Welcome to Day 4 of the Clearsnap Blog Hop! Have you been having fun hopping along with us this week? We've certainly had a great time. Today, we have awesome album ideas from Maggi Harding and Donna Espiritu. Let's jump in the fun!
"It's so fun to partner with other manufacturer's and use their products with ours. I am totally loving Clearsnap's ColorBox G45 Decades ink. Not only did I use this ink on this mini, but I've been using it with all my projects. The colors match so perfectly. I've never had a good blue to go with my G45 papers, oh but now I have ColorBox Bon Voyage Blue and it is perfect as are the other 5 colors in the Decades collection.
We always travel with our dogs as we can't bear to leave them behind. I thought it would be fun to create a mini album and record some of the fun travel stories told from a "dog's eye view." I started with a Clear Scraps acrylic and chipboard album and added a couple pocket pages to it along with Ephemera cards. Tip: Used Ephemera cards for journaling and make them into pages for your mini by simply punching them on one side. No need to mount them on cardstock, by using them this way you've got plenty of room for journaling on one side and a beautiful image on the other.
I put together a video tour of the mini and I think you can read all the journaling in the video but if not, visit my blog where you can peruse each page along with the journaling. http://scraptravelbark.blogspot.com/" ~Maggi
