Handmade Mini Album Tutorial Using Graphic 45 Album Cover

Today on my blog is a handmade album that I made for my niece who is getting married. I have been wanting to dive into making an album as I have never made one from scratch. I have watched numerous YouTube videos on how to make the chipboard album, but wanted to start with something much simpler. Therefore, I decided to purchase a chipboard album that was already made. All I had to do was pick out some pretty paper, cut, and adhere the paper and embellishments. Therefore, if you are like me and want to make an album that is EASY, below is a YouTube tutorial on how I made this album.

Supplies:

Cardstock Measurements:

Front Cover: Pink and Cream Pattern Paper 5 3/4″ x 7 1/2″, Diamond Pattern Paper 2″ x 7 1/4″, Black card stock 2 1/4″ x 7 1/2″

Back Cover: Pattern Paper 5 3/4″ x 7 1/2″

Inside Front Cover: 7 3/4″ x 5 3/4″
Inside Back Cover: 7 3/4″ x 5 3/4″

24 full pages: Patterned paper cut to 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ (Can use 24 pieces of patterned paper or you can mix patterned paper and solid card stock to make 24 pieces all cut to 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″).  Optional: If you want to have some pages with pockets on the left or right side, then cut a piece of patterned paper to 4 3/4″ x 7 1/4″ and another piece to 1 1/2″ x 7 1/4″ inches for the pocket. Decide how many of these pocket pages you want to have.

12 pieces to cover the pockets:  2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″

12 pieces to cover the tops of the pages that are above the pockets: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″

Tags:  3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and round corners

Photo mats: Black card stock cut to 3 1/4″ x 8 1/2 and then fold in half. Cut patterned paper 3″ x 4″ and adhere to black card stock.

Queen and Co Mothers Day

This is video tutorial on how to make shaker cards using Queen & Company’s “Mom” shaker kit. The kit includes shaker pieces to make 12 shaker cards, however, you can make more than that since it also includes the dies for you to make your own shaker elements or die cut pieces. In the video, I will make four shaker cards, using each of the four different shaker elements included with the kit. All supplies are linked below.

Paper Nest Dolls – Ballgown Avery Card

Hello!

Here’s another card using a beautiful stamp from the Paper Nest Dolls. This one is called “Ballgown Avery.” My son asked me to make him a card for his friend’s Quinceañera and I immediately knew this stamp would be perfect since Avery is dressed in a ballgown. I tried to replicate my son’s friend as best as I could, coloring her dress red and hair brown.  After all, red was the color of her actual dress.

Paper Nest Dolls Ice Cream Ellie

Hello!

Today on my blog I am sharing a card that I made for my BFF. When her and I get together, we always go to the beach and eat ice cream so I incorporated these two items into this card. Besides crafting, these are my other favorite things to do!

Here’s a look at the inside of the card.

Ice Cream Truck Stand Up Card

Hello!

Here is the fourth card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” I just love this cute ice cream truck and wanted to use some beautiful spring colors. I love the colors in the card. It makes me so happy!

I stamped the ice cream truck image on Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with my alcohol markers and then die cut it with the matching IceCreamTruck2Stamp dies. The ice cream cones were stamped on the same cardstock and colored with Spectrum Sparkle markers.

Ice Cream Truck Card

The butterflies are from the Butterfly2Stamp stamps and matching dies. Using Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, I used Spectrum Sparkle markers to color across the page starting with the first color and then adding the next color. Once the cardstock was colored, I stamped the image onto the colored cardstock and then die cut the image out.  I also used the small flower in the die set to die cut several flowers from the same paper colored in Spectrum Sparkle markers.  A dot of morning dew crystal drops was placed in the center of each flower. A similar Spectrum Sparkle technique can be found here: https://youtu.be/syV-gRm6u1A

Elf Ice Cream Card

Hello!

Here is the third card that I made for the Stamps of Life Fan Club Facebook group weekly challenge “ice cream.” For this card, I wanted to use a stamp set that wouldn’t normally be used for an ice cream card. This time, I used the Elves2Stamp stamp.  I stamped the image on Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth cardstock and colored with my alcohol markers and then die cut it with the matching Elves2Stamp die.

The miniature ice cream cones are from the IceCream2Stamp and were stamped onto the same cardstock and colored with Spectrum Sparkle markers. To get the double scoop of ice cream on the cones in the elf’s hand, I stamped the cone image a few times and fussy cut only the ice cream portion of the stamp two times and then layered the ice cream scoops on top of each other. Since the elf’s hands can open, I placed two ice cream cones in his hands.

Elf Ice Cream Card

The card base was die cut with the Sizzix Framelits Flip-Its by Stephanie Barnard (660714) using Banana cardstock. The patterned paper is from the Hello Friend Collection. The sentiment “for someone sweet” is also from the same patterned paper pad. The blue polka dot paper in the center was cut with a stitched rectangle die.

Elf Ice Cream Card

The Happy Birthday sentiment in the inside of the card is a stamp from the Foxes2Stamp stamp set. The “Calories don’t count on holidays” is from a stamp set from the BananaSplit2Stamp stamp set.
