The Little Things of 2013 {ScorPal & May Arts}

Hi everyone!!

Welcome to my stop on the May Arts and ScorPal blog hop! 


You should be here from one Steph Ackerman.

Today I have to share with you a mini album that I recently started commemorating the small things that have happened (and some that will happen) in 2013! 


The album has been put together with a scoring technique I recently picked up from the Fold It In Workshop by Kristin Tweedale. My Scor-Pal was a GEM and is literally the backbone of this mini album. The album is based from the Indie Chic collection by MME. It also includes Thickers, EP alphas, Charcoal Glimmer Mist from TA, a dymo label maker, Star Confetti from UmWowStudio and Gauche Alchemy ouchless cardboard in white. The cover has been  finished with a Turquoise Chevron ribbon, a White Leaves ribbon, and some natural twine from May Arts.

I have two inside pages to share today, as I'm filling about half of it and holding onto the other half for the rest of 2013 :). 


This page is of my kiddo and his daddy, Gabe is walking on William's feet at the mall! The page is the ouchless cardboard by GA mentioned earlier (punched out of a sizzix die), the washi tape is also GA. The brad and paper for the rosette are MME. The rosette has been scored on my Scor-Pal. The ribbon behind the rosette is the same chevron used before by May Arts, but in a super fab bright yellow color. I also used more confetti stars from UmWowStudio. 


This one is of Gabe sleeping with his eyes open... I took this picture with FLASH and he still didn't wake up, lol. It has been doodled on and also has confetti stars and a label maker title. The stamps are from Viva Las VegaStamps! (line of chevrons).

I'm having so much fun on this baby and can't wait to show the full reveal! Stay tuned throughout the year to see more and more pages completed. 

Don't forget to comment for the giveaway!

Now head on over to the blog of Toni Storie to see what's next on the hop!!

  12. Having an album ready to slip any pictures or other mementos in at a moments notice makes a lot of sense. Rather than trying to find time to organize a lot of pictures and other items (and hoping that you remember when/where/what they are) you can slip them in your waiting album and you're ready to go. Thanks for sharing this great idea.

  30. This is such a fun mini. I really like your colors. I especially like the "little things" theme. My motto is "take some time to enjoy the little things". I don't think we do that enough. Super job!
