Part 3 How to Make a Mini Album from Scratch with Stamperia Welcome Home

Hello, Friends!  Are you ready for Part 3 How to Make a Mini Album from Scratch?  In this segment, we’re going to dive in and start working on the interactive signature pages.  First, we will do a walk-through of the first  signature so you can see how all the pages work.  Then we will create those same elements in the second signature.  I think you’re really going to enjoy seeing how all the bits and pieces come together!

In case you missed it, you can watch Part One HERE.  That’s where we build the chipboard album from scratch, add the tabbed spine and make the signature pages.

Part 2 of this series can be viewed HERE.  In this segment we make the 3 decorative tags and design the front and back inside covers.

Teacups and Teapots

Each signature in this mini album follows a theme.  The first signature focuses on the whimsical houses in this collection.  The second signature focuses more on teacups and teapots, one of my favorite themes.

More Practice with Building a Scene

Both segments will give you lots of practice using collage to build a scene.  This segment is a bit long, but that’s because I take the time to build each page in the signature step by step with you.  I hope you will enjoy watching the way the pages come together and learning a bit more about my process for building a page.

Grab a cuppa and a snack, and maybe a notebook and a pencil, too.  I caption in most all of the measurements for you, so you might want to write them down as you watch.

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post in case you want to make this album with these same supplies.  But you can also use any papers that you happen to have on hand.  That’s the beauty of learning how to create with this process.

I hope you enjoy a restful Sunday.  Look for Part 4 of this series tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh my goodness what an artform to create so much interest in a project. This is a tutorial that has to go in the favourites so I can look regularly and take it all in. It is one of those projects that says ‘But wait! There’s more!’ All that fussy cutting is paying dividends as you can layout at will and play with so many elements. Love it Kathy, the series is a great idea, taking it a section at a time, telling a story. Thank you for sharing.
    We are in town, seeing friends, having arty time and enjoying blue skies and cool breezes.

    I am absolutely loving this project and can’t wait to see the next installment. I am hoping to make one of these albums and will follow your beautiful instruction. I loved the pop-up books as a child and would get lost in them …especially fairy themed ones. Now I am a grandma, I am hoping my granddaughter will love them too and hoping I can make a few like this for her own personal library (made by :”Granny”). And hopefully a dragon themed one for my grandson!
