'3 is Definitely Company' using Beautiful Memories collections.

Todays page was created with the two lovely  'Beautiful Memories' collections.
I scrapped a photo of my three darling daughters who of course mean the world to me. It was taken on the day the eldest would leave for a year in the US and we had breakfast in the countryside.

I still love the look of fussy-cut butterflies. Many of the Inkido scrapbookingpapers have patterns that lend themselves well for cutting outdifferent elements.

I used different punches and also paint and mist here. The leaves were really a beige colour but I gave them a lick of acrylic paint to go with my blue green theme.

Anyone say banners,...? Yup, I still love them! :-) For me they will never be out of fashion I think....

That's it for today my friends.
I'm happy you wanted to check out my page and wish you a lovely day!! Lots of hugs!!

Here are the products  I used:

Minialbum with tutorial

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day here at the Inkido blog! Today I would like to show you a mini album that I´ve made by the beautiful papers of Inkido. I will also guide you through a tutorial of the mini album so you can make one yourself! 
I will start by showing you the front of the album. I have used Modeling paste and mist on the background and the flowers. 

 This is how the mini album looks like when you open it. 

 So... Time for the tutorial! Are you ready??

You need:
One 12 x 6 piece of cardstock (colour)
three 12 x 5.75 pieces of cardstock (colour)
two 5.5 x 5.5 pieces of cardstock (colour)

Take the cardstock piece that measures 12 x 6 inches. Score and old it at 3 inches and 2 ½ inches from each end. This piece will be a part of the cover on the mini album.

Now take the three 12 x 5 ¾  pieces and score and fold them at 3 inches from each end. These pieces will be the insides of the mini album. 

Adhere the three 12 x 5 ¾ pieces together to make a paper chain.

 It should look like this when complete.

Adhere the center of your paper chain to the center of your scored and folded 12 x 6 piece of cardstock. It should fit perfectly edge to edge in the center.

 Take your two 5 ½ x 5 ½ pieces of cardstock and adhere to the outer flaps of the 12 x 6 cardstock leaving an even boarder around all three edges.

Now the mini album is ready for pattern paper and decorations.

Good luck with your mini!

Finally I would also like to show you a mixed media canvas I have made. I have used papers, acrylics and mists to get the final result.
