Layout of the Week - Spring Mini Album Project & a Punky Sprouts Sneak Peek
This project takes 3 pieces of cardstock, up to 14 different patterned papers, a couple feet of ribbon, lot's of adhesive and TONS of patience. In just a couple hours you too can have a fun little album with lot's of little doors to hide all your photos & journaling.
I hope you're in the area so you can sign up for my class! It really is much easier to make the album with a little help from someone who's done it before. The instructions are kind of confusing, but if you're handy, you can probably make one up from my photos. Give it a try when you have a couple hours & want to try something new.
I've got to get back to my projects for this week, two Punky Sprouts albums. I've been very excited about Punky Sprouts for a few weeks now. I had the chance to crop with one of the owners, Doralisa, and we had so much fun that I left pumped to give one of her albums a try. It's so fun to be able to share a local Portland area scrapbook manufacturer with all of you. Keep reading for links to the Punky Sprouts site & Facebook page, so you can ask your local scrapbook store to carry these awesome albums!
Here are a couple sneak peeks at my first project, using Chatterbox papers & embellishments, along with some great Kaisercraft paint colors!
