Welcome to my blog. My blog is mainly for the sharing of the many projects I make either for swaps, for gifts or just because I was inspired by something I saw on the internet and wanted to give it a try as well. I hope you enjoy what you see and if you have any questions be sure to send me a comment.

More Mini Shutter Books...

I am one of those people that when I learn something new, I get addicted to making them for a period of time. Such is the case of the Mini Shutter Books I featured in my last post.  These were actually samples I made for the class I taught with my stamp club.

I can't recall how I came across this YouTube artist, Helen Griffin from the UK, but was excited to see this project. A modified version of a Shutter Card, that she created as a tri fold mini book.

I have made shutter cards before, here is the first one I've made.

Here is one I made from a modified version in Splitcoaststampers' newsletter.

And here is the book version I made from Helen's video. I love how it turned out. 

Now check out Helen's video tutorial here:
