Today I am sharing with you my Spooky Night Mini Album that I did on Tuesday Night during my Facebook Live Free Mini Class. I wanted to showcase some of the new products that will be coming out September 1, 2017. My friend and fellow demonstrator showed us how to do this type of album at a downline meeting. She had said she was excited to see what I came up with to change it up and try to make it a little quicker to do. That was a couple month’s back so I sat down and played with it the other night and wanted to come up with something using the New Halloween suite in the upcoming catalog. I love Halloween! It’s one of my favorite holidays during the year, I always loved dressing up as a kid and even some years we created our own costumes instead of wearing store bought ones. I wished I had some pictures from that time as a kid to place in this little memory album. Here’s a look at today’s project.
Sizes & Dimensions:
Here’s a list of the sizes of the paper and cardstocks that you will need to create this cute little carry anywhere album. Numbers inside () is the quantity needed.
- Basic Black Cardstock (4) 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Pumpkin Pie Cardstock (4) 5 1/4″ x 4″
- Very Vanilla Cardstock (3 to 4) 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (7) 5 1/4″ x 4 some of these will be cut down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ (depending on where you place them in the album.
- Spooky Night Designer Series Paper 5 3/4″ x 12″
- Spooky Night Designer Series Paper 1″ x 12″
Tips & Tricks:
When putting the album together you have to be careful with the adhesive when putting the envelopes together. I saw a trick by a fellow demonstrator after I posted the Video on Tuesday. If you take a piece of parchment paper and put it over the adhesive you can place the envelope flaps where they need to go. When they are in place you can then pull off the parchment paper and attach them together.
Once you have the envelopes put together (the number of envelopes will depend on how thick you want the album) you will place the cardstock into place. Some of the cardstock will have designer series paper on top, so you will cut the designer series paper down. Place these on the envelopes. On the other cardstock you will place the very vanilla cardstock. These pieces will be your card inserts they will be your journal pages. I place a Designer series paper on the opposite page of the insert or the opposite side where the pictures will go.

Once everything was put together I added a little stamping to the album. I just went through and picked where I wanted or needed to add a little extra something something.
I added some of the Vintage Crochet Trim to the back of the stamped element on this page to add a little bit more of the basic black.
To finish off the album I stamped the cat image from the stamp set using basic black and used the cat punch and punched it out. I added the cat to the belly band with two stampin’ dimensionals. The picture below shows all the elements used in the card.
