Hello! Today I would like to show you a mini–album that I made about a month ago.

Vintage Album Page 1I was inspired by Lisa Zappa. What a talented lady she is. Browsing through her blog I fall in love with vintage designs more and more. Her projects are very inspirational. I am always coming back to her blog just to enjoy watching her projects. It’s like reading a book of art. When I saw her travel memories album on Heartwarming Vintage Blog.

I decided to make a mini-album about the little town where I live. I used the template that Lisa created and followed her instructions. Thank you Lisa for such a fun project. For the pages I used a cereal box because I didn’t have any chipboard. And I just covered both sides of a cereal box cutout template with designer paper.

Vintage Album BoxTo store the album I made a box following the directions from a TV Weekly web episode for the Drop Spine Box with Tricia Morris. I like Tricia and her shows. She is very creative and always has so many ideas and new things to try. Even my son (he is 8 years old) joins me each Friday in watching her new shows. He even tried some of the projects with me. He knows most of their hosts by name. Sometimes I think that I am crazy because I can watch their video-tutorials several times a day and I never get tired of them. For the box I again used a cereal box and designer paper that I had on hand. For the first time in making a project I was very happy with the result!

Vintage Album Box InsideI gave this mini-album as a gift to a very nice girl. She was very surprised and liked it a lot. And that was the best thing for me to give it to her and to make her feel good. Giving handmade gifts is another definition of happiness for me. If I made another person smile or feel special, I feel happy and my heart feels warm inside.

Thank you for stopping by today1
Hope you enjoyed looking through my blog.
Have a wonderful day!

Supplies I used for the mini-album and box: designer paper (K&Company, clear stamps (bought at the local craft store bunch of 1$ clear stamps), rubber stamps, flower punch, snowflake punch, dye0basedink, StazOn ink, sewing machine, designer paper for the box from DCWV, ribbons, cereal box, die-cut tags
