Friends with Flair and Mini Album

Hey there!  It's Friday and time for a little friends with flair.  I've missed a bit due to Hurricane Sandy but I'm back.

During the storm last weekend I attended CKU and met some great crafty friends and had a blast.  I came home inspired to make some scrapbook albums.  For one class which was all day we created a bunch of 8x8 pages for a scrapbook.  It was all using one great kit from Echo Park Paper called Everyday Eclectic.  So we used that collection along with some other accessories.  I loved doing  it that this week I decided to make my own little mini album.

I had a chipboard album from Michael's and had recently picked up one of Michael's brands - Recollections paper pad called Jolly Holiday.

Here is a quick snapshot of what I made:


Here are the pages:





I used just the paper pad (6x6) as well as Stampin Up Real Red.  I didn't use many stamps but I did use one big Unity Stamp on the 2nd to last page (which is why I figured it was ok to share for friends with flair).  This Unity Stamp is called Remember This Date (Echo Park).

The cool part is I typed up instructions for these pages and posted them on a new to me site called instructagram and I'm submitting them for a chance to win a Cameo!

You can check out all the details on Instructagram HERE!

Well that's all for now!
