The Everlasting and Everlasting Mini-Album

A good Monday to all.  The rain has passed on and today is a beautiful day - not too cold or warm - just right!

Like I mentioned in my last  post I have been working on mini-albums using patterns and youtube tutorials by Jen-of-Eve.  The one I am showing is my second mini-album from her patterns.

Here is part one (I believe) of the

The above is Part 1, and I just finished Parts 4 and 5

Granddaughter's Birthday Card

It has been quite awhile since I posted anything, mainly because I have been working on mini-albums to sell at my Etsy store shop...

On to the birthday card I made for my granddaughter who turn 14 years old back in November of 2017.   I'm not able to locate the youtube video of this card so onto the photos:

This the front cover of the birthday card.  The picture was colored in using app on my iPad called Recolor.  I color a lot of pictures to relieve the stress. :-)  I printed the picture and applied to the front of the card matting on cardstock.

This is the inside of the card using another colored page from my iPad colored with recolor app on my iPad.  When I seen this picture I thought immediately of my granddaughter.

This is four sections cut to size and accordion folded to fit inside at the ends to create this framed box.  Each fold can apply embellishments of your choice.  Since my granddaughter loves Spearmint chewing gum, I purchased a big package and placed individual sticks of gum into the folded section, as shown in the next photol

As you will notice I placed gum in each accordion fold and she had extra to chew as well.  I did place a tab on the side to close the boxed book card with Velcro.

Here is another photo of the birthday card:

I hope you enjoyed the boxed book card, and have a blessed day.

Stack the Pages Mini-album

Hey, hey from cold chilly Alabama.  It's finally FALL here!!  Love, love the weather - hot and humidity not my 'cup of tea'...LOL

After watching Jen of Eve Designs video of her Stack the Pages

and she had mentioned in her description the stack the deck binding system by Laura Denison I realized that I can do this with what I have in my stash of papers.  And using Jen of Eve Designs 'Everlasting' mini-albums pages from her tutorial pdf (available on I can create this without purchasing her tutorial!!

So here is what I have done so far.  It's a work in progress....

Front page with a pocket and flap. I have a insert inside the front envelope pocket, but not matted as of yet.  I am using paper I have on hand.  And there is a insert in the side pocket that I will show in a later post.

This picture shows page 2 and 3 of the mini album.  I attached the third page to the stack in the deck binding system and love, love it. 

Stayed tuned for more pictures of the completed pictures.  In all there will be six album pages.  Attaching the completed pages will be done as soon as I get to Hobby Lobby and get myself their double sided adhesive.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed week.
