About this 2023 Retreat Album
At my Mini Album Retreat, I designed this bespoke project and was finally able to share my BRAND NEW easy way to HARD COVER an album.
Everyone that attended created exactly what you see here – a fantastic mini album that can contain up to 58 slightly trimmed down 6×4 photos – a brilliant way to share your memories.
As you can imagine, there has been an enormous amount of work putting together 2 days Retreat in an online workshop.
To make it easier for you to digest and to help break each area up in to individual and manageable chunks, I take you step by step through the processes that everyone went through making their albums.
Do I need to be an expert crafter to make this?
Absolutely not! Everyone attending the Retreat had a mixture of experiences from an absolute beginner to a seasoned expert and everyone went away with a finished album.
The videos are broken down as follows:
- Construction – 8 imperial & 8 metric videos
- Decoration – 7 imperial & 7 metric videos
- Embellishments – 8 imperial & 8 videos
- Page Attachments – 2 imperial & 2 metric videos
What do I get with this Workshop
27 individual videos with me taking you step by step through cutting your card, creating my Brand New easy way to HARD COVER an album, constructing your different page designs, attaching your patterned papers & embellishments and then finally attaching the pages to the main cover.
Also included are downloadable PDF documents that you can print to accompany the workshop. As with the videos, I have created 2 documents – one with Imperial and the second Metric with measurements.
So, gather your supplies, sit down and craft along with me and let your creative juices flow!
