Through September and on into October I have been creating videos on how to make mini album tags for the newest batch of creative people coming in. I used to be one of them. Searching for answers to my burning questions and not finding much in the way of an answer.
As in life, one thing leads to another. For new card makers that don’t have a lick of interest in ever making mini albums, but need to be inspired to create a greeting card, I thought it would be good to show how a mini album tag can be made into a card front.
I chose to use one of the Measured and Layered tags with a pocket as my inspiration for the card front.
I have some old….circa 2009….Stampin’ Up! stamp sets which are Christmas themed. Serene Snowflakes, Delightful Decorations, and Big on Christmas. These are no longer available at Stampin’ Up! but if you have them in your stash of stamps you can give this a try.
This is what I came up with using the mini album tag format and converting it into a Christmas card with a little gift of tags tucked into the front pocket.
I will have the tutorial on making these cards up on YouTube Friday – October 9, 2015.
