Mini album

Hi everyone,

Today, it's time for another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week there are no rules! It's an anything goes challenge. Anything goes and anything is possible. Get your creative juices flowing and join in the fun with us!

My project this week is a mini album I made from my last trip to London. The reason why
I made it a mini is because, a while back I bought a sweet little mobile printer, the LG Pocket Photo. A good time to use it. The printer is compatible with a smartphone and can easily taken along on vacation to immediately print the captured images made with your smartphone.
You probably already know that I always like to make my own albums and this one is also made by me. I have used a Ring Binder mechanism. The We R Memory Keepers Covers are cut to the size that fits the sheets of the 6x6 inch Memorabilia Paper Pad from Teresa Collins. I'm so in love with this beautiful paper line.

It's a lot of work to fill up a whole album, each page is actually a project on its own. Well this album has 36 of them... The embellish the pages I used the matching Memorabilia Border Strips and Brads along with lots of other pretty stuff.

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

  12. Really wonderful Sandra! What neat things they make in today's world. I don't even have a smart phone much less a little mobile printer!!! But I think it is great that you do!!
    I too love London - I watched a TV special the other night about the Tower of London. Your journal is quite a nice keepsake and I particularly like the use of the little bag as part of the journal. Great idea!!
