6x8 Sweet Memories Valentine's Mini

Hope everyone's enjoying a nice long weekend (sorry if you don't have Monday off)!

 Here's my latest mini-album using the BasicGrey Kissing Booth collection. This is a 6x8 album with 14 pages and a few new features inside. I've designed my own version of a "waterfall" feature with graduated pages that lay flat when you open them (no folds or bending photos like some of them out there) and each page has a tag inside!

 All of the pages in this album are stitched and there's 18 photo mats/tags and room for 50+ photos. I've included accordion-folds,folded pullout photo mats, a gate-fold and lots of magnetic closures (as usual) in this one. I do love those magnets! This was such a fun paper line to work with! The mix of pinks and yellows is so bright and cheerful and the quirkiness of a little bit of office theme and birds somehow works. I was able to make this album with just one package of the 12x12 papers, a few of the stickers and embellishments, and my own addition of accents like mulberry rolled roses and metal/rhinestone hearts, etc.

 This album will be listed on eBay tonight 1/20 ending on 1/27. HERE is a link to the listing, if you're interested.

 Here's a video on this mini to show the details a bit better:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come back soon for more tutorial news!


  1. When will you be posting the tutorial for this mini in your Etsy store? Would love to learn how to make this one! Thanks

    1. I'll be listing this tutorial hopefully by the end of this week. Just putting the finishing touches on it:)

  2. Love this sweet. I would love a tutorial on this as well...but Botanical Noel first, lol...what about tutorials on how you did the waterfall page with the inserts that would be neat.

    1. Felicia,
      Thanks for keeping that fire burning under me on the Botanical Noel:) I'll be listing this one first and the waterfall feature is included. It's going to be a big file!!
