Life's Little Moments Mini Album

HELLO...It's Eryn posting today!
STILL flying high here with {ippity} excitement!!  I am the newest edition to the {ippity} design team and am HONORED for the opportunity!  Also, I have to say once again how lucky I am to be working side by side with Eva & Kelly...they are both such AMAZING women!

I was able to spend some time with my {ippity} stamps this weekend and created a  Family mini album...I am so happy I get to share it with you today!  The entire book includes stamps from the {ippity} kit called Life's Little Moments.  The paper I used is from the {ippity} paper package currently available {there is an image below}.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye, and is ADORABLE!  AND the best part is I still have plenty left over for more projects. How GREAT is that!?!?

I created my mini album pages by using a Kaiser beyond the page album.  I got my album ready by painting brown acrylic paint on each of the pages...just around the edges where I knew the paper would not extend.  I think it gives it a more "finished" look. 

You'll noticed that each page includes at least one of the {ippity} stamps.  One of the things that I love about this kit is that these stamps are PERFECT for stamping LARGE scrapbook pages OR a mini pages such as this.  :) 

I also incorporated chipboard into this helps give each page some dimension. To be completely honest I haven't used chipboard much in the past...BUT I discovered how to use it...easily!  I used spray adhesive and sprayed it directly on to the top of the chipboard piece, then added the paper and cut it out with an exacto knife.  The BEST PART or should I say the TIP that I discovered while surfing through some of my favorite blogs is to use SANDPAPER to finish off the took care of those "edgy" jagged corners that you get right after you are done with the initial cutting. 

This calendar stamp image is so VERSATILE...well actually, both of these are! 
But I really LOVE how easily you can date something with this square stamp.  It is kinda small here {click on the image to see the details} but it lists every month of the year and then each date.  You simply just circle the month & date...PERFECT!

I also pulled out my scallop and apron lace Fiskars punches...they are another easy way to add an additional element to your creations! 

This page I actually just inked up the H and happy on the Happy Birthday stamp...which makes this stamp very versatile!  More chipboard...some jute and brads and it completes the page!

My scalloped circle punch also came in handy...and fits perfect with the You & I stamp image!

Capture the Moments that take your Breath away...LOVE that quote!
This was a VERY special day for my family and fits perfectly with my Family Album!

Here is the LOVELY paper {ippity} is currently offering.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Having a variety of papers that all match like this really makes finishing a project like this mini album EASY peasy!  In my is definitly the way to go!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by...I hope you are having a LOVELY day!
