Hi lovelies! I have piles and piles of vacation photos that need to get scrapped, so I thought I might as well start making minialbums about all our travels. This is the first one I created:
I cut the cover pages out of gray cardboard, then painted them with acrylic paint and let them dry properly. After that I stamped images with a VersaMark ink and poured some of my embossing powders over the stamped areas and heat embossed them.
For decoration I chose various embellishments from my stash: chipboard pieces, stickers and buttons, as well as spray inks and stamps. I used all these products for this mini because one of my goals for this year is to use my stash and incorporate also older product and media on my creations. And minibooks are perfect for this purpose – you can combine so many different products and really use your stash up 🙂 .
I also used this Technique Tuesday stamp set for additional journaling. I first stamped the text on white cardstock, fussy cut them and glued them down. I binded the book with my Chinch binding machine.
I hope you get inspired and take a second look at your stash :). Time to start using those products!! Oh, and should you “need” some more, here is a nice shop you could find what you are looking for from 😉 .
