Miss Empire Scraps Mini Album

As many of you already
know, Archivers are closing all their stores across the country. I have to say, I'm broken hearted. This was the only true scrapbooking store around. The girls that work at our Fairlawn store are tops... always helpful and friendly. The Penmaker even enjoyed going in and showing the ladies his latest pens. This will be a real loss to me as well, I'm sure, of the scrapbooking community of the Akron/Canton area. We visited the store for the last time this week, so I could use what was remaining on the gift card that I received for Christmas. Since everything was marked down 50%, I was able to get the Cinch binding machine I've been wanting.
This was my first try...

not perfect, but a good beginning!

After going through one of
Stephanie Miller's older blog posts (here) and watching the video, I decided to use up some more scraps, making a mini album and binding it with my new toy tool.
The album is 4" wide
by 5.5" tall; the size of an A4 card. I used Kaisercrafts Miss Empire and a few scraps from their Take Note. Everything else was from my stash. Next time I make an album though, I'd like to do as she suggests and not put anything away but make a mini from what's left over.

I'm linking up with:

I'm heartbroken over Archiver's, too. They were the only store left for us. My gang attended one last crop there on Saturday, and it was so sad to see all the bare shelves. Everything was gone except for just a small handful of things. At least they are selling out....
LOVE your mini album! You make the MOST amazing albums, my friend!
