Stamps & Scraps ~ Mini Album Fun!

Hey everyone!  The leaves have turned their bright yellow here on the prairies and most have blown away.  The nights are cold and we've officially had our first frost here.  It's truly Autumn!

So with Autumn upon us, I decided to make an Autumn inspired mini album to share with you today and incorporate some stamping into it!  I mean... it wouldn't be an Ally creation if it didn't involve stamping!!!  Right?!?

So I started off decorating my mini album cover using the gorgeous stamps from the "Sunflowers" collection.  I coloured them using Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out and adhered to the cover.


Here's a close up of my flowers.  I used an ornate die from Spellbinders to use as a back drop for my focal flowers.  It's die cut from Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.


Inside of my front cover, I die cut a circle and stamped my cute little rooster weather vein from the "Country Road" stamp collection.  Below that I added a Copic coloured swag of flowers from the "Autumn Blossoms" stamp set.


I created numerous pockets and pull outs in my album, including this simple tag where I stamped the sunflower images (one coloured at the bottom of the pocket too) using the "Sunflowers" stamp collection.


Here's another tag I created using the gorgeous floral swags form the "Autumn Blossoms" stamp set.


This is one of my favourite places in my mini!  I stamped the large sunflower image onto Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock using Memento's "Tuxedo Black" ink and then...


I fussy cut only the part of the tag showing out of the pocket!  I coloured the remaining hidden tag using Copic Markers...


I added some cute image to the flaps of my removable tags too, like this farm image stamped in Memento "Desert Sand" ink from the "Country Road" stamp collection.


Another image from the "Country Road" stamp collection stamped onto patterned paper...


I even stamped image at the bottom of some of my larger tag pull outs...

And for my final page and pull tag, I used the "Autumn Blossoms" and "Sunflowers" stamp sets to stamp an image at the bottoms.


I hope you have enjoyed my little Autumn inspired mini album project today.  So the next time you create a fun altered art project, don't forget to include your stamps!  It's fun!
