My Little Shoebox and Punky Sprouts

My Little Shoebox teamed up with Punky Sprouts this month!

I'll be the first to admit that I tend to avoid using mini-albums.  I think it might have something to do with my perfectionistic need for my albums to all be the same size, shape, style, etc.  But, I really wanted to have a try at the super cool Punky Sprouts products that I received, and boy am I glad I did!

I got to work with the Punky Sprouts "Trunk Punky" album, some of their trim, and some of their roll-up flowers.  Instead of creating a true mini-album, though, I went a different direction and used those products along with the gorgeous MLS Enchanted Garden collection to make myself a much-needed notebook!

Oh how I LOVE those roll-up flowers!!

I'm always searching for paper to jot down phone numbers, reminders about work, DT assignments, and so on.  Well now I have a 75-page custom notebook in my favorite color combination sitting on my desk :)  Because I wanted my notebook to be pretty and practical, instead of just pretty, I kept the inside simple and designated the dimensional elements to the front cover.  I used my binding machine to assemble the finished notebook.

I hope I've encouraged you to think outside the box... mini-albums are not just for photos!  Thank you, Punky Sprouts, for the opportunity to work with your fun products :)
