A little bit mini...

So if you haven't checked out all the free classes over at 2peas you don't know what you are missing!!!!
The Thinking Inking class, and the weekly mini album class are just toooooooo fun!

Here is a little mini I made up for this weeks mini album class. I don't normally make mini's, infact I think this is only the 2nd one I've actually "finished" although I have to still fill it in. ;)

Please click the image to see it a tad bit bigger and better :)








Supplies:

Cardstock: Bazzill basics, Doodlebug
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon
Epoxy Stickers: ColorBok
Stickers: October Afternoon
Chipboard: Melissa Frances
Chunky Glitter: Doodlebug
Ink: Distress Ink
Pen: Ranger


The adorable library cards for the inside pages were made by Shimelle, and can be found on the class page. Just print 'em off and go :)
I also want to point out that if you are adding glitter to "raw" chipboard you are best to paint, ink, or cover it in matching colored cardstock, or the color of the glitter gets horrible muted by the raw chipboard. So for my second popsicle, I coated it in worn lipstick distress ink before I added the glitter. Lesson learned. lol
Also, If I'm not using the glittered piece in an album I always spritz it with hairspray because it helps set the glitter. But I wouldn't do that in an album.

Hope you are all having a great week! DH has this week off so I've been a bit scarce. Just enjoying the summer with the family. Take care!!!
