From Luvlee Scrappin-Accordion Mini Album Insert

Sorry picture is sideways and I don't know how to rotate it.  I learned a few things doing this accordion file insert. 

1. I could use my Sizzix adorning accents long ways through the big shot but not the cuttlebug.

2.  If I altered my Sizzix embossing folder by trimming the bottom edge of it, right up to where the design starts I could fit it long ways through the Big Shot but again not the Cuttlebug. The Cuttlebug embossing folders fit long ways through the Cuttlebug without having to be altered.

Thank you to Leeanne for the tutorial at
She is luvleescrappin on youtube.

Here is a sneak peak at some of the elements I'm working on for my paper bag mini.  This is my first mini of any kind.

Several items shown were from Leeanne's tutorials: the mini roses and the coin envelope pocket book. This I altered a little because I didn't have any coin envelopes.  I used a tea bag cut from my Cricut cart tags, bags, boxes and more 2.  I think this maybe made it a little thicker but it worked well enough.  Oh, also the acetate pocket I got from Leeanne.

Another sneak peak at my mini.  Some match books I made using the same Cricut tea bag cut but much smaller, they are 2"x2".  This was also my first time trying my hand at quilling.  I like it and I plan on doing some more.  Mini is almost finished, just need to add a few finishing touches and bind it.
