Want to see what i made for my FIL??

I can't post on my blog because he READS my blog, LOL! so I thought i'd post here... I used some leftovers from my scrappersXchange kit and also some leftovers i had from a previous kit. It is AMAZING how tiny scraps you can use when making a minibook! I recommend that you keep ALL your scraps with whatever kit you buy them with becuase you NEVER know when you might have use for that 1/2 inch by 4 inch strip of paper! LOL! seriously though, minibooks are a great way to use stash, and they make a great gift! I'm making ALL our gifts this year and this is what i'm making for our out of town relatives.

ok, so for this minibook, i used the grafton and providence lines of Scenic Route paper, along with the embellishments that go with them and a few from my stash, notably a LOT of Heidi Swapp Bling, and almost a full pack of Kaiser rubons. I unified the book by using the same kind of pp throughout, and the black rubons throughout and embellishment clusters on each page. (or almost.)

that is too stinkin' cute! LOVE IT :)

as for keeping scraps- yes, i was the same way but have literally deterred from that as i have no more room! i actually have paper purging days! lol- i look at my paper stash and just think that i can make a strip again... what i actually like to do with scraps now is make a card right after i've made the page- then i know it really hasn't gone to waste :)

but seeing what you've made here, it does help having the scraps so you know what to work with- great idea :)
