Stampin' Up!® Garden Impressions Mini Album Part 1 and 2: The construction and decoration

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator


Hi and thank you for joining me today. This project is split into 3 parts. I have created a mini album that will hold full size photos and use 6"x6" paper without the need for trimming. I have used the simple stack hinge system so all abilities should be able to complete this album fairly quickly. Part 1 is the constructions of the album. Part 2 is the decoration and Part 3 is a 'step up' where I have created extra interactive sections, pockets, journalling mats, tags, photo mats etc. It is up to you how much you want to do with this album.

I hope you liked this Mini Album and give it a try. I have tried t make this design straight forward and fairly quick to assemble. The next stage adds a bit more 'wow' to the album and its up to you if you add them or not. Part 3 will be coming soon, I have had to take a small break as I have small people visiting and need to go to the seaside every day! lol

Happy crafting

Gez xx
