I have a great project to share with you and today (no, actually it was last month but last month was a little crazy so it slipped by me!) is my ONE Year Blogiversary! I was just shocked that it had been so long already! Wow! I guess I started it just after my little baby boy was born! I can not believe how much my scrapping has improved in the last year...I think there is a big difference and I look forward to more growth as a crafter in this next year! Please see the bottom of this post for the RAK info...
Julie's Mini Album
This post will be pretty photo heavy and I am going to let most of the photos speak for themselves.
All the paper in this mini album is from DCWV Safari Kids stack, as well as some of their matching embellishments.
Other embellishments include the IRock tool, other assorted gems, Prima flowers and twine.
I made the album out of cereal boxes. Each page cut to size and then a long piece to act as the cover. This is the first time that I have ever constructed an actual mini of my own making. It took some time to put together but I was so pleased with it!
A question I had always had when thinking about making a cereal box mini...was a single "sheet" of this enough, thick enough to hold its own? And the answer is yes! A single piece of cereal box covered both sides with cardstock is sturdy enough!!! Glad I found that out because now I am not so afraid to make more of these!
Oh I almost forgot another detail would be the inking. All the inking was done in 2 shades of Distress Inks. Broken China and Vintage Photo.
Now for that RAK...to celebrate this occasion I was thinking of what I could do and I thought I would take example from this post and make one custom mini for one of you!!! So, only if you would like to follow my blog, that would be great but otherwise, please leave a comment here on this post with an email address to contact you. I will email you with a few questions so that I can make sure that the mini will be something that you will really like! I just hope that you'll leave me some time to make one because its not something I want to rush!
Lets see, you have until August 16th to leave a comment. I am on vacation coming up next week so that will be the day I return! It will give me something to look forward to when I get home!
Thank you to the friends I have made through this blog and to those that come by and leave comments, and even for those that visit and don't always have time to comment (as that's a part of life).
