Super easy to do.

Simply run the die through your die-cutting machine for as many pages as you would like the album to have. This album has 7 pages.

Use Altenew’s Pattern Power stamp set to grudge the pages for a textured look using Altenew’s Black Permanent Ink.

Use We R Memory Keepers Cinch to bind the book together.

Add your photos and done!

Mini Book – Pocket tag

This is my second post for today

If your looking for the Top Dog Dies and Simple Stories post, click here.


Hello everyone!!  I just want to jump in here to talk about this class I’m taking over in the Studio Calico Classroom.

The name of the class is called Mini Album with Maggie Holmes!! I am loving this class.  We are creating eclectic, tag-style mini albums that pack big-time style and design. We are going beyond the basics by learning how to incorporate pockets, envelopes, custom-size page protectors, and more.

I’m having fun.

Take a look at my first page:
