CHRISTMAS 2010 MINI ALBUM!!!



Well I must say....this mini album took me one week to complete!! YES ONE WEEK!!!!!! I got the idea of this mini from my friend ROSE. She is super talented and after I saw her Utube video, I ran out of the house and headed to Office Max where I picked up the 9 x 12 envelopes in white. Thank you so much Rose for all your inspiration - your work is amazing!!!!!

So for this mini I used the ENTIRE collection of Webster's Pages Sweet Season Collection........I used each and every pattern paper, the trims, fabric ribbon, journaling cards, and even some Webster's Pages Sparklers and all these items can be found at GENERATIONS CRAFTING. In addition I used some Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, New Petaloo Canterbury Collection Flowers; LINDY'S STAMP GANG Glitz Spritz Desert Moon Cactus Gold and LINDY'S STAMP GANG Starburst Stain Golden Sleigh Bells; Martha Stewart Large Snowflake and Dove Punch, Martha Stewart Fine Glitter, New Tim Holtz Tag Die for all the smaller tags, Tim Holtz Memo Pins, Antique White Acrylic Paint, 9 x 12 white envelopes, ivory crochet thread, SU corner ticket punch, Tim Holtz Odds and Ends 100th Stamp Set, Misc Lace, Prima Flowers and Prima Say it in Pearls and Lace.

Since the mini is thick at the spine, I knew I could not use rings and I didn't want to use my Bind it all so I did a search on Utube for BOOK BINDING and I came across THIS VIDEO........OMG it was awesome. I must admit, I watched the video over 10 times before I did my actual book binding, but when I sat down to to it, I bound my mini in 10 minutes......literally!!! I don't know the name of the gentleman, but his tutorial is amazing and if you have not tried the Coptic book binding, you really need to try and bind your next mini this way....you will LOVE IT!!!!!

Ok now I leave you with pictures of the mini and be sure to check out my Utube channel for the video HERE.

Have a wonderful week!! Oh wait a couple of announcement for next weeks sales:

Next Wednesday I will be posing all the sales over at GENERATIONS CRAFTING as well as Coupon Codes right here on my blog .
In addition LINDY'S STAMP GANGis having an amazing Black Friday sale you do not want to miss - SEE AD ON MY SIDE BAR!!!

Hugs, T

  13. Hola! Your work is beautiful! Love your blog too. Please tell your son that Danny started playing at the age of 4 too. One year he did not give me the photos on his baseball uniform and I asked: where are the photos? he would not answer. Finally after a threat or two he told me that they were hidden under the bed and he would not give them away because one day they would be worth a lot of money! The kid had a vision....
    He has played nonstop since he was 4. We use to live in Pembroke Pines until last year. I look forward to meeting you at paper Niche next January! I just became your follower.
