Through the window ... | Céline Erbetta

Through the window ... | Céline Erbetta

Hello there ! Nice to see you with a new Pinkfresh design !

Today, I take you in my daily life, in my Home Sweet Home, with its simple little moments that we live every day. It's the Some Days collection that inspired me this mini.... Are you coming ?

I love to make this album very small because you don't need more than a 30X30 sheet to create it !

I chose the This Week sheet because I love this blue and its big flowers ! Ideal to bring out the shades of gray in my photos. I cut out a rectangle of 9 inches by 9 3/4 inches. On my marking board, I drew folds at 3, 3 ½ , 6 ½ and 6 ¾ . Then on the width, at 3, 6 and 6 ¼ : for this last fold, mark only up to the 1st cross fold. Then, on the opposite width, draw an identical line at 64 ¼ , only up to the first cross line:

Then remove the superfluous parts:

Your structure is ready ! Time to decorate !

For the cover, I used the Shaker Tags cutting die set. I chose the one representing a window, the one of my house! 😉 Yes I know, another shaker box ! But what do you want, I love these Jewel Mix crystals 😉

On the embellishment side, I've been digging into ephemera and matching puffy stickers ! You maybe have seen this coffee machine and pyjamas that I absolutely wanted to use for this mini in an of my Instagram stories ! 😉

I've kept a page for text, to help my memory in a few years to remember those simple bits of my life ...

Beautiful day to all!

Lovely finished product, but these directions do not provide sufficient detail at all. Perhaps someone with lots of experience making these types of mini albums can figure this out, but I’ve wasted two sheets of paper now and give up. How do you fold this up? How did you make the window design on the front (a die?)? How do you close this? Why all the spine style scores? They don’t all seem to be needed
