Matchbook mini album

One of the many perks of becoming a Stampin' Up! demo is the monthly magazine packed full of useful tips and projects to use at your workshops.  In the latest issue it featured a "Matchbox" Mini Album which I replicated this afternoon.  Earlier this year I joined a swap of 'handmade items' so this little book is heading off to the UK in a couple of days, hope Sylvia likes it!  I know she has a few grandkids so she may like to pop a few photos of them in it and use it as her brag-book!

I'm really pleased I purchased this set as a clear set and it was very easy to line up the stamps on the pages.

Finished measurement is approx 4x4" to give you an idea of size, and I used every single stamp in the Vintage Vogue set to decorate it inside and out.

What I used:

Card:  Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla

Ink:  Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake

Stamp Sets:  Vintage Vogue

Tools and other fun stuff:  Piercing tool and mat pack, bakers' twine, Square Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' sponges.


  1. Frances that is gorgeous. Lucky lucky Sylvia.
