  1. I only recently discovered your site and I LOVE it. When I read you were doing the vertical bag tutorial I had to go out and get the same supplies you are using. I really look forward to your tutorial.

  2. Ok so thank goodness that you doing this. Loved tha paper bag idea but never liked the results. I love your books and can’t wait it start!!!!

    Thanks for everything you do

  3. I love your website and the great tutorials you offer…very inspiring!!!
    And now I can’t wait to get started on this album….I had all the supplies if you can believe that…

  4. Hello, love the mini album. I have searched for how you actually put it all together and can not find the instructions! Just wondered if I am just not looking in the right space. Thank you for the you tube videos!!Super fun!!!!

    • Thanks! The video series will begin on Monday, January 28th. I wanted to give everyone ample time to gather their supplies so they can create the mini album along with me!

  5. Hi Ginger! I am super excited about making this vertical min! Two quick questions: (1) Can we use an 8×8 paper pad? I have the October Afternoon 9 to 5 and I’ve been dying to use it; (2) What cutter do you use to cut your chipboard?

    Thanks in advance!

  6. Hello, Ginger ~
    I had a few questions that I hope you can answer!
    1) which Fiskars paper trimmer do you have? I like the lock on yours. Mine is old school from 13 years ago!!
    2) Where do you buy chipboard?
    3) What brand is your scoreboard? I’ve never seen one before!
    4) What tool do you use to apply the walnut stain and what kind of mat is that?

    I found the paper at Michael’s and I’m so excited to get started on making one of these beautiful albums!!

    Thanks ~


  7. i just sat and watched all of your videos on youtube to make the vertical paper bag mini album……it is a great gift idea and is so well constucted. in your videos through you refer to measurement being put in the description box…..hate to sound stupid but is there a place where i can find all supplies and measurements to make these books?

  8. Just found your channel and watched the video for the vertical paper bag album. I wanted to ask you the names for the bone folder tool and the corner trimmer tool and where you got them.

    thanks – great work!!

  9. Hi I have just watched all the video tutorials for the construction of this mini album and have a question, hope you dont think this is a silly question. Between videos 3 & 4 you went from attaching the paper to the pages and them went on to do the tag insets, however you had already decorated some of the pages, is this demonsated somewhere else. I am only new to this form of craft and would like some “inspiration” with regards to the decorations.

  10. LOVE your tutorial and this project!!! Our church crafting group will be making books this next weekend. I was sad to find that Michaels is no longer making that size bag. The largest one you can get in that style is the “3LB” 4.7″ x 2.8″ x 8.9″. We’re going to have to run with that and make it work. Why would they quit making the larger bag?!?!?
