This cute little set is perfect for adding little titles or icons to your scrapbooking, journalling, bullet journals, or cards. I used it for a mini scrapbook kit called Story by Stacy™ Story Starter Workshop Kit—Stripes

I got one of these at our Convention and while there decided to do an album for my sister who's moved to the UK recently. I purchased a second one to have a copy for myself at home, for the kids to look at and for my to show off to everyone how cute these little albums are. I don't want to share the whole album online because it is private for my sisters birthday but I wanted to show a few pages I did using these cute little icons from this months stamp of the month.  

There are some great instructions inside the Story Starter kit to make this album and I worked on it from the story before the photos. 
The Album is called "What we know and love about DAENA" for her Birthday in June (it may be arriving a few days late as it hasn't arrived yet and her birthday was the 25th June - it will be worth the wait I promise DM). 

I knew Daena loves music and how fortuitous this set has MUSIC NOTES (This is so handy for me because both my children are learning instruments, so this tiny stamp will get a workout), it will make a cute bullet point for journalling on the big scrapbook pages and it makes a cute addition to the smaller pages or cards (especially cards to thank the music teachers at the end of the year!). 

Watch the short video below for how Story by Stacy little 4x4 sized albums and story starter kit work. 


Once I had determined I wanted to write about Music I used the back of the white card to stamp Heather Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad all down the side of the card (x2), the other side has lines. You can see that I ran off the bottom with a bit of scrap so I could get a single note down there and have the corner all stamped up.

Due to the fact that this little album is travelling from Australia to the UK I wanted to make it as light as possible, so I stamped and wrote on both sides of the cards. I have HEAPS of cards left over because the kit is designed to have one bit of card for each side and gives you a whole set as a practice set (I only practiced a few pages so have LOTS of cards left so I can use them in other ways! yay!!). I was happy with how it turned out and I don't think you can see thru it (unless you hold it up to the light). It ended up weighing less than 100 grams, so worth all the weight reductions.

The end result above, after writing on it was the above (you can't see anything from the page before). 

The next icon I knew I had to use was the little plane - as you can see from the below pic I ended up doing a couple of placements for the plane. I ended up liking the bottom one better so I sent that one in my sisters album. She loves to Travel so this plane is the perfect for the travel page of her album. 

I had plenty of cards to re-stamp them but I decided it didn't matter if our two albums were slightly different, because they are each UNIQUE.

I had so much fun making this little album and finding photos to fit them. Some of the pages I did a collage prints and got 4 photos in the space.  I would recommend everyone do one of these tiny albums of things you know and love about your family or friends. I'm sure it will become a treasured keepsake. Plus the Highlight Reel is the perfect stamp set to accompany it.
