Simple Stories...A simple challenge

One of my favorite new paper companies is Simple Stories. One of their latest collections really caught my eye and I bought more of the different elements of the line than I usually do :) I think what won me over with Summer Fresh was the mix of denim, burlap, and it still has some very pretty florals! It doesn't get any better!
This paper bag mini album is set up as I have been making them for years, but the size is very different. It is a whopping 8x8 inches! It was a challenge for me filling up each page. My usual page canvas is a mere 5-6 inches, but I really liked being able to decorate the page and still have lots of yummy background paper showing :)
I had so many ideas for a cover on this one...I must have stacked it up and cleared it back off ten times!
I decided to use this floral pattern, I like giving you an idea of the colors included in the album right on the front. Then you get to load up the binder rings with a nice variety pretty ribbons too :)
Now that I got Summer Fresh out of my system for a week or so, I can go back and finish my Fabulous album :)
Thanks for stopping by!
