One of my advertisers here on the good ‘ole blog is Crazy Daisy Kit Co. and they extended an invitation to me to be their May designer. I have (so far) been a huge disappointment, but I intend to turn this around, this week.
If you’re not familiar with Crazy Daisy, one of the most important things to know is that each of their monthly kits includes a mini album of some kind …
This month, the album is the antique tag album, from Kaiser Crafts.
Ever since I got to talk about mini album on the Paperclipping Roundtable I’ve been back at my ‘old ways’ of making minis. I’m pretty excited about what I created early Saturday morning.
I wanted to show you the “before” album, because I did something a bit different with it. I broke it up and used it in combination with three 6×6 page protectors/pages and bound the whole thing with two binder rings. The papers and embellishments in the May kit are not my usual go-to colors, which made the whole thing even more fun.
After just fifteen minutes I was feeling that wonderful FLOW thing and the rest of the day followed suit.
I chose my album theme from a My Mind’s Eye card in the Life Stories line.
I’ve been quite introspective lately and I’m eager to capture thoughts and questions and potential directions in this album, as I contemplate things that have touched my heart. I guess you could say this will be my first ‘art journal’ of sorts. I totally anticipate adding other papers, etc. to the album as I go.
I’m sending LOTS of other images over to Crazy Daisy, so hopefully they’ll post some there too.
I’d LOVE to do a quick giveaway before I head out to Donna’s Inspired event on Wednesday, so how about leave me a comment with something that touches your heart and I’ll pick one to WIN a May kit from Crazy Daisy Kit Co.
You have until tomorrow (Tuesday) at 4:00pm pacific time. I’ll post the winner at 5:00!
p.s. I had a wonderful birthday Mother’s Day (hope you did too)
Thank YOU for all your kind and helpful comments!
