Keepin' Cozy Layered Mini album for Samantha Walker

Layered Mini Album with Keepin' Cozy by Cathy

Hi!  I have a mini album to share with you, featuring several Samantha Walker cutting files and the paper collection she designed for
Echo Park...Keepin' Cozy! My very first post for her Creative team, so thrilled to be a part of this team and this journery!
   
A couple of months back, I saw an amazing mini album on the Silhouette Blog.  I loved it and bought the bundle to create my own. Then, when we were assigned our dates to post for Samantha Walker's Creative team...I wondered if I could create one similar with her files.  So that is exactly what I did!




I love how it turned out!

Here is the list of files I used to create the mini and towards the end I will list the files for cover.

I cut all the pieces in the order listed above.  I had to ungroup the hexagon snowflake card, so that I had just the card base.  The only file I reduced was doily lace, which I reduced to 6 inches in diameter. 
Here is a screen shot of the layers.

After everything was cut, I inked all the edges except the white card stock.  I layered the pieces all back together and added a glassine bag for one more layer.  I added a piece of scrap paper, sequins and stickers to create a fun little pocket on one side and then a tag to other.  I stitched through the entire stack of layers...no problem for mysewing machine whatsoever.

For the cover, I used the snowflake that I ungrouped from the hexagon snowflake card, and circle tear drop scallop #4238 reduced to 6.25 inches.  I added a 5 inch circle of vellum for one more layer. Then finished up the mini with stickers from Keepin' Cozy, a little Twinery Twine, then added some miscellaneous buttons &sequins.

I can't wait to send this to my BFF back home, so she can add all of her fun Instagram photos of her kiddos sledding and playing in the snow.  There are so many 
Samantha Walker cut files that you could use to create a mini...the possibilities are endless!
