How to Construct the November Mini Album by Angel Rodrigue

Have you seen the beautiful mini album that Design Team member Angel Rodrigue created with our November Album kit?  She's on the blog today to share how she made it!


This is how I constructed this Mini album.. I used this Idea for construction from Anna on you tube and made the rest my own.. This was done with My Creative Scrapbook November Album Kit.

chipboard , magnets, red tape, priority envelope, and white cardstock.

First you will need 3 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock for you base pages cut at 8 3/4 x 12.
on the 8 3/4 side you will score at 1/2 inch 4 5/8 inch and 4 3/4 inch.
Turn cardstock over and score at 6 inches.
Below will show you the cut areas. cut where you see dotted lines.

 Then fold where you have scored and should look like this..

I have added white electrical tape to the binding side for reinforcements..

After all 3 pages are folded you add red tape to all flaps where you added the electric tape. This is your spine of the album. it should look like this. you attach one flap to the other to attach the pages together..

Then you should be left with this..This will be attached to the spine of your cover.

To make the cover you should cut 2 pieces of of medium weight chipboard at 7 x 4 1/2 and spine one at 7 2 1/2 .

Then I used priority mail enveloped to help with the hinges this make it stronger. I adhered 2  x 7 inch pieces to both front and back with red strong tape. Just stick all your pieces in the order they need to be as shown below and add you strips..

Then add tape all around to cover you cover. You can use whatever paper you want or cardstock. All you do is cover your album with paper. then you will add your book above to the spine of the cover. then you off to decorate the inside of your album. (You may like to decorate your album before attaching to the cover spine. That is up to you how you want to do that part)

Then you will make the flaps that will fit in your album pages.. Cut 6 4 x 12 pieces and score at 6 inches.These will go in each page back and front of the 3 pockets..

I have added magnets to mine before add pattern paper so it can stay close.. This is optional i just like the way it hold things together..
Below is the pages open and i show you where I added magnets...

I also made my own tags and added them( as you see in my finish photo) to each pocket as well..

Hope I explained right and you can follow along to make your own mini..

Dimensional Paper Pieced Pumpkin Embellishments by Tracy McLennon

Design Team member Tracy McLennon is featuring our November Main Kit today with instructions for how to make your own sweet little pumpkin embellishments.


Today I thought I would share a quick and easy way to create these super CUTE little pumpkins for your next fall layout or other fall project.

This is such a great way to mix all of the different patterned papers that are included in this month's fabulous Main kit. You need 5 oval pieces for each pumpkin, one pattern in the middle and then 2 other pairs of patterns. I used a 1.25”x2” oval punch for my pumpkins.

I created my pumpkins on a layered square piece of cardstock. Place your base ovals first, glueing them onto the cardstock. The next pair of ovals are adhered using 3D foam tape. Then again for the last oval, I used 3D foam tape again. I hand cut the stem and leaves from coordinating cardstock and placed them afterwards. Simple as that, and you have an adorable embellishment!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope that this simple tutorial has gotten your creative juices flowing!


Check out these other beautiful creations that Tracy designed with the Main kit!

How to Create a Rosette Turkey by Christine Meyer

I have seen these cute paper crafted rosette turkeys floating around and decided to try my own hand at creating one using my Main Kit from this month.  Christine joining today with a quick turkey tutorial!

Here's the details on how you too can make one!

Cut out three patterned paper strips.  One should be 1.5" X 12", one should be 1.25" X 12", and the last should be 1" X 12".  

Score lines on it each strip every 1/4 or 1/2 inch.  I did 1/2 inch to make the rosette a little less full.  Fold and secure it into a rosette - adding a punched circle to the front and back that coordinates.

Use the turkey sticker to trace a turkey head and body.  Cut it out and fold a small piece over so you can attach it to the body.

Layer the rosettes and turkey head together with a strong adhesive like hot glue.  Allow to dry.  It will stand up pretty well on its own but if you want it to be more stable you can hot glue it to a circle on the bottom.


Here are more projects that Christine created with our Main kit!
