Cascading Mini Album with Cover

We are doing the remake of the cascading mini album that we did a few years ago. These are such a cute gift and so easy to make. Hope you enjoy the tutorial. All the measurements are listed below.


Cover 8 1/2x3 1/4 inches, on the long side score at 3 1/4", 3 3/4", 7" and 7 1/2". Round the corners on the end at the 7 1/2". This will be the front flap.

Mats for the front cover are 2 @ 3"x3"
                                             2@ 3/8"x3"
                                             1 @ 3/4"x3"

Cut 3 page inserts that are 3"x12" score on long side at 3, 6 and 9". Accordion fold and glue the ends together making a long train of them.

Mats for the page inserts are cut at 2 3/4"x2 3/4" you will need 23 of these.

Don't glue the mat on one end of this, this is where you will glue to the inside of your cover. Glue the cascading part to the cover and make you belly band to close. You can also use a magnet to close.

Belly band is cut at 1"x8 1/2" and the mat for this is cut at 3/4"x 8 1/4".
Glue these together then you will need to score at 3 1/4", 3 7/8", 7 1/8" and 7 3/4"

ATC Mini Album & Giveaway

Today we thought we would join in the ATC world and make a place for our collection of ATC cards. We have received a few over the last few months from our sweet friends attending Made-it-con, so we decided to make a place to keep them and some journaling so we knew when, when and whom they came from.


The chipboard is cut at 3 1/2x4 1/2 inches and you will need two pieces.
The front and back covers for the chipboard is cut at 4 1/4"x5 1/4".
Cut the inside cover just shy of 3 1/2"x4 1/2" this will allow it to cover the inside raw edges of the paper.


The pieces for the pockets are cut at 7"x4" on the long side score at 1/2", 3 1/2" and 6 1/2"

Journaling sheets:

Cut these at 2 3/4"x3 3/4" round of use a decorative punch on the corners.

To punche the holes for the rings I came down from each end of the chipboard 1" and in from the edge 3/8".

Product I used is listed below the video.

Cascading Waterfall Card - Using our "E" Club Kit supplies

This is a sweet and easy waterfall card, but I am calling it the cascading waterfall card because we made the cascading album this month. It is the easiest I have made yet I think as far as waterfalls go. All the measurements and the template are linked below.

My card base is 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" but you can use this on any card front.

Cut one piece of solid cardstock, I used the pink at 3/4"x4"

Cut another piece of solid cardstock, I used the green at 2 1/4"x8 1/2" you will score on the long side at 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2", 3", 3 1/2".  Take the pink piece you cut at 3/4" and glue this at the top closest to the score lines, cross ways (if confused look on the video and I show you just where it goes) leaving the same amount hanging off at each end. Punch holes about 1/4" in on each end of the pink piece this is where you will put your brads and attach to the card base.

Cut 4 white pieces of cardstock at 2 1/4"x2 1/4" and use the stamp to stamp on these or decorate with flat embellishments. Maymay stamp set. 

Cut 4 patern paper pieces of cardstock at 2 1/2"x2 1/2" I used the prima pattern paper from our March "E" Club Kit. 

Cut 4 pieces of solid cardstock for the back, I use pink for this because it matches our collection.

Card mat should be 4"x5 1/4" again I use the green checked pattern paper from our collection.

To assemble the card it is best to watch the video, it is really hard to write and explain how it goes together, but when you see it it is so easy.
