6x6 "Celebrate Autumn" Mini-Album

Good Morning!

I've just finished a little 6x6 Fall mini using the 6x6 "All Hallows' Eve" PDF tutorial available in my Etsy shop HERE.

I used the Recollections "Harvest Delight" collection in this mini and a little bit of the DCWV "Pumpkin Patch" 6x6 paper pads. I decided to stitch this album and although the tutorial doesn't include the sewing steps, I can give you some extra directions on that if you've purchased this one and would like to give it a try. I've also changed up the flaps a little bit and used the PTI Edgers die that I used in the G45 Christmas album from a few weeks ago. Love those dies and they're fairly easy to sew around!

I have this mini listed on eBay and ran a 5 day auction this time in case anyone interested in purchasing this album would like to receive it by Thanksgiving Day. I'm all set to ship this out Priority Mail first thing Monday morning and while I can't control what the USPS does, there's a really good chance it will arrive to its new home by Thanksgiving:)

The eBay listing can be found HERE and ends this Sunday night 11/24.

I'm jumping right in this morning on the remake of the 8x8 Rooster Provincial album from last Fall. I hope to have the tutorial finished in the next 3 weeks or so! I'm adding a little extra detail to this album from the original version keeping all of the main features the same, but making extra space for photos and a little bit more interaction:) I know the papers I used in that album are long since discontinued, so I've got a few different takes on that album planned and very excited to share the possibilities with that page design!

Hope you'll check back in a few weeks or so and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

8x8 Twelve Days of Christmas PDF Tutorial

It's finished!!

I've got the 8x8 Twelve Days of Christmas mini-album PDF tutorial now available in my Etsy shop HERE.

This is a very large file, so if you purchase this tutorial, please be patient during the download. It's averaging 4-5 minutes on a computer. iPad users- you will be able to download this file if you have an iPad 2 or newer version. I'm having difficulty downloading it to my original iPad and hope to have a fix for this problem later on today.

**UPDATE: I've fixed the problem for anyone wishing to purchase this tutorial and view on an iPad!

Hope everyone's having a great week!

8"x8" "12 Days of Christmas" Mini-Album

Whew! I finally finished it!! This album has been about 2 months in the planning stages (it didn't take 2 months to make, so don't let that discourage you if you're interested in the tutorial!), and I'm so excited to share this one today! This one features the new Graphic45 "Twelve Days of Christmas" paper collection and these papers are GORGEOUS!

It's an 8x8 album, 14 pages and stitched, though you can easily make this album without stitching the pages if you're not quite ready to give that a go:) There's 12 new page designs with 2 of the page designs repeating and a couple of half pages for a fun new addition that you can add to any of the 8" albums, if you like.

I used about one and a half 8x8 paper pads and about half of the 12x12 pad in this album. If you want to make this, but you don't want to purchase quite that much of the G45 papers, you can always use some papers from your stash in complimentary colors on the inside of the features. I also used the "pockets and tags" sheet, sticker sheet, chipboard tags 1 and 2 and the pennants die-cut sheet. I love the way G45 is making all of the coordinating accent pieces to the papers now! Makes it nice and easy to embellish and make little closures, etc.

This album is listed on eBay HERE ending on Sunday 11/10, if you're interested.

The PDF tutorial for this album will be finished on Friday Nov. 8th and I'll also post a link here to that listing in my Etsy shop. This is going to be a large file and I'll be working away on this all week to get it in document form, so thank you in advance for being patient with me as I get this all finished up. I have to apologize for coming in a little late with a Christmas tutorial, but it really will work up fairly quickly! I know it may not look like it will, but just trust me:)

Hope you're all enjoying a beautiful fall weekend!
