Pink Paislee Heidi Swapp 6 x 6 mini

Hello Hello
How is every one's weekend so far, hopefully full of fun & laughter. I have had a pretty good weekend I must say - my youngest daughter turned 4 on Friday so yesterday we had her birthday party. We ended up having a house full of friends and family with lots of cupcakes thrown in for good measure.
As for today I have another Christmas mini to share with you (originally I had 7 to share with you but 5 of them have sold this past week) this one however is still looking for a good home so I thought that I'd share it while I still have time. 
This one is also a chipboard album, it is a 6 x 6 which I think is probably one of my most favorite sizes to work with and to scrap in, they are well suited for a shelf and you can get a lot in them all the same. I covered the pages of this one with Pink Paislee's Heidi Swapp line, the colors in this pack are bold but traditional. And the patterns sport a fresh, young look to grant an overall appeal.
This album has 4 chipboard pages and then I also added in a couple of white tabbed CD envelops as well so that there would be extra room for all the holiday photos.
There are several journal spots and to keep with the times I added in more than a few Insta frames that are so popular right now. I did also include a couple of cut guides so that someone who doesn't scrap would have an idea of how to cut their photos down so that they would fit properly in the frames.
This book also comes with a couple of double sided photo mats that I included in the CD envelopes - and of course I added in the cut guide for that one as well. It'd be a shame to have such a cool little photo scrap book and not be able to get your photos to fit right so I have hopefully taken the difficult part out of the equation.
Last but not least I also added in a couple of my extra large photo corners to provide safe keeping of those extra photos that didn't get the prime spots. I know that if you are anything like me, you always end up with way too many holiday photos and not a clue as to how to pair them down, so in this album it is possible to over fill it with the ones you really, really like.
Here's just a close up shot of the Insta frame and the journal spot that I made using one of my dies and a clear stamp.
Here is a peek at one of the inside pages; the extra large photo corner on the left that I made and then the CD envelope on the right that has the double sided photo mat in it. As you can see from the photo above there is also a journal spot that came with this paper collection that I've included as well, I think I added in 2 or 3 of those.
Here is a close up of this Insta frame which  is from the paper collection as well. I think it came from the embellishments pack that coordinates with this line.
I simply love all the papers in this collection, as I mentioned they are bold but they have a very traditional flare still that I like a whole bunch.
So check it out and see what you think, try one for yourself. Again I think that the 6 x 6 chipboard books are simply one of the best to scrap - they are usually fast and can be as simple as you make it. If you are not sure where to find the chip board, Michaels usually carries a few blank books in the 'impulse' bins that line the front of the store, just be warned that these do get addictive if you're not properly supervised... (lol-just kidding-that's just me)
Okay well, there we go. Hope you'll give this a try and let me know what you think.
