A couple weeks ago, Naomi Smith challenged her Connected Hearts team to create a project using the Picture My Life cards from one of the new paper collections. She is giving away an extra mini-album kit that CTMH created for the Pinners Conference. As I REALLY want to win, I decided to send good vibes out into the universe by creating my own mini-album using the Some Kinda Wonderful PML cards. Here’s hoping I’ll get lucky and she’ll draw my name!
3×4 Mini-Album Directions
- 3×5 piece of cardstock
- scoring board
- bone folder
- strong adhesive
- 10 3×4 PML cards
Score the 3×5 cardstock at .5, .75, 1.25, 1.75, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.25, 3.75, 4.25, and 4.5. I would use a scoring board and the narrow end of a bone folder to score your hinge as opposed to a stylus. I found the groves made by the stylus were too big which didn’t allow my hinges to line up properly. You will now glue the adjacent .5 inch pieces together leaving .25 inches between each hinge.
Figure out the order and orientation of your cards, and start gluing them to the hinges. The top card will be glued to the front side of the hinge only. You will then glue both pages together when adding the next card to the back of the hinge. I used Liquid Glass…you don’t need much. Just make sure you get all the way up to the edge of the cards so they will stick together well. After all the cards are adhered to the hinge, you can use another piece of cardstock to cover the binding.
I hope you have fun making this project! Please post a link to your finished mini-album in the comment below or on my Facebook page. Here are the rest of my mini-album pages. Oh, yeah…be sure to stamp BEFORE adhering your PML cards to the hinge. Umm…yeah…perfection is overrated, right?!
