Cookbook Flip Album

Thank you all for purchasing the Cookbook album Kit. I was excited to make mine but I never realized that I would love it so much. I am hoping you will love yours just too. Keep in mind that you can laminate any of these items to make them last longer. After you fill in your cards just run them through the laminator, seal them and you can get all kinds of things on them and just wipe it clean. Same with the outside just seal it and then it will last for a long, long time. 

We have also included the link to the PDF file for the cards in case you need more, just print them off. 

Written instructions are listed below as well as photos, and the link to your exclusive video tutorials

Trim out your recipe cards. You can see on the video how I trimmed mine but it is up to you how much or how little you trim off. 

Cut 2 pieces of the brown cardstock to 7x7 inches, these will be your covers for your 6x6 chipboard pieces included in your kits. Draw a line across the bottom and on the left side at the 1/2" mark from the edge, this will give you a good place to lay your chipboard in when glueing, to keep it straight.
Lay your chipboard down and cover with the cardstock. Trim the corners leaving at least 1/8" from the tip of the chipboard to the end of the paper. Fold your cardstock over the chipboard and glue in place. 

Inside mats are cut at 5 7/8x5 7/8 inches cut two and glue in place.

Outside mats are cut at 5 3/4"x5 3/4" cut two and glue in place. 

Cut strips from your brown cardstock that measures 1"x6 1/4" score on each end at 1/4". You will need 4 sheets for each page, two for front and two for back. Glue only on the two folded over scored ends and across one long edge. Leave the other edge open to slide your card into. You can make these various colors if you want to match each page. 

Cut a top strip that is 1 1/2"x5 3/4" score on the short side at 3/4" all the way down. Fold in half and use this piece on the edge where you will be putting your holes for the rings. This will act as a reinforcement. 

I punched my holes at the top, you can have a side flip if you want. For the top I only used two rings. I punched the holes 1 3/4" in from each side and 3/8" down from top. Using my crop-a-dial, on the largest hole I punched these out. I then colored my hole reinforcements brown and placed around the holes. Using these holes as a guide I then place my pages on them and marked my holes on my pages and punched the pages. 

For the front it is up to you how you embellish, but I used just a piece of scrap red paper and cut a strip 1"x5 3/4" and ran across the middle. I then cut a brown piece that matched the browns on my pages 4 1/4x2 1/4 and a white piece that is 4x2. I glued the white piece on the brown and used this as my cover focal point. I used some old thickers I had in my stash to spell out Nana Cookbook, yes I forgot to put my ( 's) but I will add that in later. I also took some of my stickers and added them around, some bling, and the two charms on. 

I tied ribbon on the rings and it is finished for now. I will keep adding pages, and I will most likely seal this so I will not mess it up when I cook, since I get things everywhere when I am in the kitchen. lol.

Thanks so much and enjoy, E

Camera Box with Mini Album

Quick and easy gift idea is this camera box with a mini album inside. I have the tutorial up for the box and tomorrow we will make the little mini and put inside.

Box measurements:

Cardstock that is 11 1/8"x8 1/4" score on the long side at 4 3/4", 6 3/8" turn one turn and score at 1" and 7 1/4".

Design paper is cut at 5 7/8"x4 3/8" need 2 front and back
Design paper is cut at 4 3/8"x1 1/4" need 2 sides

Cut in on the center score lines just to the horizontal score line and wedge out, glue the little flap up and the sides together. Creating your box bottom. 

Box Lid:

Cardstock that is 9 3/8"x4 3/4" score on the long side at 1 1/2, 7 7/8" turn and score at 1 1/2"x 3 1/4"
Design paper for mats are cut as follows;
6"x1 3/8" for top
6"x1 1/8" cut 2
1 1/2x1 1/8 cut 2

For the little lens I used a paper towel roll and cut a piece that is 1". I then cut a circle that was 2 1/2" and 3 that were 1 3/4". Glue the 3 smaller ones together and place in the center of the large one. 
This piece will go on the bottom of the paper towel circle. You will need to cut slits in the edges so it will fold up and glue to the sides of the paper towel circle. This will create your base.
To create the top or lens part you will need another circle that is 2 1/5" and you need to cut out the center part at the 1 1/5" mark. So if you have another circle punch that is 1 1/5" then just use it and punch out the middle. Take a piece of acetate that is a little larger than the opening and glue on the inside. Cut you slits in this piece as well and glue it on the other end of the paper towel circle creating your lens. If you want to put something inside this little lens you could and it would be beautiful.  

For the circles on the top I used a 1" circle punch and just punched out quite a few and glued them together making a stack. Do the same with the small circles, those are 3/8" circles. This will make your buttons for the top. 

For the little part on the top front I used a piece of paper that was 1/2"x12" and scored every 1" forming an accordion. Cut a piece of acetate and put on the front making it look like the little view finder. Glue the folds together and place on the front. Glue you bling where ever you like. Put your little ribbon handle on the end and it is finished. 

Mini Album

Cardstock cut at 12x4 1/2" score at 5 1/2" turn 180 and score at 5 1/2". 
Page two cardstock 11 3/4"x4 1/2" score at 5 1/2" on each end as above.
Page three cardstock 11 1/2"x4 1/2" score at 5 1/2 on each end as above.
Final page cardstock 11 1/4"x 4 1/2" score at 5 1/2 on each end as above.

Mats for your pages are 4 1/4x5 1/4 you will need 16 of these.

Glue the pages together at the spine in the order shown above and on the video, embellish and you are finished.

New Style Mini Album With Flips, Flaps and Pockets

A full tutorial is uploading on our YouTube channel now. It is a little long than usual but well worth the watch. This mini is adorable and easy and quick to put together. All product used is listed under the video in the show more section. I love this paper!!

Here are the measurements: 

Chipboard pieces 2 1/2x6
Cover pieces 6x6 inches cut 2

It is best to watch the video after you get your pieces cut or as you are cutting your pieces. This is just easier than me trying to explain how to lay your pieces down. I go into lots of detail on the video. 

Paper for outside cover is:

6x8 cut 1 
5 1/2x8 cut 2

Inside cover pieces:

5 1/2x6 cut 1
4 1/8x5 1/2 inches cut 2


12x5 3/4 inch score on the long side at 5" and then turn 180 degrees and score at 5"
11 1/2x5 3/4 inch score on long side at 5" and turn 180 score at 5"
11x5 3/4 inch on long side score at 5" turn 180 and score at 5"
10 1/2x5 3/4 on long side score at 5" turn 180 score at 5"

These are your pages and spine. Stack these pages starting with the longest and moving to the smallest and glue together. This is show in detail in the video. 


Page mats are 4 3/4"x5 1/2" 

Pocket mat is 3 1/4"x4 3/4"

Pockets and Flaps 

Small Pocket is cut at 3 1/2x5 1/2 on long side score at 1/2" on both ends.
Large pocket 5 3/4x6 inches on long side score at 1/2" on both ends
Flaps 5"x6 1/4 score on the 6 1/4" side at 1/2"

Glue these on any page you like. 

You can make pocket inserts or tags like I did to go inside your pockets. 

Cut out the pull tab on the pockets and the flaps, so when flipping through you know where your pockets and tab pages are.

Long Card & DIY Matching Envelope

We had lots of messages after we made the templates for the regular size envelopes. Most everyone wanted to know how to make the envelopes for the long cards. So we have done those calculations and here you go. Hope this helps everyone. You know after making this envelope and long card I am loving long cards. I think I may be making more of them soon. 

This card is 4 1/2"x8" when it is finished. 

You will start off with a piece of cardstock that is 8"x8" and I wanted mine off set at the bottom so I scored mine at 3 1/2" this gave me a little big longer back than front. I added a piece of white paper on the inside for the writing that is 3 1/2x7 1/2" and the piece at the top is 3 1/2x8" I used my punch and made a decorative edge on this that I left showing just a little on the outside.  

The flowers on the front are just from some various dies I have that will be linked below the video if I can find them.

Now we are ready for the envelope.

The way you calculate the size of the paper you will need for the envelope is as follows.

Take the length of your card, (8") and add 1 1/2" so your paper would be 9 1/2" wide. Then to get the high of your paper take the finished high of the card times 2 and then add 2" for the flap. 
Example (my card is 4 1/2"x2 = 9" + 2" = 11" so the height of your paper would be 11".

Overall paper size is 9 1/2"x11"

Then on the 9 1/2" side you will need to score at 1/2" on both sides. So whatever size your paper is score at 1/2" turn to the other side and score at 1/2". 

Turn your paper to the 11" side and score the height of your card, in my case mine is 4 1/2", then you will add the height of your card again plus 1/2" to give the back a little extra height than the front. So in my case I then scored at 9 1/2". This leaves me with 1 1/2" flap. If you want your flap to be larger then just add more inches onto the paper size. 

I hope this makes sense if not try to watch the video and read this along with it. I promise it will make more sense then lol. 

Thanks so much. E

Mini Album and More Storage

We are making a storage for mini albums, journals, notebooks, glasses, pens and more. This is a very functional storage container you can sit beside your bed or on an end table to hold all those items that tend to collect there. The over all size is 6"x9 1/2"x6" so it is perfect for the tables.  Below is the full tutorial as well as the measurements and photos. Hope to see you guys make a few of these they can be used for so many different things. 

Share in our Facebook Group


Chipboard sizes
Bottom: 6x9 1/2
Sides 6x9 1/2 cut 2 of these
Back 6x6
Divider 3 1/2x6

Construction strips 1"x12" score in the center at 1/2" and place score tape on both sides of the score line. Use this to attach the chipboard together.
After joining your chipboard pieces together go ahead and cover the outside edges of the chipboard. This will give you a base mat and make the piece more sturdy. 

Inside Mats

Inside mats are cut 1/16 shy of the chipboard. 

Outside Mats

Front mat 5 3/4"x2 3/4"
Side mats cut 9 1/4"x5 3/4" cut 2 and then lay against your chipboard and trim to match the angle. Cut 2 of these.
Back mat is cut at 5 3/4"x5 3/4"
Bottom Mat is cut at 9 1/4"x5 3/4"


Make sure to put your constructions strips on two short sides and one long side and then turn it over and do the same. This way when you place it in the container it will not slip. I show in the video how to place it in. Mat for the divider 5 3/4"x7 1/8" this piece will fold over the top of the divider and onto the back forming the full mat.You will place it at the 2 1/2" mark from the front. Put a construction strip on the top to cap the top off and cover the chipboard. Glue it down

Tent Box Card, Matching Envelope & Dolly Parton?

Well after reading the title I bet you are curious as to what I am talking about lol. You will have to watch the video to get the full story, but I do tell you how my MS butterfly punch ended up in Dolly's hands. 

The measurements for this card are very easy and it comes together very fast, you could make many of these without any trouble at all. If you do make these cards make sure to share on our FACEBOOK group, we love to see your projects. 

All the measurements are below and you will find links to all the products used under the video. Hope you make a few and share them with us. 


Cardstock is 6"x12" on the long side score at 1/2", 1 1/4", 2" and 7". 

Mats for the front are cut at 5 7/8"x4 7/8" white sheet
Top mat is 5 3/4"x4 3/4" designer paper

Find the center of the bottom of the design paper and mark it. mark up from the center mark 1 3/4", now cut from the center bottom to the spot up at 1 3/4". Take your ruler and place it from the end of the cut to the side point of the card bottom and fold this back, do this to both flaps. Fold them up and reinforce. 

Scallop punch is 2 1/2" in a matching color
Circle punch is 2" in black or matching color

Butterflies one is about 1 1/2" and the others are 3/4" and 1/2". If I can find any of these punches I will leave the link below the video.

Put your mats on the front of the card and then glue the 1/2" flap to the back side creating your "tent" fold. 

Embellish as you wish and you are finished.


Since your card measurements 5"x6" you will need to come up with an envelope. We have took the guess work out of this for you. 

Make a template out of some lightweight chipboard like a cereal box that is 5 1/2"x6 1/2". 

To get the size paper you need for your card you need to take the cards largest size and add 3" since this is an odd side card and not a square. See our video below if you would like to see how to calculate you envelope sizes. Since your largest size of your card is 6" then you add 3" and you come up with a 9"x9" piece of paper. Take your template and place catty cornered to the points of the paper getting it as close the even on all sides as you can. fold the paper around the template, you can shift the chipboard to make the side points come out even across from each other, as I show int he video. Do this on all sides and then take the template our and reinforce your score lines. Cut out the corners as I show in the video and trim or round the points. Glue together and you have your matching envelope.

Why I Am MIA Lately

Hey guys, it is E, I know long time no see right? Well I thought I would drop in and give you a quick update on what has been going on and why I have been MIA lately and hopefully when I will return.

I have been fighting a really bad infection that has caused severe migraines and lots of pain. Doctors have me on some strong antibiotics and pain meds that just make me feel even rougher. I have struggled with keeping up with orders, affiliate posts and kits, but I have just not felt like doing videos. Since the infection is in my jaw, it hurts really bad when I eat, talk, smile or just to open my mouth. Thus the reason no videos have been up lately. I will get them caught back up just as soon as I can.

We decided to take a few days off and take the grands to the beach and maybe during this time I could just rest and feel better. And so far so good. I am feeling better, not there yet but I am a lot better than last week. My "right hand man" Whitt, has been having some health issues as well so we are just staying in the condo, resting and relaxing while the kids and grands do their thing. We do get up and moving in time to go eat lol. Soft foods have become my friend lol.

I just wanted to fill you in on why you haven't seen me lately and to let you know that I will be back to full schedule soon I hope. And to also thank you for all your prayers, messages, well wishes and sweet comments. You guys are awesome and I know the prayers are why I am getting better so keep them coming please.

Until next week, (I hope), we will continue to rest and relax.

Love all of you and thank you all for your support. I could not do this without you.

With Love, E

Making Any Size Envelope & Free Templates

Well I have tried this method I came up with on just about every size card I can think of and so far it works great. I hope you will find it works for you too. I see many videos on YouTube about how to come up with the sizes paper, folds, score lines etc to make any size envelope but they all see to have so many steps in them. When I make a card and need an envelope I don't have a lot of time to I need something quick and easy. After all in this fast paced world isn't that the name of the game fast? 

Full tutorial Below

So I came up with these steps and have tried them over and over and they work every time, so far! And it is only two basic steps. I have worked out the math for most normal card sizes and have created templates, linked below, for all that I can think of. But if you have a different size card just use the steps below to determine what size paper you will need for your envelope. And these can easily be made with pattern paper, I just used card stock to make it easier for you to see. 

The first step is to determine the size of your finished card. Now add 1/5" onto both those measurements. This will be the size of your template, and yes make you a template and write the size on them, makes it much easier when you want to make another envelope for that same one.

The second step after the template is to determine what size paper you will need to make your envelope. So if your card is anything other than a square card like a 4 1/2x6 1/4 or a 4 1/4x5 1/2 then you will need to take the largest size which in the 4 1/2x6 1/4 is the 6 1/4 and add 3 inches onto that. Thus your paper size for the envelope should be 6 1/4x3 = 9 1/4x9 1/4 make the paper square. 

Then just take your template, lay it as shown below, with the center points of the top and bottom of your card facing the points and fold around your template. As you fold around fold the opposite sides, this way you can match your points to make sure you get it close to even all the way around. I explain this in the video.

Take the template out and reinforce your score lines and then trim out where the score lines cross over in the corners. This makes the card fold over must easier. Glue and you are all set.

Shelf Holder For Mini Storage Boxes

Quick and easy project but very useful. You can add to this project by going up with you bins or going out to the sides. I love making these and you can do them in all colors to match your room or decor. Below is the full video tutorial and measurements. Enjoy and don't forget to share with us your creations on our Facebook Group.

12x12 paper score at 1/2", 4 1/2", 7 1/2" and 11 1/2"

2 sheets that are cut at 3"x12", use construction strips and put these on the ends where the score lines end. Put one on each end as shown in the video. Then score these the same as the 12x12 sheet. 

Cut away one of the small tabs on the ends and then cut up on all other score lines. 

Chipboard reinforcements:

3 7/8"x11 7/8" you will need 2 of these
2 7/8"x11 7/8" you will need 1 of these
2 7/8"x3 7/8" you will need 4 of these.

glue your chipboard pieces on the inside and then you are ready to glue your piece together.

Make sure to use your construction strips on both sides of the dividers to prevent slipping. 

Have fun!!

Then glue the box sides together and slide the other pieces of chipboard into the box gluing as you go. You may have to trim off the chipboard on the ends if the don't fit, just trim a little then dry fit.

Beach Hut 3D Box

This is a cut and easy project. We used some items we got in our July E Club Kit and made this adorable Beach Hut box. I love the beach so this is right up my alley. I have never been to a beach that had beach huts, I don't even know if they are a "thing" anymore. Let me know in the comments below if the beach you visit has these. I would love to see some photos of some of them. 

I will like all the products I used under my video tutorial, if you can't see all the links just click the show more on your computer or the little arrow on the left side on your ipad or phone. 

Cardstock 10 1/2x10, on the long side score at 1/2", 3", 8" turn and score at 1/2, 2 1/2, 7 1/2"
Cardstock 5 1/2x10 on the long side score at 1/2, 2 1/2, 7 1/2 then turn and score at 1/2".

In the small boxes under the 1/2" score line mark the center and then score a line from that mark down to the side where the two score lines meet. Then do the same thing the other way creating a triangle in these two small boxes. 

Mats: 4 3/4x4 3/4 inches cut 2 front and back

The oval attachment is 3 1/2" long x 2 1/2" wide. I can not find the exact over I used to die cut mine but I have linked one that will work here.
