Join the May Blog Hop!

This is my first time ever in participating in a Blog Hop.  Wouldn't you know that I'd get too sick to get onto my computer for a few days and miss posting my link in time.  Hopefully everything will link the way it should now that I'm able to get around a bit.  Hate the flu!!!

If you've come to my Blog, you'll just have left Rosa Ivelisse Vazquez's blog.

The project that I'm showing is the "Card Size Mini Album".  First shown in the "Paper Celebration 2012 Edition" of ink4u...this is my take on it.

I've kept the colours very muted, using neutrals, so that the sepia pictures which I've put into the little album would be showcased.

Looking at it from the front you would think it was simply a card...and it fits into a medium sized envelope easily.  Then you open it and it becomes a mini-album.
From the back it looks so long and large, but it really does fold down into a small card-size.
My final picture shows it from a higher angle.
If you've enjoyed seeing this project on my Blog, then I invite you to continue the blog hop by going to Alison Plummer's blog next.

  1. Great album,I love the papers you have used. A xx

    1. Thank you. I'm just sad that they're retiring.

  2. Beautiful! I made this same album, but with different papers. I LOVE the paper you used and may have to CASE yours! TFS!

    1. Thank you. The Mocha Morning Specialty paper is retiring at the end of May and I will miss it.

  3. Love this...your vellum flower is so pretty...and use of the tasteful trim...just gorgeous!

    1. Thank you. It does look like vellum, doesn't it? But it's actually three layers: Very Vanilla cardstock, Crumb Cake textured cardstock and Early Espresso textured cardstock.

  4. Heidi, sorry to hear you were sick, but glad you made it! I truly care for yuor health more than for the project, but is such a wonderful pleasure to see how beautiful your project is. I'm so happy to see how creative you were with the DSP and colors you used. Love it!

    1. Thank you. I should have posted earlier and put it on a "timer" but then I didn't know I'd wind up getting ill. Just glad I didn't wind up letting the Blog Hop down. :)

  5. What a beautiful album! Hope you feel better soon!

  6. Welcome to the hop. Hope you are feeling better. Great job on your project.
