6"x8" Sweet Memories Mini-Album Tutorial

Good Morning!

 I've been working working working!! It's been a lot of fun though and a whole new learning experience:) I was seriously burning the midnight oil last night to put the finishing touches on a new tutorial.

 My 6"x8" "Sweet Memories" mini-album tutorial is now in my Etsy shop HERE.

 As with my other tutorials, this one will walk you through step-by-step how to create the front and back covers and all 14 pages with photo mats and tags. I've also included instructions for finishing off the spine with the ribbon, bow and charm. The tutorial is 38 pages long with 86 photos.

My mini-album tutorials DO NOT include the instructions for the binding and cover assembly. I offer that in a separate tutorial in my shop in both 8" and 6" sizes. I plan to offer many mini-album tutorials in the future in both sizes, so it's a one-time purchase on the binding tutorials that can be used over and over in your crafting adventures.

 I've stitched all of the pages and photo mats/tags in this mini and I've included specific steps in the tutorial for when and how to do this. If you choose not to stitch the mini, that's ok too! You can still create this mini using the tutorial and just skip right over those stitching steps.

 What if you can't find the Basic Grey "Kissing Booth" collection or you want to use a different paper collection? No problem! The measurements in this tutorial are not specific to those papers. In fact, I've used a few papers from my stash in various places throughout the mini. All you need is your favorite 12x12 or 8x8 paper collection and you're off and running!

 I'm currently working on a new 6" mini and should have that finished up this week. I hope to have a video of it up on my YouTube channel by the end of the weekend.

 One other little piece of business news: 

 I'm starting a Facebook fan page (hopefully today) for my Etsy shop and I'd love it if you'd come become a fan! I'll try to get a button on my blog here to make that easy for you:) I've got some plans in the works to help grow my little business venture and shhhhhhhhh....they might just include giveaways on mini-albums.....(I want to see how many people are actually reading all of my blabbering on here:))

 Hope you all have a fantastic Tuesday and I'm off to go get crafty!
