January Swap Mini for Amanda!

I signed up to do my first mini album swap over at Life on the Scrap Beach and was paired up with Amanda in the UK. I asked her what colors she liked and pinks and purples was her answer, so I went through my paper stash and decided on this one, it is Raspberry Tart from Stampin Up and is retired. I wish I would have stocked up on this one cause now the ladies want to do it for a class and I don't have any more of this paper. If any of you have a pack you are willing to sell, let me know!

I made a rose on the cover using Tim Holtz's technique. He shares how to make these on his blog and there is also a YouTube video how to make them, I think Marion from A Piece of Craft does it. I also attempted to make some homemade Glimmer Mist for the leaves.

I made this page an accordion album page. You undo the ribbon closure and then open out the accordion part.

This is my favorite page, it is so very feminine and flirty. It is simply an acetate pocket with three tags, but love how it turned out.

And here is one more of the pages. The album has a total of 6 double sided pages. Below you can view the video of the entire album. It was great fun to make. Now to ship it. Shipping is expensive to the UK but that is okay, this was fun to do. I may even sign up to do another!
I hope you enjoyed this mini album preview. I have another great valentine's mini album kit for sale and will try to get that posted tomorrow.

Tammy, your blog and youtube videos are fab, can't wait to try my hand at your flowers! You may want to delete the above 'asian writing' comment since you may not realize that it appears to be porn.
