Mini Memories Kit by Stampin' Up!

Have you noticed the Mini Memories Simply Created Album Kit in the Occasions catalogue (p. 31)?  It's the perfect kit to use with photos and mementoes from a favorite time. Keep it for yourself or give it to someone else as a keepsake. And if you have too many memories and not enough pages to hold them all, you can add more pages—the 1" (1.3 cm) binder rings allow the album to expand so you can add or remove pages.

Coordinating colors: Baked Brown Sugar, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Real Red, Summer Starfruit.

7" x 5" album has chipboard covers with clear, glossy embossing and Gold binder rings with a playful mix of products for creating pages or accents:

■ 6 sheets of double-sided, printed designer paper, 2 ea. of 3 designs
■ 3 sheets of Kraft Cardstock
■ 2 sheets of vellum paper
■ 1 envelope
■ 1 bag
■ 3 sheets of die cuts
■ 5 White paper doilies
■ 48" of Gold Baker’s Twine
■ 20 Gold sequins
■ 5 Summer Starfruit heart clips
■ 5 buttons

As cute as the kit is, I decided to use it to create 12x12 layouts.  All the dsp and embellishments came from  the kit I just added a few sheets of 12x12 and 8-1/2x11 sheets of coordinating cardstock, ink and some stamps from My Paper Pumpkin.
I love the little embellishments in this kit.  The sequins are a little larger than our regular sequins and the gold clips (heart shaped) are so cute!
This is such a simple layout!  I don't generally do a lot of single photo layouts but they are nice for some of your favorite photos!
I love taking a kit and using it for something other than it's intended purpose.  So fun!

Have a creative weekend!
