Hi crafty friends. It’s Kristine again and I’m back today to share the second installment of the mini album series. If you’re not familiar with this series, it is a full video tutorial series teaching you how to make a mini album. In the videos, I make the album pages first and then use Stamperia’s Alice in Wonderland collection to decorate them. The videos are broken down into smaller segments so you can craft along a little at a time, or all in one day! For those of you who might have missed Part 1, you can access the blog post here. Also, there is an introduction post and video outlining the supplies I will use in the series. And, don’t forget to head over to the FotoBella online store to pick up all of your Alice in Wonderland papers and embellishments.
Recap of Part 1
Just to give a very brief recap of Part 1, we first constructed the base pages for the mini album. Then, we started constructing the interactive elements for Page 1 front. Once complete, we started using the Alice in Wonderland papers to decorate our album. At the end of the video series, Page 1 front is complete. Now, we are ready to move on to Page 1 back!
Mini Album Series Videos 5 & 6
In video #5, I will show you how to construct the interactive elements for the back of Page 1. We will be making a fun see-through pocket using vellum or acetate. There are several flaps that are interactive and will allow you to place plenty of photos into the mini album.
Next, in video #6, I will begin decorating the interactive elements on the back of Page 1. In keeping with the theme from Page 1 front, there will be fussy cut elements from the paper collection. Personally, I feel that fussy cutting is a fun way to embellish an album, yet keep the pages flat at the same time.
If you’re following along with the series, we now have one entire page set complete. We’re halfway done since there are only going to be two pages in the mini album! However, there are tons of interactive elements and places for photos stuffed into the pages! I hope you will join me in the next segment where we will construct interactive elements for Page 2 front, and then decorate using the Alice in Wonderland papers.
If you’re just tuning into the series now, welcome! Check out the FotoBella online store where you can pick up the Alice in Wonderland collection to make this album. Stay tuned for Part 3!
