Mini Keepsake Journal

Such a delightful keepsake.
This was quick, simple, and fun to create.

I shared this tutorial, posted last week here on my blog;
Friday's Lovely Links

First I created my mini album.
I watched the video that Hope Karney suggested from her site.
The video will show you how to make your very own 
 3 x 3 inch journal from one sheet of paper.
Click here to view the tutorial.

No doubt about it...
these are fast and fun to make!

All I needed to do was resize some photos 
to fit the journal and print away...

There is a total of 16 pages
 worked on each one at a time.
I added embellishments, scrap bits of paper, 
rubber stamps, washi tape, acrylic paint, 
watercolors, and ink.

 Grand-baby's First Christmas 

Happy Tuesday


  1. Lovely album for a lovely little boy! Hugs, Valerie

  2. You did a beautiful on your little 16 page journal! I finished making one, but I haven't put anything in it yet. I have another idea for something like this that I'm going to work on next. Then I have to fill these!!!

  3. Cute, cute, cute!!! And your grandbaby is so sweet!

  4. Wow! I didn't see this tutorial...I can't believe you made that from a single sheet of paper! I am definitely going to check that out. Your little book looks GREAT, and what a treasure to have as a keepsake of your grandson's first Christmas! :-)

  5. So glad you all came by for a visit!
    Yes, I just had to share this tutorial along with creating one myself. :]
    I was very interested in seeing...
    if this project was as easy and fun as it looked.
    YES IT WAS!!!
    And, all from one sheet of 12x12paper...awesome!!!
    Enjoy... share photos if you can. <3
