Scrapbooking Outside the Box!

Hi all! This is Mimi, your blog hostess of the day! I am what I consider a layout girl. I tinker with cards and other projects but layouts are my project of choice most of the time. Then Nikki told me about this company Traditions Studios. I ended up designing a few classes for them using Nikki's fab products and now I think I caught the bug to scrapping outside the layout box.

They sent me this adorable snow globe that would be so fun to sit on any desk! Great grandparent gift too! I used lots of Willow Bee including the new fun!

I also made this utility cup...using the bright and colorful Flaming Butterfly line.

We all know Nikki makes tons of fun chipboard mini's. I really had not done a mini in quite a long time. I had so much fun making this that I know I will be doing more in the very near future!

I loved the Dan the Record Man line immediately! These colors are so great! I used this line and her tag mini to create this album that I recorded some of my favorite photos in. I loved the play on works with record and record!

I kept the same format for each makes for a great clean look!

I covered all the top pages with black cardstock and a strip of pattern paper. I then added just a touch of doodling with a white pen.

The backs were done with white and doodled with black. Each page I made a small journaling spot with pattern paper to record a few details about the photo.

Thanks so much for letting me stop by and share these outside the box scrapping ideas!
