***Warning Picture Heavy***
I decided to make 1st EVER mini album for our hop, I am going to put up to 8 pics of my son and I, I am going to put pics of us and our pumpkins pre-carved since this is not a Halloween album, Thanksgiving pics, Thanksgiving food pics Yum! Also, I will take a pic of us in our front yard next to our tree once the leaves turn red. I named my album "Autumn Blessings" I have been wanting to make a mini for years but I have been so chicken to make one, I don't know why I just thought they were very intimidating, then about 6 weeks ago I saw all of these 4x4 inch Coaster sets on clearance at Michael's for only .20 cents! I thought I can do it, so I did. I am extremely happy with the end result, I love it so much I can't stop looking at it, and of course my 3 year old son loves it, he thinks it's his and he keeps saying "Wow" "Wow' "Wow"! I love him so much he is my #1 fan! I cheated on my Cricut and did this entire mini WITHOUT MY CRICUT!! I know I feel so Guilty LOL!!
Page 1: I stamped 2 images and I embossed one with gold embossing powder, the flowers are Recollections and Primas, the leaf is from the jewlery section at Michaels, the small yellow butterfly charm is a cell phone charm that I bought from ebay. "Autumn" is a brad. "Blessings" is a metal embellishment from Michael's I added pearls to it.
Lots and Lots of ribbon, just the way I invisioned my 1st mini! I know it may seem messy, but I love it so much and I am obsessed with ribbon, so I got to use a lot of my stash!
On every page I used my Zutter Distrezz it all to destress the sides and I inked all of the edges with Walnut Stain and Frayed Burlap Distress ink. Love them!
Page 12 and 13: Left side is a pumpkin ribbon, plan on putting our pic here with out pumpkins, Right side is a silk flower also from the $1 store inked it up, added a cloth thype brad, pumpkin sticker, journaling tag, ribbon and another embellishment that I made with a cereal box. I just put paper that says "Pick Your Own Pumpkin" inked it and on the back put pumpkin stickers...see below
