Scrapbooking Blog Hop - UStamp With Dawn and Friends

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.

If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just checked out Melissa Stout's awesome 12x12 layout. Didn't you just love that she put it on canvas?? Melissa is called the Stamp Doc for a reason. She really knows her stuff and is a FABULOUS Designer! She always creates something AMAZING for UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! events!!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.

Scrapbooking is my FAVORITE paper craft, my first love! I enjoy giving albums as gifts and creating them with my stamp club group. The only problem, I never know how many photo spots to include or if they are using horizontal or vertical photos. With the type of mini album I designed it is easy to create as a gift or with a group. Since you are just making the covers and title page tags there is so much freedom and versatility for how many photos you can include and horizontal and vertical are no longer a problem!

Here's a peek at a few of the title page tags inside the album!

I used around 100 wallet size photos in mine! 
When my husband saw it he said, "I thought this was a MINI album!" I replied, "A mini album that can tell the WHOLE story!" I wanted something that wasn't going to limit the memories I could include and this turned out perfectly! I hope you enjoy!

Very creative idea. And I love that that you can make it as big as you want and add more later -- unless of course you fill the whole ring right away :)
