Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

This is a group shot of the mini album all apart. I hear all the time I can't make stuff like that. It's so easy to make one these!!! Honestly I just pull out the stuff I want to use and create. I really don't try to over think it because if I do then I hit a wall and can't create. This baby started out as this....


Like I said in the original post I was just going to create valentine "love notes". Do you remember get those square little notes that looked like mini postcards? That was how the idea for this was born.

* Select some card stock; I picked out Crisp Cantaloupe. I wanted to get at least 4 out of a sheet of card stock so I just figured it out to get that many out of one piece of card stock.

* I decorated them by using the stamps from You Plus Me Stamp Set. I added some Stacked With Love Designer Washi Tape to dress them up. Very in expensive and goes a long ways. Then I drew a line around the edge using the Project Life Journal Pens. Which are awesome for this!

After I got these done I started thinking how much everyone was going to love these and then the idea popped into my head to create a little gift for the moms too. Cause mom's are always on the back burner. lol


Tip~ When creating a mini album like this I try to make each piece have a different looking end so once it's put together it creates and interesting looking edge and stands out.

* I just took another piece of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock. It was a scrap that I had in the pack. I decorated that piece. I added a tag from the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit.


* Then I wanted to add some color to the project. I pulled out my Bermuda Bay card stock and searched through it for a piece of card stock already cut. I used my Big Shot and retired Adorning Accents Framelit to die cut the top of the Bermuda Bay card stock.

* I stamped the end using the You Plus Me Stamp Set.

* At the top I added a Basic Hodgepodge Clip.

* I stamped the heart from You Plus Me Stamp Set and punched it out using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.


* I created a journal tag next. It's important to journal something on all your scrapbook projects. I stamped the images from You Plus Me and Hello Life Stamp Sets.

* I pulled out another piece of Crisp Cantaloupe scrap piece to use. Using up scraps makes it really easy to create a cute little mini album.

* To make the top different I added a piece of 3/4 Basic Black Chevron Ribbon at the top and stapled it.


* I created another piece using Basic Black and Crisp Cantaloupe card stock.

* For a different edge I punched the top of the Basic Black card stock with Heart Border Punch.

* I stamped the images from You Plus Me Stamp Set again.

* To tie in the Bermuda Bay color I added a piece of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim.

Tip~ You want the colors to balance out on your completed project.


Once I was done creating all the pieces I then need some way to hold it all together. I created a little pouch to slide everything in.

* To create it I cut down a piece of Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper. Then I scored it half and stapled each side. I used the stamp from You Plus Me Stamp Set and stamped it in Stazon White Pad.

* To tie in the Bermuda Bay color and balance it I wrapped some Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim around.

* I stamped the love from Hello Life Stamp Set onto a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock. I die cut it out using the Big Shot and Project Life Card Labels to create a tag. Then I finished it by tying Thick Crisp Cantaloupe Baker's Twine around it.

I am really happy with how it turned out! I hope you will try creating your own little mini album. There is no wrong way to create it!
