A Non Scrapbook Mini Scrapbook!

Now what is that supposed to mean?!
Let's ask Lori from A Scrapmom's Musings if she can shed a little light...


This is a mini album created for a challenge on Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends (ning)in which the entire album had to be created from 'non-scrapbook related items'. In other words, nothing on it could be from a scrapping company. Everything had to be found objects, packaging, that sort of thing.

Lori's mini album was created from a photo album purchased at the dollar store with the photo pages removed. The papers are envies, cards, packaging, artwork, etc. Embellishment are all found items from the junk drawer, kids rooms, basement, garage, any where that you wouldn't expect to find items to use in a scrapbooking project.

Says Lori..
I have to admit, it was difficult at first, but once I got going, it was easy. The covering of the album is made out of worn out jeans. I acually used the pocket of the jeans to insert a clothing tag with the title "Zac" (recycled felt letters). The Wrangler tag is from a new pair of jeans--the '10' represents his age and "regular" represents that he's a typical boy! The pages in the book are created from chipboard (think cereal boxes and such) and covered with either envelopes, artwork or packaging and are kept together using old shoelaces.

This was a fun mini album and I suggest that everyone who loves mini's create one---see what you can find and create an album!

Thanks, Peata, for featuring my mini album! I am thrilled! Creating this album forced me to "think outside the box" and is a wonderful exercise in starting those creative juices. Again, thanks, for giving me the opportunity to share this album.
