Trifold Mini Album #GDP268

Thursday, 26 November 2020 United Kingdom


Today I am breaking away from Christmas crafting - but only temporarily!

Here is my Trifold Mini Album which I am entering into this weeks Global Design Project #GDP268.
To check out the design teams interpretations and all the entries, click on the image below


This week the challenge is to CASE the designer Charlet Mallett. Charlett's card is simply stunning!

When you CASE the designer over at GDP you can "take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colors, the layout, the theme, the images - whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own"


I hope you can see elements of Charlett's design in my Trifold Mini Album? 

I've used absolutely loads of Stampin' Up! products to create this album! I usually like to stick to a suite or a bundle but for this project, I needed more choice.

I knew once Halloween was over I wanted to use the Magic in This Night patterned paper for a non Halloween project and here it is! What do you think? I bet you thought for a minute, where is that paper from?


I've paired the gorgeous black flowery patterned paper with Petal Pink cardstock and Petal Pink Organdy ribbon. This colour combo really works for me (it's actually the colours of my branding)

Inside the album, I have used the black flowery pattern again, along with the black stripey pattern  - also from the Magic in This Night DSP. I used the Layering Circles dies to die cut scalloped squares from Petal Pink cardstock to sit underneath the DSP squares.

The Petal Pink flower pattern is from the Peony Garden DSP and I have added the Scalloped Ede using the Peony dies. 

Who would have thought these two designer series papers would work so well together?

I will be printing black and white photos into this mini album. The Black Glitter Paper squares will be the mats for my photos. 

I embossed Whisper White cardstock with the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder for the background for all three squares. I have added circle outlines die cut from Basis Black cardstock using the Layering Circle dies.

I have used the Well Said stamp set to pick three sentiments which are perfect for an album you are creating for your significant other. I used the Layering Ovals dies and Rectangle stitched dies to cut them out.


The foliage has been die cut from Vellum using the North Pole Wonder dies.

The flowers are from the Forever Blossom Stamp set and have been die cut with the Cherry Blossom dies. They have been lightly coloured with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends. 

As a final touch I have added Champagne Basic Rhinestone Jewels

I created this album using directions created by Michelle Last - thank you! I don't understand why it's taken me so long to make a trifold album.... it is such a lovely project and I'll certainly be making one again!
