Craft Warehouse - Take Note Mini Book

On National Scrapbook Day, Craft Warehouse had this AMAZING make 'n' take. Can you believe that they let you make this for free?! Although the there was a long line and some wait to create this, it was totally worth it. I helped out with the flower, tabs, and book binding.


The design of the book was a collaboration by two Craft Warehouse employees. Pretty amazing job, huh? They used Echo Park's line, For the Record.


We got to make this cute charm that hooked onto the ribbon of the book. Not only did you get a cute charm but you learn a totally new craft to create as gifts. I was given one to wear as a necklace for the weekend by the Salem staff. (They totally {ROCK}, by the way!)


I decorated my front with some paper from the line and a tiny sticker. I also added a wallet size photo. I only had a few days to finish this album and I wanted to make sure it was super simple for the ladies that came through my line. So, I challenged myself to only use photos from my phone. (I uploaded them to my local printers and did no editing to them outside of my phone). I also kept my pages simple with just straight cuts, stickers, and paper from the line.


I used all my scraps and didn't waste a bit! I also pushed myself to use only one set of alpha stickers through out the book. I hate when I run out of e's... ;)


Note to self... if you want to cut pages of your book, don't tie the knot of the ribbon holding the book together so tight! I was only able to cut the page above. ;) I like to be able to see a few of the other pages peek through.




I wanted to record some of my favorite "truths" right now. A "truth" is a scripture that I keep in a little composition book with me everywhere to help me when I am down. I open the book up and remember all of the promises he has written on my heart, just for me. ;) In this mini are a few of my favorites.

Stay tuned in for the rest of the book soon!

Create Well: Challenge yourself to use a few papers, stickers, and alphas, to create an easy mini book - just for you!
