Quick Family Vacation

I tried, I really did! I wanted to have a new set of instructions ready for you before I went on a short trip to visit some of my family, but I just couldn't get it all done before I left. I hope to complete it and have instructions for you some time after I return.

In the meantime, just to let everyone know that any orders you make for instructions, between Monday, November 23rd and Tuesday, December 1st, may take longer to receive while I am visiting some of my family in Arizona.

Happy Papercrafting everyone!

Tall & Skinny Accordion Mini Album

I have another fun project for you that would make a wonderful Christmas gift! Of course it can be created to fit any kind of occasion. The one I am showing you does not yet have photos in it, but I will add the photos later so that you can see what I've done with is mini. I am working on several projects to have completed for Christmas by November 20th. Of course, as it is with all of us, things take longer to completed than anticipated. I will be travelling to Arizona, and will want to drop off my Christmas gifts while there, so that is why I'm posting this before I have added the photos in it. I want you to have enough time to create one or two before your Christmas gift making deadline.

So here are a few photos of the mini album.

As you can see this little mini will hold a ton of photos. It has a three magnet closure, and closed, measures 4 1/4"w x 8 1/2"h x 1" thick.

I used Stampin' Up!'s "Timeless Elegance" DSP (138444). I used 14 sheets, which means that you may need to purchase two packages of this lovely designer paper, or fill with 2 or three sheets that would blend well with it. I am looking forward to getting the photos in there for one of my daughters as her Christmas gift of her 2015 photos.

The instructions are constructed with step by step photos, sorry no video, and are 24 pages in length. If you require additional help just email me -

Below is the link to purchasing the instructions if you are interested. If you wish to see what Stampin' Up! product I used for this project, check it out here.You will find it at the end of the post. If you wish to order anything, you may contact your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator or go to my store to shop, here.

Hope that you will have a lot fun creating this unique mini album for yourself, family & friends.

Happy Papercrafting!

Tall & Skinny Flip Folio

With having so many difficulties with cameras, and iPad uploading of videos to YouTube, I've had to make a decision. As I can't replace my camera, and have other recording issues, I am going the old way for now by preparing my instructions with step by step photos and instructions. I do hope, one day, to get back to videos. So in the mean time, to keep things easier for now, my projects will be more simple.

Today I am showing you the instructions for a birthday gift I made for my Mom. Her health is not what it used to be, and she can't go to her beloved Butchart Gardens any longer. So I decided to create a little something that would bring them to her. I created a simple Tall & Skinny Folio filled with photos of the lovely gardens.

Here are some photos of the project.

There are 52 photos in this folio, and I managed that by printing most of the photos as wallet sized, punching many of them in 2" circles. For the photos on the little square envelope pockets, they were printed as 3 1/3" x 5 1/2" photos and cut down. There are three panoramic photos that where printed at 7" wide.

This tall & Skinny Flip Folio would be great to make and give to family and friends for their Christmas photos, just change the designer paper that you use. As many occasions as you can think would make this project a great display and memory keeper.

Happy papercrafting!
