We shall be creating ACCORDIAN MINI ALBUMS .  Size will be 5"x5"  with inside pages of 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" .   Covers need to be created with Chipboard bases and covered with coordinating cardstock.  There needs to be some type of CLOSURE for the album - either a ribbon tie, Belly band, Magnetic flaps, or whatever you want to make.

You will check with your partner to see what theme she would like -   Family, Babies, Weddings, Memories, Friendship, Party , Vacations, etc...

Embellishments are required, but please do not embellish so heavily that the album cannot be closed properly or carried easily.

Choices of papers and embellishments are all up to the creator !!  

I would like them to be completed by February 28th and I will give you a few extra days to mail them out if you need it...no later than March 7th... but try to get done on time.  bounce  bounce  bounce

Once we get everyone signed up, I will assign partners  by February 2nd.  flower  flower


MEMBER LIST :

1. Barb & Lynn
2. Carol & Laurie

SPRINGTIME MINI ALBUMS - CLOSED & Partnered !  Due by 3/7  Empty ACCORDIAN ALBUM - 5"x5"

Post by AdminBarb on Fri Dec 14, 2018 7:06 pm


Make this simple accordion album from 12"x12" cardstock as your "base" (please use heavyweight cardstock)  ..... When it is completed the final mini album will be have 8 inner pages ...   It will measure 4 1/2 "x4 1/2" without covers and approx 5" with the front and back cover.

I have found that these little mini albums are great for getting rid of my scrap pieces of patterned paper left over from making my larger mini  books. They are also great to add to the inner pages of my other mini albums to hold extra photos or to hide my journaling. Try sticking one to your 12"x12" layouts as well for a neat touch.

Gift Idea
Because they are so quick and easy to make you can make a few albums to give away as  presents - 6 pages is great for a few family pictures taken over the year. Maybe you can make 6 or so birth announcement card albums for your closest friends and family with pictures and birth information of the newest addition to your family.

The covers are made with CHIPBOARDS  .  Cover them with pretty paper and embellish.  Be sure to attach some type of ribbon or twine ties to close the book, or create a " Belly Band"  for it.  Or some other type of closure.

I will post instructions soon for those who need them, or there are many of these to be found on PINTEREST and YOUTUBE.  

You will make one album for your partner in a theme that she would like.... but the choice of papers and embellishments is all up to you !!

Okay girls - we have a small group, but that's okay - we will keep trying to get people to be interested in actually participating !

Lynn, you and I are partners for this one - Do you have a preferred THEME, or Colors you would like to have ? I enjoy making these so much ! I would like to have a Grandma's "Brag Book " for my purse to put my Grand-daughters pictures in... Does not have to be all in PINK.... we like all sorts of things... and are planning on a Disney trip soon .

Great! I would like a Grandma book as well. We had the gender reveal for my first grandchild today.
ITS A GIRL! Doesn’t have to be all pink as well. Not picky at all!

Hi Laura, So happy to be partnered with you for this swap, Please let me know what “theme” you would like, colors, a particular style, just everything you would like this album to be. That said, no promises, I will try to live up to your desires. For me, I think I would like an album to put scrapbooking friends pics in. Love all colors, can be bright if you like, only color not excited about is blue. However if it works in album/other colors or design, no problem. Also, do you prefer Laura or Laurie?

Hi , Carol . Legally its Laura but friends and family call me Laurie. I am good for anything. Really just not Baby. I don't like neon colors except when called for ( Like hunting ). I am not sure what I want to use it for yet. we have labradors. one Daughter swims and is a big drawer, one son just made the pole vault teamed is into gaming, other son is a policeman , is getting into frisbee golf and is a newly wed. Other daughter is in college is into theater ( costuming and props). Daughter in law is a teacher, 2nd grade. We all go to church together so religious is okay. Husband is into competitive shooting. We like to have family BBQ's. Really it is up to you

Hellooooo Laurie,

Mailed your album Thur. PM, due to arrive Monday. USPS Tracking #: 9500 1152 6278 9059 3653 59

Hope it’s not too vintage for you. Had so much fun making it, going to make some more in the same theme, different papers, for gifts. Raining here in Southern Calif. and suppose to rain most of next week. We surely need the rain only concern is for people who live in the fire zones. Hope your weather is better. I’m more of a “sunshine” gal.

Laurie, Laurie, Laurie, I received my beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, “tea” album yesterday. I just love, love, love it!!! Did I say I LOVE? Would you mind sharing where you found the papers? Haven’t seen these before. Thank You so very much! I will post pics next week. Sorry to sound like a broken record only couldn’t help myself.
