Typeset Mini Album

Here is another mini album which I made using a True Fit File Folio as the base. I scored
it at 6 inches in each direction then opened it out so that it was 24x12 then folded up the bottom half - 
thus making a 24x6 piece which I think concertina folded to make this.
I used the Typeset Workshop on the Go to decorate it and added some of
the Silver Glitz Gel glue for even more sparkle :O)
I am going to give the main pieces - you can decorate it however you like :O)

So that's it folks - hope you like it as much as I do - I was thrilled how it turned out :O)


  1. I do love it - and I think you are the QUEEN of mini albums!!

  2. Hahaha - Thanks Brenda - you know - I really like that title - maybe I should change the name of my blog - anyway - just WAIT till you see what I did with Sonoma - my ladies loved that :O)

  3. Stunning! I have one more True Fit Folio piece that I'm going to have to try this with. Question: Does it open up accordion style? Or is it bound and open up book sytle? Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  4. Lisa it is folded accordion style then I attached the spine so that it is like a book with one very fat middle page = which houses the 3 tags - one the 2nd and 3rd sections and one between the 2nd and 3rd. hope that makes some sort of sense :O)

  5. Well, lucky for me I don't have to have an original thought! I can just CASE your extraordinary talent! Hope mine is a fraction as lovely!

  6. Extraordinary is right! WOW, I only wish I had half the talent/ideas that you have. Thanks for the inspiration. I need to visit your blog more often to stay inspired. Thank you soooo much. P.S. I should be busy making my holiday pies but would rather browse your site. :)

  7. Thanks for sharing Sara! Beautiful, as always!

  8. This is amazing!!! I must give this a try. Thanks for sharing the instructions and cutting dimensions. You are awesome!
