Travel Memories Envelope Mini Album

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Travel Memories Envelope Mini Album. I just realized I never shared it with you even though I made it almost two years ago. It was safely stored in my Etsy box where I keep all my items for sale. I went through it and found it there… waiting to be shared with the world.     Travel Memories Envelope Mini Album Paper bag mini albums were a big hit a while back and I still think they are really fun to make. The main reason is because the paper bag is doing half the work! You have a page and a pocket all made up and all you need to do is bind the paper bags and decorate the pages with pattern papers and embellishments.       What I really love about mini albums like this is that they look small but they can fit lots of …

One Page Wonder Interactive Mini Album

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share my farewell project for the Graphic 45 design team: One Page Wonder Interactive Mini Album. I had a lot of fun creating it and before you ask for a tutorial I promise to make one for you.     One Page Wonder Interactive Mini Album As a final project, I wanted to create something that is really me. This project is me in all sorts of ways. First, it’s a one-page wonder project which you know I love. It features one of my all-time favorite collection: Steampunk Debutante. It has an interactive mechanism in it and it utilizes a lot of leftovers, which is something I always challenge myself to do.           The mini album was created from one 12×12 black cardstock. I then covered its pages with the pattern paper and added the flaps and pockets. The binding is a really simple binding with a ribbon. It was hard to capture all the details in this mini …

Interactive Mini Album with Scrap and Craft

Hello dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you an Interactive Mini Album with Scrap and Craft. You’ve seen me create interactive mini albums before, but I wanted to show you how easy it is to make them even if you’re a beginner!     Interactive Mini Album with Scrap and Craft The idea is to cover an accordion mini album with pattern paper but instead of just attaching a page you’ll attach an interactive mechanism. The size of the accordion mini album pages are 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ so all the cover papers should measure 5″ x 5″. However by cutting the paper in a larger size you can turn any page into an interactive page. Here’s how: First double page: Left side: cut the paper 7″ x 5″ and score at 5″on the longer side. You’ll get a side flap on the left by attaching the 5″ x 5″ flap to the album page while …

Black background Mini Album

Hi dear crafty friends! Today i want to share with you my new Black background Mini Album. I realized that unless I’m working with Graphic 45 papers I don’t use black cardstock to construct my mini albums. So I decided to try it!     Black background Mini Album I decided to combine the black base of the mini album with a very floral paper collection especially for the coming spring. To my surprise it turned out really well. The black compliments the bright colors and makes them pop! In this 8×8 mini album I included all kinds of interactive mechanisms. I liked the black background so much I even left some of the pages and elements uncovered and only embellished.               How about you? have you ever created a Black background Mini Album? I hope you’ll find the right paper collection and try it. the result is really beautiful! Don’t miss out! Keep up …

It’s another easy project that you can create from only one piece of 12 x 12 double sided cardstock.     One Page Wonder Mini Album for Studio 75 DT Here’s how to create it: Score your paper vertically on 3 7/8″, 4″, 8″ and 8 1/4″.

Remove those little pieces completely to create gaps between the sections of the mini album. Repeat on the top as well. Apply glue on both sides of each of the bottom flaps and attach to the paper to create pockets.  Add inserts, photos or journaling cards inside the pockets. close …

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 …
