Stamperia Make a Wish 6×8 Chunky File Folder Mini Tutorial ~ Now Available!

Hello Happy Crafters!!
It’s here, it’s here!! Thanks so much for your patience. The Stamperia Make a Wish 6×8 File Folder Mini Tutorial is now available in my Etsy shop.
AND it is part of the 20% off sale!  (Sale ends tonight, Monday Jan 6, at midnight ET.)
This File Folder Mini is the same foundation construction at the Patchwork 6×6 File Folder MiIni, only expanded to a bigger, chunkier 6×8 size. There are NEW elements in this project as well!
In addition to the basic foundation, with the inside front/back cover pockets, and the two pages – which are the same construction as the 6×6 Mini, just larger – this album also features two brand new Pocket Folios and two new Drop Ins, designed exclusively for this bigger size!
The Pocket Folios fit into the inside front/back cover pockets. And the Drop Ins attach to the front of each of the two pages. So much fun!
And yes, as with my other Pocket Folios, they can be created separately as individual little folios. Fun to use as quick gifts for special occasions.  The Drop Ins are also interchangeable with my other Drop In series, and can be used wherever you have a page size that will fit them. They can also be created separately as fun gifties as well.
Video Walk-Through: Check out the video walk-through of the full project here:
I hope you’ll give this fun, versatile mini a try!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Happy crafting, Donna

Graphic 45 By the Sea File Folder Mini Tutorial ~ Now Available!

Hello Happy Crafters!

As many of you know, back in June, my very first project as a Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador was a fun file folder mini video tutorial where I taught you how to make a 6.5″ x 6.5″ mini book using file folders!

That project was decorated using Graphic 45’s By the Sea collection, and I got an avalanche of requests asking if there would be a written tutorial for the project and a full cutting guide with all the mats sizes included (folders and pattern papers.) I LOVE your enthusiasm, and I’m happy to announce the answer is YES!

Get the tutorial here: File Folder Mini By the Sea Tutorial

The tutorial includes a full Cutting Guide PDF with all the info needed to cut the file folder base and the pattern papers. All the mat sizes are included, so you can use any pattern paper you wish. It also includes a full photo/instruction file teaching you how to make the foundation and how to decorate it.

The step-by-step video tutorial teaching you how to make the foundation is still available for free! In fact, you can check it out right here:

 

Full Product Kits: (edited to add: these have now sold out!) Katie Alison of Katie’s World scrapbook store in Stockton CA has put together pre-cut, full product kits for this project! There are a few left as I write this. If you’re interested you can pick one up in her Etsy shop HERE.

New Tutorial Available AND….did someone say SALE?

It’s Cyber Week at Etsy and MiniBooksRMe has joined in the fun with my biggest sale yet!

From now through midnight, Monday, November 26th, ALL tutorials in my shop are 15% off! No coupons or codes required. The items are already marked down for ya!

And yes, the sale does include the following brand new File Folder Mini tutorial. Read on for all the details!

I’m happy to announce that the tutorial for File Folder Mini #7 is now available! (And yes, it’s on sale, too!)

This is File Folder Mini uses Authentique’s beautiful, fall inspired, “Pleasant” collection. If you’re new to MiniBooksRMe, this project is part of the ongoing File Folder Mini Series. There are tutorials & walk-through videos available for all of the previous FFM’s, too. Yay! Here are links to my Etsy shop and YouTube channel. 

These File Folder Minis are made from standard manila file folders, then decorated with your favorite paper collections. Each FFM is 6” x 8” with a 1.5” spine and each one comes with a completely unique interior design.

This month the mini features a single page inside, but what a page design this is! The front has multiple fold outs, the page itself is a big pocket-page, and the back is a duplicate of the front, with the same multiple fold outs, spacious pockets, and more. The inside front and back cover add additional photo “real estate” as well. It’s a fun way to learn that you don’t necessarily need a lot of individual pages to create a packed-full minibook!

We’ll also use décor items and cut apart cards to create additional pocket space on the page elements, too!

Big, full-size pull-outs are included in these oversized pockets. It’s like getting multiple folios inside your file folder mini! I love the lush, colorful designs on these cut apart cards!

So many flaps and pockets, all with plenty of room for additional tags if you want to add even more photos or journaling cards.

The page itself is a big, side-loading pocket with room for a pull out folder!

The back of the page features the same over-sized pocket flap, more pull-out folios, and spacious pockets.

All of the pull-outs are mini folios!

So much space to include tons of photos and journaling. The color-blocked pages are easily customizable to fit your photos. Organize, replace, or trim down any element to fit the size photos you want to include.

Check out the full, finished project walk-through!

Thanks so much for watching. You can find the tutorial for this project HERE.

Don’t forget to check out the full Etsy shop HERE to take advantage of the Cyber Week Sale, going on now through Monday November 26th!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and happy crafting!

File Folder Mini #6 Tutorial ~ Now Available!

I’m happy to announce that the digital tutorial for my File Folder Mini #6 using the  Graphic 45 Imagine collection is now in my Etsy shop! 

For new visitors, this project is part of the ongoing File Folder Mini Series. (There are tutorials & YouTube walk-throughs for all of them. Yay! Links to shop and channel are over there in the right hand column of this page.)

These File Folder Minis are made from standard manila file folders, then decorated with your favorite paper collections. Each FFM is 6” x 8” with a 1.5” spine and each one comes with a completely unique interior design.

In this jam-packed mini you’ll make a fun satchel-style, deep pocket on the inside front cover that holds a thick, full-sized folio!

Then Page 1 is designed from one file folder piece, including top tab, making a top-loading pocket page that comes with a big folder-tabbed pull out tag. Plus a fun fold-out slant pocket, which holds another folder.

So much room for photos, large and small!

And the fun doesn’t stop there! The back of Page 1 features a fold out double pocket AND an add-on page, giving you tons of photo “real estate.” I love hidden goodies, don’t you?

Then it’s on to Page 2, which is an overlapping split pocket page. With more hidden goodies! Photos on the next page.

Those front pocket flaps are actually pull out folders!

But that’s not all. On the back of these pocket flaps there’s space for another cute folder (because, of course there is! Have you met me?)

Then the inside the back cover has, yes, even more room for small to overlarge tags so you can squeeze in as many photos as possible.

One of the things I loved about this collection is it lends itself well to just about any kind of photos. The theme being to imagine, dream big, keep trying…and the colorful palette strikes just the right tone. Striking, but not overwhelming, so your photos will be the highlight.

Walk-Through Video!
