Skinny Mini!

Hi everyone! Linda here. I really should have posted this last Friday, but after coming back from holiday with a nasty cold virus I just lost all my mojo at the start of last week. Felt much better at the weekend so I whipped up this.

This was such a fun little project, I found the inspiration for this from Ginger at My Sisters Scrapper and she linked to a tutorial she followed from Papercrafter 45 and that's what I mostly followed to make this. However the original mini measured 8.5 inches long and I really wanted to use up some of my 6 x 6 papers, so I adjusted the length. So I guess it's a short skinny mini :)

One thing I really loved about this project is that it doesn't use chipboard. I like chipboard but I hate wrapping it, plus not everyone has chipboard to hand or wants to buy it just to try a project, so this is a nice one to try because you can just use the kind of stuff you use on your cards.

Anyway, this is what it turned out like.





It's really difficult to photograph these, so I made a short video to show you the pages a little better.

If you want to see the video and find a link to a tutorial on how to make this just visit my blog

I used Miss Teagen Sue from Bazill Basics. I've had this collection for a while and I've made a couple of cards with it so I really wanted to use it up. This project was perfect for that as it doesn't take as much as a regular mini album.  I was a little short on pages though, so I did supplement with half a 12 x 12 page of Bo Bunny Double Dot paper, but as I say I had already made 2 cards with the pack previously.

If you wanted to you could make this mini with A4 card, but you would need to cut the measurements for the width down by a smidge, (a bit more complicated then cutting the length down due to all the folds and the scoring) but I used A3 card so was able to do the full width.

I edged everything with Walnut Stain distress ink.


That's all from me today but I hope you feel inspired to make one of these yourself, they really are tons of fun.
