Well hello there paper peeps! One of my favorite things to do is wander around big ole flea markets looking for treasures, it’s so relaxing! In May I went to an awesome market and of course I ended up with sooo many cute pics! I wanted to make a chunky mini album, so I chose my fave shots from the stack and grabbed my Cream & Sugar Kit!
In the kit you’ll find a cute file folder by Pink Paislee with a pattern on it. There is 1 of 3 different folders that could be in the kit, but any one of them will work perfectly! They’re all super cool.
Take your folder and plan what part of it you want to use as your cover. Then just cut the folder accordingly, punch holes, and tie with that gorgeous black May Arts silk ribbon in your kit! Easy peasy! If that isn’t going to be enough pages for you, just cut pieces of patterned paper to use as fill in pages!
I really wanted to complete the book in one sitting, so I kept the same kind of design on each page, just switched up the papers a little bit. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel everytime you do a page of some sort! Cut yourself some slack!
I love this little guy. He likes to party.
Here’s the inside of my book! (It’s real pretty and chunky in real life, how come pictures never do our projects justice? I’m not that good at project photography anyways, especially in my dark little home but you get the general idear 😉 )
This market we went to doesn’t let you keep your cute ticket to get in, so it’s a must that you take a picture of it lol! Along with your breakfast of champions..
Eye candy was everywhere!
I can’t believe how cute my mom was in her new wellies that day!
It’s important to find peeps that get you! Like ones that don’t mind if you act like an idiot and take them down with you..
I was very well behaved that day, all I bought was a white drawer unit for my ink pads. Yes, it took a lot of will power. No, I could not feel my arms the next day.
I haven’t added my journaling yet, I like to do that all at once when the book is all finished. Won’t this little coffee cup be the cutest journal spot to use?!
I’m thankful for all of the lovely ladies the Lord has brought in & out of my life all these years. Even if you’re kind of a “loner,” it’s important to have at least a few good close peeps or even one good peep that you can call and laugh with, cry with, have a meltdown with.
These boots are made for walkin.. you can always bet you’ll find a mirror at least somewhere in a flea market, stick your tootsies in there don’t be shy!
I like to add a little sprinkle on the back cover..
