Mini backpack album and sweet treat card

Yesterday I did a birthday party for the lovely Jessica and her friends. I was very impressed with how they put their projects together and their enthusiasm!

We made two projects, a mini backpack album and this cute Sweet treat card. Of course the girls were more interested in the “treats” bit once we got to that.

Cardstock: Real Red, Whisper White, So Saffron and Certainly Celery. patterned paper from Sweet Nothings kit

Stamps: Something Sweet

Accessories: Sweet Treat cup, Scallop oval Punch (still available from the Spring Mini), Round Tab punch and 1 3/4″ circle punch.

I found the instructions for this mini backpack album by Deena Perreault and  the girls thought it was really cool! The instructions used little magnets for the closures but that looked a bit fiddly apart from the fact  I didnt have any! Instead I used a silver brad and punched out flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch to slide the lid behind to hold it closed. Effective and cute!

Isnt that paper gorgeous?! It is from the Kaleidoscope pack in the Summer Mini Pack AND the Organic Grace hostess set goes with it so beautifully. I used that set to decorate some of the pages inside. Sometimes it’s hard to tell just what the papers will look like from the catalogues but this is one you wont be disappointed with as its even better than it looks in the book! Im definitely going to order another pack soon.
