TJ Album Mania blog hop

Welcome to the promotion of the latest
This one is all about mini books
and is called ALBUM MANIA.

You will find 35 pdf printable
step-by-step instructions for all kinds
of mini albums and I am going to share
with you a Paper Lantern
album with you.

All information about this 
(click on the link).

This blog hop starts at:
or you may have arrived here from  
Holly's Blog.
 I think this is the cutest way of scrappin
an album. For this project I used pictures of my
pregnant daughter. You can have many pictures
on this album inside and out.
 The outside of the lantern leaves you room for 
4 pictures or text. You can even ad more on the top
and bottom if you want.
 Inside the lantern there is room for
9 pictures on one side and 9 on the other.
As my DD's pregnancy is still in progress
I only have pictures on one side,
but i will fill the other side in the next two months.
 You may have seen some cute subway art
on the outside and I found this on the web
and share it with you too. Just click with
your right mouse button on the image
and you can safe this to your computer.
As to more amazing projects, please follow
the hop to my amazing friend:
who has a wonderful album
to share with you to  wet
your appetite for the new
Album Mania CD.

don't forget to leave a nomment on each blog for
a winner will be randomly chosen from commenting hoppers 
and will be posted on Pat’s blog next week    
The winner will receive their own copy of the MAM CD.  


Have a creative day!

Such a cute way to showcase your daughter's pregnancy. And I am soooooo jealous, as I will never be a grandma. Loved the album.

This is so cool, I can remember in the 70's when you could go out and buy photo boxes like this anyplace...not so much anymore - it is so cool that we can make stuff like this now - it means so much more to the one receiving it! This is so awesome!
