Master Detective Mini Album

By Katelyn Grosart

 

“Using only a 12x12 Patterned Paper Pad from Master Detective and the Washi Tape Set and Mixed Medium Album from the Staples Collection, I was able to create this masculine Master Detective Mini Album. Creating this mini album was an absolute blast and it will be perfect to give as a gift this Christmas. I hope that you'll enjoy some of the up close photos of the Master Detective Mini Album as well as a few tips and tricks.

 

 

 

 

Tip: There are lots of cardstock pages and vellum pages in the mixed media album, so use them for some of your photo mats.

 

 

Tip: Use the Washi Tape to decorate the top and bottom of some of your vellum pages.

Winter Wonderland Album

By Kathy Clement

 

“There’s something magical about snow at Christmas!  The Winter Wonderland collection takes me back to the New England Christmases of my childhood with glistening snow on tree branches, winter birds and dazzling natural beauty.  I love this collection with its Farmhouse Christmas vibe and rich vintage colors and patterns.

 

It was so much fun to use the 12x12 Winter Wonderland paper collection, an Ivory Mixed Media Album and Graphic 45 Washi Tape in the December Craft Basket Challenge.

 

 

 

 


With Christmas right on our doorstep, I decided to make a December Daily album.  To keep things simple, I divided the month up into 4 weekly sections with lots of room for photos, recipes, and journaling in each.  

 

 

I created an accordion style pocket inside the front cover and filled it with decorated Staples Standard Black tags.  Use these to dress up cookie plates, gifts or even as photo mounts.  The Winter Wonderland paper really pops off the black background!

 

Tip: Create quick and easy border accents with Graphic 45 Staples Washi Tape.  Not only does the tape look great, it helps to reinforce the hole punches in the album.  Add the tape to one side of the page, then re-punch the holes.  Then flip over and repeat.  This way you don’t lose track of where the holes are.

 

 

Each week starts with a decorative vellum signature page that is also a pocket.

 

 

 

Tip:  Stitch or glue  two vellum pages together leaving the right hand side open to form side pocket pages.  Then trim the kraft cardstock pages to measure 5” x 7” so they will fit inside the pockets.  These are a great spot for larger photos or even recipes that you use during the holidays.

 

 

The tabbed pocket pages hold photo mounts created with 4” x 6” images from Winter Wonderland.  I’ve added fun little flip elements, waterfall feature, decorated tags and other fun goodies in these wonderful pockets.  

 

Tip: For these pocket pages, cut your designer paper to measure 6” x 6” for the top portion.  The pocket paper will measure 6” x 3”.  If you cut all the papers for these pages at the same time, the album will go together much faster.

 

 

Tip: Staples Square Black Tags make wonderful photo mounts.  Decorate simply with a small border strip and tuck into pockets.  

 

 

I’ve included decorated ivory pages to hold really large photos.

 

 

There’s a large pocket on the back inside cover with a special surprise!  Red Alphabet Banner Tags are backed with gold paper and decorated with cute chipboard embellishments, ribbons and flowers.  The tags spell out the word NOEL and can be hung from ribbon or string to create a banner.  

 

 

I hope you’ll join me for this YouTube video tour of the album.  I’ll share tips and tricks that you can use to make your own Winter Wonderland December Daily.” ~Kathy

Dolce Vita Album

By Nico Scrap

 

“I am proud to be Italian. I love italy and the idea that other country have about Italy, a place where everybody live their “Dolce vita”, with high fashion dresses, all that baroque architecture and fancy living. I love how american pronounce italian words, i love how they live their holidays in our cities like Rome or Venice and i love the idea they have about our passionate love. And listening to old italian songs and thinking about Dolce and Gabbana dresses i’ve made this album to keep all the photos i’ve mad all over Italy.” ~Nico

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: urgentspellcast@gmail.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109

WOW! once again. These albums are great! I particularly like the first challenge with just the paper, album and washi tape. It shows up the paper without a lot of distraction. Then the mixed media album...gorgeous with lots to look at and see! I would love to have seen even more of the la dolce vita album. It looks absolutely charming.

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on joylovespell@gmail.com. because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
