Cantina Happy Hour Mini

by Karen Wyngaard

Cantina Lite shipped Wednesday, so I couldn't wait to grab mine and start playing.

As soon as I saw the "Happy Hour" Aqua Cutapart, I knew I wanted to create a cute little mini to store photos from favorite "happy hours" spent with family and friends. I have a nice stash of plain white literature folders. At 5x5 inches, they are perfect for making quick mini albums.


First, I decorated the front cover with the Yellow Print and Flattened Bottle Caps from the Cantina Lite kit. I used a 1-inch circle punch to make the centers of the bottle caps; each word was selectively inked and stamped from a UM sentiment.

Aren't those Paper Umbrellas fun?!?


To add more real estate for photos, I trimmed Yellow Print, Orange Plain and Dark Teal Plain papers to 5x10", folded them in half, and stitched them into the spine of the CD mailer using a simple pamphlet stitch and waxed linen thread.


The back cover is decorated with a Dark Teal Plain panel, bottle cap and an Aqua Cutapart sentiment.

I hope you're as inspired by Cantina Lite as I am. Not a Lite member? It's never too late to get started.
