Today I have something a little different to share with you....a handmade mini album! The method I used is fairly versatile in
that you can make it any size you like, with as many pages as you need,
and create anything from a smash book to a mini scrapbook album. Since I
was in need of a new "birthday book" I made each two page layout into a
monthly calendar to keep track of special days.
To view a step by step tutorial for creating this little book, visit the Cropstop blog today
If you'd like to make your own "special dates" book, I also included a free zip file on the Cropstop blog.
Just a little tip: Using a paper stack takes "all the work" out of picking papers - they all coordinated and match perfectly because they all come from the same paper pack!
Supplies and Tools:
Mosaic Memories Paper Stack (Recollections), Grey Burlap Flower (Canvas Corp), Burlap Trim (Petaloo), Teastained Flower (Petaloo), Burlap String, Canvas Fabric, ATG gun, Cardboard, Kraft Cardstock, Scallop Tags #2 die (Sizzix), Biblical Impressions stamps, Ground Espresso Distress Ink, Small Flower Punch, Pearls, Blossom Trim Punch (Martha Stewart)

It's a great album and such a neat idea to keep birthdays inside. I really need to make one of these. Thank you so much for sharing with our first challenge at Mini Album Makers. Hugs, Autumn
What an awesome project!!!
A birthday album is such a great idea and how lovely to have a handmade one. The flower on the front is beautiful and I love the layout of your pages! Thank you for joining in our first challenge at Mini Album Makers. Anne x

A birthday album and a paper stack are both great ideas! Thanks for joining the challenge at Mini Album Makers Challenge blog.
What a great mini. I love that huge Canvas Corp (?) flower on the front. I have some of the burlap flowers in my stash...but I am hoarding them. ;) Your project is so inspiring! Thanks for joining our FIRST challenge at Mini Album Makers!
What an elegant album - very sharp and chic. Thank you so much for playing along with the first Mini Album Makers Challenge.
