Mini Photo Album & New Website Features!

Before I share my project for today, I wanted to let you know that my website,, has some new features, so make sure to check it out.  You can now view my website on tablets and mobile devices.  Some of the pages have new looks and layouts as well, so take a little time when you have a chance and look through it.

A while ago, I shared a cute Instagram Card made by Laura Diamond and had mentioned I was going to use the design to make prom albums for Samantha and her friends.  I made 11 of these adorable little albums and tailored each one to the friend with their own special photos.
The finished size on my photo album on the left is 5-1/2"x 5-1/2".  Laura's card is on the right.  For my cardstock, I used 12x12 Crumb Cake, then some Soft Suede, Basic Black, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz & Tempting Turquoise.  A silver glimmer heart and White Chalk Marker make it pop. Gorgeous Grunge adds a bit of texture to the front.  
I left room for each of them to do some journaling.  

I used the @SoSocial stamp set for some of the pages (retired).

We had 11 kids in the group.  Photos were taken at the Memphis Botanic Gardens - beautiful! 

Ssmantha's date likes to be held - lol.  Since this is Samantha's album, there are a lot of photos of her.  Each person had more photos of themselves, along with the group photos.  

It's always fun to do a couple collage pages.  We had dinner at PF Chang's in Memphis.  
The ride over was a lot of fun. Sparkling cider and hors' devours.  

One side had all the fun photos. 
The other side had all the more formal photos.  

I used 5-1/2" x 12" pieces of card stock to make the album.  They were scored at 5-1/2" and 11", then folded and overlapped with the 1" tab.  I used the PL Corner Punch for all the corners.  Super simple to make and a great keepsake.

Take a clean white canvas. Add some texture and layers with the images in the Gorgeous Grunge set. You'll love the depth and movement you get with a little bit of grunge.

Our clear-mount stamps are made of the same high-quality red rubber as our wood-mount stamps, but they're repositionable. They're precut and ready to go. Temporarily mount these stamps on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for space-saving storage. You'll only need one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately). Our premium red rubber will last for years and give a superior stamped impression each time. The stamps come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Quantity: 5 rubber stamps

Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): b, d, h
