I'm not much of a mini-maker. I really don't have a place to put little albums, don't want to stick them in a drawer, and most times I just don't finish them.
But this month when the big box of goodness arrived on my doorstep, I was a bit baffled with what to do with the Maya Road chipboard banners. I had recently posted some faux TTV pictures on my blog, and I thought that it would be a good idea to start a charm bracelet-esque mini for my travels. One that I can add to each time I visit a new place.
I used my most favorite Studio Calico stamps - the Noah Alphabet Set to abbreviate the cities, like "NY" , "CHI", and "NOLA."
Then on each opposing banner, I wrote what year the trip was, where we went and who I was with.
I added my pictures, some bright bits, punched holes, inked the edges with Black Staz-On, sprayed a layer of Charcoal Mist and strung it all together on a ball chain.
I'm really excited at how it turned out. Are you a mini-maker?
