 Make A Splash Keepsake Album

Tutorial by Linda Roos


“Hi! It’s time for a brand new album tutorial for you all! 

I was thinking why not make an album for not just photos to keep, I wanted to add a box for keepsakes. This album contains two mini albums, that you can easily fit 20 photos in each and a box for other stuff that we collect.  

For example make it into a baby album, lots of photos of the first year and in the box you can put the bracelets you get from the hospital, some hair, their teeth. Or make it into a wedding album and put some decorations from the wedding that you want to collect, or why not a travel album and collect shells, sand or some receipt from that special restaurant. The imagination is endless just to make it happen. 

 Both the big album and the two smaller ones are made the same way, the cover is made in cardstock and after that I decorate the outside with a chipboard to make it more stable. 

Here comes a walkthrough and tutorial video.
