I need to admit that I love minialbums. I love to create them, collect them and finally after a while browsing page by page. It’s great idea to gather more photos in one place. Now I can see that it was worth to make lots of minialbums. Nowadays my son – he’s three – is viewing my albums and keep asking questions about photos, places and dates. It’s great fun spending time with him in that way. Well, you can say there is lot of work in such an album, it takes more time than scrapbooking page. I don’t think so. I want to show you how easy it can be. You don’t even need lots of supplies, just basic stuff.
Here’s the list of supplies which I used: Amy Tangerine Plus One papers, Amy Tangerine embroidery set, Photos, Scissors, Ruler
When you’ve got all it’s time to start. I’ll explain everything in simple steps.Step 1: Cut papers to size 12 cm* 15 cm ( I had photos 10*15 cm and I wanted to use them as individual pages for my album).Step 2: Fold each paper as on the picture. I divided each piece for 2 cm fold 10 cm wide/ 15cm highStep 3: Make holes with paper piercer every 1 cm on each piece of paper on the fold area.Step 4: Arrange your photos and add titles, embellishments and whatever you like.Step 5: When your pages are ready sew it together. As you can see it’s quite simple. And here’s my whole album.I encourage you to try this!!! Hope you like it and have fun! Ola
Last week I shared photos of our set up at the Boom Boom Room event. As I told you all in that post, it was our first time doing Pre-Emmy's, and earlier this year, we did Pre-Oscar's. It was a pleasure chatting with everyone and I especially loved meeting the fellow mamas and watching the kids interact. Here are some more pictures of the fun-filled day.

We have some house guests coming for the weekend and I wanted to put a little gift box together to set on their dresser when they arrive. I think it is fun to provide guests with a couple things that might make them feel more at home. For the gift box I didn't want to go out and buy a generic box so I asked my husband to picked up a couple cigar boxes from the local shop (they will just give them to you for free) and I simply covered it with Plus One paper using spray adhesive, it was super quick and easy.From there I just gathered my supplies and took the time to make each one special. I love adding little personal touches to let them know we love them and are SO glad they are here!The tags from the Plus One collection are PERFECTION for a quick project like this because they come already put together, with the sewing down the middle. It just adds that special touch to make it pop! What I love about the clips is that they can take those off and use them again on their own projects!We also had a t-shirt for the box from my Mother-in-laws recent trip to Tahiti instead of just putting it at the bottom I decided to add the adorable Amy Tangerine ribbon to hold it all together. Anything is cuter with yellow camera ribbon on it!For me part of putting a gift together is taking something ordinary and adding just a little something to make it stand out. Instead of just throwing in some chocolate (for any late night munchies) I put them in a tiny mason jar and then made a little tag to sit inside the lid, it just pulls it all together (one or two candy corn M&Ms might have been eaten in the making of this photo).What I love about using a line like Plus One for this project that is it makes it look like a cohesive gift when in fact you will find anything from champaign to marshmallow fluff (....my brother-in-law loves it!) in there! This helps me pull it all together and is sure to put a smile on your houseguest's face! Have a wonderful day! Shanna
