Gatefold Photo Folio

May 24, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a wonderful week. Today I am thrilled to be able to share a gatefold photo folio with you. Folios are a wonderful way to store lots of photos and they also make wonderful gifts for friends and family.

To decorate my folio, I kept my design simple, using a minimal background paper highlighted by the textures of the flowers from the sticker sheet. It also has a magnetic closure.

Inside the folio the three sections enable spaces for lots of photos!


The cutapart cards make perfect tags. The sentiments are heartfelt and varied in this collection.


Below is a video walkthrough as I go through and share all of the components of this gatefold photo folio.

Christmas Mini Album Tutorial Tuesday Videos

Christmas Envelope Mini Album Tutorial

October 17, 2017

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week viewing the new collections from Kaisercraft. As you have seen, Kaisercraft have released some beautiful Christmas collections this year and the Mint Wishes Collection certainly doesn’t disappoint. Today I am sharing an envelope mini album that I created using this collection. This album is a gift for a dear friend of mine who is a proud ‘poppy.’ He enjoys sharing pictures of his grandson from his phone, so my gift to him is this album. As he is a non crafter, the album is straight forward therefore it is easy to construct.

I have two videos to share with you. One is a walk through of the completed album and the second is the tutorial. So grab a cuppa and enjoy!


The Video Walk Through

The next video is the tutorial. This is a lengthy video as it was filmed in real time. To assist you in your viewing, you can fast forward to the following sections:

33m matting the covers

39min hinges

51min pages and inserts

57min matting pages and inserts

1hr 1min attaching pages to album

1hr 3 min creating the pocket and belly band





The format of the album was deliberate. I didn’t want it to be too difficult for my friend, as some mini albums have a lot of interactions. However there are still lots of spaces for photos.


Mini books are great inserts into mini albums. You can journal and add small photos. The sentiments from the cut a part sheet are great for creating these.

The papers in the collection coordinate beautifully! You can mix and match so all of the components of your album effortlessly. By limiting the colour palet, it makes the designing the album less complicated and it makes the whole experience enjoyable.


Kaisercraft Products:  PP234 Mint Wishes 12 x 12 Paper Pad| SS348 Sticker Sheet | CT891 Collectables | Cardstock CD102 Licorice and CD651 Kraft |CD509 Card Pack Square | Rhinestones RS445 Ice and SB700 Silver| T321 Glue| T318 Craft Knife| T317 Craft Scissors

Other: Distress Ink Vintage Photo |Scor-Tape| Crop-o-dile Corner Chomper Tool Deco and Stub and Corner Rounder Tools.


I hope you’ll try and create an envelope mini album with one of the Kaisercraft Collections.

With one pack of envelopes, you can make two mini albums. These are great as gifts and also Christmas is coming!

Happy crafting!

Hugs from Cathy

Rose Avenue Mini Album with Process Video

October 16, 2017

Do you ever have a few memorable photos that you think deserve a special Album? Do you ever create or decorate Mini Albums? Mini Albums are perfect for showcasing little collections of photographs.  Today I am sharing how to make a Small Polaroid Mini Album for four photos using Kaisercraft’s Rose Avenue Collection.  I filmed the process for making this Album so you can see exactly how it came together.

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue Mini Album By Alicia McNamara

Being a Mum of two precious boys I don’t have a lot of pink girly photographs in my personal collection or a lot of pink girly things in my home.  Even though I am a girly-girl at heart, most of my photos have blue-t-shirts, caps, balls and boys toys in them.  Luckily I do have friends that have little girls and I do happen to have some friends that are very talented at hosting amazing birthday parties.

When one of my friend’s said her little girl’s first birthday party was going to be a ballerina theme I did get a little bit excited.  Especially as this particular friend is an amazing cook as well and I certainly wasn’t disappointed! The party was gorgeous and the food just blew me away.  My friend hand-made everything (including the cake) and I took lots of photographs on the day of all the lovely pink, ballerina food.  All of this meant that I had a collection of yummy pink party food photographs and I thought they deserved a special place in a Mini Album.

Rose Avenue Collection

The Rose Avenue Collection is perfect for scrapping those girly-girl photos.  It is filled with Shabby Chic gorgeousness – roses, butterflies and lots of pretty pastel colours.  For this Mini Album I chose to use Kaisercraft’s Small Polaroid Album.  It is just the right design for whipping up a quick Mini Album to showcase four special photographs.  I used one 12×12 Paper for this project and one page from the Paper Pad.

How I made the Album

Kaisercraft Rose Avenue Mini Album By Alicia McNamara

To begin with I inked the chipboard album in Pink ink.  Then I used paint and texture paste to paint over the top of the pink ink through this template to create a textured pattern on the chipboard album.I’m a big fan of swirls and flourishes…there is something that I love about them…and this new Template from Kaisercraft SWIRL FLOURISH is just divine.

I adhered my photographs onto 12×12 Paper WOOD PANELS and then it was just a simple matter of gluing the photo and the frame together.

Once the pages of the Album were assembled I was up to the decorating part.  I used a variety of Mini Paper Blooms, Fussy-cut Roses, Wooden Flourishes, Flourish Die Cuts and Cheese Cloth scraps to decorate each page.  Here is the Process Video that shows exactly how I made the Album:

This Mini Album will be the perfect gift for my friend….I hope she likes it : )
