Mahalo Album

Mahalo! Did you know that Mahalo a Hawaiian word meaning thanks, gratitude, admiration, praise, esteem, regards, respects? Turns out it's also the perfect title for an amazing little scrapbook album! This is a darling creation done by our talented Donna-Marie. We sold a few of these kits in the store and if you one of the fortunate ones who picked one up...Here are all of the photos to finish the album! Enjoy!

There are a few special items to note when completing your album:
1) The envelope flap is folded backwards in order to attach the blue chipboard pieces, which exposed a pocket for the tags, as shown on page four.
2) Donna-Marie removed four pages from the original book sample, because she did not need them. However, please keep them in if you'd like to create additional pages...There will be plenty of left over materials in the kit to make more pages Inside front cover and title page.

Title page opened (these darling tabs were created by decorating the envelope flaps...fabulous!)

Customer Spotlight

I've been meaning to share this layout for awhile now...Remember those sketch challenges we've hosted? (yes, I need to get working on the next one!) This is a layout that was created by one of our dear customers, Pam Anthony, and I just had to share! (If you've created something that you love, using products from the store, then let us know...Maybe your page or card will be highlighted next!)

Pam followed our last sketch to create this darling beach-themed page. Love it! Love the orange paper paired with the colors in the designer paper as well as the ribbon choice and highlighting those sweet fish! And how about those tiny star embellishments? They look like little brads, don't they? They're actually cut out from one of the designer papers...very creative and the perfect accent!

Thanks for letting us share Pam! Love the page!
