Radom Scrapbooking Projects

This week I decided that instead of having a theme I would show you a couple of random projects I did which shows a little how the scrapper's mind works, well, at least how I work...all over the place but organized... contradicting but true!!!!

I make cards just about every day but  I am not one to take measurements in every project so eyeballing comes in handy for me but as for the envelope it obviously has to be measured.

This week I found a way to make an origami envelope with a 12" by 12" piece of paper that just so happens is a perfect fit for my cards which is usually anywhere from 4' or 51/2" by  6" or 7", ( a wild guess )
Here is a couple of pictures I took, it is so easy to do!

I also got adventurous and tried making a mini book which I have to say didn't turn out to bad!! It does call for taking measurements so next time I will have to heavily consider that option if I want perfection. I designed the cover of the book with my own homemade glimmer mist... I used modge podge on white card stock, sanded it and added different colors of glimmer mist.

Check it out and let me know what you think! I also covered every page inside with decorative paper and distressed the whole book... this picture was taken before I distressed it.

You don't always have to start an album from scratch, in the next picture I used an album that was tucked away unused. All I did was cover it with paper and embellishments! I also painted the binding and added ribbons. This is another incomplete project but will be done in the next 2 weeks , I will be sure to post a picture. I am a scrap hopper which means I jump from one project to another, it is more interesting that way for me and I always end up completing each one. To each their own!,  right??
