This layout uses a lot of white space to help balance the weight and busy-ness of the photos-- lots of photos (6 on this one, but you could fit more depending on how you crop them). There's a spot for journaling. It was tempting to add more embellishments because the kit comes with so many, but I contained myself. There will be tons of extras for mini-albums, cards, and more layouts. If you would like to easily create 48 pages in '09, please email me.

Learn how to create a mini album with pockets from just one sheet of paper. The book measures approximately 3 1/2” square and contains 14 pages to decorate (plus front and back covers).
Please bring a 12” trimmer with a scoring blade, adhesive, and a selection of photos and ephemera related to your chosen theme (see ideas below). An assortment of papers, embellishments and materials for binding will be included.
These little books are a great way to document pieces of your life—make one for yourself or give it as a gift.
Ideas for your Book:
· Holiday traditions
· Gratitude Journal
· Baby Milestones
· A few of my favorite things
· Vacation Memories
· What I love about you
Note: Depending on the response, we may need tables and chairs. When you reply for the class, could you please just let us know if you have a folding table and/or chair that you might be able to bring.
Please let me know if you can make it; leave a comment here.

ps I didn't have the new SU! paper on hand for these samples, so your projects will be a whole lot cuter (and more colorful)!
This little holder is the perfect size for snack-sized Kit Kats or 4 crayons (thanks, Darcy, for the brilliant idea!). One paper pack yields 72 boxes. Additional supplies: 12" trimmer with scoring blade, adhesive, black, orange, and white paper (approx. 4 sheets of each, or purchase from me for $.35 ea)
Drink Holder Hanger:
Note: you supply the treats to fill the boxes and pouches.

The book is made from two covered pieces of book board and 4 badge holders (with the holes trimmed off), and bound with a screw post. Confession: I didn't end up using the ones I purchased for this project as the book was too thick for them. I used some posts that I had saved from a broken post-bound album. Funny that I saved them, yet didn't figure out what I could use them for until I had bought new ones! Finished size is 2 5/8" x 3 3/4", perfect for tossing into a purse. Each photo is backed by a collage of the boys' favorite things right now (subject to change weekly, so it's neat to capture this small moment in their lives).
Stampin' Up! sets used: Stamp of Authenticity, Genuine Articles, Letterpress Alphabet, Classic Alphabet (all retired--all great sets, what were they thinking?!)
