Waterfall Fun

A while back someone had posted this amazing mini album in one of my Facebook groups and I thought to myself now that’s just amazing! Before I knew it I was introduced to a YouTube channel called my sisters scrapper and this has become my little slice of heaven.

I love all the tutorials that are available on her channel and I have tried two of them so far. The first one was a mini pocket page album and the second one was the waterfall folio.

Of course with Halloween being right around the corner and the new challenge up on Take Heart Ideas, I just knew that this was what I was going to make.

Here is my take on the waterfall folio tutorial. The only difference is that instead of using card stock to create my waterfall I used the amazing Close To My Heart flips flaps! These things are awesome and I thought that they would work perfectly. Not only did they work perfectly but I was able to get 8 of them in the folio.

The other thing that I did differently was using Close To My Heart’s bonding memories glue to adhere the chipboard and the paper together.

This is the first wet glue that I have worked with that not only has a permanent seal but it doesn’t wrinkle the paper when wet and when it dries you can’t even tell that you used a wet glue.

I also used the bonding memories glue and my Xyron maker to put


my Cricut image together. I seriously will never know how I used to live without my Xyron.

Now I put together a little walk through video of my folio but of course you can hear my kids in the background some!

Fun Interactive Mini Album Incorporations

Well hello there and welcome to my little home on the net. If this is your first time here, welcome have a look around and learn all about how to get those photos off of your phones and into albums quickly and easily. I hope you have been enjoying the hop so far, you should have come from Melissa over at Digital Scrapbooking HQ where you learned all about how to create a layout.

Today my post post is all about a cute little mini album that I have created with one sheet of paper. I will not take credit for this idea but I will definitely share the video with you for this adorable little mini album that I found on YouTube. When I saw this tutorial I thought it would be perfect for Halloween since it is one of my favorite holidays to scrap and I always have tons of photos. I love the colors, I love the photos and I love the embellishments. Now that I am with Close To My Heart I also love the stamps that they have.

Ok enough about how awesome it is to scrap Halloween. I made this cute little mini album with the Scaredy Cat paper line, which I must share with you out of the whole paper pack their are only two pieces of paper that have to be used only for scrapping Halloween, all the other paper is Halloween colors but it is generic enough for you to use for anything.

Scaredy Cat Paper Pack

For this mini album I used the Halloween one and created this adorable mini album following the instructions in the video posted above. I think this is a great way to incorporate an interactive element to your project life pages or to a regular scrapbook page. I also think these little one page mini albums are perfect for my little one to use when she wants to scrap with me or if you want a quick and easy little gift that you can give to someone.

I also used the Scaredy Cat Complements and assortment to finish up my mini album and layout. Lastly I stamped these adorable little Halloween figures. Some I heat embossed and some I colored with copics and others I just left as is! I used the Frightfully Fun Stamp set for this which I then fussy cut out! Now we are all ready for our Halloween photos which let me say thanks to project life all my photos are currently printed and in my album! This is a feat that I have never accompolished before, so I am very pleased with my decision to incorporate pocket page scrapping into my life. This little mini album fits perfectly into a 4×6 pocket page as well all you have to do is stick in the last page into the pocket and leave the rest hanging out of pocket.
