Sweetheart Mini Album

Awhile ago I was asked if I would do a girls birthday party.  I said yes and I started planning what to do.  My biggest problem is I have a hard time creating simple projects. It seems that no matter how hard I try I always end up with an item or two that has to be cut, or some other simple for me but complicated for others techniques.  So I had to try really hard to tone down my idea to make a simple but pretty mini album for the girls to make at the party.  Imagine six 10-12 year girls sitting around a table, when most have never created a scrapbook, or stamped.  It was a fun, chaotic afternoon, the girls had a blast, and I enjoyed working with them.  Some of the girls didn't do all the advanced stuff I did but they all ended up with some cute little 6x6 mini albums to show off pictures from the party. We had six girls there and they left with 6 very different albums even though we all used the same paper and stamps.  

This is what I came up with and they loved it a 6x6 mini album. I used the Sweetheart Level 2 Paper Pack from Close to My Heart, and the Sweetheart WOTG  stampset.  I had the birthday girl pick out her favorite paperpack before hand and I used it to create my album.

Materials Used:  Sweetheart Level 2 Paper Pack, Sweetheart WOTG Stamp set, White Daisy, Cotton Candy, Black, Tulip Cardstock, Blush, Pear & Tulip Ink, Fiskars Heart Punch, Ribbon from JoAnn's and my stash. Gems from JoAnn's

The 6x6 album was really easy to make.  I used 1 sheet of cardstock to create it,  It has 6 6x6 pages with a 4.5 pull out, in the middle pocket page in the album.  I was trying to type out the instructions so you can recreate the album, but since I am more of a visual person, I will have to sit down and take step by step pictures for the tutorial.  Look for it soon.
