Make Something a Little Different

I absolutely love the Mini Memories Simply Created Album Kit in the new occasions catalog. I decided to give myself a challenge to see if I could make something a little different with the kit. Turns out it was pretty easy to make an assortment of cards and even a cute little bag. I made all of these projects using just one kit and a few extra supplies—like note cards and a few punches.

The “smile” embellishment is a scrap from a previous project that I made using a digital cutter and MDS.

After making all of those fun projects I still had enough paper and supplies to do a fun little album. I decided to use the back of the album for my cover. I love that the album cover and back are clear-embossed. I got this look by rubbing Whisper White Craft ink all over the cover and then wiping it off. 

I would highly recommend snatching up at least two or three of these beautiful kits!

Happy crafting!
