I Am Me Tiny Mini Pocket Page Album!

Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa, 2014_05 051

Following on from yesterdays Mini Photo Album post – here is the last of the 3 projects we made in the I Am Me Workshop last year.

This must be one of the smallest mini books I have made..but it is perfectly shaped in its tiny-form!!! Thank you to fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Kirsten Andresen in Germany who posted her Mini Pocket Page Book directions here – which made my make rather easy!! ( Yes CASEing Kirsten again!! I really do love Kirsten’s work…)

So first closed up… going to miss that retiring ruffle stretch ribbon for projects like this!!!

I Am Me Mini Photo Album

Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa, 2014_05 045

Just realised that I haven’t shared my I Am Me little mini books before… long overdue! Especially as these were really popular projects….

We made these in a workshop last year…along with my original Suitcase Album.  We loved these little books…so much so that I am planning on re-making them with some new papers when I get my hands on them!! So we should be making these at our all day Saturday Workshop on 19th July…. 3 spaces left if anyone would like to join us….

Less than 5 days now till the new 2014-15 Catalogue ordering goes live!!! And I can’t wait!!

So the first Mini Photo Album was CASED from this fantastic Mini Travel Album project by Claudia at Scundy Scrap.  As soon as I saw the papers and the stamps – I knew this mini book just had to be CASED!! Thank you Claudia for posting the template …truly stunning project… I really can’t wait to make another….

Wildflower Meadow Happy Day

2013_06,Jems Team New Catty Swap,Happy Day, Wildflower Meadow (3)

Just a quick share today.

This is a card I made a year ago as a Team Training swap and as the make n take for my New Catalogue launch…but I have realised that I never shared it on my blog and that one of the stamp sets, Happy Day is sadly retiring. Though happily… the Wildflower Meadow background stamp gets to carryover……

2013_06,Jems Team New Catty Swap,Happy Day, Wildflower Meadow (2)

Now I loved this little card…until I decided to do 40 as a swap card!! Luckily everyone else loved it too…so it was worth it in the end… But note to myself… never do embossing of panel trios in exactly the same order on a card for a swap ever again!!

I love each and every stamp image in that set…it has been used a lot over here! Definitely a keeper for me!! Well it has BIG words…..

Happy Day
