Easy Peasy Mini-Album



Hey, everybody! This is Robyn here to share something that's super-easy, fast, and fun to make! I'm always eager to start fresh at the beginning of a new year, but I wanted to make something to help me remember some of the wonderful times I had in 2007! I wasn't in the mood for a long drawn-out project that would take me hours to do. I wanted something that was gonna be quick, easy, and cheap to make, without using a ton of product. I also wanted to focus on my feelings about each event, so I did something I never do when I'm scrapping...I journaled in my own handwriting! So, here's what I came up with: A five page mini-album using cardstock, 2 rings, eyelets, stickers, a pen, ribbon, rub-ons (which were created by our own Dee Gallimore-Perry!), a button, and a flower! The only thing I did that actually took a little time was to stitch a border around each page. Even with the sewing, it still only took me about 1.5 hours to complete the entire album. Now for a mini-album that's great timing!

Now for the fun part!
CHALLENGE!!!!
I'm challenging you to make an easy peasy mini-album of your own using a minimum amount of items! Don't buy anything! Only use things you already have in your stash of scrap materials! Your album subject can be whatever you like! Post a link to it here and you can win one of these two Sheer Mini-Albums by Maya Road and my new favorite stickers from Basic Grey's Two Scoops Collection! I'll select a winner on January 20, 2008 from the entries! I'm looking forward to seeing what fabulous creations you come up with! Have fun and Be Blessed!!
