Lovers Mini Scrapbook

G'day everyone!

Over the last two nights, instead of doing my economics assignment (which is due on Monday and I have over 1700 words still to write... and then there are other assignments to be done too), I made a mini!
It was inspired by Laura's (from following the paper trail: http://followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com/) tutorial found Snip and Fold Mini Album.

Mine is a present I want to give to my boyfriend. We've been together for over two years and I wanted to create something that was cute and had some of my favourite photos in it of us too from special points.

This mini was so easy to make - the main bulk of it is made from one A4 sheet of paper. REALLY easy. See the tutorial above for more info.

This is also the first time I've tried using tags! It was fun. Might do it again some day.

So... the pictures!

The cover... pretty blank, not much to it... but I love the pattern on it! Just made from card stock.

An example of the tags. So one side is a photo of Terry and I (with a stamp underneath) and on the back is some journaling (another cute little stamp - this is another one from my favourite red dot shop!)

What the inside looks like.

I LOVE THIS BUTTERFLY STAMP! I have a lot of fun aging the paper too.

So the next thing I am thinking of doing (once I do my assignments for uni) is experiment with distressing ink - since so many scrappers go on about it... and try some embossing too. Looks cool.

See you for now!
