Here are some of the measurements you need to know in order to make the inside pages of the mini album.

Scored at 5 3/4" and 11.5” on the long side
Punch mark for the Envelope Punch Board – 2”
(watch the tutorial for the explanations on how and where exactly to punch)

- Cardstock measuring 5.5” X 5.5” for the inside photo mats (6 pc)
Punch mark for the Envelope Punch Board – 1 3/8”
(watch the tutorial for the explanations on how and where exactly to punch)

- Cardstock measuring 5 3/4" X 4 3/4" (6 pc)
Scored at 4 1/4" on the short side

  6. I love this! I'm attempting this. Have been at it for 2 evenings. I'm making it for my granddaughter, who was born February 11, 2018. I've been crafting just over a year now. Mine is turning out really nice. I'm using pink baby pattern paper over white card stock. My sister may want one for her granddaughter, expected in April. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent.
