It’s true. Before I discovered Stampin’ Up!, I was a scrapbooker. Now that I’m a die-hard stamping fan, I don’t spend the time on 12 x 12″ scrapbook pages like I did in my “pre-SU” days.
Sure, I do a few pages here and there, but my real passion comes from actually FINISHING projects now, as opposed to starting things that were likely to take 5 years to get even halfway completed.
I tend to do more digital scrapbooking (with My Digital Studio, of course — some of my Cruise pages from this year and more here). And I also like little quick album projects, like this On Board Briefcase project.
So I wanted to share another quick album idea. This project was adapted from a Make N Take on the Stampin’ Up! Cruise from several years ago (2007?). My Stamps in the Mail Club members from last Round also got to make this project one month. You can now sign up for my NEW Round of Stamps in the Mail Club!

The album construction is really simple–just start with three pieces of 4 x 12″ Whisper White cardstock and score each at 4″ and 8″. Then zig-zag fold them and attach to each other to make the album backbone. Then add cover and decorate the pages as you choose!
**TIP** One important thing to remember: attach the closure ribbon ONLY to the back of the book. If you attach it to the front and the back, your album won’t fold open like this one.
Two fabulous things about the Stamps in the Mail Club… 1) you get all the stamps, inks, accessories and embellishments that you need for the projects, and 2) you get exclusive Video Tutorials with all my tips for making the projects a snap–4 new videos and 4 new projects each month.
Here’s what past Stamps in the Mail Club members have said about the Club:
Here’s what Debbie K, an 11-round Stamps in the Mail Club subscriber had to say: “I really enjoy the Stamps in the Mail Club because everything you need for a project or card is right there–everything is pre-cut. The directions are clear and easy, and then you have the directions that you can use on future projects. I love it.”
And Dawn H, another Stamps in the Mail Club veteran shared this thought: “Stamps in the mail club is an awesome way to get creative ideas. A fabulous way to build up your supplies at little cost. Stamps in the mail is like taking a class, only you don’t have to leave the comforts of your home. Everything is delivered to your door. I highly recommend Stamps in the mail! Besides the demonstrator is awesome!”
