This is going to be my make-myself-feel-good favourite quotes album. I think I will take it slow and really enjoy the process of creating my first full blown mini album  Smiley  Besides, if I buy all the things that I want for this baby, I shall have racked a bill worthy of a heart attack  Roll Eyes   First toy that I bought was a Dymo, and I am sooooooo happy with it!

It has 21 "leaves" which gives me about 42 pages to experiment to my hearts content Grin  It is 11 cm x 11 cm (approx 4.4 inches) Enough babbling, here are some photos of the more interesting pages.

Front cover:


Front and back covers:



Inside front cover: Yes, those are mini clothespins:



Envelope pocket:



Recycled paper from junkmail and a mini flipcard thing:


















Last page, another recycled page which in its former life was the husband's time sheet:



Back cover:




The tutorial for the envelope pockets is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj85KIIAU4U& I have no words for how awesome Marion from apieceofcraft.com is.

I still have a lot to learn, not to mention more scrap things to buy, *sigh* I would like to get some more embelishments. And a crop-a-dile. The front and back cover would look just perfect with eyelets. The word "art" are wooden letters that I found and painted, in the kids craft section of a stationary shop, well worth a look in my humble opinion, one can always find some good things there that can be easily altered.

Thankyou so much looking! Comments, criticism and more ideas are always appreciated!  Kiss



RIP MJ <3

It's beautiful! I love the wooden letters in the cover. The tiny clothes pins are a great idea for holding tiny artwork in place. The recycled papers you found are amazing, as are your pocket pages. Cheesy

Great job on this, hope you post pictures when it's filled with quotes and experiments.

I really love this! The color combinations, and the different papers and the little embellishments are lovely! And I love the inchies thrown in, on the back cover and the inside front cover - those are inchies, right? I'd love to see more pics as you fill it up too!

Kids craft sections and office supplies sections are my best sources of craft supplies too Grin

How did you do the beautiful black edges on the cover? I'm looking at a WIP and wishing I knew how to do that

oooh I love this, what a great idea, to make this as inspiration for all other artisitic/crafty endeavors!  I'm glad I"m not the only that turns a new craft into a reason to invest in new crafty gadets!  I just got the crop-a-dile II and its pretty cool.  They are $37 at Michaels, and with a 50% coupon, that ends up not being such a pricey tool!  nice work, please post more pics as you go!
