Mini Album Workshop TO GO!

Good morning everyone! Well I got all of my supplies in the mail yesterday and put the Mini Album Kits together using Veranda Paper and the My Creations All-Sorts Mini Album. These are getting sent out to those who ordered today but its not too late to order your own! You can order this as a PRECUT kit or UNFURNISHED kit. The difference between the two is that the PRECUT is ready for you to put together, and the unfurnished is not. The unfurnished allows you to decide how you want the papers put together, or you can use the cutting guide and instructions.

Pre Cut Supplies:
All Sorts Mini Album
Pre-Cut Veranda Paper
Veranda Paper Flowers
Assortment of Embellishments
3 binder rings
Cutting Guide for Future Reference

You can purchase it by clicking the button below! PLEASE inform me if you want it PRECUT or not in the Comments Section of PAYPAL. If you would like to order by Credit Card, please email me at

Purse Album Tutorial

You know you are having a good day when you actually finish a project without taking a break! I made this adorable flap note purse with some of the BEST CTMH products and I am showing you how!

The first step to creating this fabulous purse is going to be to cut your colored cardstock 6x12 inches. Then, you are going to score at 4, 6, and 8 inches. Fold to make a crinkle as shown above.

Next, you are going to take coordinating cardstock and decorate the inside contents. I like to keep the papers simple and matching.

 With some fun stamping and distressing, you can decorate the inside as you please. Then, with the Top Notes die cut, you can create the flap of your purse.

You can attach some ribbon to the back of it to make it look more like a purse and maybe some velcro to the inside to have the flap stay.

Write your note in the inside and you got a darn cute gift! You could even use it as a super mini album!
