Everyone on Facebook, okay will probably not everyone since not everyone papercrafts, but everyone who papercrafts...well probably not everyone who papercrafts since some of them don't do mini albums...okay a few folks, were talking about Michaels having some 6x6 mini albums for like a fantastic price. My friend Carmen, who also tends to be my personal shopper, made a trip to Michaels to pick me up a few...okay more like 12 or something *okie suddenly remembers she owes Carmen some cards for that trip* because I knew I had some 6x6 pads that came in the Webster's Pages warehouse sale boxes and I thought those would be great for the projects.
Since that time I was organizing, as we all know I do frequently, and found that I have quite a few 6x6 pads! I have Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket *okie laughs because she spelled Cricut first and then had to change it*, K & Company, 7 Gypsies, and a few other companies little paper pads. I am not even really sure where they came from since those are not a size I generally buy and I know most of them probably had to come from some very kind people who sent them to me. I did some basic math and I think in order to use up all the pads I only need about 286 more of the mini albums and I will have all the 6x6 pads gone! I might have exaggerated a little here but I do know I am able to get at least 3 mini albums out of one of the stacks and that includes extra for matting pictures and dressing up the pages.
This is really slow going for me because for some reason I am crafting slow this week. I think I am still trying to unwind from all the Valentine cards I did.
Here is the cover I did night before last and last night I almost completed the inside pages. Maybe I can get this one and another one done over the weekend.
I have made quite a few mini-albums over the years and I don't have not one to show for it. I always think I am going to keep one for myself and then wonder what I would do with it since I have scrapbooks full of pictures and I prefer big pages over little ones. I do think mini-albums are great gifts for folks who don't scrapbook but have a few pictures they would like to keep in a special place.
How many of ya'll do mini-albums?? Go ahead...discuss....
