A Mini Gift that is Huge

For Christmas, I made my husband's gift.  It was a mini-album and he says it is one of the best gifts he has ever received.  He couldn't stop smiling and that smile was huge!

Here's a picture of the cover:

and a few of the pages:

And, yes, the hubby had to laugh about the "Sometimes" part.  LOL!

As for new supplies, I used one piece of red cardstock.  Yes, that's all that was brand new.  The embellishments and even the title pieces all came from either that one piece of red cardstock or were things I had on hand like my old punches or stickers and diecuts from my stash.

I also used one silver and one black pen, two small letter stamp sets and one red and one silver ink pad.  The pages were all pieces of white cardstock I had trimmed years ago for flash cards for my kiddos.  I think I have enough pieces of the "flash cards" to make maybe two more albums.  So, our kiddos may get their own mini-albums in the near future too.

The file for this quick gift is on its way and you should be seeing it soon.

Until then, may your creative time be filled with sweet bliss.
