It’s really a nice feeling to get excited about what I’m doing. This latest project, which I’m calling my “Lipton” Tea Bag Mini Album, took me just a few days to finish. That’s how I know when I’m doing something really nice–I simply can’t wait to finish it.
The paper covering the box is from DCWV’s Main Street collection and the embellishments are from Making Memories, K & Company, and Prima. The paper that I used to make the “tea bags” is from Stampin’ Up!
Look around. This mini was made from an empty tea bag box. While I do a good amount of recycling, every once in a while I come across something and I think….what could I do with this? This is the shape of my memories. What is the shape of yours?
Robyn from Injoy Stampin, this mini album kit is for you! Congratulations and thanks so much for participating!
I appreciate everyone’s wonderful feedback and comments. It makes me feel good knowing that you like what I’m doing. I promise to keep creating as long as you keep coming back to visit, so I hope to see you soon!
Alright…alright. I can reel in the mushy stuff but only long enough to tell you that this blog post is all about you! My readers, subscribers, and anyone else that has spent any part of their time reading what I have said and viewing what I have created.

It’s Valentine’s Day 2010. Have you told yourself that you love YOU? I hope so. (Insert cheesy stuff here.)
My gift to myself was an acrylic mini album about me. It covers a few of my accomplishments and some of the places I’ve traveled. Although I’m dedicating it to my son, I really wanted a way to remember who I was before he got here. I’m still the same person at my core, of course. But having a baby does change you. It has to.
I hope that my son loves that his mom did a lot of things before he met her. Even more, I hope that he loves that she doesn’t want to forget.
Here are some photos of the album. As much as I tried to capture the details, it is much better live. Click HERE.
I was determined to make some type of album using Stampin’ Up!’s amazing Top Note Die. I’ve seen the die used to make pages for handmade books or the die cuts are crafted into boxes and baskets. The reason why I like this die is because it is so versatile. I have used it to make cards and now, I’ve successfully been able to finally come up with a technique to create this mini album. I’m so excited to share this demo with you. Should you wish to purchase the Top Note or any of the supplies that I used to make the album, please click here to get to my Stampin’ Up! website. You can order products 24/7. Thanks for watching!
