More Mini Albums

Good Morning!  Well almost  Well I shared my albums with the ladies group last night and they all like them.  I think the Christmas themed one is going to be a project for us in the near future so I'm going to have to start gathering all those little pieces of paper I have laying around with the measurements.  I know I definitely want to do one using all Graphic 45 Christmas papers so I better start collecting now!
I'm also going to have to start making some of the embellishments every now and then so I have everything ready and maybe it won't take me an entire week to get the next one done!
  So first is the boy version of the girl one I posted yesterday, or was it the day before?  Eh  "what ever". ha haha.

I folded this a little different by having the 1st page of the accordion flip up (the Jack page)  Just to change things up a bit.  I haven't yet made the belly band to keep it closed, so I have to work on that.  (not entirly true...1st band didn't fit!  LOL)

Next is the Christmas one and I really do love this book!
  I can't wait to make another.
Front ties closed

inside cover both sides next open page on right to the right

page on left has cascading flaps and you flip page on right to the right

middle page are flaps and page on right has a mini book 

entire interior of book

Back side of book

pages of book within a book
When you have the book opened you just take the last page and keep folding to the left like your rolling it up then tie it closed.  So cute.  There are little tags in the pockets and you can add as many as you want and then there are still areas for some photos which could also be added to the pockets if you'd like.  I think this would make an AWESOME gift.   Hmmmmm...I wonder who'll get mine????

Well til later...I have to get going on Easter cards........



  1. These must be so much fun to make, Susan! They are certainly delightful to look at!! Sensational work!

  2. Such adorable cute mini albums!!
    Ps : I am having a celebration on my blog with prizes...would love to have you join in.Here is the link : 5 Million Page-views Celebration

  3. Susan! This is just mind boggling creative! What a fabulous mini album - it looks like it took forever! I love the paper choice and how neat it just stores nicely once it's folded. You should do a youtube tutorial for this stunning book :)

  4. Thanks everyone! took me a L O N G to get the hang of this blog and I still haven[t figured some things out. Youtube seems a bit advanced for this old girl! LOL Maybe someday.

  5. Oh. My. Word. These are all gorgeous. I don't see me ever being able to create something like that...just combining patterns as beautifully as you have done would be beyond me.

    1. Kim it's easier than you think combining the paper .... the trick is using a paper pad with coordinating papers! LOL
