Graphic 45 Fashionista Gatefold Mini Album

I wanted to make a mini for someone special to me so she could put her favorite fashionista moments all in one book. I think once her photos are in here this will be a very cute mini. Lots of flaps and pull outs, too many really to show them all. But each page has one or the other and sometimes both.

The photos can be inserted into the rulered papers and behind those gorgeous images Graphic 45 is so good at, are tucked in tags to journal or for photos.

Then come all the flaps.....
And the tuck-in spots and pull-outs...

                                            So much in one mini book!

Christmas toilet paper mini book

How cute is this toilet paper mini? Just grab yourself a 6 x 6 holiday paper pack, 5 flattened toilet paper rolls, ink for the edges and don't forget to invite your sister to come over and play in your craft room! We covered ours with a chipboard front and back and some binding made from two layers of sanded cardstock. I just love the way it turned out.

Then we Cinched the rolls together and glued the last page to the chipboard back, 

then cut the binding to fit adding in the dimensions of the Cinch rings and attached it to the front cover.
We made some little tags to put inside the rolls....

inked them with Rangers Fire Brick ink

decorated the pages with cut-outs from the paper pack

added some texture using that cool sandable cardstock from Core'dinations by Jenni Bowlin. And wallah! A pretty little book is made. And it was so much fun we made another one just like it!!

Simple Stories Wallet mini

 This was a really fun and easy project. I saw the tutorial online by creativecafe, thought it was so pretty. I made a few revisions to fit the paper line I chose.
Mini, Mini book on the cover for fun!

I'm actually standing on my craft room chair to get this all in the frame. Lots of pockets in this little mini to fill up with photos.

Baby Boy Mini Album DCWV Baby Boy Stack

Chipboard mini was made with  DCWV Glitter Baby Boy Stack .....and lots of fun embellishments, stamps, ribbons and markers.

Mini Album using Tim Holtz Crowded Attic Paper Stash

I used Glossy Accent on the cover to adhere the chain and gears and will insert a word into the plaque and glue it down when I decide the title. This Crowded Attic paper collection doesn't really need tons of embellishments. The paper really does it all. I just added some stamping and embossing and some ripped pages from an old dictionary for added interest. I think this mini is gender neutral so I can stash this one away and be able to use it as a gift for either male or female. Get your papers out & create!
