My Craft Room

Hi Everyone

I have seen lots of videos of people crafting, making mini albums, art journals and scrapbook pages and I have not made any videos.  I am actually a little shy.   So I thought I would break out of my shell and start making videos.  So my first one to try, I gave a quick tour of my craft room.  This way I get used to the camera and can get over being nervous doing videos.

So here is my craft room video.  My room is one of the extra bedrooms in our house.  It is the smallest room in the house but it offers quite a bit of space for me.

Firt Ever Envelope Mini Album

Graphic 45 Secret Garden Mini Album

Hello Everyone
Today, I have my first ever mini album.  I used a combination of Miss Stacy’s envelope style album and combined it with Kathy Orta’s envelope style.  I used the hidden hinge and covered the album first in cardstock and then in pattern paper.
On the cover, I used some of the G45 cut a parts along with some prima flowers and a butterfly.  I inked the cut a parts with Stampin’ up! Wild wasabi ink.  I attached a Stampin’ up! pink taffeta ribbon for the closure.
On the spine I used Maya Rose white rosette ribbon.
On the inside cover I created a pocket and inserted tags and cut a parts.  The first page has one of the large cut a parts from the 12x12 paper pack.  There is a tag inside the pocket.  I inked the edges with vintage photo.
The second page has some of the G45 paper and a little place to hold tags at the bottom of the page. 
This page is one of Kathy’s designs.  There are two pockets on one page and I inserted some journaling tags and left space for photos.  I inked the edges with vintage photo ink.
This page has an undercut page created from the envelopes.  Inside the pocket is a journal tag.  I inked the edges with Stampin’ up! ink and used the calendar cut out from the paper pack on the front page.
Here is another of Kathy’s designs.  I have inserted tags and journaling inside the pockets. Each page also has a hidden pocket on the edge of the envelope for more pictures.
This page had two mini flaps with pockets inside.  I matted each with some of the tags from the paper and used Stampin’ up! ink.
This is the back inside over with a pocket.  There are journal tags, cut a parts, tags and die cuts included.  I inked everything with Stampin’ up! ink and Vintage Photo.
