Accordion Mini Album with Spellbinders A Gilded Life Embellishments (Giveaway Closed)

Accordion Mini Album using Embellishments from Spellbinders!

Accordion Mini Album – Funny thing happened when I posted my Spellbinders Spellblogger DT Package for May (in my  YouTube channel).  Many of you said “I didn’t know Spellbinders sold trims!!!” After the third comment like this, I knew I had made the right choice for my May package!  As a fellow crafter I enjoy diving into many of the popular paper crafting fads of the moment.  But every now and again, I like to take a walk off the beaten path, just to see what I come across with.  And my oh my! Do I have a treat for you!

Spellbinders has this amazing luxury trims, bling, and metals line called A Gilded Life.  Their trims are very beautiful, easy to work with, and very affordable.  Not only did I use trims from A Gilded Life in my Gift Card Holder Tote Bags, but I decided to put them to good use in this beautiful and very glamorous Accordion Mini Album as well.

Accordion Mini Album

This accordion mini album stands at 6 x 4 1/4 with 10 spots for your favorite pictures in the pages within.  It has a black with gold dots ribbon closure, and the front is decorated with many elements from Spellbinders.  On the top you see a die-cut using Spellbinders Die D-Lites Swirl Delight S2-142, and on that die-cut I decided to add a Jeweled Boxed  Button GLB-002.  Underneath the Swirl Delight die-cut I hot glued a strip of bling from the Spellbinders A Gilded Life Antique Gold Trim Embellishments GLVT-003.  On each of the sides I added a piece of floral trim from A Gilded Life Ballet Pink Trim Embellishments GLVT-004.  The pearl trims are from my stash; and the beautiful die cut flower is from Spellbinders Die D-Lites Blooms Three S2-046.

  2. Sandy this is stunning! I’d be so honored to win this set. Ty for the chance. Hugs Donna

  3. Once again thank you for your tutorials, you have a wonderful way of teaching and I just love your format. It makes it possible for me to try things I normally wouldn’t attempt to do because of how difficult it looks. But you make it look so fun and easy! I look forward to Future tutorials again thank you so much. P.s could you please send to me in your drawing , I would greatly appreciate that thank you! P.s.s I started buying spellbinders dies because of your u tube videos. Thank you for sharing!

  4. The mini album is outstanding! Again with the gold and black. Oh so pretty! Did you say that was a medium sized pizza box or you made the box the size of a pizza box? I listened again and I still missed it.

  5. Sandi, this album is stunningly gorgeous!! OMG!! Such a beautiful prize package , thank you so much for the chance to win. You are awesome and your videos are great you teach well!! thanks again.

  6. Lovely combination of paper and die cut outs to give this project that fancy and elegant look. Nice touch to house it in the pizza box.

  7. Super! Super! Beautiful! You definitely have an eye for elegance!!! 💕🌸💕🌸💕🌸
    Hugs~ Catalina🌸

  8. Thank you! Funny thing Donna. I knew I wanted to house the accordion mini in a box. I took the dimensions of the album, and once I had applied it to my box, I looked at it and was thrilled to see that I had made a snail mail pizza box! Now that I have the dimensions for it, I won’t have to purchase them! 😀

  9. Thank you Diana! I must admit, Tutorials are not my forte! When I first started making tutorial videos, there was so much I was leaving out. My earlier tut videos were so frustrating to watch! LOL But as time passed, I really payed closer attention to what I was saying and caught myself on important items I was leaving out of the equation. My tutorials are better now; but I’m still a work in progress 😀

  10. It’s a hand-made mini pizza box. Funny thing, it was not my intention to make one. I knew I wanted to house the mini in a box. After applying the measurements and cutting and then the gluing, it looked more and more like a snail mail pizza box! So I went with that! 😀

  11. I’m glad you’re enjoying my tutorials. I’m always looking to improve that aspect of my channel. Lighting and camera angles are always a battle for me since I craft in such a limited amount of space. Your feedback is greatly appreciated! 🙂

  12. Another beautiful and stunning creation Sandi, the pizza box and album are over the top awesomeness. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us. Hugs, Sue,(msmartinigirl1)

  13. Sandi , I have fell in love with the alum and the box. There is not one thing I don’t like about. I really don’t have words enough to express! I love the paper it’s amazing. I love the lace I just love how it put together. It’s really prefect! How I would love to take classes from you . I love shabby chic. How prefect this would be to give to my granddaughter due to be born in 2 weeks . Or make a alum of photos of or dad growing up. Of course I could think of a lot of things to do with the prize lol. Thank you for sharing and the chance to win . Bonnie

  14. Stunning Sandi. The album and box are so pretty. Great work as usual

  20. You can! Trust me you can! If I can do this, so can you. With quality items from Spellbinders and great paper, you too can craft like a pro!

  21. Thank you Ronda! I LOVE sharing my creations with all of you! Not just through my FREE tutorials, but through these hand-made giveaways as well! There’s plenty more to come hon. I craft because I find it relaxing. It’s a mode of self-expression for me. I have a teensy, tiny craft room and there’s no way I can keep everything that I make. So my intention is to continue to hold these giveaways as a way to thank all those who support my channel and blog. 🙂

  22. I have a playlist on YouTube where I share my tutorials with you all. Look for it. I think I named it Tutorials or Paper Crafting tutorials…. I don’t remember but it’s one of those. Thank you for leaving such nice compliments. It keeps the fire burning. Hugs!

  23. Your mini and box are amazingly gorgeous. I love the trims and embellishments. I would have never thought to use a pizza box. That was a very clever idea. I have enjoyed your creations and the use of the Spellbinders dies. Thank you so much.

  29. Awww, thank you so much Carolyn! I love sharing everything that I make; and I’m glad I was able to inspire. Hugs back!

  30. The box is handmade. Not an actual pizza box! LOL I could just imagine the cravings every time the winner opened the box! LOL I called it a “pizza box” because that’s what everyone was using/altering months ago for happy mail snail mail projects 😀

  31. It’s not an actual pizza box. I called it that because this is what many of the ladies were using for happy mail snail mail, way back when. I actually took the measurements of the mini album, and once the box was cut and glued, it resembled a pizza box to me 😀

  32. THank you hon. But it’s actually not a pizza box. I called it that because it resembled one. I made the box from scratch 😀

  33. Such lovely, elegant pieces of art. You are very creative and you can tell how much love you have put into these, TFS.

  34. Love your accordion mini album and a beautiful presentation box to put it in! Everything you make is beautiful! tfs sweetie! Big hugs, Christine
