The Clearsnap & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 4

  Travel mini, Raining Cats and Dogs, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (1)

 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!

First, we have this incredible Raining Cats & Dogs travel album from Maggi. Enjoy her video below!

"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

Cute mini albums!

A double wow ! just gorgeous Mini and tags , loving all what you share , thank you.

I'm definitely going to be looking for this brand of ink...love the coordination with all things G45!

They're very beautiful. Love them. Love the hop so far.

I shared the contest on Facebook and Twitter but did not receive the extra 10 points 😒.

The mini album is very cute. Those ABC Prime tags are my favorite - it is one of my favorite G45 lines.

Love the mini and tag albums today! So much we can do with G45 collections and Clearsnap products.

Does it get any better than mini books and tag albums? Not in my book! Love both of these projects!!!

Beautiful minis; I love the "dogs' point of view"!!!
