Introducting New Series, New Album, Kits & Videos

Today starts the new Beginner Series.  This series has about 5 or more mini albums and will continue into the new year.  The mini albums will include tutorials, kits and videos, which include the entire project with the cover, pages and matting. 

This series is for beginners or if you want an easy, fun and fast project to work on.  This post has the first project of the series where I will teach you how to make mini albums.  Below you will find pictures, kit review, a preview video and the construction video.  The next video will focus on tools and what is needed to make these albums.

Altoid Tin with Mini Album (Free Tutorial)


I altered an Altoid Tin and used some mini folders as pages for a mini album.  The paper collection I used was Graphic 45 French Country.  This project is perfect for left over scraps. 

Below you will find the tutorial which lists the supplies needed and a step-by-step guide on how to make this cute little project.  Additional pictures and pre-view video to see all of the pages are below as well.



(This video is only a pre-view of the entire project)

Hurricane Irma and Tutorial Purchases

Hurricane Irma is about to hit Florida, which is where I reside.  This Hurricane has not quite figured out what it wants to do.  I am in northeast Florida.  It has changed its mind every day.  So today it wants to go up the west coast and drop to a category 2 on its way up, then jump in the ocean for a dip and get power and go up to a category 3 by the time it gets to north Florida.  Not sure how it will affect me yet, but I am prepared.  I have food, water, and boarded up my back sliding glass door.  Not sure about boarding up my front windows yet.  Waiting to see what tomorrow holds (Sunday).

So most of you know that I manually e-mail tutorials.  However, if my power goes out, which is expected, then I can't do it. 

Please be patient if I don't get your tutorial out right away.  If power goes out, I will e-mail the tutorials as soon as it goes back on.  Again, thank you for your patience.

Pray for Floridians, especially south Florida and the coast that is going to get hit bad.  Because of the Hurricane changing to the west coast they aren't as prepared as the east coast.  Prayers to those who stayed.

Out with the Old and in with the New.  All my kits are on sale.  As some of you may know, I am in the process of moving and I don't want to pack these kits up and take them with me.   Well that is not the only reason, but it is a good one.

Kits are located under the "Kit/Shop" tab above or click HERE.

I am going to be starting a new series beginning in September that will run until the end of the year.  More information later to come, your not going to want to miss it.

Photo Issues on Blog (Tutorial and Kit areas)

It has come to my attention that all my pictures for the Tutorial and Kit pages have been missing because Photobucket updated their system.  I have to search for a new place to upload my pictures to and get an embedding code to put on my blog.  Please bear with me as I try to find a solution to this problem.  Thank you.

Wild and Free Mini Album (Prima)

I know it's been some time since my last post and project.  I am dealing with a short sale and packing my house to move.  Because of this move, I have to shrink my scrapbook room, which is tough for me to do.  I have yet to move, still in the process.  It's taking some time.  Because of all of this, my mojo has left the building.  So I'm starting slow with just a little Prima project.  There are no kits or tutorials for this.  I purchase a Prima, Frank Garcia - Memory Hardware, Tiny Mini Album, 6 x 6" pad of Wild and Free paper collection, ephemera, and flowers.  This was a nice, cute little project that I am hoping will bring me back my mojo and start dishing out projects again.  Things are moving slowly, but they are moving.


Supplies: Prima - Frank Garcia - Memory Hardware Tiny; 6 x 6" Prima Wild and Free paper; Wild and Free Ephemera pack; and Wild and Free Flowers.  (More supplies listed below)

There are some molded pieces on this album.  Such as the Keyhole (Prima Mold) above, and the frame and heart (ModPodge) below.


 These two waxes match this paper collection perfectly.


I used a Spellbinders die on the right and the left page uses Martha Stewart French Scallop die.

Throughout the album on certain pieces, I would use Wink of Stella (clear) to add a little sparkle.
