12x12 Mini Album

I actually went to Joann's Craft Store yesterday.  I've been here a month and it's the first time I've been to the craft store!

I got a beautiful stack of paper.  DCWV Indian Summer Fall Stack 180 sheets reg $20 on sale $8.  I also got a DCWV little mat stack in Neutrals 87 sheets that's 3.875" x 3.875".  I haven't seen one this size before.  It's textured and colored on both sides.

I thought I'd try making one of the 12x12 mini albums and using this mat stack for the cover. 

Using the little mat stack for the cover is a little larger than I would like, but doable if you don't want to cut and are in a hurry.  I rounded the edges of the album only on the opening side.  I added a little burgandy birdie charm to the ribbon on the spine, and threw some fall stickers on the cover.  It's simple on the outside, and the inside is GORGEOUS!  I love that Indian Summer paper!!


  1. This is so cute Janis and the pp inside is gorgeous! So glad you got to go to Joann's! What do you and Bonnie do while Tom is hiking on the weekend? He's a real outdoorsman, isn't he? I'd never last in Alaska...I'm an indoor girl who likes her creature heat, lol! You're so fearless and adventurous!
    Have fun!
    Hugs to you and sweet Bonnie,
