My example: Featuring Heidi Swapp butterflies but the Maya Road keychain ones would work great too. I also included an Elle's Studio journaling tag. They are great for that finishing touch.

Our other Guest Designer for September. I really couldn't chose just one person this month so I went with two! I've been coveting Alyssa's paper cutting techniques for a while now.

Cover: For my cover I choose to use a 6x6 chipboard album by Maya Road. Check out all the fun albums Erica has in stock over at the store. I left the cover plain like Elle did but added some paint streaks, a summer tag by My Minds Eye, a Prima flower and some bling.
Page 1 (The start of Summer): For me that would be camping on Memorial Day weekend. I choose 2 photos just like she did and used a County Fair journaling tag to tuck behind my photos. For my tag pull I added an old calendar tag and covered up the year so I could use up some of my Stash. On the side I added some embellishments and a date/place tag instead of a flag.
Page 2 & 3 (An event you attend): I choose to do my page about our trip to the Alamo. I used a kraft Note tag and used the ribbon and Vintage tag cutouts to hold my brochure and extra photos. I used staples to attach it using the new Tim Holtz Tiny attacher.
Page 3 &4: (Use a large photo for your page)
I choose to do my 2 page spread about our family vacation. I enlarged one photo to fill the right side and added my title. For the left side I used Vintage cutouts and County Fair tags.
Page 5: (Flowers)
I too added a page to my summer mini about how beautiful the flowers were this year. I used a Vintage cutout and some Making Memories Mini Alphas.
Page 6: (A funny Story)
I too wanted to add a funny story to my book. I used the Bird Note tags and a date tag to make a mini page to hold my story.
Page 7: (Treats or Favorite Restaurants)
I loved these little icecream cutouts so I too wanted to include them on my page. I found a picture of my daughter and I enjoying our favorite summer treat and added a Vintage cutout tag to include my journaling.
Page 8&9: (Another Trip)
I wanted to add a few more pages to my mini so I did one about our trip to the beach. The flashcards were perfect for this. There were so many to choose from including sand, sunshine, ocean, and more!
Page 10: (Something Special)
For the last page I wanted to include something very special that happened to our family this year so I included an ultrasound picture of our daughter to be this September. Thought it was a perfect way to end the book and the summer!
Thanks Elle for the great Summer Mini class! I hope you too had a chance to follow along and if not still make sure to check out the class on the blog and all of her cool new tags in the store.
