Ink Stamp Share Special Blog Hop: Anything Goes

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am taking part in the Ink. Stamp. Share blog hop and the theme is Anything Goes!  If you have joined me from Jo then welcome, I am Gez (Nigezza) and I am a UK Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I am thrilled you have come for a visit. Today I have made a mini album for you using the lovely DSP Woven Threads. I got this paper free during Sale-A-Bration and it was my intention to make a mini album or a journal with it. I did a journal not so long ago so decided to make a mini album with it.  I am really happy with how it turned out. Very straight forward to make so why not give it ago after you have hopped around the blog hop of course. .

Measurements and Materials


  • Each page is 10" x 7"
    • Score on long side @ 5"
  • Pockets are made from the 2"x7" cut off from the sheet of ``DSP
    • Can make pocked from the 5" x 12" cut off if you prefer
    • In the original album I made pockets 2 1/2" x 5"
    • I alternated the pockets so had 2 like this and 2 that were 2" x 7"
    • 3 hidden pockets were made by putting glue on 3 sides of each sheet when adhering together
  • Photo Mats
    • For each page I made large mats 6 1/4" x 4 1/4"
    • This would allow them to have full size 6"x4" photos
    • The 3 that were in the hidden page pockets were each 1/4 of a full sheet
    • I used the Circle Tab punch to make pulls for these photo mats
  • Decorating the pocket edge and photo mats
    • I used the Decorative Ribbon Punch for this, using Whisper White for the pockets and Rocco Rose for the mats
  • Mini Album Cover in Whisper White 7 1/4" x 10 3/4"
    • Score on long side @ 5 1/4" & 5 1/2" 
  • Front cover was decorated 
    • Seaside Spray Mat 5" x 7"
    • DSP Mat 4 3/4" x 6 3/4"
    • Sentiment stamp on Whisper White and die cut with stitched rectangle
    • Ornate layer die cut from Seaside Spray 
  • Back cover was just 5"x7" DSP
  • Crinkle Seam binding used to fasten the album
    • Stick under the back DSP mat and have it loose in the front so a nice bow can be tied 

Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)
