I love chipboard mini-albums but usually it takes me a while, cause I'm fussy :) My last mini album took about 10 hours to make... this month's book only took me about 2 - 3 hours, including picking out my pictures.
My favorite thing about this set is that the pad of paper is die cut to match the mini album.
Check out this great Olivia collection from BoBunny.
And here's the add-on kit. I totally LOVE adhesive chipboard stuff. It gives texture and depth to my project without me having to do anything :) The BoBunny Journaling stamps are a fave too. Anything with swirls...
Watch for a video post comming soon! (well probably tomorrow, but anyway...)

Another special new thing I've decided to start is an "Add-On Kit" for each monthly collection. There's always soooo much stuff I want to put into the kits I have trouble knowing where to stop, so for $10 this kit contains more goodies to enhance each kit! Love, love love the wild cards with this collection :)
And finally, hope you enjoy another video!! I've decided to offer a 40% off coupon to every subscriber to my youtube channel. If you have signed up yet, go on over & get your 40% coupon emailed to you when you subscribe!

I saw the blackboard ideas in one of my old Stampin' Sucess magazines. I altered it & added my own twist to it :)
Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red, Whipser White, Chocolate Chip - paper; VersaMark, Creamy Caramel - ink; First Day - stamp set; Corner rounder, White embossing powder, Ruby Red 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Round Tab punch, Stampin' Up Billboard Sizzlit strip die - accessories;
To make the red tops of the apple, I punched out a tab in ruby red paper then slid the tab back into the punch from the bottom so that only the top 1/4" was inside the punch. Next I punched again to get just the little sliver of red. The stem & the seeds were just cut with sissors. Both the edges of the black board & the edges of the apples were inked with Creamy Caramel.
This card was also inspired by a card I saw in Stampin' Success.
In an attempt to keep the price down as well as give a nice gift, I decided I would make "school year" calanders that started in July and ended in June. I wasn't sure what to use as a calendar base but I found some great 12 x 12 cork tiles at Wal-Mart. I could slice them down the middle with an exacto knife & have perfect 12 x 6 bases for my calenders. I also made cards but I'll share those in another post :)
Here's the calendar
I think it turned out great & even with all the embellishments, I think they cost around $10 each. I printed the month tags from Word & then stamped the month name, some decorative stamps & distress ink on each tag. It's a little difficult to see but 10 of the tags have white circle "reinforcements" around the hole at the top. I really think this little added bit, with the distress ink, made the tags. The big flower to the right was made by punching a scalloped circle, poking a hole to mark the center & then snipping down from each side of the scallops towards the poked center.
The July kit is Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday from www.createdwithpaper.com.

This was BoBunny's Sophie collection from www.createdwithpaper.com. I wasn't crazy about the purple in the kit when I first saw it but this turned out to be a fun kit! I made three layouts in a flash... I've been trying to finish up the photos from some of the older album's I've started, so the 8x8 layouts were for my Florida trip album. I really like how they turned out.
