Maximize your supplies: 40th Birthday Mini Album

One of the great things about mini albums is that they maximize your supplies. You can use scraps of paper to create them or like in this case one patterned paper. When I saw this paper (Cosmo Cricket Love Notes) in My Punch’s Kit of the Month Club I knew it will be a mini album. Half of the work was already done because the pattern of the paper was 6 beautiful double sided tags just waiting to be bounded together as a mini album. I always design for other people, mainly my two sons. This time I decided to make this mini all about me. So I created an inspiration quotes’ mini book for my 40th birthday. Have fun creating! Einat

Single sheet of paper: Top 10 Mini Album

If you are like me, a fan of projects made from only a single sheet of paper, you must love all the pattern papers with the journaling cards on them. They are perfect for small, fast but great one paper projects!

Make three fold lines starting from the left: first and third fold lines valley and the second middle fold line a mountain. 4. Fold the paper into a mini album. 5.

It’s that time again! The time for another great “one sheet of paper” tutorial. This month I had to go to a few events and I made a few cards.

Well, the answer is to use one sheet of paper to design three different cards and the leftovers to create the embellishments. You will need: 1 sheet of double sided cardstock. A few embellishments like ribbon and buttons Cut a 12″ by 8″ rectangle. Cut it to three rectangles 4″ by 8″ each. Card #1: window card 1. Take one rectangle.

You can find the instruction for the flower on the 101 Flower tutorial: spiral flower. …

Single sheet of paper: Growing Up mini album

It’s time for another great project made from a single sheet of double sided cardstock! A DT project created as part of the Kit of the month club for My Punch. Just the other day I was going over some photos of my kids and I suddenly realized how fast they grow. Time just flies and we hardly notice the minutes and the hours and suddenly here they are all grown up, going to school, playing with friends, not the little cute babies they were only yesterday… all of that inspired me to create a mini album with a message to my two boys, a message of love from their mom. The journaling reads: “just yesterday you were in first grade and already you go to the fifth grade. Your shoe size is already bigger than mine, you’re almost as tall as me and even your voice has started to change”. The journaling reads: “I remember when you were born, you were so …
