My first digital download for sale!

I decided to create a PDF of instructions for my mini albums!  It took a lot more effort than I thought, but I got it done after 2 weeks.  It is for sale in my Etsy shop!

Here are a few samples of the completed instructions.

Project Life Disney double sided cards made from scraps

I decided to make some Project Life style cards with the ton of Disney leftover pieces I have accumulated...  There are 3 4x6 size and 17 3x4 size cards, and are all double sided.  I used mainly a combination of Simple Stories Say Cheese 1 & 2 and Echo Park Magical papers (plus stickers and embellishments from both lines), and a few other coordinating scraps and embellishments from my stash.  The base cardstock is 4 different colors, black, white, kraft and red.  These are not totally flat, as there are chipboard frames, jewels and other embellishments that are popped up on dimensionals to stand out a little bit, but they are not overly bulky.  All of the frames are glued down with the tops left open so as to enable you to add a tag or photo inside.  Some of them already have a tag inside, but not all.

This first set of 3 is the 3 4x6 sized ones.

Custom Disney Album #3 ***FOR SALE***

This album is for sale in my Etsy Shop!  This post is a bit pic heavy, butt here is so much inside that it can't be shown to the full extent without them!
The cover measures 9 1/2" x 7 1/4" with a 4" spine. The pages are 8 1/2" tall and 6 1/4" wide, so that I could cut in half a 12 x 12 piece for matting and only trim one side of the 8 1/2" x 11" base paper.  I came up with the dimensions to both minimize the trimming of 8 1/2" x 11" paper and the 12 x 2 card stock.  Most of the flaps, tabs, and interior layering pages, etc, are made of the scraps of trimming the pages as well.  I assembled the pages with Scor Tape and Scotch's quick drying liquid adhesive to make sure they are extra strong and durable. The base black cardstock is a heavy 80 lb weight for added strength.  The cover edges that bend have been reinforced with black ribbon to prevent cracking when the album is opened and closed. My next one I will be experimenting with fabric to see how that works as a cover.
I used primarily the Say Cheese I and II collections from Simple Stories, with a few other miscellaneous complimentary papers as well.  
The finished product is pretty bulky, and will no doubt be bulkier still when filled with photos, but I love how it turned out.
