I couldn’t resist making minis. I love that I can quickly put together photos and write down my thoughts in one adorable, tiny album. So when I saw that this month’s Artz De Scrap Challenge is to make a mini accordion album of my favorite things, I quickly registered and actually was among the early birds. As a result, I was going to get a mini accordion from the lovely Artz De Scrap ladies. Unfortunately, time is almost up and I still haven’t received mine so I made my own accordion album from scrap. I finally got the mini that Liza sent by mail last Monday. I will definitely use that for another project. Meanwhile, here’s my entry.
I am happy about this mini because I was able to use old stash – my Basic Grey Scarlet’s Letter pack! I’ve had this pack forever and I haven’t even opened it. I bought it because it is just so pretty – as with any BG product – but I just don’t know how to use it! None of my photos seem to match the papers. Anyway, I took a aleap and just started cutting the papers and voila…my Favorite Things album.
I also used my Twinkling H2O stash here. I painted over the chipboard swirl with crackle paint first, then painted Twinkling H2O once the crackle paint was dry. Love the effect!!!
Some of the stuff I included in my list of fave things are…
My fur family
A good book
A warm bath
Making cards and giving them to friends
Beautiful sunrise and sunset
Sugi’s Kari Kari Kari Yaki
