Scrapbooking "Together" Mini Album (BlueMoon DT Project)



HI Everyone and HELLO STELLA ROSE!!  Here's a fun and very SIMPLE (5 pages) mini album I made using the Stella Rose Hattie (My Minds Eye) paper collection! This mini is dedicated to all you NEWBIE scrappers out there .. its to show you can grab a gorgeous stack of papers and create an easy and fast-GORGEOUS mini in no time!! You got to make one.. Your going to love it!! 

The scrappy happiness I used for this project can be found at BlueMoon Scrapbooking!! (See the end of this post for the list of products used) 

I LOVE-love the bold teal and mustard colors in this collection and had so much fun creating with the amazing prints, super cute stickers, tulle etc.! Ladies.. no worries ***  YOU CAN DO IT *** :)

Ok.. and whoa! I have to tell you.. here's some of my favorite things about this "together" mini:

  • Creating envelope pockets using the black paper bags (best-ever favorite pages to do because its fast, super-cute and you get 2 pockets (bonus) so you can load it up!) ta-hee.. **simple pleasures**
  • The teal feather by Feather Expressions Art! Holy smokes.. I rarely use feathers on my projects but LOVED the color of this teal flower! and I love how it adds such soft beauty to the mini!!
  • Webster's Trendsetters Designer Trims.. ooh I'm in love! I couldn't get enough.. I wanted to add trim to every page and had to refrain... ta-hee. 


Here's some picts (photo heavy) to share.. I hope your all having a great scrappy time!!
