Mini-Album Made with One 12 x 12 Sheet of Paper

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope your weekend was fantastic.  Mine was busy!  On Saturday my youngest son and I were priviledged to participate in the annual "Rake Up Boise" event.  (And I have the sore muscles to prove it this morning.)  Afterwards, we spent the day with 2 of my sons and their wives.  Which also means, I was able to hug on that little grandbaby of mine!  The perfect day really!

Today I want to share with you a very cool project (I think).  While I love to make cards, and consider myself mediocre at scrapbooking, I DO love to learn and explore other things that can be created without having to have tons of expensive new tools (although I love having those tools!).  I discovered this simple and creative project while watching youtube videos awhile ago and thought I would share with you how it's done.  You may remember seeing it included in the Pink Blog hop I was recently involved with.

Before I get started I want to preface this tutorial by mentioning that all the papers and embellishments I used can be purchased over at Paper Patch Crafts.  The new Christmas Delight papers by Little Yellow Bicycle are what I used to put this fun little album together.  I recommend checking her store out and browsing through the fun items she has for sale. :)

Here are a couple close up images of the mini album, and then afterwards I put together a video demonstrating a more detailed look at all the pages of the album and of course, a tutorial on how to build one for yourself.  I hope you enjoy!

And here is the video!
