Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing How to Create Odd Shape Mini Album Pages using my Flip Flop Mini Album as an example. It’s really fun to create mini albums that have pages in different shapes.

Art Journal Inspiration Mini Book

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a really cool and fun project: Art Journal Inspiration Mini Book. The special thing about this project is that it’s all done from only one piece of A3 water color paper. All you need are a few acrylic paints and stencils to create your own Art Journal Inspiration Mini Book.     Art Journal Inspiration Mini Book The first thing you need to do is create the background for the pages. So I used acrylic paints and stencils to fill the paper with colorful and interesting patterns. Don’t worry if it looks a little noisy now it will all look great later.

Hi dear crafty friends! This month I had to create Easy Paper Projects with Graphic 45 papers. Not all G45 projects have to be complicated with lots of steps. You can create fun, fast and easy projects too!     Easy Paper Projects with Graphic 45 My first project is an easy and fast adjustable vacation notebook. This project is perfect for all your vacation memories and it even has a special envelope for things like tickets, brochures and other memorabilia you want to keep.

If you don’t have something like that then just bind it with a ring or two.       My second project is also fun and easy: ATC’s with the new Master Detective collection. I found out that ATC’s are really fun to make and it’s even …
