Interview with a Cropmom and free giveaway

Today we are chatting with who is the owner of Cropmom Kathryn Balint. I recently had the opportunity to try their online service to see if I could somehow create a mini scrapbook using their tools and I am happy to say I was very pleased with the results.

To find out more about Cropmom, and how you can win Cropmom Freebies Read the full Interview here.


My Cropmom Mini

So I made my own mini album with cropmom by creating my layouts and sticking some 5x7 printouts to recycled matt board. You can check out my cropmom mini and tutorial here

Thrifty Mini Album Tip
Stock up on free mini album pages and covers by heading over to your local picture framing store and ask them if they have any matt board off cuts that they are going to throwing out. Matt board is perfect for mini albums. It is acid and lignin free, nice and thick and comes in heaps of different colors.  If they won't give them to you for free then maybe they will sell them to you at a nominal price.  My last visit to the framers scored me 40 free pieces of 10"x8" red, black and white board. I am set for life...
