3D Vignettes were introduced almost 2 years ago and along the journey, our readers have begged us not to abandon the concept but to keep adding on. As always, your wish is our command! Introducing 3D Vignette Mini-Albums. When the first 3D Vignettes came out, we fashioned them into mini albums using the familiar side piece and slots but now we've made it permanent with a Universal Hinge. Plus we've added a whole collection of dies you can use inside the mini-album including two new shaped card profiles and a new Cinch and Go Cottage Bloom Flower that can be used as a dimensional flower or a flat flower inside the mini-album. Stay tuned as you see a mini-album from each Creative Team Member and card that highlights one of the dies used in the mini-album.
About 3D-Vignette Mini Albums
When the response to the first 3D Vignette cards turned into mini albums blog hop brought such a positive response, readers asked for more. Becca designed an easy to fold Universal Hinge that makes it easy to convert your 3D Vignette cards into Mini Albums. Staying true to her mix and match budget sensibility, of course, all of the elements of this new collection can be used to make flat cards, can be used with original 3D Vignette designs, and older 3D Vignette dies can be refreshed and used with the mini-albums.
Best of all, if you have ever been too overwhelmed to create a mini-album or a scrapbook page, take heart. Since your choices are mix and match, we've taken all of the guess work out. The small format is card-sized which makes it do-able for those of you accustomed to working on a small card size project. We've made albums that are tiny up to 6 x 6" and 8 x 8.
My Projects For Today
First up is Spellbinders S6-164 - Grand Crested Tower.
Here are what the dies I've used in my mini-album actually looks like.
For my project today I made shaped mini album with the pictures of my little daughter :-) I used Spellbinders S6-164 - Grand Crested Tower to create pages in my album. For the binding mechanism I used Spellbinders S5-409 - Universal Accordion Fold Spine. The cover I decorated with Spellbinders S4-1026 - I Carry Your Heart.
Here on the picture above on the right hand side I created a corner belly bind using a border from Spellbinders S4-1033 - Woven Trellis Corners and Border. And on the picture below I used a corner from the same die set.
Here, in the bottom right hand side corner, I added a little flower from Spellbinders S4-1029 - Grateful Thankful Blessed.
The middle of my album I decorated with two beautiful frames from Spellbinders S4-1027 - Double Halo Oval.
Here at the bottom right corner I created a decorative flap using elements from Spellbinders S4-1032 - 3D Interactive Pivot Banner.
On my last page I added beautiful frame with a heart from Spellbinders S4-1026 - I Carry Your Heart.
On the spine I added a lovely panel from Spellbinders S4-1031 - Decorative Edges and Spines.
In addition, I've made two cards using the same die I used in my mini album.
My first card is 3D Vignette card. To create my card I used Spellbinders S6-164 - Grand Crested Tower and Spellbinders S4-1026 - I Carry Your Heart.
The side panels that are needed to create 3D Vignette card I used from Spellbinders S6-138 - Grand Arch 3D Vignettes. I have just trimmed it a bit so it will fit the height of the new Grand Crested Tower.
I decorated my card with handmade flowers from Spellbinders S4-982 - Cinch and Go Flowers IV.
My second card I decorated with Spellbinders S4-1026 - I Carry Your Heart.
I die cut the panel with 'I carry your heart with me' twice. Once in mirror gold and once in ombre pink. I layered all panels on 3D tape to add dimension.
For my background I used the largest rectangle from Spellbinders S5-308 - Hemstitch Rectangle.
These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE
