Love Sparkles Again

Well, I had scraps leftover from my last mini-album (over 1/2 the kit was left) so I decided to try another mini-album.  This one is the same idea as my boo album posted a few days ago.  It was a design I got from Ustamp Fall 09.  This little book only uses 1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock to create and then you can embellish it any way you'd like.  I used the stickers from the Simply Scrappin' kit.  The kit used here is Love Sparkles (retired) but it would be cute with any of the current kits.

Here's the tutorial so you can make one of your own!!  Please email me if you have any questions, or if you'd like to order any Stampin' Up! products for yourself!

Mini-Album from 1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock

– adapted from Mary-Jane Roussel (SU Demo – France) on UStamp Fall 09


1 -12x12 cardstock of your choice


Your choice for your theme/design


Your choice to coordinate with your cardstock


Paper trimmer with scoring blade

SNAIL adhesive

Bone Folder

Other embellishments as desired

Trim 2” off the bottom of your cardstock; cut the 2” piece into (2) pieces 2 x 5 ¾". Score your cardstock at 6” along the 12” side and at 4” along the 10” side. Fold on all score lines. Cut out the bottom 4 x 6” piece and save for later use. If desired, random stamp the album base and all cut pieces to decorate. ( see 1st photo below).

Fold up bottom 4 x 6” piece on the Right side of the album. Adhere with SNAIL, buttons, brads etc. Score each of the 2 x 5 ¾’ pieces at ¼ “along the long side. Fasten these pieces to the Left side of the album, near the bottom, using SNAIL, brads, etc., as desired.  (See 2nd photo below).

Mat the remaining 4 x 6” piece (I trimmed mine slightly) on coordinating DSP or cardstock and insert into the pocket of the Right side of the album. Decorate the front and remaining “pages” of the album as desired.   (See 3rd photo below).
