  1. How do you come up with this stuff? This is amazing! You make it all look so easy by changing out the blades like a Szechuan chef :). Again, I would seriously struggle with giving away this cute album after putting all that work into it. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

  2. Woo....this is amazing! I have bookmarked this, as I will need to go very slowly through all those measurements and cuts. That's what makes this all work--getting those just right. I'm glad you have some samples linked in here, too, so I can contemplate how big to make pictures and how many, etc. I just love the design, though, and I am thrilled that you put this together. Will drop you a picture when I put mine together in a month or so....

  3. Thanks Beth...love your sense of humor, and it's a bit of work, but it's so worth the looks on people's faces. Sue, I would love to see the finished product!!

  4. Thanks for a great tutorial! I just love it! I posted a link to this tutorial on my blog here: http://erraticallyelizabeth.blogspot.com/2011/02/tutorial-tuesdays_22.html as part of my favorite mini album tutorials. Thanks again for sharing! :)
