Top Ten Mini Album

 Here's a cute, little "Top Ten of Summer" mini album for the Papertrey Stamp-a-Faire memory preservation challenge.

On the left will be a photo for each highlight of our summer. Then on the right are hexagons. One hexagon for each number. So the 5th best thing of the summer has 5 hexagons.

Here's an example of what it would look like (using our Christmas card photo as an example). Once summer is over I'll print the photos and fill out the album. I'm excited because it's 90% done and I'll be able to complete it so quickly. And if I want, I can add a short sentence in a thinner pen under the main description.

I didn't have a metal ring on hand so I just used a thick copper wire to make a loop for binding. I may switch it out once I get a ring, but for now it's good : )

I'm entering this in the hooked on hexagons challenge over at Moxie Fab. Such great inspiration in this post ... I pinned several ideas!

Thanks so much for looking!

Supplies used:
stamps:  PTI Lovely Layers, PTI mini hexagons
dies: PTI By the Numbers, PTI block lowercase alphas
ink: PTI Hawaiian Shores, PTI Aqua Mist, Colorbox Tangerine, Colorbox Yellow Ochre
other: copper wire, tags


  1. WOWZERS Kelly this is SO FUN! Love the idea of the numbers...CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!!

  2. My goodness. I have now looked at everything you did for SAF, and am so totally impressed. You did such a fabulous job on all the challenges, and were so incredibly productive. I love everything you did, and have to say that my favorites (aside from that owl we already talked about) were all the cards you made from Lovely Layers. I just pulled that set out, and have only scratched the surface, and you have given me so much inspiration. PS--can you come over to my house next year...I only CASED a very few cards, because I was too busy talking.
