6x8 "Sweet Escape" Mini-Album

Good morning!

Here's a tropical spin on my 6x8 "Sweet Memories" PDF tutorial. I used the tutorial for all of the page designs in this one, but changed the album closure to a D-ring buckle type closure. I used the Fancy Pants "Summer Soul" collection and added to it with some papers from my stash, mostly Crate Paper and a few sheets of K&Co "Edamame".

I've got a thing for stamps and dies with a tropical theme, so I have quite a few that I've used to embellish this album including WaltzingMouse's "My Island" and "North Shore", GinaKDesigns "Aloha" and "Tropical Nature", and a few of the Fancy Pants single stamps from the "Wave Searcher" collection. I've used some older Quickutz 2x2 dies, some from the "Relax" gift set, the large wave die and a palm tree frame, and a few from the "Tiki"set. I've also used a few Memory Box dies (honu and banana leaf), Spellbinders (various label dies and large surfboards), and a few Taylored Expressions dies (tropical border scene and sunburst).

It was really fun making this into a little paradise album!

This album is listed on eBay HERE ending next Sunday night 8/18/13, if you're interested.

I'm starting the tutorial on the 8x8 Graphic45 Birdsong album that I made late last year. I have to remake this album, although this one I'm keeping for our pics of my husband's tour in Korea and the brief trip I made visiting him in 2006. They've been hanging out long enough on my computer and need a good home:)

It's going to take me several weeks to finish this one as it's 22 pages long, but I should have it ready by the end of this month or early September. Thanks to everyone who has requested this album for your interest and your patience. I hope you'll find it worth the wait:)
