Graphic 45 Mini Album Journal!!!!

Just finished this last Friday and love the way it turned out! I used the Strathmore Drawing Pad as the book base but instead of using scrap papers like I've done in the past, I used the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue Paper Collection. I LOVE THE COLORS!!!!! Every page in this book makes me smile. Maybe I'm just nuts, but at least I am a happy one..... hehehehe.

There are 21 pages in this book which would mean 42 photos so to see them all, please go to You Tube and you can see the WHOLE thing on my video. This is the link, I think...

I will try and put a You Tube Link on here somewhere....ANOTHER new thingy! Sigh.....

Or just do a search for Paperkitz on You Tube!!! That would probably be your best bet until further notice...(HUGS!!!)


  1. I really am speechless,It was great to see how you work out your designs,love it all as usual ,and so nice to hear you speaking on the video.

  2. You make me blush, Mary! I've missed you and your tortoise!! Thank you for your kind words! Now that we are connected on You Tube, I need to figure out how to link our blogs together! Love and hugs!

  3. Loved the video and hopped on over here to your blog. I just adored all the little pockets and all the different types of pockets. A feast for the eyes. Looking forward to your next video, thanks for sharing, best wishes Sharon :-)

  4. This is fabulous! I saw this last night, and watched your I bought some Strathmore pads for myself! I have to do this, it is so awesome! I just got done watching the videos again. Thank you for sharing how to do this with us!

  6. I made it!!! The link to my blog is
    Please stop by and let me know what you think. The pages are kind of bare because I am going to fill them with recipes, then add some decorations. It is too funny, after I made it, I started making the album out of greeting cards, and I see you made one too! HAHA! I love what you do, can't wait to see more!

  7. I LOVE your recipe album design and idea, Creative Ops!!! I can't wait to see more of your creations, too! Thank you for sharing! KitB

  8. Hello Kit,

    I few weeks ago I found your youtube film about making this journal and I loved it immediately, and I would love to make one, but what to put in it?
    Since a few years I am making a December Daily, and while I was thinking about how to make the base for this year, I thought about your journal and decided to make one as the base.
    I bought some pritty paper from BoBunny and made the base and I had so much fun to make it.
    As it is now December, I am working on it everyday.
    And than I had a stack of Christmas Cards for years, all that remind me of a Christmas Carol and now I am making a Christmas Carol journal again with your journal as inspiration
    So I would like to thank you so much for charing all your creativity. You have a new fan!
