Decorating The Paperbag Mini Album – Highly Requested Demo

It’s finally here! The Demo I promised back in July has been filmed and you can find it below. I’ve gone with a Christmas woodland theme this time with the Foxy Friends stamps.

Measurements are down below and here are some detailed photographs of the finished album…








Cover – 3-3/4″ x 11-5/8″ or 12″ – Score @ 2-3/8″, 3-1/2″, 8″ & 9″
Cover Belly Band – 11-5/8″ x 1-1/4″
Page Belly Bands – 4″ x 1-1/2 – Score @ 1/4″ turn 180 and score again @ 1/4″
Page Mats – 3-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ (11)
Inserts – 4″ x 3-1/4″ (8)
1″ Circle punch for the tabs (16)

I haven’t given measurements for the other mats on the inside and outside cover – the sizes will depend on whether you have used a UK A4 cardstock or a 12×12. To make your measurements, (I have used a 1/8″ border) trim your card and papers 1/4″ smaller each time. I hope that makes sense.

The papers (Warmth and Cheer) that I used for the album are currently in our sale for £4.50 – to get them before Christmas you will need to order them by Tuesday 13th December. These papers are also retiring and will be available for the rest of the month, or until stocks are depleted.

Product List

Hostess Code Club – I reward my customers when they shop with me

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!

This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page
