Many of you are probably familiar with the concept of the tri-shutter album as it’s found pretty widely on the internet now-adays, but what what many of you may not know is that we were actually the original creators of the tri-shutter mini scrapbook album way back in 2009. At that time there were tri-shutter cards aplenty, and we thought it would be awesome to take the concept and turn it into a mini album. So with a little fiddling, we designed an album that was 6″ x 8″ and fit 5 pictures.
Fast forward 2 years, we decided it’s time to revamp the album. Although we used the same patterned paper for it, that’s pretty much all we kept the same. The die cut elements are from Echo Park’s Season’s Greetings collection, the rhinestones are from My Mind’s Eye, and the ribbon is from Papertrey. We also changed the design a little so that there is now an extra insert in the middle that allows for 3 extra pictures, and then used the long side panels for pictures instead of embellishments so that this little album now holds 9 pictures in all.
We have put together a kit for this project which you can see in the Sunny Stampin’ Store HERE, we are releasing it as a digital tutorial tomorrow, and of course, as I mentioned in our last post, Paper Crafter’s Library members receive the tutorial as a benefit of their membership.
