SBS Scrap Project #1 - Mini Album

 Happy Sunday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying the last of it.

I'm here today with my first project for the Simply Betty Stamp Scrap Team. I'm very happy to be part of this team because the gals are great, Betty is the sweetest and its going to be quite challenging to not create cards. :) We are in charge of providing you with scrapbook lo, mini albums, altered items, etc inspiration. But of course from time to time Ill play with the card gals because they are just to many darn cute images to color up and play with.

And speaking of sweet great gals, my DT sis Lelia created my very own watermark featuring Valentine Betty. Isn't she the cutest?!!??

Our first project is a mini album/explosion box featuring the adorable Jude and the Rockers. Since I created an explosion box last weekend (seen here) I decided to create a mini, mini album that can be used alone or can be part of a bigger album. This is the front of it (I miscalculated my measurements so I needed the ribbon to hold it together, haha I went overboard with my layers and it made my mini super thick. But I solved my measurements problem and will be able to make another one soon)

When you first open it up this is how it looks - Off the bat you have 3 spots for pictures or journaling.

Then you open the flaps and you have another 3 spots for pictures/journaling plus the extra space that the pockets give you. In each of my pockets I added 3 tags.

My tags were originally created as ATCs but then I decided to not waste picture space (lol) and move my ATC info from the back to the front and make it part of my art :) I was trying something new (for me) and I love it. I used all 6 Rockers (counter clockwise) Ariel, Oscar, Lilly, Jude, Ali and Brittany.

Here's a closeup of of my Ali ATC and my pocket stamped with Ariel. All of my sentiments from KAndrew's fabulous mix and match Amazing You set (benefiting Doorways for Women and Families - an organization helping those escape and survive Domestic Violence)

I hope you join us this week for your chance to win 3 Brand New Jude and the Rockers clear stamps. They are awesome and who doesn't love free stamps. Make sure you hop on over to SBS Challenge Blog to read all the deeds and to see the gorgeous projects from my DT sis's.

I will be playing along with:

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Flourish
Simon Says Stamp - Stitching
Spoonful of Sugar - Stiching
