Live With Prima Mini Album Class!!

Happy Friday everyone. It's a three day weekend and I'm hoping part of this weekend will consist of paint, canvas, and a glorious mess . Last night I had a Live With Prima class and I thought I'd share with ya. Help get those creative juices flowing. This is pretty structured for me and i apologize if the measurements are a little jumbled in the video. I hate measuring :P But here are the accurate measurements you will need if you would like to follow along with the video :D

Here are the measurements for last night's show:
2 pieces of white card stock,watercolor paper, or chipboard at 12"x6", 4 pieces of patterned paper at 12"x6"

Fold lines: On one piece of white crd stock fold at 1" in and again at 4" from the edge.That will give you 3" between the two score lines. On your other piece fold at 3" in and then at 4" in. this will give you a 1" between the two folds. Fold the pieces and then adhere the patterned paper on top of the crd stock.

On the binding of the inside. Accordion fold at a 1/2" you will want at least seven folds. You can add more if you like.

Hope you enjoy and have a artistic three day weekend.

  1. Beautiful my friend!! You are amazing!

  2. Awesome tutorial! I wanted to know how to do the concertina binding, and this is so clear. That is an amazing distressing tool, too - what brand is it? I haven't seen anything like that before in the UK.

    Thanks for sharing!
