Kindergarten Mini Album & a Giveaway


This is my second post today. To see my Craft Junkie Too Design Team Project, click here.

I am so excited! I just finished making my kindergarten mini album. This is a Christmas present for my niece, who is loving her first year of school! I originally started this project for the Your Story Blog Hop that I was part of a few weeks ago, but I soon discovered that this would be way too thick for that. So, I ordered myself a Cinch. I love it! It is so easy, and works great!

Here are all of the pictures of the inside. I used so many different Cricut cartridges and papers that I gave up trying to keep track of them all. Let me know if you're wondering where I got anything.












I also want to thank all of you for visiting my little blog and leaving your kind comments. To celebrate the holidays and the beginning of winter, I have a giveaway for you: My Pink Stamper's Winter Punnies Stamp Set! You will love using these awesome stamps for all of your winter projects. To enter, just leave a comment and make sure you're a follower by Christmas, and I'll use random.org to pick a winner on the 26th. Enjoy the holidays!

Very cute! I think I need to make one for my kdg. too. I just bought a Bind-it-all and this looks like a great first project. Would love to win some stamps. So far I just get to admire all MPS stuff. Maybe Santa will leave some in my stocking. :)
