Mini album - Colorado

Hello fellow stampers and card makers,

I know it's been awhile since I posted but I have been working on a very special project. I love making mini albums even though they can be time consuming, I find them so much fun to create.  My current project, however, is a mini album that includes the customer's pictures (I usually make empty albums).

I am so excited to share my finished project with you.  This album is for a couple's Colorado vacation and include over 100 pictures! The album cover closes in the front with clasps - due to the thickness, I think this will protect the pages the best.

The each page measures 7 x 10 and is made as a pocket that connects to the binding.  Each sleeve includes a large photo mat that are tabbed. Each page was made to be very interactive.  Below a few of my favorites.

I used several different papers that show case the beautiful photo from Colorado. I selected designs papers that look like different textures like river rock, wood grain, brick…

50th Wedding Anniversary Card Tutorial

Hello fellow card makers!

Happy Sunday to everyone.  I apologize for not keeping up on blog posts - the start of fall has me really hopping. I finally am able to take some time and post about some of the fun projects I have been working on.

I have been getting some questions about an anniversary card a made awhile ago so here's the step by step instructions on how I made it.  The card is easier to make than it looks - but that's what we are going for, right! The main idea here is to mix and match your dies to create something unique and really special.

The card is made from two different card stocks - shimmer white and shimmer gold both from Stampin' Up. I like to build my cards from the base up. For the base of the card, you will need one large piece of shimmer white that measures 10" x 7" and folded in half on the 10" side. For the next layer, cut a piece of shimmer gold that measures 6 3/4" x 4 3/4".  These two pieces make the base of your card.
