Key Chain Mini Album

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
This week, over at Shopping Our Stash, we would like for you to use product packaging to create your project!  This is my third Key Chain Mini Album.  They make such wonderful gifts and at this time of the year it would be an amazing stocking stuffer.
 The closer here was a collar on a basketball trophy!  Magnets keep it closed.
 My husband dismantled some old trophies the kids earned back in High School.  He was about to toss them and then decided to ask me if I wanted to add them to my hoard! (LOL)  I said no, then immediately changed my mind and grabbed them from his hand.  I wanted something unique to create visual interest on the front of this design.  It works!

The internal tags were created using various Graphic 45 papers.

This second project is strictly utilitarian.  I needed storage for my TH Distress Inks collection.  I am working on a Laura Denison (Follow the Paper Trail ) project that will hold some of my ink pads,  but until I complete it, I need something on my desk to hold the pads I'm using when working on a design.

DH laughed at my lack of neatness here.  I tried to center them all but I just couldn't and it doesn't matter, because they are coming off.  I only had a black on clear cartridge, so I could not remove the white backing.  I have ordered black on white background and the paper will be 1/4 inches instead of 1/2 inch and that will make everything easier to center.  Right now, It works. and looks nice on my drafting table!
