'Christmas Wishes' mini album

"As a scrapper, I want to preserve my family's lives and what better way to do that than by preserving the kids' Christmas wishes for the year! I had them write in their own handwriting."

Creative Imaginations mini board book, Making Memories letters, Fiskars punches, Pink Paislee paper, Hero Arts Stamp, Stickles, My Minds Eye journaling spots, Prima flowers, button from personal supply, Martha Stewart bakers twine, Stampin' Up photo corner punch, glitter snowflakes from Michaels, Hero Arts gemstones, K and Co. lace.

'Family' mini album
"I made a second mini album for a gift to a cousin. I put some family pictures in it for her, but I made sure that there were some empty spots so she could add her own choice photos."

Supplies for 'Family' mini album:
Cover: Simplicity pattern, Making Memories red ribbon, Making Memories tag, Anna Griffin chipboard title, flower (unknown supplier), The Paper Studio brad, rubons from We R Memory Keepers, K and Co. paper.
