My Minds Eye Lost and Found Rosy mini album

I mean, really, these little 6x6 paper pads are such a bargain. They're so well thought out by the designers that your only job is just to pick which method you want for your mini and then you just start glueing.  So that's just what I did. I even used the back sheet of the paper pad pack for the spine binding and then just dressed it up with a little bit of Dazzle tape. On the cover is a library pocket mounted on a piece of chipboard with a transparency in the pocket...I told you I love those, right? and then some Tim Holtz metal pieces, with a hair tie through a rivet in the last page to hold it all together. Oh, don't you just love your Big Bite? How sweet it is! You have one, right? Cause they make riveting so stinkin' easy!! You really should have one.
Go get one!

My Minds Eye Lost and Found Union Square mini album

Chipboard 6x6 tab mini using the Lost and Found Union Square collection by My Minds Eye. You have to pick up these little paper pads. They're so easy to use.

I got mine at The Front Desk along with some cute embellishments and ribbons.

Some Tim Holtz tape, some tags and  chipboard embellies ....

then added some transparencies and a few other goodies from my stash.
And woompah! Done in an afternoon!

Life is short ladies! Have yourself some
"me-time" and create!

The Paper Studio Farm Fresh mini album with Recipe Box and Recipe Card Holder

Easel without recipe card

For the inside I cut black chipboard dividers for the recipe cards, and made a triangular wedged easel piece from chipboard. I then attached a pocket by gluing a narrower piece of chipboard to the front of the easel. It holds a recipe card for easy reading while cooking and tucks itself nicely into the front of the recipe box.

The paper was so cute I had to do a mini with it. Right? This one will hold tons of photos or recipes. Each page has an extra pocket in either the top or sides for more pull-outs, tags, or recipes. 

Thanks for looking!
