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
