Tri-Fold Mini Album

Hello Everyone!

Here is the Tri-Fold Mini Album I promised you. While I was gone, Amanda completed it...and it is beautiful! She turned it into a mini wedding album for her Grandma.

This is what it looks like closed. Note the cuttlebugged paper, the pearls, the inking, the ribbon and the flowers...not to mention the felted paper. Very lush!!

Here it is opened up. She used rub-ons for the lettering and on the photos.  Then below is a photo of the envelope she made to fit the album. I think her Grandma will love it!

 Okay...that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for visiting my little corner of the world!



  1. I think I would like to make one of these. My folks have a 50th anniversary coming up; what a nice card that would make!

    Any chance of a video tutorial?

    Awesome work, ladies!

  2. Sue--I will try to do that for you. It's really only two tri-fold cards put together, so if I show you how to make one, you should be able to make the album. Where she has the ribbon behind the photo in the center, is where the two cards meet. Anyway, I'll try to put a video together within the week. :) I appreciate you stopping by!!

  3. Wow, this is absolutely gorgeous Carmen....you have such creative ideas...will keep my eyes peeled for your video!

  4. Beautiful! Gorgeous! She's going to LOVE it!

  5. Thanks i like your blog

  6. I posted a link to your finished project (and tutorial) on my blog. I just love this!


  7. Thanks Elizabeth! I've commented on your post, but I'm not sure it showed up.

  8. Hi Carmen,

    just found this tutorial, the album is beautiful! I've made tri-fold cards but never would have thought to make a mini album. This could be what I need for my cousin's 25th wedding anniversary. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for the comments!
