everday we think of you

we think of you.

{Yes, we do Zach. ET phone home.}

The Everyday Square Stickers collection of epoxy flair stickers from Avital at Creativity Prompt jumpstarted this mini book. Using the stickers as a starting point for my cover title, I added the cutest little chevron stamp {My Mind's Eye ST-1073} that coordinates so well and draws your eye toward the sticker. I originally just had the left arrow stamped and when I saw that I had a bit of room left, stamped to the right as well. 

I made my accordion album using Paula's tutorial when I shared this mini book at write.click.scrapbook. last week. Mine is sized to 5.50" x 5.50"using an 11" x 17" piece of cardstock.


Using a variety of stamp sentiments I have in my stash, I stamped them and integrated them into my journaling on my album dedication page, drawing my ink colors from the Lime Twist collection from MME. I find it to be a perfect complement to the Avital's epoxy stickers.

Again, a starting point for my journaling.

One of my favorite photos from this Summer, you might remember it from this layout, and I hope Zach likes it, too. He loved swimming at Nana's and Papa's and his Sisters have inherited his love of the water!


Stamping on the patterned paper, I trimmed an arrow shape and fussy cut around the Thinking of You sentiment...you know how much I love a bracket shape!

Because I tend to forget dates, I think I'll be using this stamp quite a bit.


Here's where you can find the Everyday Stickers set so that you can make someone special in your life a mini album, too. I have two stickers remaining in my set and I think I'll use those on some layouts for the girls while they're out on my messy desk right now.


  1. Again I really like how light and airy this mini us. The blues and tangerines compliment so well. The stampsband journaling is always a great combination. You may have inspired for me to try this now.
    Very lovely, Monika.

  2. Gorgeous and heartfelt, your magical artistic signature! Love it!

  3. Awesome mini Monika!! The date stamp is cute too and will never expire.

    1. It's from the My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Bluebell "Remember" set. Item #ST1073. The Chevron and Thinking of You stamps are from the same set, too. It's a keeper!
