Hi everyone! This is Debbie from Project39 Mini Albums and I am so honored to be doing a guest post for Scrapping for Less.
I made a super simple mini album with the fabulous “A Red Christmas” paper pad. This paper pad is done in gorgeous red and white with tan and green and filled with familiar candy canes, ornaments, and other great Christmas themes, but any of the 6X6 paper pads from Scrapping for Less will make a wonderful mini album.
See the full process in my YouTube Video.
Here is the cutting guide for the mini album:
Chipboard: (2) 5X7 & (1) 3X7”
You will need 2 pieces of cardstock to wrap the chipboard, use 2 pieces taped together of 7X11”
To cover the spine, cut a piece of cardstock 4 7/8 X 6.
I used heavy cardstock for the pages, 100 or 110 lb (5) 6 ¾ X 4 ¼.
Page 2:Flap 4 ¼ X 6 ¼ Score on short side at ½
Page 3:Pocket 2 ½ X 7 ¼, score on two short sides and one long side at ½. Flap 6 ¼ X 4 ½, score on long side ½.
Page 4: Top Flap” 6 ¼ x 4 7/8- Score on long side ½ & 5/8. Side flap 6 1/4X 4 ¼, score on short side ½. Page 5:Cut (2) 3 5/8 X 4 ¼ Score on long side of both.
Once you finish building the mini album you can have fun decorating the pages. You can replicate my design, or do your own, and then use whatever embellishments you have to enhance the pages.
You will see that you can make this as simple as you wish, or mix and match the different features to create your own mini album.
Have fun creating!

Sure hope you enjoy Debbie’s mini-album using “A Red Christmas” from Scrapping for Less! I cannot wait to take my paper pad and create a mini album. I think I might even do one for each Christmas! I am so behind in Scrapping Christmas pictures!
A Great BIG thanks to Debbie for doing this for us!!!
