I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season. I did and I am so thankful for family. So how many of you made New Year resolutions? I didn't, I stop making them about 4 years ago, because I never can keep them. I'm just thankful to see another year and have such wonderful family and friends.
I am here with Mema's Crafts. Our sponsor this month is Bluemoon Scrapbooking. Winners of our January challenge will appreciate a gift certificate to go shopping at our sponsors array of crafting supplies. Bluemoon is a great store to shop, I love that they make videos when new items are released. The challenge is Anything Goes (ATG). Don't you just love when you can do anything you want in a challenge? I was sent a 6x6 paper pad from Simple Stories called Hello Baby. A perfect paper pack to make a mini album. I was so excited when I saw it, I knew right away what I was going to do. I took a class this summer at my Local Scrapbooking Store from Casandra Dickinson (she does not have a blog). But she is a master artist at making albums and boxed mini flip albums. The flip album I made this summer was an 81/4 x 81/4, but since my paper pad was a 6x6, I had to make it smaller. And walah, this is what I came up with. This album measures 61/2 x 61/2. There is an inch around the box. This is going to be a little long so I hope you are ready!
Our January Sponsor!
This is the box flip album. I popped the word baby up with pop
dots and cut out a couple of elements from the paper pad and
popped them up. The word hello I cut several of them
out to give them dimension.
This is a picture of how the mini looks like opened up
Another picture of the album opened up. The three page
in the middle are different here.
I have a few tags in a pocket for journaling
or photos. The elephants are a Martha Steart punch.
These tags measure 3x4.
I cut the B-A-B-Y out and adhered them on chipboard, and
popped every other one up. The lambs are jolee's.
I added a couple of frames for pictures.
They measure 3x3.
Added some more tags, these tags are so cute, they
have the months on them, so you can just add the photo.
I added this flap with pages under for pictures or journaling
The flap measures 4x5
Here are the pages. I stamped the pages.
The pages measure 4x3/7/8 and the other two are 1/4 smaller.
Here's another flap with pages.
Here I stamp them again.
Added more tags with the months on them.

Another flap with pages to add photos and journaling.

More tags to added pictures.
Another flap to added photos and journaling. I cut the
"L-O-V-E" out and made a banner.
This is the top flap of the mini. I added a picture frame with a pocket.
The frame is 4x5. The tag can be for a picture and
journaling. It measures 3x4.
This is the bottom flap. Another frame with tag.
This is the back of the book. I ran out of paper, but found this digi paper
that matched perfectly. I used a different pattern on the sides.
