Mini Album

Happy April Fools Day!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  Today is another fun Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge.  The challenge is NO RULES!  So create anything this week and join in on the challenge for an opportunity to win a $50.00 Gift Voucher at Simon Says Stamp.

I recently acquired the Jenni Bowlin Mini Album clear stamps and couldnt' wait to create a mini-album using these stamps. 
The front image is so lovely that all I did was mount it on embossed cardstock sponged in a coordinating color. I colored the images using STAEDTLER watercolor pencils.   I added a Studio Calico wooden bird inked to match.

I stamped the frame on multiple pieces of white cardstock for each of the pages in my mini-album.  I also created a mask and reverse mask by stamping the image on copy paper and cutting the center of the frame out.

I created mats for each of my pages by cutting white cardstock for each of my pages and embossing them with different embossing folders.

I then selected coordinating quotes to go with my images.  I also picked a background for each image and quote.
