Triple Play, it's not just a mini-album

 Triple Play Mini Album Kit
This is truly an amazing kit, the mini album is lots of fun to make and is a great gift too!  The kit includes all you materials you need (Acrylix blocks not included) to complete this very cute mini album.  You simply need to according fold you're two inter-pages and line them up.  The binding is a little tricky but it's should worth it at the end.

Triple Play, as a cards set?

Same kit different look.  See what else you can do with this great kit.  Remember you have 3 full kits.  The Indian Corn Blue set was re-engineered into a cute card gift set.  I can't take credit for this wonderful creation it was crafted by Gloria Rogers, a very creative CTMH sister.

You'll need all the regular supplies in the Triple Play kit plus:
  • Extra Colonial White cardstock to make the pockets for the card holder and 6 card bases (3-1/2" x 3-1/2")
  • Use the main cover as your holder and cut the 2 remaining sheets to create your card fronts
  • Using your stamped die-cuts and embellish away
  • Pop them into the pockets and voilĂ , a cute card set
  • Extra ink colour used:  Outdoor Denim
  • I also used a second stamp set "SAY IT IN STYLE"
 Triple Play, as a scrapbooking layout?
    Yet another great project using this versatile kit.  The original idea came from Connie Macfarlane, using the pattern 'Magician's Choice' from Magic, this layout is truly Magical.  Notice the interactive element on the right page. You can add more photos to complete the story.
    You'll need the regular supplies in the Triple Play kit plus:
    • The NEW Magic How-to-Book
    • Bamboo and Green Garden  cardstock for the bases
    • Brown Bag cardstock for matting
    • 'Bold' color ready alphabet 
    • Inks used:  Brown Bag, Garden Green & Smoothie
    So it's your turn, think outside the mini-album and have fun!

    6 x 6 ~ according album

     This side of the album is done with the Little Princess stamp set and Cherry-O paper packet
     The second side of the album is done with the Shining Star stamp set and Cherry-O paper packet

    I've been eyeing this very cute album for some time now.  You can see it on page 63 for the Summer 2010 Idea Book.  The artwork in the Idea Book is actually 9x9.  I should have checked the recipe before starting but,  the 6x6 turned out just fine.  FIY, all recipes including basic sizes are listed right from the view on-line catalogue.  Good to know, if you are trying to replicate your own version of the artwork in the Idea Book.

    Birthday Craft Project

    I've been waiting for the right time to make this type of project with my daughter and her friends.  The Flip Flop Album was cute and simple to make.
    You only need a 6" x 12" base, folded in an according.  I pre-scored at each 3".  We stamped and embellished the album and during the party I took photos.  One photo of each friend and the guest of honour, plus random photos during the party.  While the girls where swimming (don't worry I had help for watching), I printed the photos and just before leaving we add them to the album.  The girls liked it. (So did Mom)
