Daily Special - Tutorial Day - Mini Accordion Album


Hey Everyone. Finally a post on this side. Today's Daily Special is "Tutorial Day" Yay! I'm happy that I finally created a tutorial which I haven't done for a while. Today's tutorial is "Mini Accordion Album". It's a really easy project.
Where have I been the last few days? I've been posting on my other blog site Card Inspired. . .I created 2 of these mini accordion albums on that side too so check it out if you have the time.



I had a lot of fun creating these mini albums because gosh, they're so easy to make. I kept the design of my album simple because I didn't want it to be too bulky.
I stamped the 4x4" chipboards (coasters) using Bodacious Bouquet stamp set. I used Pretty in Pink and Green Galore ink, added the Palette O' Print designer papers and stamped the flowers out. I then cut the images out and adhered them to the album. I added rhinestones to add a little bling. That's it to the design.


The theme of my album is our trip to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2002. We had a lot of fun on this trip. . .the Big Island is very big . . .well, compared to the other islands of Hawaii so there's a lot of things to do. It's a nice island to take long drives.
The "Bodacious Bouquet" stamp set is a great set because of the "tropical" looking flowers which matches the theme of my mini album. It's actually one of my favorite "floral" stamp sets that Stampin Up has.


I'm leaving for San Francisco tomorrow. I can't wait. I love San Francisco. It's such a fun city. I won't be bringing my crafting stuff on this trip because the flight to SF isn't too long. Besides, there's too many things to do in SF and I don't think I'll have the time to sit down and actually make any cards. I will be bringing my camera and laptop so I'll be posting pictures of our vacation.
If I have the time, I'll post something tomorrow but if I don't, hope to see ya' folks when I return next week!!
