    Hi, Ali! Another fabulous mini-book! I just love how you mix and match the different page sizes and how your layouts/projects always emphasize what’s important – the photos and the story – without compromising the design. You’re amazing. =)

    Jess S said…

    Wonderful. Is the chipboard included in the kit? Do you have to cut out the window?
    Thanks, Jess

    remind me that you are a professional and that i am a lowly gramma who likes the art part of scrapping….I have no original ideas and can’t even copy that well! But I love to see what you do and strive for more from myself. I have lots of supplies but I don’t organize them well or remember what I do have. My work space needs help so I can work more efficiently. Thanks for inspiration, Gayle

    This is such a beautiful album, I can’t wait for my CD kit to arrive!! I love the idea of not having to journal everything, sometimes I have far more pictures than I have things to say about them!
    Thanks, Ali, for the inspiration :)

    Linn said…

    Thanks for sharing the amazing book…I just love how you cut windows through the chipboard pages to reveal a bit of the page in front of or behind it. I will definitely be trying that very soon.

  • 47.

    Your post makes me FINALLY realize that I don’t need to put my scrapbooks in chronological order anymore. THINGS WE LOVED is certainly better than “On Wednesday, we did…”
    Thanks Ali!

    Ali~ I was just wondering if you have a contact # for Cocoa Daisy? I ordered your kit and it is yet to arrive- I know that there was a hold up on the stamps but now I can’t even access their web site for the last 2 days and haven’t rec’d a reply back via email. I am excited for the kit to make our annual family vacation album/journal. Thank you for your inspiration… I may not be getting large 12×12 layouts done, but I am officially the Mini book girl :)
    Thanks again~ Kim
