a new passion...Mini Albums!! This is my 1st completed mini and it includes pics of my DD's 4th birthday lunch at a place called Piccadily Parlour. This mini was made out of a precut rectangular chipboard album that I bought at my LSS. I didn't use my cricut much but did use the cuttlebug alot. If you have any questions leave me a comment or email me at and I will get back to you.

Here are a few pics of my DD's 4th Birthday. The purses in the previous post were the favors and I added some lotion, smelly pens, candy, wands, necklaces and more! All the girls LOVED them! Thanks for looking and I would love to hear what you think! I also would LOVE more followers!!

Faux Vera Bradley's

These are the purse favors that I made for my DD's 4th bday party next week. As a huge fan of Vera Bradley I was so excited to find out that the only 12x24 paper I could find was this beautiful floral pattern from K & Co. I used TBBM and cut the purse at 10 1/4" on a 12x24 mat. I also used painted chipboard for the initials as well as prima flowers and of course, some bling! I also want to add some Glimmer mist but I didn't have the right color. Let me know what you think. Now to fill them.... :-)
