Graphic 45 Secret Garden Mini

Howdy y'all. 
     Today, I am sharing a mini album that I made for my good friend Barb, she is also my Stampin' UP! demonstrator.  It's really interesting how things work out.  I went to a SU party at Barb's house in 2008, at the time she was not a demonstrator.  Barb and Jennifer (Barb's upline and my former upline) convinced me to join and be a demonstrator.  In 2009 I became demonstrator but decided to quit in 2010 or beginning of 2011. I was Barb's demonstrator.   I recruited Barb and she became a demonstrator.  Now Barb is my SU demonstrator.  Life is just funny that way...   But nevertheless she is an awesome demonstrator, very talented.  She is one of the nicest, kindest, and most caring individuals I've met in years.  I've been telling her for a while I was going to make her something.  She loves gardening whether it be flowers or working in her vegetable garden.  Barb has an amazing green thumb.  For me it was a no-brainer that the G45 Secret Garden paper line would be perfect for her mini.   I was also inspired by Cathy Chapdelaine from her SoMuchScrap You Tube channel.  Cathy has some very pretty mini albums, many of which you can purchase the tutorial for in her Etsy shop or you can bid on the finished mini albums on Ebay.   Because of her beautiful work I was inspired to sew on my mini album I made for Barb. I kept it pretty simple since this was my first attempt.  The mini album turned out wonderful!  I was very please with the finished product.  Now, I think I will sew on all my minis!   I started a birthday card for my nephew and yep! I stitched on it too.    Well, I hope you enjoy the photos and give sewing a try.   Tip: a smaller sharper needle works wonders  75/11 best.
