The Start

I didn't video my first two minis but I did photograph them. Thought I'd share them here and try my best to give credit to all the people I got ideas from. I made this for my friend Jennifer. She went to Utah to attend a big scrapping convention there so I made this for her to fill with memories from her trip.

I used My Mind's Eye Laundry Line paper for this mini. The acetate butterfly was stamped, alcohol inked, and UTEE'd. I melted a big pile of UTEE and stamped Utah into it. I learned how to make the flowers from They're primarily a card making site but they have some really neat technique tutorials that go great with minis.

The letters on this page and the one below were designed by Teresa Manchas at They're time consuming but they look great.

I think I got the idea for this tulle lollipop flower from Hope Simpson who's MsScrappaperscissors on Youtube.

The pinky flower is made of acetate. I alcohol inked it and UTEE'd it too. The picture frame is made by wrapping ribbon around a piece of chipboard I cut out with my Cricut.

The heart is made of two pieces of DP woven together.

This lollipop flower was designed by weeziechk at She's AWESOME!

These are some of the famous "Velma Technique" flowers. She's at The envelope idea comes from a tutorial that can be found on the website.

More Velma flowers and the stamped acetate idea came from Arlene who's mybutterflykisses12 on Youtube.

Another Velma flower.

This organza flower idea also comes from and the tag idea is from weeziechk.

The flowers may have come from a Splitcoast Stampers tutorial. I'm not sure. The pocket is a Marion pocket ( Some more Stampartic flowers.

This butterfly is a design of Rosanne's at roxycar11 on Youtube.
Like I said, this was my first and I tried to put everything but the kitchen sink in it. LOL

Hope you liked it.
