A Christmas Mini Album and a great discount from Kraft Outlet

I love LOVE to make mini scrapbook albums.  The only problem is that I am as slow as Christmas (which will be here before you know it!).  I'm a perfectionist and want everything so so and that translates to--I take a long time to put a project together!  I'm the same way with cards.  That's why you don't see me posting constantly like some of those VERY gifted cardmakers out there.  Soooo---when our execs at Papercraft Star asked if I would be willing to do a tutorial for the blog using supplies from our November sponsor, I jumped on the chance.  (1) Kraft Outlet products are PERFECT for mini album crafting and (2)  I got the supplies far ahead enough to have the time to make a mini.  LOL  This mini was probably turned out in record time for me and I'm really happy with it.  I hope you like it too.
     For the tutorial, I made two videos and they went live on YouTube today.  The first one is detailed instructions on exactly how to construct the base of the album.  The second video is a page by page run through of the entire completed album.  You can find both videos on my YouTube channel, Tracylovestoscrap.  Just click on the links below if you'd like to view the vids.

     In conjunction with the release of the videos, our sponsor, Kraft Outlet is offering for this week an exclusive discount for our readers at Papercraft Star.... shop now and receive 15 percent off your total order at the Kraft Outlet! To claim your discount all you need to do is use the voucher code STAR15 at check out! This savings won't last long, so hurry and get your shopping on!
     Here are a few more photos from the album.

     Kraft cardstock, tags, coin envelope and sleeves, envelopes, notecards, vellum, bakers twine  . . . those are just some of the things you'll find at Kraft Outlet.  Take advantage of the great discount being offered and stock up on your crafting supply needs.
     Back tomorrow with another card and guess what!  I colored the image with my Copics!  Don't get excited.  I used a whole 5 markers and three were for skin.  LOL  My paper came in the mail today and I couldn't believe the difference.  I still have a loonnnggg way to go though. :)
     If you haven't made your project yet for this week's challenge at Papercraft Star, you can find the details on my left hand sidebar.  Don't forget when you enter, you not only get a chance to win that weeks prize, but your name goes in the hat for the monthly Grand Prize too!
