From Recycled Card to Mini Album

Wednesday, May 29, 2013


Please keep reading to the end of this post.
I've got 2 special events to tell ya about!

Do you have a lot of cards just lying around?

Well, it's time to upcyle and use them on a project.

I cut up and used an old card on the cover of my new mini album. It was so fun to make using the Clear Scraps 8 x 8 tabbed chipboard album.  

I used tons of American Crafts & GCD Studios goodies too. 

Here are a couple of my fave pages.



Be sure to check out the Clear Scraps store.

They have loads of supplies for your next mini album.

Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the Clear Scraps Blog Hop & Giveaway!


And there's something fun going on out in blog land!
