"Enjoy the Journey"

I made this mini album using a tutorial series by Scrap Queen on YouTube.

I am calling it "Enjoy the Journey".  It uses Authentique's "Quest" paper pack and also Tim Holtz "Correspondence" papers.
 Here are just a few pictures.
 This album has lots of pockets and flips and pull outs.
 It has some places with photo mats...
 ...and some places left "open" for pictures.
 Each page also has a pocket for a booklet pullout.  There are 5 in all.

 Isn't it lovely?
I made a slideshow on my YouTube Channel.  You can see it here.  In the description I have put links to the tutorials that I followed to make this album.  

I hope you enjoy it.  Have a wonderfully crafty day.  See you after vacation!!!

"The Mouse and Me"

I am using a tutorial from a very talented lady named Ann Marie Cholewinski.  She made an adorable album called "The Best Trip Ever".  You can see her video walk-through here.
I made it and I LOVE IT!  I had some old papers from Simple Stories and this album is sized so I could use a bunch of 6x6 papers!  I think it turned out super cute...so much so that I started another one!
I didn't have enough to make another one, so I ran to Craft Warehouse and bought some papers by Echo Park to make this one.  Again, I love this album!

Just thought I would share the "creative process" with you.  Believe it or not, I know exactly where everything is!

Hop on over to her YouTube channel and check out her tutorial.  I know you will love it too.

I will be gone for the next week or so, as I am going on VACATION!!!  I'll miss you, but will see you soon!

Stay crafty!!

Good Vibes

Today I did a mini album share on my "Good Vibes" mini album.  This album is another variation of my page configurations album that I have done lately.

Click on this sentence to go to the YouTube Slideshow!

I used My Mind's Eye papers, "Good Vibes" along with their ephemera and stickers and also some pieces from Crate Paper's "Good Vibes" frames and ephemra.

Tutorials for the page configurations are also available.  I used 10 of the configurations on this album, one on each side of a single page attached to the spine.

The 20 page configurations are here.
The way I put them together making "page sets"  in my "Happiness is Homemade" album are here.

I have also used this style of page configurations in a totally different way in my "Tall Skinny Mini" and my "Short Chunky Mini" albums.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a crafty day!

The Page Set Tutorial is Uploaded!

Hi everyone!

I have uploaded the video for the tutorial showing how I took my 20 different page configurations and made them into 5 page sets using 4 configurations each.  I show how I put them together to create exactly the same pages in my "Happiness is Homemade" album.

As a bonus, I came up with another idea and will show what I did for my "Good Vibes" album using 10 of the page configurations using a base page in a different way!

Click here for the link to the video.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a CRAFTY DAY!~

Tutorial available for my "Page configurations"!

Page configurations?  You may be wondering what that is.  I did another take on my "Tall Skinny Mini Album" and my "Short Chunky Mini Album" to create yet another mini where pages range from 4 1/4" to 7 1/2" wide and are 7 1/2" tall.  My tutorial shows 20 different pages to make, just using one 12x12" piece of card stock, a scoreboard, scissors and some adhesive.

The cover to this album is 8x8", and the spine is 3" wide.

Here is a link to the slideshow I made to show the pages of a finished album using my "Page Configurations".

Here is a picture of the album itself...

Here is a link to the tutorial on YouTube.  This is the first tutorial, the next one will show exactly how I attached the 20 pages together to make the 5 "Page Sets" used in the album. The "page sets" provide a variety of pockets, flips and flaps that will make this the most interactive album ever!  I will post that link when I am able to get it done.

Happy Crafting, my Friends!
