Paper Craftin with Erica

Mini Albums

Now that Merceydeis is well over 18 (and done with secondary education), it’s time to work on her School Days album.  I tend to procrastinate, but not only that… I like to wait until the project’s purpose is complete (in this case, it was finishing school).  See, if I don’t wait my style will change, I’ll Read more

So, it’s been a LONG time, but I’m back for another WOYWW with Stamping Ground.  I’m working on what I call my “Instagram Album” but what other people would probably just call a “mini” album.  I’m only working with my Instagram pics and they’re perfectly sized 2×2 and 4×4 by Persnickety Prints (my favorite place Read more

I made this cute album of Christmas 2008.  Of course, I am not in any of the pictures… because I'm ALWAYS the one taking them!  (Not to mention that I hate my picture taken.)  To make this album, I used the Woodrowe Keepsake Album Kit from The Angel Company.  Here are some pics… I won't bore Read more

I had a workshop last weekend and one of the things we made was a clear mini album.  It's approximately 3" and SO cute!  I used tags from our More Mimi collection to create the body of our book. It's an "All About of Me" book with a "SHE" theme.  Eventually, I'll add a few Read more

I made this brag book for my sister for Christmas.  I made it without pictures so she could choose which ones were in there.  She cried when she saw it.  She said, "Wow, Erica, you made me something?"  It feels good to have your hard work appreciated.  I used a simple board book.  I then Read more

Merceydeis celebrated her GOLDEN birthday this year! She turned 8 on April 8th of 2008. How cool is that?! Of course, this special day called for a special album. We threw a surprise party for her. Everyone came… grandmas, grandpa, aunts, uncle, nieces, nephews, friends… and, of course, us! She was so surprised to see Read more

I am so excited with the outcome of this mini chipboard album.  I bought this little book for only $1.95 from TAC and, frankly, had no idea what to do with it.  (I often buy things before I have a plan!)  Recently, I received some paints from Making Memories as a gift.  I decided that Read more
