CCC Mini Album Challenge & GIVEAWAY!!


I joined the Craft Craving Chicas Mini Album Challenge! and when they say 'challenge.. they mean CHALLENGE!! TA-HEEE...

See the picture below for a picture of MINI ALBUM KIT CHALLENGE CONTENTS ~ wow! Holy smokes.... when I received the kit I kept looking inside the envelope for more!

So basically, you receive a kit, use the contents to make a mini:
- Cereal box chipboard (4), acetate (1), fibers/ribbons (few), minimal embellies, SUPER CUTE papers.. but not much! :) If you ever get the chance to do a challenge ... try it! Challenges really make you try new things :)So, THANK YOU Lisa and Regina!! I had the best time making this mini... way challenging too!
- I used only the kit contents and used 98% of the kit contents!

BEFORE:
Hope you enjoy! Don't throw out those cereal boxes!! TRY MAKING A MINI ALBUM OUTTA THEM!! :)

************ GIVEAWAY**********
Leave a Comment to win this little fun mini + a challenge mini kit!!
I will be making a mini kit and sending it off with the person who wins this giveaway! The winner can pass on the challenge by sending off their own kit challenge! SUPER FUN! :)
**** the winner will be drawn next Saturday, Oct. 10!***

HERE'S SOME PHOTO'S OF MY MINI I MADE USING THE CHALLENGE KIT:

  47. What a great mini for the CCC challenge! It's so cute! And here is my comment for your "challenge" for the awesome kit blog candy: It's such a challenge for me when I need to figure out a way to cover up a mistake, or, when I want to remove the paper I just put down on the page, using real tacky tape, cause you can't get if off without ripping everything to pieces! Like right now, I glued down a piece of swirl chipboard ~ and I decided I needed to add ribbon/fibers underneath it! I used the tacky tape again, so..................all that is a challenge for me when creating my minis. Hugs to you, Velma ah~I hope you see this, I want that blog candy !!!!!!!!!!!! but will be so happy who ever receives it, cause it's beautiful what you put together!!! Every mini you do is beautiful!

  51. Hi Steff. I find my challenge is making the picture the vocal point. lol I do alot of vocal on the paper and embellishment. The pictures seem to always end up in pockets lol. Working on getting better on that. Looking forward to seeing your next video.

  53. WOW...You did such a BEAUTIFUL job!! I really love it! It really shows that this hobby can be done on any kind of budget, doesn't it? I've recently finished my very first mini and quickly started my second. I'm totally addicted now and I must confess that my biggest challenge is finding time to clean my house!! LOL...Nancy :o)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi again :) Wow Great Mini ,so cute!!You did a beautiful job on it!! Not sure if im posting in the right place for your challenge giveaway kit or not? lol. Your question was ...what is most challenging for me? Well I'm a noobie to the scrapping world ( 2 or 3 weeks now ) so the thing that is most challenging for me is learning how to use all the tools & techniques.
    You all make some great minis and cards. I'm working on my very first card tonight ( which I'll share on youtube ) I haven't been able to find any chipboard minis here where I live, so winning this would be so nice AND challenging since I'm so new lol. Thanks :)

  56. Very cute mini album, I'd love to win, as I'm volunteering at a hospital making mini albums with patients.

    My biggest challenge...like you, covering up cute papers, and also, using up my supplies - I tend to use my most recent supplies, and the 'good stuff' I was 'saving' for something special never gets used.

    ReplyDelete
  57. i sooo enjoy watching your videos on youtube!! and i feel exactly the same about covering up the super-cute papers!! i sometimes even hate to layer them, which can be problematic and makes the designing harder, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love watching mini album vidoes trying to get started on making them never done one before don't know how to get started on one.
    The hardest thing is not wanting to cover up pretty pattern paper i hate doing that

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is just about as cute as can be! :) I love it... This blog is one of my absolute FAVORITES!! Love your work! Thanks for the chance to win!
