Hi Everyone! I'm using my new Sizzix dies this week. LOVE THEM! I checked the scallop square and Note Card off my Wish List…Whew Hew!!! I can see why everyone loves and uses to enhance their projects. At my stamp and scrap, we were using the cut out left overs as frames. To make the mini album you'll need the following:

Chipboard or other lightweight cardboard. Enough for 2 die cuts for the front and back and as many pages as you want for your album.
Designer paper – 2 die cuts per page for front and back coverage. For my 4 page mini, I used three (3) 12"x 12" sheets of Greenhouse Gala available July 1st.
Coordinating cardstock – Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White – Pear and Daffodil new colors
Ribbon or book rings to hold pages
Crop-a-dile – to make holes for rings
Misc. embellishments


 This is a sneak peak new stamp set  Friends Never Fade which coordinates with the Greenhouse Gala paper.
Here's the interior pages and how I decorated. When pictures and possibly other embellishments goes into it the rings will allow for the extra bulk. I'll have the option to add pages too. Once I know the final thickness, then I'll come back with more ribbon on the rings, if needed.




Have fun making and Happy Crafting! ~Dee
