Joy's Life Mini Book Blog Hop

Hello, hello! 
Welcome to Joy's Life Design Team's Mini Book Blog Hop! 
You should have arrived from Maria's blog, Joyful Stamper, if not make sure to start at Joy's Life! This blog hop is one for the books :-) 

I purchased the Artiste cartridge bundle back when it came out, but had never gotten around to using the chipboard that it came with and this was the perfect time! All of the album pages are cut from the Artiste cartridge
Page 1: The sentiment "A surprise is in store for you" is from Joy's Life Tag You're It Number One stamp set. 


 Page 2: The sentiment "U + Me = ♥" is from Joy's Sweet Popsicle Puns. I made the tag by using my corner chomper (1/4") on the bottom two corners and the corner chomper (scallop) on the top two corners. I inked around the tag with Tea Dye distress ink. 
Page 3: The photo mat is 3.25 x 3.25 and will fit a 3x3 photo. 


 Page 4: The sentiment "You are a treasure" is from Joy's You're So Punny stamp set. 
Page 5: The photo mat is 3.25 x 3.25 and will fit a 3x3 photo. 

Page 6: The sentiment "A Whole Latte Love" is from Joy's You're So Punny stamp set. 
Page 7: The photo mat is 3.25 x 3.25 and will fit a 3x3 photo. 

 Page 8: The photo mat is 3.25 x 3.25 and will fit a 3x3 photo. 
Page 9: The sentiment "Hugs & Kisses" is from Joy's Wintery Puns stamp set. 
I left the back simple :-) 

All of the pattern paper is all from Echo Park's Yours Truly paper pad. I really didn't want to add die cuts/embellishments because I love the paper and did not want to cover it up.

What a great album-love how you used the stamps! Don't feel bad I haven't used my chipboard yet either!

Grannie Sharon said...

Cyndy, you did a really nice job with this. I've been wanting this cartridge but didn't want all the extra "stuff". You are making me rethink that! Thanks for sharing!
