Creative Inspiration Wednesday Stash Challenge

Have you been over to Creative Inspiration, joined the forum and checked out the daily challenges yet?  No?  Then you dont know what you are missing out on!!

Wednesday was my turn to challenge all with the Wednesday Stash Challenge, and this is what I came up with:

Today I am challenging you to create a project that includes some buttons, flair (or badges), tags, some old patterned papers and one new item.
The older pp's I used are from Maja Designs and the 1 new item I used was the word strip from 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy Dreams collection.

Hello All

Appears I am behind with my reveal for Sunny Day Crafting :( - actually a whole week behind!! Where does that time go?

The challenge this week was Fun Folds, and this is what I came up with:

























I trolled through Pinterest until I saw a card I liked, then I went to Youtube to find instructions. For some reason my measurements were out, but I got there in the end.

Creative Inspirations January Mini Crop

Its mini crop time at Creative Inspirations and you have until the 29 January to play along.

Again, this year, my theme for the mini crop was 'A Year in Review", but this year I did something a bit different

Last year my Year in Review project was a layout.  This year I wanted to do something different. So, I spent some time on Youtube and found this amazing tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-yymOqQJ0U.  I was hooked, and knew that this is what I wanted to create for my mini crop project.
It took me just a day to create, so not at all time consuming.
The hardest part was photographing it, lol.
The instructions give 8 double pages,and 7 pockets.  The size of the album was problematic for the number of photos I wished to use. So I used washi tape to stick together a number of photos and then stuck them into the album.  Due to the size and space available, embellishing was minimalistic, lol, jut a few stickers here and there.  The tags contain all the journalling for 2016.
