Stacks of Love: a Stacked Page Mini Album – Tutorial version

StackedPageAlbum

Several weeks ago I shared my first¬†stacked page mini album with you, an experiment with a different kind of binding system than I had been used to. For instead of the hidden hinge system, this one is based on stacked pages – hence the name… ūüôā

It is not my invention, I’m not sure whose it is. I’m guessing it’s most likely based on Laura Denison’s¬†stack the deck¬†binding system, on which someone then elaborated.

Anyway, I did add a personal flavour, for my stacked page albums have twelve pages instead of the usual six Рso 24 page surfaces! Рbut with a regular-sized spine. You can see the first iteration of this album in the above-mentioned earlier blog post, created with the Domestic Goddess collection by 7 Dots Studio.

This week I’m sharing the version on which I¬†based my¬†tutorial. This album is somewhat larger, has more elaborate¬†page designs and was made with Prima Marketing’s lovely¬†Tales of You & Me¬†collection. I’m calling this version the ‘Stacks of Love’ mini album ūüôā

The tutorial is listed in my Etsy shop. It is a (written) English language tutorial with measurements in centimeters and inches. It is 130 pages long and holds 324 clear pictures aimed at visual learners. As a bonus it also contains the main measurements for the Domestic Goddess version!
Moreover,¬†I’m very happy to be able to point you to the kit that is available for this album as well! Go to the (US-based!) Photographs and Memories online store, where you will find kits for several of my projects, including this one.

So enjoy the video and please feel free to leave a little note below, in the comment section ūüôā

Stacked Page Mini Album

This week I’m sharing a mini album with¬†twelve¬†pages. As in¬†24¬†individual page layouts!
To make it, I tried a new binding system – new to¬†me¬†at least, it’s been ‘out there’ for quite some time I think. The best way to describe it is the stacked page binding.
I kept this one simple to try it out, but I’ll create another one to be able to make¬†a tutorial for you all, so stay tuned!

And please notice this paper collection you guys, isn’t it stunning? I love it! ‚̧ԳŹ
It’s a somewhat older paper line by¬†7 Dots Studio,¬†and it’s called¬†Domestic Goddess.¬†I think its graphic designer at the time was¬†Finnabair,¬†a well-known name in the paper craft world!
I only had 15 sheets, but that was enough to create this mini album¬†and¬†two beautiful cards – which I’ll share with you in my next ūüôā

Let me know what you think, and stay crafty!
