About the Celebrating Ordinary Moments Blog

Mission Statement
Thank you for checking out my blog. I started this blog to create a place where people are able to find inspiration and share ideas. I find myself surfing the web looking for inspiration that is unique and different. If I find an interesting tutorial I'll share it with you. I will include a "live" link back to the original blog, store or web site so that you may have the option to visit and learn more about the designer and other services, class or kits they may offer. By posting tutorials I am hoping to help inspire people that are interested in creating something fresh and new.

Terms of Use for my Personal Designs or Patterns.
When listing completed projects on eBay, blogs, etsy, facebook, personal websites, forums or online venues, or if using these patterns for a project submitted to magazines or other publications, it is required that credit be given to Corrine Paul in a reasonably visible way.

Scrapping With Lisa on facebook at

My project made especially for this hop

Birthday Bash 6 x 6 paperbag album

I used assorted ribbons and key rings for the binder

I made this album so that the right side is for a photo and the left side is for journaling on all of the two page layouts in this album

I used Fiskars CUPCAKE stencils

I used the Cricut DON JON font

I used assorted patterned paper from various companies

I wanted the album pages SIMPLE so that the focus is on the photos

It would also be FUN to have each person at the party write something in the journaling areas

Back Cover

5 extra photo mats and/or journaling box
Album Designed by Corrine Paul

There is also going to be an overall grand prize, which is being sponsored by Lisa from Scrapping with Lisa and she will be the first and last blog on the hop. In order to be eligible for the grand prize you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop, as well as become a fan of my blog and of Scrapping with Lisa on Facebook. If you don’t do facebook, this won’t count against you for the grand prize, just let me know that in your comment. You must do all this, it is mandatory in order to be eligible for the overall grand prize.
