Birthday Cupcake Mini Album

Mini Albums are one of my favorite projects!  Love the mini scrapbook pages, that can tell the story of an event in a few pages, and makes a wonderful gift for someone!  Better yet, can be less overwhelming than an entire 12x12.

For my mini album, I paired The Rubber Cafe'Hey Cupcake! stamp set with this adorable wood cupcake shaped book!

The first page has a super sweet frosting top that was made using The Rubber Cafe' Puffies Paint, which I dabbed with Scrap Happy Glue using Cut n' Dry foam, and then buffed in Diamond Clear Warm Highlight You're So Fine glitter.  Jellie dots add a little sparkle to the banner.  Here's a bigger pic:

I used the sprinkle stamp from the Hey Cupcake! set with acrylic paint to turn plain chipboard stars into cute embellishments for the are a couple of examples--this first one I also stamped a border strip:

This page has more of the fun Jellie dots too:

I used the sentiment stamps also from the Hey Cupcake! set on these pages:

And the cupcake and sprinkle stamps on this page:

For the back page, I used punch outs, but jazzed them up using Scrap Happy Glue and more of the Warm Highlight You're So Fine glitter and a Jellie dot:

Don't be intimidated by mini albums....they are a whole lotta fun packed into a small space--give one a try!!
