New Video: "Sisters" Album

Hi, everyone!

So, I am continuing with my path to unfinished projects/requests freedom! Last week I finished my "Sisters" gate fold album with a springtime feel using Graphic 45's "Once Upon a Springtime" paper collection. This wasn't an unfinished project, but finishing it for my friend's birthday {first week of March} kep it from ever becoming one. And I got to cross another project off my request list: Spring Mini.

If you'd like to see how to assemble the base of this album, I have a tutorial up my YouTube channel already: Gate Fold Album Tutorial.

The completed album is a 6"x9" chipboard album. It's bound on both sides using the Bind-It-All & 1.25" diameter o-wires. It wasn't easy to keep it flat enough to function, but I managed & I love how it turned out: Sisters Gate Fold Album.

I hope you enjoyed the video & the completed project. I worked on this project during my UStream show, so there won't be any YouTube step-by-step tutorials, but you can view the UStream recordings at the links below.

Ahead of the game. For once.


  1. Wow! another gorgeous album. Heather will love it. The black and white photos look amazing with that paper collection. Need to think of that the next time I do an album. You work well with the paper collection. They are pretty but I stay away from papers that have large or busy images. But you have given me some ideas. Really enjoy watching your videos. I have seen a few Gate albums videos and maybe that will be my next attempt.
    Thanks for sharing and have a great day.
