So onto my project to show you. As part of the perks of this job I got the tablescape kit as part of a bundle for free. This kits retails for $19.95 (133463)

I loved the projects shown in the holiday catalogue using this kit but my mind was already planning on using it as a mini album as soon as I saw it.

Heres what I came up with.IMG_6008-001 You can get three mini albums out of this one kit. I am planning on two more with my recent trip to Utah with the 2013 Incentive Trip. Sorry about the Photo bombing but here are the insides. Theres some pockets and flaps on this album ..which is how I love to make mini albums. I come to do instructions and I go..’how did I do that again’? lol

As you can see I used a few other items for embellishments  which included basic black and crushed curry chevron ribbon, crisp cantaloupe stretched ruffled trim, very vintage buttons, essential hardware clip,  epic day this and that stickers, sweater weather DSP and some sahara sand and calypso coral cardstock. I love how this turned out and cant wait to start the next one. The album measures 6″x8 1/4″. I am planning on putting them all in an A4 box and decorating the outside too.  IMG_6009 - CopyI managed to get 22 little photos into this album which was just perfect!  I got my new World Map stamp set while I was making this so of course that had to be incorporated into it somewhere lol.
I LOVE the chalkboard labels and the chalk board marker in this kit!
Now local girls ..I will be teaching this mini album if you just want to do one or I will have the whole kit for you to buy at the class.  For demos I will be providing instructions ..just waiting on my tripod  which is still coming home from the US.
I havent used two of the items in this kit yet but plan on using it on my box. Ill show all three and the box soon!
Righto off  enough photos already and off to blog hop some more..this time to the lovely and talented Ann Wills.
Hope you enjoy our blog hop!

    What great projects teamed with wonderful memories Delys. I just love what you have created. Another item to add to the wish list (I really need to promote:)) Thanks for sharing your inspiration

    When I saw this kit, I thought “mini album” too, I certainly wasn’t going to risk gravy stains by using it on a dining table setting. I really like how you have used everything to create your album. Very inspiring. Thank you.

    LOVE your little album Delys (& highly impressed you finished it so soon after coming home). It’s amazing what you can do with the kit when you put your mind to it. Thanks for sharing.
    Inky wishes, Di
