Good Morning!

I have the PDF tutorial of this mini now available in my Etsy shop HERE.

The tutorial is 40 pages long with 103 photos and goes through the step-by-step process of the front and back covers and all 10 pages with photo mats and journaling tags. It's available as a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY (no email attachment is possible due to the size of this file)

Here's the YouTube video of this mini to show all the little details:

This completed mini is currently listed on eBay HERE ending 4/2/13, if you're interested.

So thankful it's almost the weekend! Hope you all can squeak a little scrappy time in!

4"x6" Micro-Mini

I've just finished a new album that I'm calling a "micro-mini". Well, it's micro to me, since most of my minis are not really that mini. This album, believe it or not, will hold 47 pics!! The pics will need to be wallet-sized or smaller, but I tried it out with some small shots of my dog and it was really cute! I'll be uploading a video of this one by the end of the week and I'll demonstrate using those pics.

I've been wanting to do a really small one like this ever since I placed an order with Wild Orchid Crafts and accidentally bought a whole lot of closed rosebuds in a teeny tiny size. They were really unusable in my albums because they were so tiny. So... I designed a teeny tiny mini to use them in!

This mini has a different page design on each page and several new features. I'll have the tutorial of it in  my Etsy shop hopefully by Friday of this week. Using the tutorial, it will be easy to create this one within a week spending an hour or two a day and it uses one 6x6 paper pad. It will make a quick gift-giving option when you want to do a little something handmade. I used the MME "Bramble Rose" 6x6 pad on this one, but you could easily use any 6x6 paper for any occasion. It would be adorable as a new baby gift!

I'll post a link later on in the week to the video of this mini so you can see all the details.

This completed album is currently listed on eBay HERE ending on 4/2/13.

Hope your week gets off to a great start!

6x8 Botanical Noel PDF Tutorial

Good Morning!

 I've been working away these past few weeks on re-creating the Botanical Noel mini and developing the PDF tutorial and it's now in the shop. This is a HUGE file! The tutorial is 57 pages long with 146 photos. Some of the pages in this mini had a lot of steps involved and I've broken down the process in {hopefully} very manageable steps with lots of photos along the way to clarify.

 This one is available as a digital download only through MediaFire as it's way too big to send as an email attachment. The beautiful thing about the digital download is viewing these on an iPad or similar tablet. It's just a click of a button and the document can be viewed in a Kindle app right on your workspace. It's easy to enlarge the photos if you need to and flip through the pages quickly.

 The PDF tutorial is available HERE.

 I'm starting on a new mini this week that I think will make a really nice gift-giving option. I'll be doing a tutorial on this one as I create it, so it will be available right away after completion of the mini. It should be fairly quick to work up if you have someone that you'd really like to make a little something handmade for and not a lot of time.

 Hope you all have a great start to your week!
