Enjoy The Little Things In Life Design Team - Vacation Memories

Image may contain: text

Welcome back crafty people 😊 I am so happy you could join me today.
The Video Blog Hop Design Team are a groups of demonstrators from all over the world. We on the last Wednesday of each month.
We have some wonderful projects and tutorials to share with you today, we hope to inspire you with new ideas and hopefully give you somehelpful along the way.
Today's theme is - Vacation Memories.

 As I have just recently returned from New Zealand paper crafting retreat  now is a perfect time to share something I created over there thanks to a class 😊 Plus you get to see some more of my pictures.

Our guest tutor while on the retreat was Susan Wong and she taught us how to make this gorgeous Straw Mini Album.
And I straight away, asked if it was OK to share this fabulous idea with you all πŸ˜‡

Here is a link for the written tutorial for this album that I have written up and added to my Google Docs to share..
You must have google drive to view this document.

As I have had 2 sick children for the past week and a half my time hasn't been condusive for creating a video.
Susan provided me with the original video from Renate Ecklmayr that she used to learn how to create these cute albums.
I will give you this link to Renate's blog HERE (the blog is written in german but you can use the translate button)
The video is also in German

This video along with my written tutorial will give you an idea of how the album goes together.

I almost have a video created though, and I will upload it to my You Tube Chanel as soon as it is ready.

I will now add a couple of more pictures of my already filled album for your viewing pleasure.
