Treasure Mini Book

Hi dear crafty friends! Us crafters are a strange bunch… we can’t throw anything right? We see a creative potential in almost any paper piece or little trinket. Slowly we accumulate lots of these little leftovers and embellishments and they sit patiently somewhere and wait for us to do something with them. Today I want to share my Treasure Mini Book that was created with some of my little treasures!     Treasure Mini Book For this project O took out one of my treasure boxes that is filled with little metal junk and leftover pieces I collected over time. I also took some non metal little pieces that were hiding in another box. I took pieces of fabric and cut them in half. Then bound with paper strips folded in half. Each side of the strip was glued to a different fabric.         The fun part was creating the pages. I wanted each page to have a …

Mini Album Tips: Using Scraps!

Hi dear crafty friends! Every month I post about a scrapbooking tip to make your layouts look better. This series is such a success I decided to also share my tips about mini albums. Especially with all the questions I’m getting about the mini albums I create! So I’m proud to present Mini Album Tips: Using Scraps!       Mini Album Tips: Using Scraps! Since mini albums are small in size they are the best opportunity to use your scraps! Every once in a while I like to collect a few scraps of papers and use them as pages in a mini album. The secret is to decide what is the size of the largest page, for example 6″ x 6″ and have all the scraps in that size and smaller.         Once you pick all the pieces bind them together with rings or a binding machine and start adding embellishments, photos and journaling! You can find …

Secret Garden Album in a Box

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Secret Garden Album in a Box made for the Graphic 45 design team. You know I love boxes. They seem to capture my imagination and I always try to come up with new ways of incorporating them in my projects. So I took a box and made it into a mini album…     Secret Garden Album in a Box At first glance it might seem like a regular box that I covered with papers and embellished. But this box is actually a mini album…        To create this mini album box I used the Graphic 45 kraft ATC box. I love its size and that it’s deep and can fit a lot inside. I cut the side of the box and attached a binding mechanism. This way the box is both a box and the cover for the mini album. Then I added the pages of …
