Garden Memories Pop-Up Album Tutorial

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a vintage summer pop-up mini-album tutorial on the Sizzix blog. I used Eileen Hull's new Garden Gate Album and lots of new Karen Burniston Journey dies. You can see the whole Picket Fence Collection here, and the whole Journey Collection here.

The Garden Gate Album is so pretty and such fun to use. I love to make mini-albums with pop-up elements, since the interactive aspects of pop-ups are perfect for mini-albums. You can see two other of my pop-up album tutorials here and here. This album is about my memories from the garden of the house where I was born. I developed photos stretching over about 11 years. The house and garden was demolished a few years after we moved out and I had fun thinking about and writing journaling about this garden, which I haven't seen for many years.

To see how I made this, and all the inside pop-up pages, head over to the Sizzix blog.

Thank you for stopping by!
