TUTORIAL - 7x9 Interactive Scrapbook Mini Album

In this tutorial, I show you how to create my Interactive 7 x 9 Scrapbook Mini AlbumThe album measures 7”w x 9” h with a thickness of 3-1/2”. There are 10 pages of interactive flaps, pockets and waterfalls (including my new pocket waterfall which I've never done before).  The album on the left (pictured above) is the actual album I make in the videos that accompany my written tutorial. The album on the right is the demo album I refer to as an example.

I show you how to make the album from scratch including covers and binding pages into the album, but you can also use a Heartfelt Creations premade Flip-Fold album if you prefer since they are exactly the same size as the album in my tutorial.

The tutorial is in PDF format and contains over 70 pages of extremely detailed step-by-step instructions with over 350 photos that show how I created this project from start to finish. Measurements are included for each piece you will need to construct the album.

In addition to the written tutorial, I'm including free links to my series of 20 ONLINE VIDEOS that show how to make the journal album as I create a brand new one from start to finish. (I plan on making these unlisted videos available to everyone who purchases my tutorial for as long as the service provider can continue hosting them for free.)

Below are videos of the two albums I made based on this tutorial. (If you have difficulties viewing the videos, you can click the links below each one to view them on my YouTube channel.)
