Well, this is it. My last post with products from the Stampin' Up! 2010 Summer Mini Catalog. It's been a great mini catalog from which to shop!
Today, something different to end it all – scrapbooks!
Earlier this summer, when my husband became ill and was in a hospital far from our home for over a month, I made a small scrapbook with photos of his garden, his pets, and his Bridge Club friends. He truly did enjoy having this small scale album with him to show off to visitors, not to mention the nurses and other staff! The album, of course, was from the Summer Mini Catalog. It holds 6" x 6" scrapbook pages, and has an Old Olive Polka Dot Designer Cover. The papers that I used for the album from the Island Oasis Set coordinated perfectly with it. (Oooh – think Christmas Colors for this Album, too!) The other album in this photo is another album for 6" x 6" pages, and its cover is a Bashful Blue Herringbone. The papers that I used for this album were from the coordinating paper set, Travel Journal. For pictures of both sets of papers, just go back a few posts on this blog. They're wonderful to work with in scrapbooks!
While there are 6" x 6" scrapbooks in the 2010 "Big" Catalog, none of them has a designer cover – they have a Natural Linen cover and are quite a bit more expensive than these lovely albums. So you might want to consider stocking up!
You might well ask if there are going to be albums in the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog. Indeed, there are. But both of them are for 8" x 8" scrap pages. A nice size and I'll definitely be buying – and using! – them. But for efficiency in the use of Designer Series Paper, you can get 4 pages out of one sheet for a 6" square album, while the 8" square allows you no more than if you were making a 12" square album – one!
Here is a full description of the albums. You have only until just before midnight Mountain Daylight Time tonight to order them! I'll be glad to place the order for you if you'd like to call me (808.854.6145). Or you can go directly to my website and place the order there!
Tomorrow: Welcome the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalog with another of the Diva Coffee Break Team's color challenges!
