Mini Album Box Tutorial

My tutorial this week is really just a peep into my scrapbooking world.
I try to make our Grandsons a handmade gift every year,
usually in some form of memory keeping.

This year I decided to make one of my double mini albums.
They come in this little box with a divide in the centre,
giving space for a book for each child.

The books hold about ten photos and you can add pockets
or extra pages if you want to bump it out.
I will fill it with special memories they make during December.

You can watch part 1 of my video here

Down on the farm!

It's Michele's turn to choose the theme over at

We had a quick scoot to the other side of Belfast and back
this morning as our daughter had to pick up some equipment
for her new job.
She is now a Concept Designer for Paper Owl and will be
designing for a programme appearing on CBeebies!!
So proud of her. She has spent the last seven years in a job she hates
but kept working away on her art in the evenings.
Paid her dues for sure and  we are so proud!

More little words!

It's the second week of my challenge theme
over at

I again used a piece of the Beary Christmas paper
for my background. I did stamp some snowflakes
and add some little pop dots to enhance it a little.
One tree got a star!
The sentiment was stamped using Beary Cute and cut then layered onto
night of navy card and I finished with another cut paper tassel.

Quick and easy!!

Getting ready for Santa!

This is my midway post for
where the option theme is getting ready for Christmas.

We have two lovely prizes up for grabs so be sure and join us!

I have made a twisted easel card this time,
using the Gift of Giving stamp set.
The images has been coloured using my blends.

I love how it folds flat for posting but looks pretty neat when displayed.

I do have a video tutorial for this card free with my newsletter, and I show you how
to get two tags from your cut offs, so bonus!!

I would like to enter this into

Have a lovely weekend!
