Wintertime 6x6 Mini Album... the beginnings.


I fell in love with the Wintertime Collection kit by Echo Park and knew I had to create a 6x6 mini album with it.  I have the perfect pictures of Cole when he was around 1 1/2 years old that will be perfect for this. 

It's still a bit of a work-in-progress, as I need to go to the scrappin' store to pick up some binding coil so I can bind it.  Plus I think I might add some clear sparkles here and there, but I'm not sure yet.

I'll post what it looks like when it's been bound with my Cinch tool, which I just took it out of its box today to take a look at the instructions.  The binding part always makes me so nervous, like I'm going to mess it up.  I guess I should practice with it a bit on scrap before attempting to bind my album.  ;)

Anyways, here's the rest of the unbound pages...






















Hope I've inspired you to create today!  And please don't leave without checking out my blog candy post...

Happy creating!  :)

Very cute as always! I love it and the paper. Where did you find the paper kit? Did you buy the 6x6 chipboard pieces or did you cut them from a bigger piece? You'll have to let me know how the cinch works as I have that on my wishlist too! Thank you for sharing. Always love looking at your artwork.

OMGosh Vicki, you are not going to believe this - A: I love this paper and just bought it at my lss too! B: I used it to create a layout at last weekends retreat - pics on blog soon & C: The winter pics I'm using are Ben just before his 1st birthday. How crazy/creepy is that?! I didn't get the stickers that came with but love what you've done with them for this mini. So cool, now I'm going to have to go back and buy more of this paper. :)
