8th Day of Christmas | Mini Album with Cascading Pocket Pages

We are making a really cute and fun mini album for Day 8 of this series. It’s actually quite simple to make, but it looks really complicated. I like those types of projects the best, don’t you?

I’ve decided to utilise the free papers that came with issue 167 of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine. During this series I’ve featured some beautiful papers, but they’ve had a tendency to sell out! This magazine has free papers designed by American Crafts and comes with a wonderful stamp set and matching die for the stag’s head. All dimensions and supply links are down below.


Pages – 3.5″x 6.5″ In landscape score at 3″ & 6″ then turn once & score at 3″ (x6)
Page mats – 2.75″x 2.75 (x12)
