Transparency Mini Album

A short while back,
my blog friend, Ros... Mikey's Mom... and I did a swap of supplies and she sent me some transparency sheets that I had been wanting to make into a mini album. I've been captivated of late by the creativity of Stephanie Miller. As nearly everyone knows, she is in the forefront when it comes to mini albums. After watching her Ustream for Prima where she created a fabulous mini album with transparencies, I just had to try making one. Believe me... it wasn't as easy for me as it was for her.


I had a hard time
lining up my paper to the transparency, and in the end, I trimmed some of the edges with my Tonic scissors. Unfortunately, I'm one of whose people that are bothered by slight imperfections in their projects and I "try" to fix them all. (Probably why it takes me so long to make a project.)

The papers are all
from the Glitz Vintage Blue 6x6 pad and a few scraps of the 12x12 sheets plus the Vintage Blue Whatnots die-cuts I got from Audrey's Etsy shop last year. I thought it was time to use up this collection and make way for a new one. I'll try to give a brief description of what I used and how, but I may need to break this up into two posts... we'll see how this goes!
