Hope you all are doing good.

This is Nikkita Today. Crafters, what do you do to preserve your memories, like we often click photographs, get them framed or make an album. How about making your on scrapbook album to give a handmade touch to your beautiful memories. Today I'm going to inspire you with a Vintage Mini album, so that all you can try easily and gift to your loved ones or preserve memories of your life.
Here we go


Step 1 - Take 2 pieces of chipboard measuring 6 by 6 inches for the base and for the spine take 2.5 by 6 inches. Cover it like book using cardstock and tacky tape.

Step 2 - For the closure take two ribbons and stick them in the middle and cover the whole chipboard using cardstock.

Step 3 - For the pages I used hidden hinge binding system and I have left a gap of 1/2'' between every hinge.

Made 6 pages total,

Page size measures 5.75 by 5.75''

Made 6 pockets measuring 5.5 by 5.5''.

Step 4 - Cut pattern paper as per your choice and distress it with distress ink vintage photo to give a complete look.

I use tacky tape/tacky glue for sticking my pattern paper.

Step 5 - To Decorate Cover, i simply used a Leather paper which is locally available in my near stationery store, I adhered MDF Cut Out, Die cuts, Mulberry Flowers and Resin Charm to give an Vintage look. 

Step 6: Decorate the inside pages as per your choice.  

Tip: When you'll adhere MDF cutout, let it sit for few time to get it adhere with base strongly. I've used Aleene's Tacky Glue

Triple Heart Easel Card by Karthikha

Hello Dear Crafty Folks!

Welcome to my first inspirational post with Rainbow Craftykari. I’m so glad to be part of the Guest Design Team.

Today, I have a lovely fancy fold card to share with you all – a triple heart easel card! And wanna know what’s special about this one? I made this for my hubby for our 3rd anniversary. An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday and the hopes of tomorrow! I wanted to make a special card, and here it is!

This is how the card looks before opening – 3 layers of hearts!

and this is once the card is opened and the easel is set up.

Sharing some more close up pictures.

I have used pink and black CS for the main card base and covered with patterned papers from Papericious. The first layer that has a beautiful pink flower and a die cut heart. I wanted to add a little personal touch, so I hand wrote the sentiment, and added a small pearl to add more interest. I’ve given all the layers of hearts, a border of pearls. I just love the effect of pearls, wherever they are!

For the second layer, I have used a die cut sentiment along with a satin bow which I made using the bow maker tool.

Now on to the final layer, I created a small heart shaker using die cut heart frames. I layered around 5-6 frames one on top of another, stuck them all, and added a heart acetate to close the shaker. Aren’t those sequins lovely? Perfect colors to go with the card! I also added another heart on the left top and a few neon pink drops to accentuate the shaker. The main stopper at the bottom for the easel is another heart die cut that is attached using foam tape.

Some more angles to understand the card.

Oh! By the way, wonder where my personal wishes are? There is a secret base again in pink with my message to him.

Hope you like my card. Do let me know your feedback!
Happy Crafting!!
