Day 1 of 13 Days of Halloween Mini Album Tutorial


Hello friends and crafty peeps! I’m so excited to be sharing the first project in our 13 Days of Halloween tutorial series on our YouTube channel!

This mini album is created with the Masquerade collection from Authentique Papers.

The base is a bit of a hybrid of elements from different mini’s we’ve shared in previous tutorials.

The cover has layers of the gorgeous patterned papers, festive holiday embellishments, and made by me flowers. The trims are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I can not resist a bold check!

I had so much fun combining the patterned papers. They all work so well together you can’t go wrong.

The pockets and tuck spots have large inserts for pictures and journaling as well as the spooktacular images from the 3 x 4 cut apart cards.

Adding extra pages really helps to increase the real estate for these little albums. And give you opportunity to add more of the gorgeous paper patterns!

Don’t forget to cover the back sides of the tip ins with the coordinating patterns! This check is my favorite of the whole collection.

I used the same arrangement of the polka dot and plaid to cover the pages that can all be seen together to give it a consistent look. The center page is a top folding full sized tip that’s covered with a crisp white doily, elements from the die cut sheet and a fun little button topped flower.

Remember this is a tri-fold album with extra pages added so I repeated the arrangement I used for the left hand side giving me the chance to incorporate another of the holiday image journal cards for the tip in.

Please join me on my YouTube channel for a full tutorial on this mini…
