Mini May-nia with Marcia + Giveaway!

Hello Quick Quotes friends, happy National Scrapbooking Day to you! 
Marcia here today with an awesome Be Bold mini album to share with you. Quick Quotes has the most amazing albums that coordinate with the new paper collections! That's right, the inside pages coordinate with the collections.
Making a mini can be as easy as just adding your photos or getting  more elaborate and piling on the embellishments! The Be Bold collection is perfect for ALL of those summer pictures, not just the beach! Take a peek at my State Fair mini...

I strategically covered up the surfboard on the cover with pattern paper to make it appropriate for my state fair photos.The inside front and back covers also had surfboards that I covered up.

Love the bright & fun. I like paper crafting because it's relaxing & fun.

Amy E said...

AWESOME mini!! What a great job!!

I love the fact that, with scrapbooking, I'm leaving something tangible; my work, my hadwriting, my photos, for my kids and grandkids to have one of these days when I'm long gone! My mother's journals are something I highly value, and I know my kids will feel the same way about my scrapbooks.

Paper crafting is one way for me to share a little bit of me with my family & friends thru scrap booking & card making. I'm always looking for new ideas and you have so many. Thank you for sharing.

Judy said...

What I love about paper crafting is that you can give everyone the same supplies and you will always have a different take on how to us it. Thanks for sharing some great ideas with us.

I enjoy paper crafting because it's relaxing. I sit in front of a computer all day and to be able to create something with paper and glue is very therapeutic.

I was also like to know where did you get the tilt-a-whirl and ferris wheel die cuts? Thank you so much for sharing.

Diana Soling said...

I love that when I am done with my project/projects my family will have an heirloom that they can look at, share and keep for future generations. I love to watch my children pull out the scrapbooks I've made and look at them time and time again.

Liz said...

There is just a feeling of satisfaction when I'm done with the page. Sometimes it's a card, a bag, but nonetheless it's just a happy heart. It really is therapuetic for me. It totally relaxes me and I just enjoy the hobby.

Unknown said...

I have never done a mini book before, I find them intimidating...but this makes me want to try one. I love this book it's so cute!!!


Jean Bullock said...

I love papercrafting. You can make almost anything with it. You can use so many processes with it. It can be folded, cut, textured, painted. Besides. I just love paper and I always have.

Crafty Aunt Dee said...

Love your mini of the state fair. Your love of scrapbooking shows in this book with all the wonderful colors and shapes and how you used the papers, the templates and die cuts. Every recipient of papers crafts such as this mini knows that they are special and loved and future generations will know how we lived, loved and laughed. I love leaving something from the past for the future.
