I started blogging my crafty creations just over two years ago when I created Cuttin' and Stampin'. It was my way of sharing some of my crafty creations to a larger audience and sell some crafty goodies to others. In such a short period of time, the original blog has developed a life of it's own with a Design Team and weekly challenges. This world wide web has allowed me to meet and get to know so many wonderful people and make some truly life long friends. You may not believe it, but I have a real hard time speaking with people in public places. I get all tongue tied and embarrassed about every word that comes out of my mouth.
When I'm not working or crafting, my husband and I do quite a bit of traveling on the back of a GL1800 Goldwing. It's an amazing way to see the country with the wind in your face and being exposed to all the elements. We take long trips that provide me with tons of great pictures to scrap and lots of jounaling to do. We have one son that I used to arm wrestle with to see who got to ride with dad this week. Now he has reached an age where he can travel on a bike of his own. We have a really close knit family an it's great that we can enjoy the road together.
I really need to give credit to Angle Wings 14100 off of YouTube. She created an awesome video with great instructions. You can access them here - Tutorial Video
I made my share of mistakes, so give me a little leeway on the creation of my first mini. I started with some Bazzill Kraft card stock and created my cover and all the pages. Then inked around the edges .
I used the He Said She Said Paper packet from Teresa Collins. There was an additional elements package that contained mini file folders and I tried to make them fit in too.
Here's the flap opened up.
Here's the second pages of the album. I left the big square to hold a nice size photo. The tags on the right side are removable and can be used to mount pictures on the back or do some journaling.
Once you fold the page down I used another file folder to create an added spot. Then I used three celo bags that are 3" x 6" to create a section of clear picture or tag pockets.
Until next time,
