First Sale of a Mini Scrapbook

It hasn't even been a week since I started my venture on Etsy.  I posted some links to my shop on some local face book groups and got a request the same day for an engagement gift of a mini wedding album for a person local to me. I showed her pictures of an album I had just done for a friend of mine who is getting married and she liked it, so I created her a slightly similar album. All my items are one of a kind and handcrafted so no two items are alike. I have fun making the mini albums. They come out so cute.

Here are some pictures of the album I did for my very first client.
 This is a 4 page double sided 6X6 mini album for a total of 8 completed pages. It is held together with a ring and decorated with pretty ribbons.  I just love the purple and the tule.
The first pocket page.  The tag is pulled up so you can see but it fits down in the little pocket.
Two more pages for wedding photos.
Another pocket page, perfect for journaling about the special day or small photos.

The tags and photo mat that fits in the pockets.  The one smaller tag says Happily Ever After.
The back cover.

I love this mini album I almost wish I didn't sell it.  I may have to make one for myself.
Please share my post if you like. I don't have a lot of items on my site but as you can see I can do a custom album very quickly.

Scrapbook Creations

I've been scrapbooking a lot lately. Spending time in my nice new space. I also found  a facebook group called Croppin Chicks that has motivated me a lot to keep up with it.  They post layouts each week and choose 3 winners to be featured "chicks" each week.  I thought I'd post some of my latest page layouts.


 This page came as a kit and I put my own spin on
it for Emily's 14th birthday page.




The Mother Daughter page was fun to do with all the buttons and flowers as a frame.

I made this page as part of one of the Croppin Chick layouts.  I love the way it came out.

 This is a mini album I made for my friend who is getting married in November. I gave it to her at her bridal shower.



I think it came out so cute. I had the directions on how to make the actual album and then I used my supply to make the album pages.



This album I started on our Cruise to Bermuda.  They had a scrapbooking class on board the ship and this was one of the kits you could do.   It was so much fun to make.

When I got home I spent another 4 hours finishing it up with titles and pictures and bling.

I love the way it came out.




So I set up an Etsy shop and put some of my handmade cards up. Just giving it a shot and see if I sell anything. Feel free to check it out at:

I only have a few things up right now. I'm hoping to list more as I go.
