Have you ever had those times when your mind goes totally blank? Well it happened to me when I was asked do this weeks DT spotlight for Fred She Said. I have had a really busy last two week, and dealing with some family issues makes creativity a little on empty. AND to top it off, Fred She Said DT is so awesome and I wasn’t sure where I fit in. So I went to ask “Fred” (Tracy) and I had this feeling she wanted me to do something on the lines of scrapbooking.
I have been teaching scrapbook classes for seven years, so scrapbooking I can do. Many people know that I LOVE to do mini albums. You get such a satisfaction from doing them, first they are cute, second you don’t need a lot of pictures and third you can do one for every theme.
Ok...so back to my blank mind. I have so many ideas wandering around in that thing called a brain, but I still have to surf the net to get some inspiration. I stumbled upon this YouTube video of a very talented lady HERE and I watched how she made a mini album from those legal mailing envelopes. I had my plan!
I started with just regular envelopes and cut a ½” off each end – simple huh? Then scored them, covered them with paper, add chip board and FSS awesome images and this is what you get! I know you are all going to go watch the video, so all them dimensions are there for you. Again here is the link…HERE.
FSS images just compliment this book. This image is Fred's - A lovely blossom & butterfly digi. Hee is a peek of the inside...
This is the left hand side where you can hide some journaling or additional photos. And as you see the digi flowers are just great accents and the faux stitching really makes it look complete.
This is the right hand side and a great place to add a good size photo, the flap also lifts up for more hidden stuff or you can write something special about the person on the inside of the flap!
I'm sorry I didn't get my friends photos in the book. I have a few requests from them to send me an updated photo. So I hope you enjoyed this little scrapbook tour and I know you will enjoy the Youtube video.
So go scrapbook! - Judy
