a mini album

I do not make too many mini-albums. I have plenty of ideas and things I'd like to do in the mini-album category, but I just never seem to get around to them. I'm too busy making cards or keeping up with my 12x12 albums. I'm trying to change that trend of mine . . . this one was inspired by something I saw recently in a Stampin' Up! magazine. A few favorite pictures from Seth's first six months.

Most of the products are from Jillibean Soup with the exception of the twill from Stampin' Up! and the mini letters from Making Memories. I put glossy accents on the little cars to give them a little more dimension. The letter S is a chipboard letter I've had forever (don't remember who it's by) and I used modge podge to cover it with paper, then I sanded the edges. All of the circles I cut from the thin pieces of cardboard that Costco puts in with your enlarged pictures. I then used modge podge on both sides to glue the patterned paper on. I sanded these as well. I think I need to do more mini's, they are quick and easy! Have a great day!
