What a fun challenge, I love creating things like this although don't do it often enough. I created a CD Envelope Book using Lisa Johnson's Circus Spectacular Die-namics and Stamp set ... and many more besides .

For full details of all the stamp sets and Die-namics I used on this and more pics of the inside, visit my blog post which you can find here.

I have been playing with my camera a lot this summer, so it was fun to combine my new pictures with some new papers and lots of Die-namics and stamps!

You can see all the pages and get the details on my blog!

I made a little accordion envelope book to tuck away some small photos that needed a pretty home. I decorated six envelopes and bound them together.

I also stumbled on these darling little composition books. These will make fun little gifts for my friends, especially my teacher friends who make lists.

I made a mini flip book with lots of MFT stamps and Die-namics! I'm so happy that I finally scrapbooked the Disney vacation that we took 3 years ago to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday!

All the details and pictures can be found on my blog!

For my mini book I created a Star Book. I haven't made one of these for a long time! They are quite easy to make, just a little time consuming.

You can find lots of detailed photos on my blog.

I did a mini chipboard album for this month's challenge, and I am in LOVE with it! I don't normally do this sort of thing, but the impact the finished result has is amazing!!

Morning everyone! I loved hopping around to see what all the girls on the team came up with today. So beautiful!

So, who's inspired to put your stamps and Die-namics to work in a mini book? I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
