7 Gypsies "Beautiful" Mini Album (BM DT Project)

I just love TRANSPARENCIES... and so I thought I'd share how I use them on my projects!!

But first... I have to say.. i LOVED loved this project :) I used the 7GYPSIES LILLE collection that is really funky-vintage-interesting--crazy FUN to create with.. YEP.. There was no holding back! All the great colors, papers, rub-ons.. oh my!  My desk is a joyful mess and I love it! Ok.. enough rambling..  I had such a great time creating this 'Beautiful' mini album!! All the 7Gypsies products I used can be found at BlueMoon Scrapbooking!  

 And one more thing: I know you can make one too! Just try it!! You'll LOVE IT! Here's a quick peak at some of the pages!:)

I am trying to do mini albums more and more hoping that I can come up with one somewhat as beautiful as yours, but that isn't happening. What I need is your album to put on my desk to use as a guide to help my creative juices flow!!! You are truly an amazing women.

  78. I Love the mini. Very creative. The paper line is very nice also. I struggle to use transparencies as I do not know what glue to use to attach them to the paper. Like when you made the transparencies into pockets that the tags came out the side, what did you use to hold the transparency down? I know you are busy, if you had a minute to tell us what you used it would be very much appreciated. Visit your blog everyday. Thanks for sharing!
